Our football match prediction:
Southampton and Bournemouth, the two teams who are level on points ahead of Matchday 30, face each other at St. Mary’s Stadium on Saturday evening. The Saints aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur and a win over Eddie Howe’s troops would see them retain their spot in top ten. Dusan Tadic impressed with Serbia in a 3-1 win over Georgia and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Following a 3-2 win over West Ham United, Bournemouth defeated Swansea City in their last league fixture, but Southampton are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the Cherries than their previous rivals. Bournemouth’s performances on the road leave a lot to be desired and we predict that they are going to return home empty-handed. In Callum Wilson’s absence, Benik Afobe is likely to lead the attack for the visitors in Saturday's football match against Claude Puel’s team.
Highlighted Player (Martin Caceres):
Martin Caceres is a widely travelled and well known Uruguayan professional footballer who plays for Juventus. Primarily a central defender, Caceres is known for his tenacity, pace, strength, tackling and aerial ability. He is versatile and can operate as full-back on either sides too. Caceres started his career at Defensor Sporting and became a regular at a very young age. In 2007, he went to Spanish side Villarreal but never officially appeared for them. He then was snapped up by Barcelona in 2008 for a reported transfer fee of € 16.5 million. But his only season at the Camp Nou was marred with injuries and moved to Juventus in 2012 via a short stop at Sevilla. Caceres made his full senior team debut in 2007 and was a successful member of the team that won the 2011 Copa America. He also played at the 2014 World Cup and has 68 national caps to his credit.
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.
