Our prediction for this Championship match:
All eyes will be on Bramall Lane when Sheffield United and Bournemouth go head to head in the Championship derby. The Blades recorded a very important 1-0 win over QPR, with Oliver Norwood scoring the only goal of the match, but they need to keep on impressing in the season finale if they are to secure a top-six finish. Experienced attacker Billy Sharp remains in the recovery room, as well as Goode, Bogle, McGoldrick, Brewsterm, Basham, and O’Connell.
The Cherries, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to WBA. Since both sides will go for a win in Saturday’s derby, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Siriki Dembele is pushing for a start, while all Leif Davis, Kieffer Moore, Robert Brady, and Junior Stanislas are sidelined with injuries for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Ben Osborn):
Ben Osborn is an English footballer who plays for Nottingham Forest as a midfielder. Osborn was born in Derby (England) on August 5, 1994 and he started his youth career at his hometown club Derby County. In 2003 he moved to Nottingham Forest and after spending ten years at their football academy Osborn made his first-team debut for the Reds.
He made his debut on March 29, 2014 in a 1-1 draw with Ipswich Town and he has been playing for the City Ground Stadium outfit ever since. Ben Osborn has one cap for England U20 team and he played for England U19 and England U18 teams in the past as well.
It has to be noted that the Nottingham Forest midfielder scored four goals, while providing seven assists for his teammates in the 2016/2017 Championship season. His main position is left midfield, but he is capable of playing as both central and attacking midfielder as well. Ben Osborn’s preferred foot is left.
Highlighted Team (Bournemouth):
Bournemouth are a professional football club that was formed back in 1890. The Cherries secured promotion to the Premier League in the 2015/2016 season, with the team making it to the English top flight for the first time ever.
Bournemouth play their home games at Dean Court and the capacity of the stadium is 11,469.
The Cherries enjoyed a very successful season on their Premier League debut, with the team beating the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United in the national championship. Glenn Murray scored the winner for Bournemouth in the 1-0 win over the capital club at Stamford Bridge and that is probably the greatest victory in the club’s history.
Bournemouth have been participating in the FA Cup since 1913, but they have yet to win the trophy in the prestigious competition. It has to be noted that the club’s original name Boscombe Athletic Football Club was changed to Bournemouth back in 1923 as the club owners wanted the Cherries to be more representative of the district.
