West Ham vs Bournemouth
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 1 January 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium (London).
West Ham vs Bournemouth: The home advantage has not had its charm lately for West Ham, which has had a run of five consecutive losses. With Bournemouth undefeated in their last six h2h meetings in total, it certainly seems that the hosts are on the line to leave the points even more this week.
West Ham was defeated once again, after Leicester did enough to post a 2-1 score card last week at home. The hosts failed to keep up in this final confrontation and only recorded half the target shots that their counterparts.
It should also be mentioned that the Hammers have now tested success only twice in their last ten games in PL, scoring no more than seven points out of thirty possible.
On the other hand, Bournemouth is not doing better in their respective matches. The visitors have not won in their last three matches, the most recent of which saw them lose 2-0 against Brighton.
Surprisingly, the guests have had more road wins than at home this season.
In addition, West Ham was considered the worst home team in the group when it comes to statistics. Miserably, the Hammers have not proven success since their 2-0 victory over Manchester United three months ago.
Given his obvious bad form at home, it is more than likely that victory leans in favor of Bournemouth in this. However, since the visiting contingent has also performed poorly in its recent confrontations, a double opportunity presents itself as the safest clearance to maintain.
In addition, there has been no shortage of goals in the Olympic stadium in recent times. The last four games here have scored more than 2.5 goals in the final scores. The home team was too easy to break in these clashes and conceded two or more goals in each.
Meanwhile, ten of Bournemouth’s twenty goals to date come from his road trips. Since your last h2h meeting here also saw a combined total of three goals on the charts, expect nothing more than a high-scoring clash on Wednesday as well.
