Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Aston Villa will be looking to climb to top ten in the Premier League standings when they take on Bournemouth on Matchday 28. The Villans have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both Everton and Crystal Palace, while sharing the spoils with West Ham, and they are seen as hot favourites to beat the Cherries in front of home fans. A man to watch in the home team will be Olie Watkins, who found the net in the last league match, while both Kamara and Coutinho remain in the recovery room. Leander Dendoncker is a major doubt.
Meanwhile, the Cherries did well to shock Liverpool thanks to Philip Billing’s goal, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. Bournemouth, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Aston Villa’s party at Villa Park. Both Stanislas and Tavernier are major doubts, while Hamid Traore remains in the recovery room.
Highlighted Player (Emiliano Buendia):
Born on the 25th of December, 1996, Emiliano Buendia or "Emi" is an Argentine footballer who plays for Norwich City in the Premier League. Born in Mar del Plata, the pacey winger's youth career was initially spent playing for local club Cadetes de San Martin.
In 2009, he left Argentina to join Real Madrid and then Getafe in 2010 with whom he signed his first professional contract four years later. Buendia spent his primary season at Getafe playing for the reserves and made his professional debut the following season in a 1-0 away loss to Almeria on the 1st of February, 2015. After spending over three years at the club, Buendia left Getafe in 2017 on a year-long loan to join Cultural Leonesa.
At the end of the loan period, Buendia returned to Getafe, who, in turn, sold him to English club Norwich City. The 22-year-old so far has made 50 appearances for the Canaries, scoring 8 goals and providing 21 assists in the process. Buendia, who has both Spanish and Argentinian citizenship, has represented both countries at the under-19 level.
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.
