Bournemouth News and Form

Bournemouth took a point in a 3-3 draw against Southampton last weekend. That leaves the Cherries with one win in their last six top-flight games. That lone win was on the road at Brighton, a 5-0 scoreline that the Cherries produced. After having had a strong season on home soil, right up to about February, it has since taken a nosedive. Bournemouth have taken just one point from their last four home games in the league (D1). They have had some real struggles in defence.

Their overall home record is W7 D5 L6 and the Cherries have averaged 1.6 goals per home game. 61% of their home fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals, Bournemouth having picked up a clean sheet in 28% of their home fixtures. They have failed to earn a clean sheet in any of their last five at the Vitality though. They have had their difficulties this season, most notably with their away form actually, but they are four points better off than they were at this stage of last season’s campaign. Bournemouth have opened the scoring in ten of their home fixtures.

  • Spurs need a point to guarantee a top four finish
  • Spurs are on a five match losing streak away from home

Tottenham News and Form

Spurs are also struggling for some form. They have taken three victories only in their last ten league games. Those wins were all inside their last five league games, however, they were all on home soil at their new stadium. Away from home in the Premier League at the moment Spurs are on a five-match losing streak. Now they have extra pressure having lost the first leg of their Champions League semi-final on home soil in midweek. So they have to prepare for their trip to Amsterdam next week. That just makes focus on this game even more difficult for them. They have yet to mathematically lock in a top-four finish.

They aren’t far off that though. They are in third place ahead of the weekend and a point will guarantee at least fourth place for them. But if they suffer another away defeat, they could be caught by any two of Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd. So given all that they have going on at the moment, they could be forgiven for playing for a draw in this game. Tottenham have produced an average of 1.8 goals per away game. They have come up with only five in their last five on the road though, failing to score in two for the games in that sequence. Spurs have scored the opening goal in ten away games this season but have conceded 73% of their away goals in the second half of fixtures.

Bournemouth v Tottenham Predictions

Bournemouth to win: Spurs do only need a point out of this game, so we may not see them at their best, especially with the distraction of the Champions League semi-final still. So there has to be a good chance to back a Bournemouth – Draw Double chance result.
