Reasons for betting Bournemouth vs. Manchester City tip
Bournemouth and Manchester City are going to open the third round of the English Premier League. The Citizens had a very unpleasant clash against Everton in which they succeeded to snap only one point. The hosts, meanwhile, had a busy week and after two straight losses in the League competition, they were successful in the League Cup.
Both sides will have to give their best in order to record a positive outcome from this match. And from our point of view 3 points are imperative for both teams.
The game will be played at the Vitality Stadium.
The hosts haven’t scored a goal in this campaign. After two games, Bournemouth allowed three goals while, on the other hand, the offensive part of the team was terrible. During the midweek, they played in English football League Cup against Birmingham away from home. The Cherries were better, and despite losing at the half time, they managed to win 1-2. It was their first victory after three defeats in a row and the 6 consecutive game in which they conceded. It was also the 6th straight event where Bournemouth allowed the first goal in the match. Simon Francis will be unavailable for this encounter and Junior Stanislas is doubtful.
Manchester City overview
Despite all the prognosis where Citizens are going to be the biggest favorites for winning the title it seems that something is wrong in their game. Simply Manchester City hasn’t got that flamboyancy like they used to. Sky-blue defeated Brighton Hove Albion in the first game with 2-0, but they were struggling. Against Everton they did not play well and honestly, City didn’t have any luck at some moments. Last 4 games in which they appeared ended with a moderate number of goals between 2 and 3. Benjamin Mendy will be doubtful for this match as he is back in training, but it is still uncertain is he going to start.
Head to head matches
All 4 games in the previous two seasons, City won in a convincing manner. They have scored 15 goals allowing only one, and on 3 occasions Bournemouth allowed 4 or more goals.
After 6 matches in history between these two sides, Manchester has 5 victories and 1 draw, with a total goal difference 17:2.
Prediction for Bournemouth vs. Manchester City tip
Pep Guardiola is going to change something, and that is for sure. It is why we think that the Citizens are going to continue the tradition. Manchester City to win with a handicap -1.5 goals is something profitable. If they open the game early, you could expect a high number of goals.
For the second suggestion, we would take City to score in both halves. The tradition is essential in England, and we are going to follow it.
