Huddersfield vs Bournemouth
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 9 March 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: The John Smith’s Stadium (Huddersfield).
Huddersfield Town picked up a shocking 1-0 victory over top-half Wolverhampton Wanderers ten days ago at The John Smith’s Stadium. Players and the new head coach Jan Siewert knew how to celebrate it on the emotional evening for the rock-bottomed side in the Premier League ladder.
The Terriers hoped to take advantage of the momentum and build on such win when they visited Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend. Nevertheless, they left the AMEX with a 1-0 defeat which kept them at the very foot of the league standings.
Huddersfield will surely play the second division football next year as they sit 13 points shy of the safe zone at the moment. However, the Terriers will still be a tough nut to crack for some Premier League teams, especially on the home patch in New Yorkshire.
Huddersfield vs Bournemouth: Head-to-head
Bournemouth were the dominant force in the most recent history of this match-up.
The Cherries won four, drew one and lost one of past six meetings with Huddersfield Town.
However, Bournemouth only won 2 and lost as many as 7 of 13 away clashes with the Terriers.
There were three or more goals scored in six of past seven head to head outings.
Huddersfield vs Bournemouth: Prediction
Huddersfield’s fine home run in matches against Bournemouth might suggest the visitors could struggle to see off the weakest team in the division here. The Cherries are still on a safe distance from the red zone being nine points above at the moment.
Nevertheless, Eddie Howe’s men will enter this game in a disastrous from. They lost four and drew one of past five league matches. They lost as many as ten on the bounce away from home across competitions.
Based on everything written above, we would not be shocked to see the hosts pull off the second consecutive home win in what is likely going to be a low-scoring contest against a side which found it tough to produce in the final third lately.
