Cardiff City vs Bournemouth Match Preview
Cardiff fared better than most people expected in difficult circumstances at Arsenal in midweek and could be capable of holding a high-in-confidence Bournemouth side.
The Welsh club have had a terrible couple of weeks since their new signing Emiliano Sala went missing, presumed fatally, on a private charter flight from France.
Manager Neil Warnock admitted the dreadful news had badly affected his squad, as well as himself, and therefore to lose only 2-1 away to Arsenal in their first subsequent match was a commendable effort.
Emotions will run high again with Cardiff being at home this time, and it’s at their own stadium in the Welsh capital where the Bluebirds have been most effective this term having collected 14 of their 19 points there.
Bournemouth, meanwhile, have recovered from a poor spell that lasted over two months with back-to-back home wins to nil, impressively putting four goals past Chelsea even without their star striker Callum Wilson who has undergone knee surgery.
Eddie Howe’s side are not as good on the road though, so Cardiff’s home advantage is fancied to serve as a leveller here and this is backed to be a first away draw of the campaign for the Cherries.
