AFC Bournemouth strong on the road

AFC Bournemouth strong on the road

AFC Bournemouth looks to get their third win on the road with a win against Southampton, who will host this game. This meeting will be on April 28, 2023, at 2:45 AM (GMT+8). Considering the current format, it seems like Southampton is at the disadvantage despite playing at home. They are actually winless in their last four home matches in the league, which is the opposite for Bournemouth. Bournemouth is currently campaigning to get their third straight victory on the road with a win here. These two teams are desperate for wins, considering their places in the league table. With that, expect both Bournemouth and Southampton to work harder in this game.

These two southern English rivals already met for 33 times across all competitions, and it was the hosts who is the better team here. From those 33 games, the hosts were able to win 16 matches, while the visitors only have eight wins. Although they are in a good run before this match, they still cannot be confident here. They currently holds the worst defensive record in the league this season. In fact, they conceded 63 goals in just 32 matches, which is not a good point for them. As for the hosts, although they are at the basement, they have a good momentum in this game. From their last 10 meetings against the visitors, they only lost to one, and won three in a row. This is where they will gain confidence for this game.

Bournemouth is now seeking to win three consecutive wins on the road with a win in this match. Unfortunately, they were not able to score their third straight win in the league against West Ham. On that match, they were hammered by West Ham in a 4-0 win, which puts them at the 15th in the league table. They fell down at the 15th, while that win puts West Ham at the 13th of the league table. They are now with 34 points, but a win for Bournemouth could make them climb at the 14th, with 36 points. Now that they will once again play on the road, they are looking to show how strong they are in that format. In addition, it seems like playing at Southampton’s home is an advantage for them. In fact, hey scored three goals in each of their last two matches at Southampton’s home.

While Ryan Fredericks, and Junio Stanislas both remains on the sideline, Hamed Traore is set to be assessed in this match. Jack Stephens on the other hand is ineligible to play here, as he is facing his mother club.

Southampton is a team sitting at the basement of the league table with 24 points. Although it is unlikely for them to enter the next round, they are still aiming for wins to at least finish this season in a good note. However, their current run is the opposite of what they are aiming for. In fact, they remain to be winless in their last seven league games, but they were a surprise, when they held Arsenal, the league leaders in a 3-3 draw. On that match, they even led as much as two goals, but Arsenal is just too much for them. At home, Southampton only recorded two wins this season. However, when going against Bournemouth at home, it seems like they are doing good. In fact, they only have one loss at home against the visitors across all competitions. For this match, they are hoping for a positive result, to at least end their season positively.

Che Adams, Mohammed Salisu, and Juan Larios all remains to be unavailable here, due to their injuries. Valentino Livramento on the other hand is still building up his fitness, so he might not be available here as well. Jan Bednarek on the other hand is still a doubt, after withdrawing in the first half of their match against Arsenal.
