Our football match prediction:
Swansea City do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of Saturday’s football game against Bournemouth. The Swans are on a five-game losing run in the Premier League and, as a result, they dropped to the relegation zone in the standings. The Welsh outfit are desperate to get back on course, but seeing that they failed to score in back-to-back defeats to the likes of Brighton and Burnley, home win should not be considered. The Cherries, on the other hand, made a slow start to the season, but they have been in a fine form in the English top flight of late. Bournemouth did well to beat Newcastle United and Huddersfield Town in previous two league fixtures and we predict that they are going to spoil Swansea City’s party at Liberty Stadium. It has to be noted that the Cherries emerged triumphant in each of their last three meetings with the Swans in the Premier League.
Highlighted Player (Martin Olsson):
Martin Olsson is an experienced Swedish defender who has spent his entire professional career up to date in England. The left-sided defender came through the Hogaborgs BK academy, but he went on to join Blackburn Rovers before turning 18. Olsson quickly managed to nail down a regular starting berth at Ewood Park, and he made a total of 117 league appearances ahead of signing for Norwich City in the summer of 2013. The Swedish left-back couldn’t help the Canaries avoid relegation to the Championship, but he featured in 45 league games as they secured a straight return to the elite division. Olsson was at times linked with top European clubs, but a big club move never materialised for him, although there is still time for him to make the next step. Also capable of playing on the left wing, Olsson scored 5 goals in just over 30 outings for the Sweden national team, making three appearances at the Euro 2012 finals in Ukraine and Poland.
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.
