Bournemouth vs Tottenham Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Thursday, 9 July 2020. Kick-off 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET at the Vitality Stadium.
Europe seemed like a distant dream for Jose Mourinho’s men. But the Portuguese gaffer somehow has made it possible that his team is still in contention for the Europa League.
With five match-days remaining in the competition, they are in possession of the final position that affords a ticket to the continental extravaganza. However, some truly competitive teams are below them, and are desperately coming after the spot. The Spurs do not have the luxury to relax.
It’s fortunate that they are taking on a relegation-battler this Thursday. The Cherries are placed 19th in the table, and have been one of the worst in the whole competition – based on overall as well as recent form.
Moreover, Mourinho’s men have a great h2h record against them as well. Likely, expect a Tottenham win this game week. However, they will have to be careful, as Eddie Howe’s men will leave no stone unturned in their desire to avoid getting the boot.
Bournemouth vs Tottenham: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 3-2 win for the Spurs.
- They had also won five of the preceding six encounters.
- The team also managed to record nine of the preceding ten victories.
- They also scored a total of 32 goals from the last eleven match-ups.
- Disregarding two fixtures, the guests have scored four or more goals in all of their visits to this venue, this past decade.
Bournemouth vs Tottenham: Prediction
The Cherries lost 5-2 on the road the last match-day, against Manchester United. Meanwhile, Mourinho’s men managed to secure a narrow 1-0 win at home the past game week, against Everton.
As things stand, Spurs have the upper hand. They have been one of the best teams in the league for the past several years, and at present, they are desperate for a European spot. On the other hand, their counterparts are one of the worst teams in the competition, and are battling relegation.
Going on, Howe’s men are on a five-fixture losing run, and had lost seven of their preceding eight games. They had also conceded two or more goals in seven of their past eight match-ups.
Furthermore, they have a single win against this rival in the past 12 years, and have lost five of the former six h2h games. Note that they have also conceded a total of 32 goals from the previous eleven such encounters.
Taking into account these observations, expect a winning performance from Tottenham this Thursday.
