AFC Bournemouth and Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Bournemouth have won their last three matches against Leicester, doing the league double over the Foxes last season. However, the Cherries have kept just three clean-sheets across their last 11 home games, while Leicester have scored in 20 consecutive matches in league and cup.

AFC Bournemouth vs Leicester City Predictions

  • Bournemouth did the league double over Leicester last season
  • Both teams have scored in four of the Cherries last five games
  • Leicester have scored in 20 matches on the spin across league and cup

Cherries to edge entertaining contest

Bournemouth may be without a win in the Premier League since Boxing Day, but their performance levels have remained high, as evidenced by their strong showing during Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester City.

That was the first time the Cherries have failed to score in five matches, while it is also the only occasion across their last five games that both teams have failed to find the back of the net.

Leicester also score regularly, netting in each of their last 20 matches, but the Foxes will head into this game on the back of successive defeats in the Championship to Middlesbrough and Leeds.

That has tightened things up for Enzo Maresca’s side at the top of the second-tier standings and it may mean that Tuesday’s game has become less of a priority for them as a result.

Bournemouth are mid-table in the Premier League, meaning they can have a real go at this season’s FA Cup and they should have enough to edge what could prove an open contest.

Recent history on Bournemouth’s side

Tuesday’s hosts have won their last three meetings with Leicester, doing the double over the Foxes last season, with the most recent clash between the two sides at the Vitality Stadium ending in a 2-1 home win.

That scoreline can be repeated this midweek, especially when you consider two of Leicester’s last four matches have finished 2-1 – their away win at Watford and their home defeat to Middlesbrough.

Bournemouth have netted at least twice in five of their last nine home fixtures, while they have only registered three clean-sheets in their previous 11 at the Vitality, further underlining the possibility of this finishing 2-1.
