Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
A place in the EFL Cup last 32 will be at stake when Swansea and Bournemouth go head to head at Swansea.com Stadium on Tuesday evening. The Swans made a slow start to the new Championship campaign and seeing that they have yet to record a triumph in the 2023/2024 season, home win should not be considered. The likes of Benda and Walsh remain in the recovery room, while Paterson and Abdulai are out of contention with injuries.
The Cherries, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Liverpool and Tottenham. Since Bournemouth faced a tough fixture list, we predict that they are going to advance to the next EFL Cup round. Keep in mind, though, that the likes of Fredericks, Marcondes, Adams, Scott, Smith, and Tavernier have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the away team.
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.
