AFC Bournemouth vs Derby County – Prediction (Championship – 31.10.2020)

H2H: Bournemouth v Derby – Comparison.

Arnaut Groenenveld proved the difference last time out, scoring from the bench to establish himself as Bournemouth’s top scorer (three goals). Martyn Waghorn gave Derby a 1-0 HT lead in their last two matches, and now looks to score in three straight league games for the first time since 2017/18. Bournemouth managers typically start strong, as Jason Tindall (W4, D4) continues to progress towards predecessor Eddie Howe’s 14-game unbeaten start in the league.

Bournemouth Insights.

Masters of game management, Bournemouth produced yet another organised performance in midweek to extend their unbeaten Championship start to eight games (W4, D4). Three of their four victories saw just a one-goal winning margin, whilst six of their eight games have produced under 2.5 goals. These solid displays represent a considerably better start than their last promotion campaign (+7 points). Bournemouth are yet to fall behind in a home match, and haven’t conceded here across 377 minutes of competitive action. However two of their three home league victories did come after a drawn first half (HT: W1, D3), which is impressive considering opposition teams have averaged 5.25 goal attempts here before HT (BOU: 3.75).

Derby Insights.

In contrast, Derby County have produced their worst eight-game Championship start in over a decade (W1, D2, L5). However, they won just one of their opening eight matches last term, but followed it with a 3-2 victory in round nine. Notably though, Derby’s last five games featured under 2.5 goals, and they failed to win despite leading at HT in the previous two. Given the fact that five of the seven overall goals in Derby’s away league games have come beyond HT, it’s no surprise that three of their four Championship road trips saw a differing FT result to that of HT. Topically, Derby’s win-rate as away outsiders since the start of last term stands at just 28% (W7, D5, L13).
