Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Buoyed by a routine 2-0 win over West Ham, Wolverhampton will be aiming to keep their Champions League hopes alive when they face Bournemouth on Matchday 31. The Wolves continue where they left before the coronavirus layoff, and they are likely to go for a win in the midweek fixture as well. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Mexico international Raul Jimenez, who scored his 14th goal of the season at the weekend.
The Cherries failed to impress in their first match after the break, with the team losing to Crystal Palace (0-2) at home ground. Bournemouth are on a five-game winless run in the English top flight, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Wolverhampton’s party at Molineux Stadium. Norway international Joshua King picked up a knock against Palace, but he should recover in time to face the Wolves.
Highlighted Player (Adama Traore):
After starting his youth career at Hospitalet, Adama Traore moved to Barcelona football academy La Masia in 2004. The pacey winger made a great progress during his spell with the Catalan giants and it has to be noted that he scored eight goals in 63 appearances for Barca B.
Adama Traore made his debut for the first team against Granada (4-0) on November 23, 2013, replacing Brazilian superstar Neymar in the 83rd minute of the match. In the summer of 2015, he signed for Aston Villa for a fee of £7 million, but he made no more than 11 appearances in the Premier League for the Vilans. At the end of the 2015/2016 season he moved to fellow English club Middlesbrough and he made his debut for the Boro in a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on September 10, 2016.
Due to his dual citizenship, Adama Traore is eligible to represent Spain and Mali at senior level, but it has to be noted that he played for youth categories of La Roja.
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.
