Bournemouth rejoins the Premier League 2022 career by welcoming Aston Villa this weekend for the opening game.
Bournemouth was relegated after finishing 18th in the 2019-20 season. They clinched a number two spot in the latest season of the Championship, and are back into the top flight after a two-year hiatus. Coach Scott Parker has been slow in making additions to the team during the ongoing transfer season, and has brought in just 3 new players, namely Ryan Fredericks, Marcus Tavernier, and Joe Rothwell.
Parker has admitted that Bournemouth will still be heavily reliant on its current crop of players, most of whom have little top-flight experience, to give them a good start. The recently promoted club has lost 3 of its 4 pre-season friendlies, and most football betting sites see them as the most likely candidate for relegation at the end of this season. Much of the club’s fortunes will be reliant on the performance of Dominic Solanke, who has scored 44 goals in the last 2 Championship seasons.
Amid the talks of a European finish, Aston Villa put up a rather inconsistent performance in the last season, finishing at a disappointing 14th place on the points table. Coach Dean Smith was sacked in the middle of the season, and Steven Gerrard was brought on as his replacement. Coaching his first full season as the Aston Villa, Gerrard has been quite active in the transfer market, signing Philippe Coutinho, Diego Carlos, and Boubacar Kamara. Ludwig Augustinsson, Robin Olsen, and Rory Wilson are other notable names who will play at Villa Park.
Villa has played just 3 pre-season friendlies and has been undefeated despite facing the likes of Manchester United. With relatively easy fixtures lined up in August, Villa fans will be hopeful of their team getting an early lead on the points table.
Match prediction and football betting tips for AFC Bournemouth vs Aston Villa F. C. Premier League 2022-23. The match is going to be played at the Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth, on 6th August 2022.
The new signings for Bournemouth are unlikely to join the squad this weekend, as Ryan Fredericks and Joe Rothwell are both injured. Parker will be hoping that his old warhorses, Philip Billing, Jefferson Lerma, Lewis Cook, and Lloyd Kelly provide him a winning start.
As for the visitors, there are no injuries, and Gerrard is expected to give match time to his new players in order to break them in.
While Bournemouth has performed well at the Championship level, they are unlikely to cause much trouble in the well-seasoned Villa camp.
