Bournemouth vs Leicester: Match Preview and Prediction

Bournemouth vs Leicester: Leicester enters Vitality Stadium fresh off consecutive losses in the Championship. The last three meetings between Bournemouth and the Foxes have ended in victories for Bournemouth. Dominic Solanke has made 25 appearances in the Premier League this season, scoring 14 goals.

At Vitality Stadium on Tuesday night, Bournemouth takes on Leicester in the FA Cup’s fifth round. Both teams will be trying to recover from their most recent losses. The Cherries’ 0-1 loss to Manchester City at home on Saturday made it seven straight Premier League games without a victory.

Andoni Iraola did get some benefits from the defeat against the champions, though. In the last three days, Bournemouth created plenty of opportunities, but the players were unable to take full advantage of them. Seven points above the relegation zone, in 14th place in the Premier League rankings, is Bournemouth.

Despite losing the league to Middlesbrough and Leeds back-to-back, Leicester is still the undisputed leaders of the Championship. The Foxes led Friday’s meeting at Elland Road for the majority of the game, but they lost because of three goals in the last minute.

Bournemouth vs Leicester: Betting Analysis

Three straight wins over Leicester will help Bournemouth. The Cherries have won four, drawn two, and lost one in seven home matches against Leicester. In five of their previous seven matches, both teams scored.

Andoni Iraola and Enzo Maresca like offensive football, so Tuesday’s match at Vitality Stadium could be high-scoring. In four of Bournemouth’s last five league encounters, both teams scored. The only exception was the 0-1 home loss to Manchester City. The Cherries squandered numerous big chances.

Bournemouth has won the last three meetings with Leicester. We must consider them favorites to advance to the quarterfinals in front of the home fans because they play at a better level. Home victory & both teams scoring is the best bet at 3.25 odds.

This season, Bournemouth relies on Dominic Solanke. This season, the English attacker has scored 14 Premier League goals in 25 games. He now faces the lower-division competitor at home. Leicester lost two Championship games to Middlesbrough and Leeds, allowing five goals. The 2.20 chances for Big Dom to score anytime on Tuesday are good.
