AFC Bournemouth (DLLLL) and Leicester City (DWLLD) will meet on Sunday, July 12th for an English Premier League match. The match is scheduled for a 2:00 PM EST start time and it will be played at Vitality Stadium.
Bournemouth has a lot of work to do in order to avoid relegation in the Premier League; however, July 9th against Tottenham was a great start. No, Bournemouth was not able to pick up the upset victory over Hotspur, but they did hold a clean sheet against a tough offense. A 0-0 draw is exactly what Bournemouth would love to see in this match as well, as even though a win would be fantastic, let's be realistic. Bournemouth snapped its losing streak, which is always a plus as well. Bournemouth is now three points behind Watford for 17th place and safety. Bournemouth has four matches against the top 12 teams of the Premier League, so relegation is probable, but not definite.
Leicester City is not looking for a 0-0 draw at all, as this team is still fighting for a top-three finish in the Premier League table. In the club's last game, Leicester City was trailing to Arsenal 1-0 until Edward Nketiah was given a red card and sent off in the 75th minute. Leicester City had the 11-10 men advantage for the remainder of the match, and Jamie Vardy was able to find the equalizer in the 84th minute to make it 1-1. That would be the final score, as now Leicester City is only one point behind Chelsea for third place in the Premier League standings. Leicester City will be on the road in this match, but with no fans in the stands, it should not throw the team off its game.
The last time Bournemouth and Leicester City met was on August 31st of 2019, in which Leicester City was victorious at home by the final score of 3-1.
This is crunch-time for Bournemouth, but unfortunately for them, Leicester City is also hungry for three points. I like Leicester City to pick up the win on the road, and I will take LC against the spread.
