AFC Bournemouth v Stoke City Match Preview & Best Odds

 

AFC Bournemouth find themselves up against Championship opposition for the second time in this season’s League Cup and they will be confident of success against a Stoke City side which are struggling in the second tier right now.

Having opened the scoring in their match against Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday afternoon, AFC Bournemouth ultimately came off second best in a 3-1 defeat to their south-coast rivals and this extended their winless run across competitions to three games. In the Premier League, the Cherries are still in search of their first win of the season after three draws and three defeats, therefore they will be more than happy to put their league concerns to one side tonight and concentrate instead on their League Cup campaign.

Stoke City’s season has been nothing to write home about and by the time the whistle blew for full-time in the 3-1 defeat to Hull City last weekend, the empty seats very much outnumbered the gloomy looking home fans in attendance and not for the first time this season. The Potters have managed just a single win from their last six outings across competitions, this being a 6-1 demolition of Rotherham United in the second round of this competition. They have lost five of their eight Championship games thus far with two wins during this time and as things stand they sit a lowly 20th in the league table.

Stoke will need to contend with a pile up of injuries ahead of this clash and as such, this outing has all the makings of being a thoroughly miserable affair for the visitors. Bournemouth desperately need an injection of confidence right now and we envisage them getting this as they put the Potters to the sword at the Vitality Stadium tonight.

 

Back Bournemouth to win 3-0 at best odds of 11/1
