Bournemouth hosts Reading in round 38 of the English Championship. The match will be played on Tuesday, March 15th at Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth)
Bournemouth was promoted to the top division of English football in 2015. Then Eddie Howe was able to create a combat-ready team, which managed to stay in the Premier League until 2020. After returning to the Championship, Demin and other owners sold out a lot of players, so it’s not surprising that the Cherries didn’t manage to return to the elite from the very outset (although they took sixth place and played in the playoffs). But Scott Parker has better prepared his charges, and they are seriously involved in the fight for direct promotion to the Premier League. Fulham has broken away significantly, but there is a struggle for 2nd place, and Bournemouth is one of the favorites. After the victory over Derby County, the Cherries managed to gain a foothold in second place. And they have several matches in hand.

Reading is close to the relegation zone. But a serious punishment was imposed on Derby County, and the Rams could be much higher in the standings. The legendary Paul Ince and much lesser-known Gilkes will try to save the Royals. The first game under their management ended with a victory over Birmingham, but then everything resumed its unnormal course. Reading lost to Blackpool (4-1) and Millwall (0-1). And on Saturday, the Royals suffered a painful defeat from Nottingham Forest, conceding four unanswered goals.
Bournemouth beat Reading in five of the last six head-to-head matches. A year ago, the Royals managed to win, but in October Bournemouth took revenge with a 2-0 away victory. The Cherries look much stronger at the moment, and they must prove it on the pitch. We recommend taking a closer look at the option with a bet on the victory of Bournemouth in the 1st half and the match.
