Bournemouth vs Leicester (Pick, Prediction, Preview)

Bournemouth vs Leicester

Premier League 16th round. On Tuesday at 19:45, Bournemouth receives the visit of Leicester after the defending champions defeated last round Manchester City 4-2. Bournemouth is in 12th place with 18 points (goal difference 21-25) and Leicester on 14, with 16 points (goal difference 21-26).

Bournemouth has not managed better success with Liverpool 4-3 and succumbed Burnley 2-3 on his land. Aggressive style and good rhythm imposed by the hosts brought too much pressure on defenders Eddie Howe, who received goals to avoid. Certainly morale is rather on the side of Leicester, who defeated Manchester City 4-2 in a match where the score became 3-0 in the 20th minute Jamie Vardy scored a “double” and may terrify and Bournemouth’s defenses. There are two teams who use long ball and we will see counterattacks. The trend seems to be towards a match with goals, because both are vulnerable defensively.

Bournemouth’s defenders can facilitate gaps

Only four direct Mecure have played so far between the two teams. Leicester won twice (1-0 and 2-1) and two matches ended in a draw, 0-0 and 1-1. After a period in which Leicester tried to keep tight matches in his last 5 games bet “over 2.5 goals” was the winner! Bournemouth has problems in defense and received at least 3 goals in each of the last three matches. Although they appear overcrowded, southerners have rigid central defenders. Allow 1-1 in duels with more prestigious and faster, they succumb.

Vardy and Slimani are in shape for Leicester

Bournemouth cold blood showed completion lately, even if it gets more goals. Leicester still does not have it right on Schmeichel injured, and this is a disadvantage. Leicester Mahrez not play as impressive, but Slimani bring freshness in attack. Altogether, “foxes” have first chance to win a match with many goals. Both scorers on the ground have many successful 5: Wilson hosts and Vardy from Leicester.

Prediction: Over 2,5 goals
Odds: 1,80
