Bournemouth vs Manchester City Prediction & Match Preview

Sunday, August 25 – 09:00 EST – Vitality Stadium

Bournemouth have enjoyed a positive start to the 2019/20 season after drawing Sheffield United in the opening matchday and defeating Aston Villa last week. They will look to extend their form when they face reigning champions Manchester City. On that note, the Citizens have won 9 out of the last 10 meetings between the two teams. They will look to extend their streak on Sunday. All in all, Bournemouth need an outstanding performance to get anything out of this match. They will be facing much tougher opposition than what they had to deal with in the first two matches.

Speaking of Manchester City, the champions will not be happy with the way their last match ended against Tottenham. They were denied a last minute goal after a VAR decision which showed that a Manchester City player had touched the ball with his arm. Without a doubt, the Citizens were frustrated with the decision, and will look to take it out on Bournemouth on Sunday. They have firing in goals so far this season, having scored a total of 7 in 2 matches. Raheem Sterling has been phenomenal, as he’s picked up 4 goals so far. Overall, Manchester City know that they have what it takes to win matches, and it shouldn’t be any different against Bournemouth. We are expecting a lot of goals and a comfortable win for City.
