Reasons for betting on Bournemouth vs Brighton and Hove Albion tip
Bournemouth will meet Brighton Hove Albion at Vitality Stadium and try to put down the first victory. The Cherries lost 4 straight matches. Eddie Howe has many problems, starting with injuries, bad attack and of course poor results. If he suffers another defeat, things could get messy for his managerial position. On the other hand, the newbie in this league is actually solid, with three straight games without a defeat.
Only one goal in the previous 4 rounds should tell you everything about this team. Meanwhile, their defense is not much better than the colleagues from the attack, and they allowed 8 goals during that span. In the most recent 8 encounters, Bournemouth conceded at least one goal. Things are not looking better at home either. The previous victory came all the way back in May this year. Since then, 3 losses and one draw, is the record of the Cherries when including friendly games. Injuries are also troubling the hosts. Ryan Fraser is doubtful for this event, while Adam Federici is out until the end of the year. However, Nathan Knight and Junior Stanislas will be eligible.
Brighton Hove Albion overview
The Seagulls need to be pleased with their current results. After 4 rounds they have one victory and draw apiece and two defeats. And when we add the fact that they advanced to next round of Football Cup, it’s probably more than they expected. Currently, they have 3 consecutive games without a loss.
After the opening of the championship with two games in which they haven’t scored, Brighton Hove Albion conceded only one goal in the previous three matches. Their biggest advantage is strong physical defense, and that is the main reason for low efficiency in their games. During past 5 events, on 4 occasions we saw less than 3 goals. Steve Sidwell is once again doubtful for this game, same as Tomer Hemed. Meanwhile, Glenn Murray and Isiah Brown should be in the combination.
Head to head matches
This is something where Bournemouth has a lot of success. The Cherries haven’t lost in the previous 6 meetings with the Seagulls. They have 3 wins and draws apiece, and they scored at least one goal during the whole streak. When these two sides meet, we don’t see high efficiency. 5 of those 6 encounters ended under 2.5 goals.
Eddie Howe and Chris Hughton had three clashes as managers. Howe has one win, and Hughton two.
Prediction for Bournemouth vs Brighton and Hove Albion tip
When we look at the tradition, things are clear about the possible outcome. We are referring to the tradition regarding goals.
Under 2.5 will be our first proposition. This game will have big significance for both sides, and we do not expect any bold approaches.
For the second bet, we would take both teams not to score. Low efficiency, combined with the current situation and their previous meetings suggests this kind of development.
