England Premier League
Saturday 9th March 2019
Kick off at 3pm GMT
Venue: Kirklees Stadium
For Huddersfield their remaining games will be about playing for pride as they come into this game rock bottom of the Premier League. In theory they still have a chance for survival as they are 13 points from safety and there are 27 points left on the board, but it will be their away games where they will keep losing points.
The last time they played at home they were able to stun Wolves with a last minute goal in a 1-0 win and they will be hoping to repeat that trick here. Last weekend they lost to Brighton 1-0 and overall at home they have won just two times all season.
Bournemouth have no such worries as their hosts and come into this match in 12th place and 20 points ahead of them. But Eddie Howe’s side have a very poor recent record with no wins in their last five games and just 8 points won in their last 30.
Whilst the club have had some tough fixtures they have lost 5 in a row away from home and are shipping just over 2 goals a game on average, they have lost 11 of their 14 matches on the road.
Huddersfield: Laurent Depoitre has a foot injury but is 50/50 to play in this game. Jonathan Hogg has a rib injury. Tommy Smith is serving his suspension after his sending off but will be back in the next game
Bournemouth: Dominic Solanke is pencilled in to return for this game after his thigh injury but will be assessed before doing so. Callum Wilson is training hard after a lack of match fitness but could feature in this game
Huddersfield vs Bournemouth Head to Head:
Earlier this season Bournemouth won the reverse fixture 2-1.
Huddersfield won this fixture 4-1 last season.
6 of the last 7 meetings have seen over 2.5 goals.
Huddersfield vs Bournemouth Prediction:
The fans are resigned to relegation but this actually takes the pressure from Huddersfield, whilst Bournemouth are looking like they will be safe. This is why we could see a really open game of football and our main bet will be to see goals. We will also back the 2nd half to have the most goals and this game could well be played in a jovial atmosphere where both teams will have been told to go out and enjoy their football.
Huddersfield vs Bournemouth Betting Tips:
Over 2.5 goals at 2.10
Highest Scoring Half: 2nd half at 2.10
