Liverpool vs AFC Bournemouth Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Liverpool were only able to get a goalless draw with Everton in the recent visit to Goodison Park. The absence of some key players led to a mediocre offensive performance from Liverpool, who did pick up an impressive 2-1 win over Manchester City in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals. This helped the Reds reached the semifinals after a 5-1 aggregate victory. Bournemouth grabbed a late equaliser to make it a second consecutive 2-2 draw, but this time with Crystal Palace. Goals from Luka Milivojevic and Wilfried Zaha were cancelled out by Lys Mousset and Joshua King.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Liverpool had a mammoth fortnight, as the team managed a victory over Manchester City over two legs while also managing to stay unbeaten despite the Merseyside derby. Bournemouth make the trip to Anfield after having picked up only one win over Liverpool in the last six attempts. The solitary win came at the Vitality Stadium. Liverpool have been winning at half-time and full-time in 50% of the last six games at Anfield. Despite the hangover from the Champions League, I would back a repeat of the same in this game.

Mohamed Salah is still going strong even as he possesses a tremendous lead over the likes of Harry Kane in the Premier League Golden Boot charts. Salah is only one goal behind a 30-goal mark in the Premier League. He will push Liverpool into scoring more goals, while the away team has been able to score at more than 1.5 goals per match in the last six. I would back over 3.5 goals in this game.

Liverpool win at half-time and full-time – 8/11

Total goals over 3.5 – 1/1

Liverpool are undefeated in all of their last 10 games

Liverpool saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 9 games played against AFC Bournemouth

Liverpool Preview

The impressive form shown by Liverpool in the Premier League has the potential to dip over the next few weeks, as the Reds switch their attention to the semifinals of the Champions League. After having been out of the competition for a long time, Liverpool are reaching the latter stages of this premier European competition for the first time since 2007-08. Even though there is a possibility of finishing as the runner-up in the Premier League by overtaking Manchester United, it is highly likely that success in Europe will take precedence over the next few weeks. Mohamed Salah returns back to the Premier league after missing the game against Everton and he just needs one goal to hit the 30-goal mark this season.

Liverpool Team News

Jurgen Klopp will be without Joe Gomez (ankle), Joel Matip (thigh), Emre Can (back), and Adam Lallana (hamstring) due to injuries.

AFC Bournemouth Preview

The recent matches have seen Bournemouth struggle to achieve a consistent run and the club have allowed themselves to be overtaken by the likes of Newcastle in the race for the top 10 places. Manager Eddie Howe will want his team to finish as high as possible, but it will be an extremely difficult task to motivate the players after having achieved safety with relative ease. Bournemouth have picked up only one win in the last five, but the team has also lost only one game in this run.

AFC Bournemouth Team News

Jordan Ibe (illness), Adam Smith (ligament), Junior Stanislas (knee), and Rhoys Wiggins (knee) are the players unavailable for Bournemouth.
