Bitesize Prediction: Luton vs Bournemouth – 06/04/24

Competition: Premier League

Market: Bournemouth win

Odds: 11/10 @ 1xBet

In what is certainly a must-win showdown for Luton this weekend, the Hatters will welcome Bournemouth to Kenilworth Road on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, although Luton might have gained plenty of plaudits since making a famous Premier League return this season, the Hatters find themselves tipped as a standout relegation contender. Last seen earlier in the week getting hit with a routine 2-0 loss at the hands of Arsenal, Rob Edwards’ men still find themselves sat three points adrift of top-flight safety. Marking their return from March’s international break with a second-half collapse away at Tottenham as they suffered a 2-1 loss, the former Watford boss has seen his squad fail to win any of their previous 11 straight appearances across all competitions. Crashing out of the FA Cup following a 6-2 drumming at home against Manchester City, Luton have continued to show some glaring defensive issues. Including a 4-3 loss when they travelled to the Vitality for their reverse Premier League meeting against Bournemouth on Match 13th, Edwards’ side have shipped 64 top-flight goals so far this season.

As for the visitors, while Bournemouth might have endured a real Premier League struggle when opening up the 2023/24 campaign, the Cherries have come roaring back in some style. Continuing to receive a string of plaudits and skyrocketing their away from a looming relegation scrap, the mood in Andoni Iraola’s camp should be at a red-hot high. Last seen earlier in the week putting in another eye-catching performance as they secured a 1-0 victory at home against Crystal Palace, the former Rayo Vallecano boss will be looking to make another statement here. With their sights firmly set on clinching a top-half finish this season, Bournemouth have won all of their previous three Premier League showdowns by an aggregate score of 7-4. Mounting a remarkable comeback when they welcomed Luton to the Vitality for their reverse Premier League contest last month as they eventually snatched a pulsating 4-3 win, the Cherries have also collected 13 points from their previous five top-flight appearances.
