Bournemouth vs Wolves Match Preview
Wolves will fancy their chances of playing European football next season, but their prospects could suffer a dent when they visit a Bournemouth side with a strong home record.
The big-spending Midlands club are mirroring another team that play in yellow and black and begin with W, Watford, in their ambitions for the rest of this campaign.
One of the duo looks likely to qualify for the Europa League either by winning the FA Cup – and the quarter-final draw kindly gave each of them a home tie – or by finishing seventh in the Premier League if one of the Manchester clubs triumphs at Wembley instead.
Wolves would be demoted to eighth place if Watford win at Cardiff on Friday night, but have the chance to become ‘best of the rest’ again by claiming three points against Bournemouth.
However, the Cherries, who are only six points behind Wolves anyway, are a formidable proposition on their own pitch, albeit less so on their travels since November.
Eddie Howe’s side have won 2-0 and 4-0 respectively against West Ham and Chelsea in their last two home matches and no team outside the ‘big six’ has won at the Vitality in the league this season.
Meanwhile, Wolves have struggled past two lower-division opponents in the FA Cup and had to score a last-gasp equaliser at home to Newcastle in their latest three games, and as second favourites here Bournemouth look the better value.
