Bournemouth come into this Carabao Cup tie off the back of a 5-match unbeaten run after demolishing Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage at the weekend. Bournemouth scraped through the last round of this competition after a 94th minute winner from top goal scorer Callum Wilson against Blackburn Rovers.

Norwich will prove to be no pushovers as they have only lost 1 of their last 12 games in all competitions. This run from Daniel Farke’s men comes after they lost 3 of their opening 6 games but it seems like they have tightened up their defence as they have only conceded 9 goals in their last 12 games compared to the 12 goals they conceded in their opening 6 games.

Both sides will be looking to keep up their good runs of form and will be hoping to enjoy a good cup run this season to go along their solid performances within their respective leagues.

Team News

Bournemouth have no injury concerns and should have a full team to choose from.

Norwich will be without Carlton Morris, Grant Hanley, Kenny McLean, Teemu Pukki and Louis Thompson with Matt Jarvis and Aston Oxborough being doubts.

Potential Bournemouth Starting XI: Boruc, Smith, Francis, Simpson, Mings, Stanislas, Cook, Lerma, Ibe, Wilson, Defoe

Potential Norwich Starting XI: McGovern, Passlack, Zimmermann, Godfrey, Pinto, Trybull, Leitner, Buendia, Srbeny, Vrancic, Rhodes.

The Verdict

Both sides have been in great form of late but I think the home advantage for Bournemouth will tip this in the balance of the hosts. I’m going for a narrow Bournemouth win with Under 2.5 goals in the game also.

With Norwich having tightened up at the back and Bournemouth having averaged 2 goals per games in their last 6 fixtures, I think 2-0 to Bournemouth is a very likely outcome.

Recommended Bets

  • Bournemouth to win and Under 2.5 goals in the game 7/2 (SportingBet)
