Bournemouth vs Fulham LIVE !!2 min read
On Saturday (April 1), Bournemouth, currently in nineteenth place, will face off against Fulham, who are in ninth place, at the Vitality Stadium as the Premier League resumes following the international break. Bournemouth has lost three of their last four league games, including a 3-0 defeat at Aston Villa in their most recent match after beating Liverpool 1-0 at home earlier in March. Meanwhile, Fulham’s seven-game unbeaten run came to an end with three consecutive losses, dropping them to ninth place, just three points behind sixth-placed Liverpool.
A win for Bournemouth would take them out of the relegation zone, while Fulham would fall out of the top ten if they don’t secure all three points. The two teams have met 36 times since their first meeting in 1928, with Bournemouth leading 13-11. They have only played three times in the Premier League, with both teams winning once, and their last three meetings ended in draws. Bournemouth’s last home win against Fulham was in the Championship in 2014, while Fulham has only won once against Bournemouth this century.
Bournemouth has conceded the most goals in the Premier League this season, with 54 goals in 27 games, while Fulham has conceded 37 goals. Bournemouth has only won one of their last five home games, scoring four goals, while Fulham has kept four clean sheets in their last six away games in the Premier League. Fulham has only scored more than one goal in one of their last 11 meetings against Bournemouth.
Bournemouth has struggled with consistency this season, and their poor form is expected to continue as they have lost the most games (8), scored the fewest goals (7), and won the fewest points (8) since the resumption of the Premier League after the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. They are also winless in their last three meetings against Fulham and are on a two-game losing streak. As their previous meeting ended in a draw, another stalemate could occur as there is little to separate the two teams at the moment.
