Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Vitality Stadium will host Saturday’s Premier League game between Bournemouth and Newcastle United, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the remainder of the season. The Cherries are desperate to secure the elite division survival, while the Magpies aim to represent England in the Champions League next term. Bournemouth failed to spoil Brighton’s party at Amex Stadium on Matchday 23, and given their poor form in 2023, home win should not be considered.
Meanwhile, the visitors aim to return to winning ways after dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with West Ham United. Even though important midfielder Bruno Guimaraes remains on the sidelines through suspension, we are tempted to put our money on Newcastle, who are enjoying a very successful season. Sweden forward Alexander Isak has recovered from a head injury, but all Targett, Manquillo, and Krafth remain in the treatment room.
Highlighted Player (Allan Saint-Maximin):
Allan Saint Maximin is a talented winger who was born in Chatenay-Malabry, France on March 12, 1997. Saint-Maximin played for the likes of Verrieres-le-Buisson, US Ris-Orangis, AC Boulogne-Billancourt and Saint-Etienne during his youth career and he continued playing for les Verts at Senior level.
After making 12 appearances in the league for Saint-Etienne senior team, Saint-Maximin moved to Monaco in 2015. However, the French winger made no more than one appearance for les Rouges et Blancs before joining Hannover and Bastia on loan. In the summer of 2017 he signed a contract with Nice for an undisclosed transfer fee.
Allan Saint-Maximim represented France at youth level, but he has yet to make his senior debut for les Tricolores. His main position is right winger, but he is capable of playing as an attacking midfielder as well. He wears No. 7 jersey at Nice and his contract with les Aiglons should expire on June 30, 2020.
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.
