<div><div><div><div id=":on"><div id=":om"><div dir="ltr"><h2>Bournemouth vs Norwich</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Saturday, October 19, at Vitality Stadium</strong></a></p><p>The international break came at the perfect time for both of these teams and it will be interesting to see how they fare after taking time to regroup. Norwich were on cloud nine after beating Man City 3-2 at Carrow Road, but they then lost three in a row to cascade down to 19<sup>th</sup> in the table. Bournemouth now find themselves nestled in mid-table after drawing 2-2 with West Ham and losing 1-0 away at Arsenal. It was the first Bournemouth game of the season in which “both teams to score” did not pay off. Now they will bid to return to winning ways against a Norwich team that look low on confidence.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Bournemouth winger Junior Stanislas will be out for the rest of 2019 after a knee operation. Simon Francis is now back from injury, but Dan Gosling, Charlie Daniels and David Brooks remain out. Ryan Fraser has not signed a new contract at the club, and that could be why Eddie Howe has benched him. Joshua King and Harry Wilson have been his first choice wingers this season, with Dominic Solanke supporting Callum Wilson in attack.</p><p>Norwich have one of the longest injury lists in English football right now. Timm Klose has a knee injury that will keep him sidelined for the rest of the season. Christoph Zimmerman will not play until January due to an ankle injury. Alex Tettey, Onel Hernandez, Tom Trybull, Tim Kruhl, Ralf Fahrmann, Marco Vrancic, Alexander Tettey and are all on the treatment table too, keeping Norwich’s physios very busy.</p><p><a href=";a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Both teams to score has paid off in seven of Bournemouth’s eight games this season, and five of Norwich’s eight matches. Punters might be tempted to back that outcome in this game, but it looks a bit risky at odds of just 1.44 (4/9). Norwich have failed to score in three of their last five matches, and Bournemouth lost 1-0 to Arsenal last time out. It might be better just to go for a straight Bournemouth win. Norwich have lost all four away games so far this season and they have injury problems, while the Cherries are playing nice football and attacking with plenty of menace.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Betfair">Bournemouth to win at 1.85 (17/20) with Betfair</a></strong></p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
