Bournemouth host Derby County in the Championship on Saturday in a 3pm kick-off at the Vitality Stadium. Here’s all you need to know about Bournemouth v Derby live streaming today.
The hosts remain unbeaten in the league this season, with Tuesday’s 1-0 victory over Bristol City lifting them to second in the table after an excellent start under Jason Tindall.
Is Bournemouth v Derby on TV?
Derby recorded a second consecutive 1-1 draw against Cardiff City in midweek, meanwhile, but remain in 21st position.
As such, it’s little surprise to see the hosts odds-on favourites at 13/20 to win the match. The draw is 11/4, with a Derby win 19/4.
Tindall tends to rotate his side to help his players cope with the demanding Championship schedule, so Tuesday’s match-winner Arnaut Danjuma is likely to return to the starting XI alongside Philip Billing.
Midfielder Jefferson Lerma is expected to be out until after the international break with a tendon injury, but Wales international David Brooks should return to the squad following a spell on the sidelines.
Derby captain and England’s record goalscorer Wayne Rooney has served his self-isolation period after coming into contact with an individual who tested positive for coronavirus, so should return to the side in place of Kamil Jozwiack, who limped off against Cardiff and is a doubt for the trip to Dorset.
Rooney is 21/4 (Betway) to score anytime, with Joshua King 15/8 (bet365) to score for the hosts having returned to the side in recent weeks. Danjuma is 9/5, meanwhile, with Dominic Solanke 7/4 (both Betfair).
One bet which does stand out is Bournemouth to win to nil at 8/5 (bet365). They are a much more solid unit under Tindall, deploying a back five and conceding only six goals this season. Moreover, Derby have scored just four goals this season and have also lost without conceding four times already this season.
I’d expect a few cards, too, with Rob Jones showing both sides at least one card in 13 of his last 18 matches at this level. Derby have picked up 14 yellow cards to Bournemouth’s 11, which puts both comfortably above an average of one per game.
Diego Rico and Graham Shinnie have both been carded three times already this season, and are 13/5 and 6/4 respectively to be carded (Betfair). The double pays 9/1.
