Tottenham Hotspur Analysis
The home team is currently in 3rd place with 14 points, after 4 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss. In the penultimate game, he won out against West Ham United for (2-3). In the latter, he won out against Huddersfield Town by (0-4). This is a team that curiously has been stronger outside than at home, because in the last 30 games it registers 12 wins and 3 losses as a visitor; against 11 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in his stadium. In the last 10 home games Tottenham Hotspur has 6 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses. His attack has scored regularly, as he has managed to achieve in 6 of the last 7 games for this competition. In the 15 games he played, he only managed 1 turnaround in the 4 games in which he suffered the first goal. In the last 20 home games for all competitions there has been a period that stands out: he suffered 7 of his 16 goals between the minutes (76′-90 ‘).
The Tottenham derby start for this motivated journey, having won yet another win for the championship, by beating Huddersfield 0-4. In this game the commander of the house must maintain his usual strategy, that is, benefit the possession of the ball and the successive attacks paused: Delle Alli is the great responsible for carrying the ball to the attack. On the other hand, killer Kane is Tottenham’s finest finisher with 6 goals scored. It seems that the coach does not have Lamela, Dembélé and Wanyama, all injured.
AFC Bournemouth review
The away team is currently in 19th place with 4 points, after 1 win, 1 draw and 5 losses. In the penultimate game, lost out against Everton by (2-1). In the last game, they drew at home against Leicester City by (0-0). This is a team that curiously has been stronger outside than at home, because in the last 30 games it registers 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses as a visitor; against 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses in his stadium. In the last 10 matches played for all competitions, AFC Bournemouth won 6, drew 1 and lost 3. The team conceded goals in 6 of the last 7 matches for this competition, so it has not been very strong defensively. In 9 games, he managed to come back to the result in 2 of the 5 games in which he suffered the first goal.
Bournemouth are going through a difficult time in this English league and in the last meeting they added a goalless draw against Leicester. In this out-of-doors game, it will be expected that coach Eddie Howe will keep the 4-2-3-1 privileging the defensive organization and the direct balls for Defoe: this player is very competent at the time of finishing. However, side Charlie Daniels is the highlight of the team so far with 1 goal and 1 assist. For this game the coach can not count on Mings, Federici and Fraser, all injured.
The most likely scenario for this match will be Tottenham’s triumph at halftime. In this game it is anticipated that the London club dominates much of the meeting and enjoys more opportunities to score goals, not only for playing at home, but due to the offensive quality it has in its squad. On the other hand, Bournemouth does not have enough weapons to win a positive result in this game. Having said this, we believe that betting on the victory of the housekeepers at the interval is of great value.
