Burnley vs Bournemouth | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Many of the experts were predicting that Burnley would be a bit weaker this year than in the previous one, but no one expected to see them at the bottom of the table. Likewise, nobody could foresee for Bournemouth that they are going to be in the place which leads to the European competitions. Eddie Howe and his Cherries are looking good at the moment, and if they stay unbeaten here, this start of the season might turn out to be a superb one.
For Burnley, this is a match in which they need to win. Simply, the Clarets can’t afford to give any more points, especially at their Turf Moore, which was a genuine stronghold of this team in the previous campaign. Bournemouth is entering this clash after they demolished Leicester City at home with 4:2. The moral is high, and they have nothing to fear from.
Sean Dyche has to do something in order to wake his squad. At the moment, Burnley is dead last in the Premiership with only one point, and four straight losses in this competition. But that is not the worst thing. In five games they allowed 10 goals, an average of two per match, and that is way above their average last season. Back then, after 38 fixtures, Burnley conceded only 39 goals. It could be that these bad results are a consequence of their international obligations. To refresh your memory, the Clarets were playing the Europa League qualifications and eventually failed to reach this competition. Greek powerhouse Olympiacos eliminated them in the last round with 2:4 on aggregate.
The Cherries are playing very well, and it our belief that the majority of credits should go to Eddie Howe, who will become the top manager in England, sooner or later. There is no doubt about that. His team plays very attractively, and what is more important, they are producing solid results over the last few years. Bournemouth’s start in this campaign indicated that they might replace their today’s rival, as one of the clubs who fought their way into the European scene. The Cherries have only one defeat, and that was against Chelsea, but they quickly recovered and beat Leicester with 4:2. Also, they managed to progress into the second round of the EFL, after eliminating MK Dons, routinely with 3:0. Games this team plays are very efficient, and four of the lastest five ended with over 2.5 goals. So far, Howe’s boys scored 10 goals in the EPL, which has to be respected.
