Bournemouth and Newcastle United meet at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday, 16th March and it could prove to be a very close match.
The teams are separated by just three points in the Premier League, with Bournemouth in twelfth place and Newcastle in thirteenth. Neither team will want to risk dropping further down the league, so this match could prove to be a real battle.
Bournemouth enjoyed a win over Huddersfield Town last weekend, but that was their first win in a few weeks with loses to Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool and a draw with Wolves since early February. However, Newcastle should be easier opposition than what they have faced in recent weeks.
Newcastle went 2 – 0 down against Everton last weekend before coming back to win 3 – 2. They will be looking to harness this same fighting spirit in this game. Newcastle won their last encounter 2 – 1, but this time Bournemouth are at home and that may give them the edge that they need to win.
