Bournemouth – Cardiff FREE PICKS
AFC Bournemouth and Cardiff City meet at Vitality Stadium, in a match for the 1st round of the Premier League. The history of direct confrontations played in this stadium is favorable to the home team, who in the last 3 matches won 2 and lost 1. Indeed, the last time these two teams played a game in this stadium, on 30-07- 2016, for the Friendlies, AFC Bournemouth won by (1-0). Particular attention is required for the home / away condition, since both teams present significantly different results at home and abroad.
This is the first match in this edition of the home team competition, which finished the previous edition in the 12th position. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses in away matches, with 19 goals scored and 31 conceded; against 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 21 goals scored and 27 suffered. In the last match that they disputed, for the Friendlies, they lost with Real Betis at home (0-2). In the last 10 home matches AFC Bournemouth has won 4, tied 3 and lost 3. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 9 of the last 10 matches, so there are defensive processes that need improvement.
The Bournemouth is a club that never managed to conquer the Premier League (English Championship), having as best campaign in the three seasons that participated throughout its history the ninth place won in the 2016/17 season. Last season, the team made a median campaign, winning 44 of the 114 points played in the English league, ending the national competition in twelfth place. In the last five games that Bournemouth played in their stadium, counting friendlies and games last season, four scored more than 1.5 goals. We believe that in this match the boss will repeat himself, as Bournemouth will start for the attack looking for a good debut in the competition, having the conditions to score their goals, for playing at home.
The visiting team makes its debut in this edition of the race, after having finished the last season in the 2nd position and achieved the promotion. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 42 goals scored and 13 conceded; against 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 21 goals scored and 13 suffered. In their last match, for the Friendlies, they beat Burton Albion away by (1-5). In the last 10 away matches Cardiff City has won 6, tied 1 and lost 3. Their attack has scored regularly, since they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches.
The Cardiff City is a club that never managed to conquer the Premier League (English Championship), having as best campaign in its history the second position in the distant season of 1923/24. In the last season, the team played the Championship (second division of the English Championship), making a positive campaign, winning 90 of the 138 points played in the competition, thus remaining with the second position. In the last five games that Cardiff City played as a visitor, all friendly, there were always more than 1.5 goals. We believe that in this match the boss will repeat himself, as Cardiff, motivated by the promotion last season, will look to make a good debut in the Premier League this season and will have conditions to score goals.
