The match between Bournemouth vs Newcastle will be played on Wednesday, July 1, 2020, in the thirty-second stage of the Premier League. The match is scheduled at Vitality Stadium.
Bournemouth has a precarious situation in the rankings
Bournemouth failed to leave the relegation zone after resuming competition in the Premier League. He lost both games, with Crystal Palace (0-2) and Wolves (0-1). He was very lucky, if we take into account that the other teams in the area did not succeed more. There are only seven stages left and scheduling is not an advantage. He is going to meet top opponents, engaged in the battle for a place in the Champions League. Manchester United, Tottenham, Leicester and Manchester City are the next four opponents, in that order. The big problems come from the offensive, one that finds it very difficult to find the opponent’s goal. Callum Wilson, the hosts’ top scorer, with eight goals scored, is suspended. Defects management led to the loss, free of charge, of two other strikers, Ryan Fraser and Jordon Ibe, whose contracts ended on June 30.
- Bournemouth (4-5-1): Ramsdale – Stacey, Steve Cook, Ake, Smith – Harry Wilson, Lewis Cook, Lerma, Billing, Stanislas – Joshua King
Newcastle can be considered saved from relegation
Newcastle is in fourteenth place, but managed to collect thirty-nine points. He only needs one more to reach forty, the value considered enough to stay in the Premier League. Since 2004 there has been no relegation between the teams that reached this figure in one season. After the resumption, the series of positive results continued. He won with Sheffield United (3-0) and drew with Aston Villa (1-1). It should be mentioned that both parties played them on their own field. He reached four matches without defeat. Newcastle is not an offensive force either. He scored as many goals as his opponent, twenty-nine. The guest scorer is Jonjo Shelvey, with only five goals scored this season. On Sunday, Steve Bruce’s team played in the quarterfinals of the English Cup, where they lost to Manchester City (0-2).
- Newcastle (4-4-2): Dubravka – Manquillo, Lascelles, Fernandez, Rose – Almiron, Shelvey, Hayden, Saint-Maximin – Gayle, Joelinton
Bournemouth vs Newcastle Picks
For Bournemouth this is an all or nothing meeting. Let’s not forget that a series of very difficult meetings are coming. In order to hope to stay in the Premier League, he needs all three points at stake. Even if he didn’t do great, we must not forget that Manchester United, Everton, Arsenal or Chelsea did not win on Velocity this season. It is a time when he needs to raise his level, to overcome his condition again. The victory of the hosts is the bet I propose to you, but in order to avoid a tie we will choose a bet that returns our stake in case of a draw.
Our Prediction: 1x
