Birmingham City Preview – Can the Blues maintain unbeaten start?

Lee Bowyer’s Birmingham City started their 2021-22 season in the best possible way, winning away from home against Sheffield United, who were a Premier League club last term. Maxime Colin’s goal was enough for a 1-0 triumph at Bramall Lane.

Birmingham followed up the win in Sheffield with a narrow home victory over Colchester United in the first round of the EFL Cup, with Marcel Oakley scoring the only goal. City then drew 0-0 with Stoke City at St Andrew’s on matchday two of the Championship last weekend.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1649 GMT, Tuesday 17 August)

Bowyer will be pleased with the start, especially as his side have kept three league and cup clean sheets along the way. However, Wednesday’s clash against Bournemouth – who are one of the promotion favourites – will be their toughest challenge yet. The hosts are the 19/10 underdogs in this one.

Bournemouth Preview – Can the Cherries make it back-to-back away wins?

Scott Parker started life at Bournemouth with a thumping 5-0 victory over MK Dons in the Carabao Cup. David Brooks (2), Dominic Solanke, Philip Billing and Christian Saydee were the scorers in that one.

Bournemouth then opened up their Championship campaign with an enthralling 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion at the Vitality Stadium. After taking the lead twice, though, the Cherries should have picked up all three points. Nevertheless, they were winners on matchday two, with goals from Brooks – who was later sent off – and Solanke giving them a 2-1 victory against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.
