In the opening match of Round 4 of the Championship on Friday 2 October at St Andrews Stadium, the Coventry City newcomer will host Bournemouth – we have made a prediction for this meeting.
The Sky Blue played in Ligue 1 last season and got a chance to try their hand at a higher level. The team has not played in the Championship for eight years, however, the start was not so bad here. In the previous three rounds , Coventry have earned four points.
In the opening match, Mark Robins’ team lost to Bristol City (1: 2), after which they won Victoria in a confrontation with QPR (3: 2) and ended in a draw with Barnsley (0: 0).
It should be noted that the defeat in the starting round from Bristol is the only defeat for Coventry in 23 previous official matches.
Cherries played in the Premier League last season and set themselves the task of returning back at the end of the current championship. After three rounds , Bournemouth is fourth in the standings. The team has not yet lost, but lost points in the away meeting with Middlesbrough (1: 1). At home, the Cherries achieved the maximum result in the matches against Blackburn (3: 2) and Norwich (1: 0).
Bournemouth will focus on the Championship. A week ago, the team completed their participation in the English League Cup, losing away to Manchester City (1: 2).
Coventry are unbeaten at home in 15 straight matches, winning nine of them.
In three of their last five home games, Coventry have played with both teams to score.
Bournemouth have won only one of their previous 12 games away.
In 8 of Bournemouth’s last 9 away games, Bournemouth’s prediction was “both to score.”
Coventry has line-up problems. There are eight players in the infirmary at once. The losses will affect the team’s performance, but the team doesn’t look so hopeless in attack. “Bormut” played poorly in the Premier League away. As the first matches in the Championship showed, the Cherries’ defensive problems have not disappeared. We offer to bet on goals from both teams.
Our forecast – both will score for 1.85 in BC Winline
