Reason For AFC Bournemouth vs Brighton Betting Tips

On Saturday Bournemouth and Brighton go head to head in the FA Cup and were expecting a close game between two teams separated by a single point in the Premier League table. Neither side head into the game in good form, with both winning just one of their last six matches in all competitions. The visitors form does appear to be improving though as they remain unbeaten in their last three games against West Ham, Everton, and Arsenal.

Bournemouth were involved in a six-goal thriller on Wednesday night when they played host to Watford, with all of the goals arriving in an action packed first forty-five minutes. Two goals from Watford’s Troy Deeney saw the visitors take a two goal lead inside the half hour mark, but Bournemouth responded well and levelled the match through goals from Aké and Wilson. The hosts were only on level terms for a minute before Sema thrust Watford back in front, but a great reaction from the home side saw Fraser level the two teams five minutes before the break. Amazingly there were no further goals in the second half, perhaps due to some stern words for both defences from their managers, and Bournemouth will be the more disappointed of the two clubs not to have won the game after they created more chances.

After a goalless first half at the London Stadium, Brighton scored two goals in the space of two minutes to take the lead against West Ham. Stephens opened the scoring in the fifty-sixth minute and defender Duffy scored a second in the fifty-eighth minute to hand Brighton a commanding lead. However, West Ham responded well and scored two goals of their own, also in the space of two minutes, through Arnautović to rescue a point from a game they would have expected to win before kick-off. Brighton gave a good account of themselves and deserved something from the game on the balance of play and stretched their unbeaten run in the Premier League to three.

Bournemouth and Brighton met in December to contest three Premier League points at the Vitality Stadium, where the visitors ended the game with just ten-men on the pitch. Young Welsh midfielder Brooks put Bournemouth in front in the twenty-first minute, and that goal separated the two clubs at the half time interval. Brighton looked a threat going forward, especially from set pieces, but shot themselves in the foot when centre back Dunk picked up two yellow cards in the space of eleven minutes and had to leave the field of play. It took the hosts just four minutes to capitalise on their one man advantage as Brooks helped himself to his second goal of the game to wrap up a comfortable 2-0 win for Bournemouth.

With one win, two draws, and three defeats from their last six matches, Brighton head into Saturday’s FA Cup tie as the slight form favourites. Bournemouth also have one win from their last six matches, but only the single draw, and four defeats and could really do with a win to kick start their new year. Wilson top scores for the hosts with nine goals in the league alone this season, while veteran striker Murray continues to lead the way for Brighton with eight Premier League goals so far.

We’re confident that both teams will score and that over 2.5 goals will be produced in Saturday’s game, and have backed Bournemouth to claim a narrow 2-1 win. Bournemouth have won five of the last six meetings between the two clubs, with three of those last six encounters seeing both teams score and over 2.5 goals scored. Bournemouth’s last three games have produced over 2.5 goals, and the most recent two have also seen both teams score, while three of Brighton’s last six matches have seen both team score.
