AFC Bournemouth vs Huddersfield Town Live English Premier League match on Tuesday, 4 December 2018 | Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET | Venue: Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth)
Huddersfield Town escaped from the bottom of the Premier League positions in one way or another, scoring even nine points in the last three rounds. The lead started with a 1-0 win over Fulham and continued with a 1-1 draw against West Ham United and a stunning 0-2 win against the Wolves at Molineux last weekend.
Can the Terriers keep this form on Tuesday when they travel to Dorset to face AFC Bournemouth in the 15th game at Vitality? The visitors will enter as favorites because the Cherries have lost three in the trot in the championship. Eddie Howe’s men have ruined a promising start to the new season. Interestingly, each of these defeats came with the same score 1-2. The race cannot be considered a major disaster since the opposition included players like Manchester United and Arsenal in the last two games of the local league.

AFC Bournemouth vs Huddersfield Town: Predictions
- The firm defensive line could be the key to Terriers here. The men of David Wagner have only conceded one goal in the last three games. In general, they did well without being prolific in the last third of the season. That is why we expect visitors to park the bus and wait for their chances against counterattacks.
- The value is excellent since Huddersfield Town left the Vitality Stadium undefeated with a score of 2.25. This scenario is by no means impossible if we look at the form of the team and its face-to-face registration.
- It impressed with the way Bournemouth played against Manchester City on Saturday. They lost, but they caused many problems to the leaders of the league.
- The cherries have now lost four games in a row, although this bad round should end here.
AFC Bournemouth vs Huddersfield Town: betting predictions
- Huddersfield or Draw @ 2.25 (5/4)
- Halftime draw at 2.20 (6/5)
