BEFORE A DIFFICULT FINISE.
Burnley won a week ago from Wolverhampton and thanks to that he jumped 5 points from the relegation zone. It was an extremely important victory, especially if we look at the The Clarets calendar. In the last four rounds Sean Dyche’s team will face Chelsea, Manchester City, Everton and Arsenal. Therefore, the next two matches can be crucial for them – this is Saturday from Bournemouth and the next from Cardiff.
- Bournemouth – won only 1 of the last 8 matches (2: 0 at Huddersfield), but still has a big 10-point advantage over the relegation zone, which only shows how well he did in the first part of the season – he lost only 2 out of 10 meetings from the beginning of the season. Wisienki did not win any of the last 3 matches at Vitality Stadium, for the last time a longer series of this type had in December 2017. In good form is Joshua King, who scored 6 goals in the last 5 home games. The injured are Steve Cook, Andrew Surman, Simon Francis and Lewis Cook. After 4 weeks Adam Smith returns to the game.
- Burnley – 17th place and 5 points advantage over the relegation zone. In December, The Clarets were one of the main favorites to drop, rates for their degradation were around 1.35. However, the excellent start of 2019 – 8 matches without a defeat, removed the specter of the decline at Turf Moor. Bookmakers do not believe in the fall of Burnley – they give odds 8: 1. Great in the team The Clarets presents a very young Dwight McNeil, who scored goals in the last two games. The last teenager in the Premier League who scored goals in three consecutive meetings was Romelu Lukaku, in March 2013. The injured are Peter Crouch, Aaron Lennon and Steven Defour.
Forecast: Burnley has won a very important victory over Wolves and now wants to follow the blow. Wisien are currently playing below expectations, but they are always dangerous on their pitch, especially with David Brooks and Callum Wilson in the squad. Wisienki won, however, only 2 of the last 11 games against Bordeaux, who will come to Bournemouth desperate to play there for a favorable result. It is difficult to indicate the favorite of this match. Bournemouth has the advantage of its own pitch, and here in this season only Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City won. However, more determination is on the side of guests. I will bet that there will be goals in this match. Burnley has lost 31 goals in 16 away games (close to 2 for the match), Bournemouth plays bravely, offensively, especially with the rival team from the bottom of the table. The last 5 meetings between these clubs brought results over 2.5 goals. Suggested types: over 2.5 goals – odds 1.86 / both teams will score – odds 1.66 / exact result 2: 1 – odds 7.5.
