Bournemouth vs Leicester City Prediction and Betting Preview, 12 Jul 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 4-1
That Leicester City’s fairytale run to Premier League success in 2016 is one that will love long in the memories of the club supporters. Having narrowly escaped from the jaws of relegation the previous season, who would have imagined that same Leicester squad lifting the league trophy a year later.
Match status: 2019-20 Premier League - Matchweek 35
Venue: Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth)
However, that was exactly how things played out. The Foxes, under the tutelage of former manager Claudio Ranieri, proved to the whole world that determination can actually move mountains in the beautiful game of football.

Despite sporting a couple of average players within their ranks, they gave the Premier League elites a run for their money, clinching the league title to etch their name in the history books. Time has passed, and Leicester City are still very much a force to reckon with in English football.

Having remained hot on the tails on eventual league winners Liverpool, they occupied second spot for large parts of the season. However, an unlikely blip in form following Project Restart has seen the Foxes plummet down the standings to fourth.

Holding a measly one-point safety buffer in the top-four mix, anything other than a win in this fixture could see them relinquish their Champions League spot. Surely, they cannot let things play out in this manner.

Bournemouth vs Leicester City Team News

One of the youngest managers in the Premier League, Eddie Howe is already considered a legend at Bournemouth at the age of 42. Having spent most of his playing days at the club, he took over the reins at Dean Court after hanging up his boots.

Leading the club from League One to English top-flight football, you can count the number of managers that have achieved similar feat on one hand. The juvenile head coach is a real fan favorite and has lots of love for Bournemouth – his boyhood club.

Unfortunately, Howe and his team have been caught up in an unexpected relegation battle this term, dancing around the drop-zone like a sombrero. They have been horrific this season, with just 28 points from 34 games and are three points away from safety.

With the Cherries looking to exit the relegation zone soon enough, they have not been presented with the easiest of fixtures. Tasked with the mammoth challenge of toppling top-four hopefuls Leicester City this weekend, Howe’s charges will have to be at their best to stand any chances against this foe.

They should take confidence from their impressive goalless draw against Tottenham on the last matchday, a game where the Cherries remained resolute, showing grit and resilience. If they manage to replicate those impressive displays here, Leicester City could be in for a tough time.

Having managed to hold Arsenal to a one-all draw, the Foxes must be buzzing heading into the game. This side is walking on thin ice at the moment and any slump could see them fall off the top-four radar.

The hosts are winless in each of their previous nine league games, drawing two in that time. They had been on a five-game losing run before their impressive draw against Tottenham few days ago.

Bournemouth vs Leicester Predictions

Relegation-threatened sides like Bournemouth are often sparked into life at this stage of the season. We saw a spirited performance from the Cherries in their last game, showing they are more than prepared to give a real go at top-flight survival.

While Leicester City are favorites on paper, we cannot trust them with the win here. I will suggest we entertain the goal market. Since the visitors will be throwing caution to the wind in search of a win, Bournemouth will fancy their chances of breaking on the counter. As such, expect a high-scoring affair here with three or more goals on the scoresheet.
