Bournemouth vs Newcastle
English Premier League
Date: 11 February 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth).

The worst and the best defensive lines in the Premier League will come across each other on Saturday afternoon as Bournemouth host Newcastle in Matchday No 23 at Vitality Stadium.

The match has a big significance for both outfits who are fighting different types of battles in this term of the competition.

Bournemouth are currently second from bottom in the league ladder. They are one point shy of Leeds and Everton at the moment.

However, the Cherries will desperately need to find a way out of the current crisis if they want to keep ground on the rest of the pack in the battle for avoiding the relegation.

Gary O’Neil’s men lost seven and drew one of the previous eight outings in all competitions. The latest of the failures came seven days ago when the Cherries conceded an 88th-minute goal to lose 1-0 at the hands of the in-form Brighton side.

Bournemouth have failed to find the back of the net in six of the last eight games across competitions.

This is by no means promising ahead of the clash with the Premier League’s best defense. Newcastle have only conceded 12 goals since the beginning of the season.

The Magpies drew in four of the previous five league affairs but they still sit inside the top-four in the standings.

Nevertheless, the fifth-placed Spurs are just one point away (Newcastle have a match in hand on them as well), meaning Eddie Howe’s men can ill afford any more slip ups if they want to preserve the pole position in the quest for the Champions League football next year.

Bournemouth vs Newcastle Head-to-head

  • These two teams have already met each other twice this season. Bournemouth shockingly held the Magpies to a 1-1 draw in the Premier League game at St. Andrew’s Park in September, while Newcastle advanced from the League Cup tie with a 1-0 victory at the same place three months later.
  • Newcastle will go into this on the back of four victories and two draws in the last six meetings with the Cherries.
  • Interestingly, we have seen goals at both ends in six of the last seven H2H matches between these counterparts.

Bournemouth vs Newcastle Prediction

Bournemouth failed to score in six of the last eight outings across competitions while the Magpies conceded just one goal in the previous seven Premier League games.

Newcastle to win to nil has to be the way to go at the 2.37 odds. We will also back the Magpies’ talisman Callum Wilson (who was on target in a 1-1 stalemate against West Ham last weekend) to score the first goal of the game at the 4.33 odds.

Bournemouth vs Newcastle Betting Tips

  • Newcastle to win to nil @ 2.37 odds
