Bournemouth vs Norwich
English League Cup
Date: Tuesday, 30 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth).
Norwich City travel to Dorset to take on Bournemouth in one of the most entertaining last 16 round ties in this term of League Cup.
The Canaries were stopped right at this stage of the competition last season when they fell to Arsenal. They’ll once again be up against the top flight opposition, but with much bigger chances of an upset given their recent form in the Championship football.
Norwich were regular promotional candidates in last three years, but never managed to live up to the ambitions. They finally seem to have what it takes to challenge at least promotional play-offs under Daniel Farke this season.
Norwich City sit 6th after 14 games in the second tier of the English football. They proved strength in back-to-back wins over promotional hopefuls Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa in last two rounds. Can they take advantage of the momentum and bring such form to the League Cup?
Bournemouth vs Norwich: Head-to-head
This will only be the fifth head to head encounter between the two teams.
Norwich were slightly more successful so far having picked up two wins, a draw and a defeat.
Three or more goals were seen in each of last three head to head contests.
Bournemouth vs Norwich: Prediction
Much like their counterparts, the Cherries have done very well so far in the season. They also stand 6th in their respective division (top flight) after a remarkable run of two wins and a draw in last three league outings.
Eddie Howe’s men notched an impressive nine-goal tally in three straight wins in all competitions before playing a goalless draw at home to Southampton ten days ago.
Bournemouth are unbeaten at Vitality Stadium this season. They won five and drew two of seven official home games so far in the campaign. Looking at both teams’ form, the home win & BTTS seems to be the standout pick here. The bet you’ll hardly make a mistake with is both teams to score.
