Reason For Burton Albion vs AFC Bournemouth Predictions

Following successive wins against Everton and Southampton in the Premier League, Bournemouth come into their Carabao Cup Round Three clash with League One side Burton Albion in fine fettle.

After failing to fully fire in the opening throes of the season, the Cherries’ attack has found its groove of late, hitting the net six times in total in their victories over the Toffees and the Saints, utilising the considerable pace in their frontline to deadly effect.

Bournemouth’s ability to counter attack with speed has allowed them to become quite a prolific team on the road. In fact, the Cherries registered at least twice in six of their last eight Premier League matches away from the Vitality Stadium since the end of last season.

On Wednesday, Bournemouth’s rapid attacking options will be out to pierce holes in a Burton Albion defence that has shipped goals with regularity this season.

In total, Albion have kept only four clean sheets in twelve competitive matches this term, though their manager Nigel Clough saw all four of those blanks secured inside their last seven fixtures.

While their defensive displays in League One have been improving, there is little to suggests that Burton can keep Bournemouth out this week.

Albion made it all the way to the semi finals of the Carabao Cup last term, largely thanks to a relatively kind run of draws.

However, Burton conceded ten goals over two legs against eventual winners Man City last year, and Albion shipped 20 goals in total across their last five matches against Premier League opposition in the League Cup overall.

With Bournemouth’s attack starting to click and Burton prone to capitulation in games against teams from the top flight, we think the Cherries are priced superbly in the over 1.5 team goals market this week.

Bournemouth scored three or more goals in four of their last six competitive away games, and our correct score prediction is tipping them to hit three more on Wednesday. We’re going for a 3-1 Bournemouth win.
