AFC Bournemouth form and stats

AFC Bournemouth are steadily winning Championship games and points here at Vitality Stadium. 6 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat is the summary from 9 games.

Bournemouth travelled for their previous game, a trip to Millwall that ended 1-1. Chris Mepham was "man of the match" with a rating of 7.33 out of 10. The defender Mepham won 8 of 15 duels.

A defeat was the result before that one, 2-3 away at Derby County.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Bournemouth have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found seven games) they have won six times, drawn zero and lost one.

With an average of more than two goals per home game in the league (21 in 9 games), AFC Bournemouth's attacking play is working. Bournemouth have conceded 9 in these home matches.

Coventry City form and stats

There's been little loot from Coventry City's travels as they have only collected 9 points from 9 away games in the Championship. Coventry City only have 2 wins to counter their 4 defeats and 3 draws.

Coventry City are looking to quickly end their 180 minutes long goal drought in the Championship. 202 minutes! That's how long the Coventry goalkeeper Simon Moore and his defense have shut out their league opponents.

There were no winners in Coventry's previous match, a Championship home game that ended 0-0 vs Birmingham City (placed 17th). Simon Moore (goalkeeper) was the best performer with a rating of 7.4. Moore topped it up with a clean sheet.

Ahead of that match was the away draw versus Sheffield United that ended 0-0.

Coventry are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is one win, three draws and five defeats. From a total of nine matches.

The attacking power of Coventry City when travelling is not overwhelming with 6 goals scored from 9 league matches away. As opposed to that, Coventry have seen the ball go into their own net 13 times on the road.

Head 2 Head

Head-to-head totals (for the preceeding four meetings): AFC Bournemouth won two games, zero matches ended with a tie and Coventry City got two wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: two / two
