Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Bournemouth
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 24 June 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium.
The Wolves are level on points with Manchester United at this point. However, the latter are placed higher in the table due to better goal difference, and this has given them possession of the final Champions League spot, while the Wolves have to be content with a Europa spot.
But, this game week, the Red Devils are taking on the Blades, who are desperately going after a European spot, and this means that the Manchester outfit has the potential to drop points. In the meantime, the Wolves are taking on one of the worst teams in the whole competition.
If the hosts of the day manage to post a win this Wednesday, it could be hugely beneficial for them in their chase for a European ticket. Considering the struggling form of the Cherries and the unbeaten run of the Wolverhampton Wanderers, a win for the latter seems more likely.

Wolves vs Bournemouth: Prediction
The Wolves recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day, against West Ham. The guests had to face an impenetrable defense throughout the game, and they were even kept at bay for almost 75 minutes. But they did manage to finally break through, and slot in two goals.
In the meantime, the Cherries lost 0-2 at home the past match-day, against Crystal Palace. The guests raced to a 0-2 lead even before the 25th minute, and held the scoreline till the final whistle.
As things stand, the Wolves are easily the favorites. They are placed in the top-most tier of the table, and are going after a European ticket, while their opposite number is a frontrunner to get relegated.
Moreover, this whole season, the Wolves have lost at home just against Chelsea, Liverpool, and Tottenham in the league, and once in the Europa League. On the other hand, the Cherries have lost nine of their past ten road trips, and have a total of one win away from home since September.
In addition, the Wolves have a 100% winning record in PL h2h clashes at this venue, and have not conceded a single goal in the process as well. Taking these factors into consideration, it’s concluded that Wolverhampton Wanderers are on course to record a huge win this Wednesday.
