- Both teams scored in each of Bournemouth’s three Championship away games this season
- Watford scored exactly once in two of their first three home league matches this term.
- Bournemouth notched exactly once in two of their first three Championship fixtures on the road this season.
Goals at both ends possible
Recently relegated pair Watford and Bournemouth have made solid starts to life in the Championship, and both clubs occupy positions in the division’s top four ahead of their clash at Vicarage Road.
The Hornets, who beat Blackburn Rovers 3-1 last time out, have now kept just one clean sheet in their last three assignments, leaving behind their more cementitious start, and we think there is every chance Watford will concede again when they line up against a Bournemouth side growing in confidence.
The Cherries were held to a 1-1 draw at Cardiff City in their last outing – a result that saw both teams score for the third Bournemouth away match on the spin since their demotion.
The evidence suggests chances should be on offer for both promotion hopefuls at Vicarage Road on Saturday, making the both teams to score market a favourable way to go at the odds quoted, while our correct score prediction points towards a 1-1 draw.
Watford, unbeaten at home, face a tough test against a Bournemouth outfit that have yet to taste defeat on the road. The Hornets scored exactly one goal in two of their first three Championship fixtures at Vicarage Road, while the Cherries notched exactly once in two of their last three on the travels. Combining the two makes a 1-1 tie a likely outcome.
