Insights:
  • AFC Bournemouth have played more matches over 2,5 goals home than away.

We should expect both teams to be fresh and ready for this match, as there is some time since both teams last played. Let's have a look at how the teams are doing!

AFC Bournemouth form and stats

AFC Bournemouth have played 20 Championship games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 12-3-5 (wins-draws-losses). Hopes of three in a row are alive for Bournemouth after consecutive victories at their own ground.

Happy days for Bournemouth in their previous game, a Championship match away at Blackburn Rovers (placed 17th) that ended with a 2-0 victory. Previous to that game, a home match hosting Middlesbrough in a game that was won 3-1.

There's a new game coming up fairly quickly for Bournemouth as they are travelling to their away game against Huddersfield Town in the Championship. That match is three days after this one.

The Bournemouth fans have had their share of opportunities to cheer home goals this season, having seen 36 goals in 20 league matches. AFC Bournemouth have conceded 20 in these home matches.

Coventry City form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Coventry City, who have the fewest points (11) away in Championship, so far with only 11 points returning home. The records show 2-5-12 (win-draw-lose). Coventry City seem to be suffering from homesickness with two consecutive losses away. Third time lucky?

Coventry won their last game, 3-1 versus Bristol City played at home. Preceding that game, the 0-3 loss visiting Queens Park Rangers's place.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Coventry as they have only managed to score 13 times from 19 away games in the league. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. Coventry City's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 32 goals from these trips.

Head 2 Head

Bournemouth and Coventry City have met before this season: Coventry City - AFC Bournemouth 1-3. Numbers for the last three meetings between these two teams are: one win for AFC Bournemouth, zero draws and two wins for Coventry City. Over 2,5 goals: one time; under 2,5 goals: two games.
