Chelsea vs Bournemouth Betting Tips
Bournemouth are coming to the Stamford Bridge after a disastrous run of five straight Premier League defeats that got them near the relegation zone. The bad news for this team is that they’re playing against in-form Chelsea, who have booked a ticket to the knockout phase of the Champions League earlier this week, when they beat Lille 2:1 at home.
That win came at the right moment for them as they needed a confidence boost after losing 3:1 to Everton in an away games last weekend. That was their third win in less than a month, which got many of their fans worried. But, it seems that the Blues definitely belong among the best teams on the continent.
That said, they definitely belong among the top six in the Premier League. At the moment, they’re fourth in the standings, which is where they want to stay until the end of the season. To achieve that, they will have to win matches like these.
Although Bournemouth have been in a poor form, this team is definitely very tough at the back. Scoring against them can be very difficult if they decide to defend with all they got. And they are likely to do so. Still, this doesn’t mean Bournemouth can’t strike back. As they showed the last season, they can score a lot of goals when they’re in the right mood. For example, the last time they played Chelsea, they scored four goals, without allowing a single one.
That match gives them some confidence ahead of Saturday’s game, but, at the same time, it also gives an additional reason for Chelsea to go for a win. Losing 4:0 to Bournemouth was a major upset and they surely want to get things straight. And it seems they’re gonna get their revenge!
