England – Championship

Venue: Vitality Stadium.
Bournemouth have confirmed their promotion to the top flight, and they have this huge opportunity to end their campaign in front of the home crowd. The team will be eager to deliver one last worthy performance in order to thank all of their fans for supporting them throughout this harsh campaign.
A win this Saturday will also help them to enter the Premier League with high confidence. And as is known it is not at all going to be easy for them during the next campaign. They will have to be prepared.
In the meantime Millwall are placed eighth in the table and they need a surplus of three points to climb exactly level with the cutoff for the playoffs.
And with just one fixture remaining this season, the team has no other option but to go for a win. And not only do they have to win, but they have to ensure that they have a superb goal difference as well.
Since they do not have anything to lose it is given that they are going to adopt an all-out attack strategy. And this is exactly what Bournemouth want this weekend. They are at home, are high on confidence, and have nothing to lose as well. They have already attained their objective for the season.
As such expect a competitive encounter between the two teams, and anticipate goals to come in plenty.
