Match: Bournemouth vs Luton
League: English FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 04 January 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth).
Bournemouth vs Luton: Bournemouth will try to keep his bad PL form aside in the game against Luton to advance to the next round of the FA Cup.
With his attackers still unable to find his scoring legs, Bournemouth has struggled to keep two wins in his pockets in the last ten games. They will host the game after a 2-0 loss on the road to Brighton in the Premier League clash.
On top of that, given their home run, they are in a better position when they act as hosts. In addition, Cherries have lost only four of their last ten home games in major competitions. Although the host has not won in the last four games at home, most of them have been against larger teams.
Despite this, they managed to draw 1-1 with Arsenal in their previous home game. This will increase the morale of the players when they are about to face a lower league championship team. Along with that, Luton is a favorite to descend to the championship.
Other than that, Luton has not won in his last five calendar games with four losses. In addition, they have lost all but one game in their last ten games away from home. Their only victory was against Blackburn and they have lost all eight games so far after this victory.
As a result, Luton could not remain calm against the championship teams. Therefore, they will have less luck against a PL team despite Bournemouth’s bad form. As such, we can expect the host to be more likely to win the game in ninety minutes.
