Derby County vs Bournemouth
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 19 January 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Pride Park.
The Cherries are one of the best teams in the competition this season, and after the campaign has completed half of its schedule, the team has found themselves a spot in the podium.
They are determined to get promoted anyhow, and they would prefer to do it directly, rather than take on the route of the playoffs.
However, they have dropped an alarming number of points in recent game weeks, and something needs to be done soon if they are serious about their promotion aspirations.
Luckily, they are pitted against one of the weakest teams in the contest this season – the Rams.
Note that Wayne Rooney’s men are placed 23rd in a table of 24 teams, and even Sheffield Wednesday (whose six points were deducted by the federation) have climbed over them in the standings.
By the looks of things, expect Bournemouth (who were in fact relegated from the Premier League at the end of 2019-20) to deliver a winning performance this Tuesday against Derby.

Derby vs Bournemouth Prediction
Wayne Rooney’s men lost 0-1 at home the last match-day, against Rotherham. In the meantime, Jason Tindall’s men lost 0-1 at home against Luton.
Going on, the Rams are on a three-match losing run, and they were winless in 24 of their past 29 overall fixtures. Note that they had also failed to score in four of their previous five matches.
And at home, they were winless in 17 of their last 18 overall games as well.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 20 of their previous 25 overall fixtures, and they remained so in nine of their previous eleven match-ups.
They are also a recently relegated team from the Premier League, and they are currently on pace to get promoted at the end of the season.
By the looks of things, expect Bournemouth to emerge victorious this Tuesday.
