Bournemouth vs Leicester

Leicester City were struggling coming into this game to buy a victory, and then did it royal style beating Manchester City by a score of 4-2 on the weekend, and now travel away to Bournemouth aiming to replicate that form. Leicester have invested well with a great attacking lineup including Slimani, Vardy, Mahrez, Musa among their ranks; and they all came to the party against Man City, showcasing the quality that the side has if they are able to put their mind to it. While Leicester have managed to find the back of the net in 7 straight games in the league, their struggles on the defensive end are clear for all to view especially with the sale of Kante and the injury to Kasper Schmeichel. Each of their last 7 games have seen over 2.5 goal margin being breached, and I think we can expect the same in their travels away.

Bournemouth have been a mixed bag throughout the campaign; losing alternatively across their last 5 games, but finding the back of the net in every single game. The shocker of the lot was their 2-1 loss to Sunderland at home, but since then Shocked Liverpool 4-3; and fought valiantly against Arsenal losing 3-1 and against Burnley 3-2. Bournemouth will now enjoy their home comforts in this game agains the Champions where they have only lost twice to Manchester United and Sunderland in front of their home fans. They have even been in better scoring form scoring 14 goals in 7 games played. Bournemouth will know that the Leicester team are below them and come from behind, but their recent performances will be a boost to them that they can find the goals, but hopefully do not concede more to prevent a loss.
Leicester have seen 12 out of their 15 games in the league and 6 out of their seven away from home having more than 2.5 goals per game; while 4 out of the last 5 Bournemouth games have seen over 2.5 goals.

Over 2.5 Goals
