Bournemouth vs Chelsea Match Preview

Bournemouth vs Chelsea, 29 February 2020, Saturday

English Premier League, Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET

Venue: Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth).

Chelsea are one of the best teams in the competition, and they are in contention for a CL spot the next season. On the other hand, Bournemouth are a relegation-battler. In addition to this apparent disparity in quality, Chelsea will be supremely frustrated after their loss against Bayern in the Champions League, and will definitely go after a huge win this weekend.

Bournemouth vs Chelsea Head-to-head (h2h)

Seven of the last ten matches saw Chelsea recording wins.

Six of the past eleven wins had gone to the teams that were on the road.

At this venue, Chelsea have won every single meeting bar one, this past decade.

The Blues scored thrice or more in two of their former four visits to this stadium.

Bournemouth vs Chelsea Match Preview

Bournemouth were defeated 3-0 on the road the last match-day by Burnley. It was their 13th loss from the past 18 match-days, and more than justified their inclusion in the bottom tier of the table, and their fight to avoid relegation.

The team used to a good competitor the prior campaign, but this time around, they have been completely unable to cope up with the intense demands of the PL, and their faltering defense has played a large role in putting them in such a situation.

Meanwhile, Chelsea recorded a 2-1 win at home against Tottenham, in their latest league encounter. The win against one of the elites of English Football (that too coached by none other than the Special One – Jose Mourinho) was surely a confidence-booster for the Blues.

However, their subsequent game was in the CL, against Bayern Munich. At home, Chelsea were humiliated by the Bavarians, with a dominating 0-3 scoreline.

With three away goals already conceded, and an impending trip to the frightening Allianz Arena, it’s safe to say that Chelsea’s European campaign is as good as over. Now all that remains to achieve this season is a strong finish in the league.

Bournemouth vs Chelsea Prediction

Chelsea are one of the best teams in the competition, and were the last champions before Manchester City began their dream run. On top of that, they are in hunt for a spot in the next edition of Champions League, and recently they have seen their place at the fourth spot of the table come under attack from teams just below them.

As such, we can count on the Blues to go after a win. Moreover, after their loss against Bayern, confidence is shattered, and the team might need this victory desperately to set things back on track. And finally, with their run in the CL almost over, the squad will surely turn their attention towards a podium finish in the Premier League.

On the other hand, Bournemouth are one of the worst teams in the league, and are in danger of getting relegated. They have also lost 13 of their prior 18 overall fixtures, and have also lost seven of their past ten h2h clashes against Chelsea.

Considering these findings, it’s estimated that Chelsea will record a dominating win this weekend, at the Vitality Stadium.
