Bournemouth – West Bromwich
Bournemouth welcomes West Bromwich at the Vitality Stadium on Friday in the Championship. Bournemouth come into this game on the back of a 5-0 win over Milton Keynes Dons on Saturday in the first round of the EFL Cup. West Bromwich Albion, on the other hand, beat Birmingham City 4-0 a few days ago in a friendly game.
In nine head-to-head encounters between the two sides, the record is exactly even. West Bromwich Albion have won four games, lost four and drawn one. The two clubs last faced each other in 2018 in the Premier League, with Bournemouth beating West Bromwich Albion 2-1.
Bournemouth reached the play-offs last season, where they were knocked out by Brentford. They have a new manager at the helm in the form of Scott Parker, who did a commendable job at Fulham. West Bromwich Albion, like Bournemouth, have a new boss. Valerien Ismael has taken charge of the club after an excellent season with Barnsley.
A close match is on the cards, and a draw seems to be an ideal result.
This match will be played on 06/08/2021 at 21:45.
