Bournemouth Preview – Can the Cherries claim a home win?

Jonathan Woodgate has done a fine job since taking over at the Vitality Stadium, guiding Bournemouth into the play-offs. The Cherries are set to face either Swansea City or Brentford in a two-legged play-off semi-final.

Bournemouth have racked up an impressive 77 points this season as they look for an instant return to the Premier League. They have suffered 12 defeats, with just Norwich City, Watford, Brentford and Swansea City losing fewer. Also, only Brentford have scored more.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0824 GMT, Friday 7 May)

Bournemouth are one of the best home sides in the division. The Cherries have won 13, drawn three and lost six on their own patch, scoring 40 and conceding 22. However, they were beaten by Brentford in their last home fixture.

After back-to-back defeats, Woodgate’s boys will be looking to get back to winning ways before their play-off campaign begins.

Stoke City Preview – Can the Potters pick up a rare away win?

Stoke City have progressed under Michael O’Neill this season, but the Potters were nowhere near consistent enough to sustain a promotion challenge. Stoke are currently in 14th position on 57 points, a whopping 20 points away from sixth-place Barnsley.

City have been in poor form of late, failing to win any of their past six. Since a 2-0 win over Bristol City at Ashton Gate on 2nd April, Stoke have lost four and drawn two of six. Last time out, O’Neill’s men were beaten at home by Queens Park Rangers.

Stoke have a pretty retched away record this season, winning just once on the road since early December. Having said that, eight of their previous 14 have ended in draws. Can they leave the coast this weekend with something to show for their efforts?


Bournemouth vs Stoke City Betting Advice

It was a tight and tense affair when the pair squared off at the bet365 Stadium back in January. The game looked to be heading for a 0-0 draw, but Junior Stanislas’ goal 11 minutes from time won the points for the Cherries.


Key Facts – Bournemouth vs Stoke City Betting Tip

  • Stoke have picked up just one away win since 2nd December

Since a play-off berth was confirmed, Bournemouth have suffered back-to-back defeats to Brentford and Wycombe Wanderers. They will want to avoid a third straight defeat before the play-offs begin.

Stoke’s season has ended with a whimper, and the Staffordshire club could suffer an eighth away league loss of their campaign this Saturday. We like the look of the home win and both teams to score at 11/4.

Junior Stanislas scored the only goal of the game when the pair met at the bet365 earlier in the year. The midfielder has had a fine goalscoring season, and Stanislas is available at 9/4 to score anytime here.
