Tip Bournemouth - Blackburn
Prediction published on December 9, 2021 at 4:00 AM - Modified on December 9, 2021 at 5:00 AM
Bournemouth will be hoping to end a run of four matches without a win when they play host to Blackburn Rovers at the Vitality Stadium. The hosts are in second position on 43 points from their 21 matches while the visitors are in fourth position with 36 points. Bournemouth need to get back to winning ways after drawing three consecutive games, if they had converted those stalemates into victories they would be six points clear at the top. They do have a great home record losing just once in their last eleven home matches. The hosts will be looking for an early goal as they have only lost once in 40 Championship matches after scoring first. Bournemouth are six points ahead of third placed West Brom and a win could potentially open a nine point gap over the chasing pack and this will solidify their position in the top two.
Blackburn have hit a purple patch in their last five matches winning four and drawing one. No team has picked up more points than them during this period. They are in fourth position and a win will get them to within four points of Bournemouth. Blackburn’s red hot form is typified by the fact that they have kept three clean sheets in their last 3 matches, the same number they have managed inn their previous 27 matches. They have lost three of their last ten away matches in the league. Those three defeats came in successive matches from September through to October. They are now four games unbeaten on the road since that horror run.

Conclusion Bournemouth - Blackburn
