In this match preview, we will provide you with the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two sides.
Bournemouth vs Manchester City Betting Tips
After two rounds of the new season, both Bournemouth and Manchester City have 4 points. Of course, this doesn’t mean that their form has been similar. The Sky Blues have been much more impressive, having thrashed West Ham 5:0 and playing 2:2 with Tottenham.
Bournemouth, on the other hand, played against two Premier League newcomers, namely Sheffield United and Aston Villa. In both of those games, Bournemouth were far from impressive. They failed to beat Sheffield, while in the match with Aston Villa, luck was on their side. Even though they had significantly fewer goal attempts, they did get all three points at the end.
It’s obvious that the visitors are favorites here and it’s not just because of a better form. It’s also because the player quality is on their side. Actually, Man City have arguably the strongest team in the league. Furthermore, they have a fantastic record against Bournemouth. The Sky Blues have won every single Premier League duel with Bournemouth in history! Actually, only one of their meetings saw Bournemouth not losing. It was back in 1999 when these two teams competed in League One.
And the final reason why Manchester City are huge favorites in this game is the fact that they’re super-motivated to win it. If you remember the last season, Man City won the title with only a single point more than second-placed Liverpool. That said, another close title race is expected. This is why they mustn’t allow dropping points against such teams as Bournemouth. Everything but a win on Sunday would be a big failure in Pep Guardiola’s books.

Bournemouth Form and Latest News
Even though they did win four points in the two rounds of the 2019-20 season of the English Prem, they were far from impressive in those games. In fact, both Sheffield and Aston Villa seemed like the teams that deserve to win more points than them. And one of the reasons why Bournemouth haven’t been playing too well is the fact that they have many injured players. In fact, seven of their men are definitely going to be absent from Sunday’s clash.
Manchester City Form and Latest News
Unlike Bournemouth, Man City don’t have major injury concerns. Mendi and Sane are out, but Pep has plenty of players ready to replace them. Actually, one of the strongest points of this team is an extremely long bench. This allows Pep to rotate the team, without reducing the team quality. That said, even if they had much more absentees, Man City would still be ginormous favorites against Bournemouth.
