Aston Villa vs Bournemouth for the English Premier League championship match on Saturday at Villa Park Stadium.
Aston Villa welcomes Bournemouth in their first Premier League game at Villa Park since returning to the Premier League following their 3-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur.
They recently made it to the Premier League and had been a dream when John McGinn scored the goal against Spurs but was undone about fifteen minutes to full time.
However, Villa’s performance was promising, the team will have the opportunity to earn points at home against their opponents if they maintain the same levels they did in the first minutes against Spurs.
Coach Smith will be well aware of what is requested, although it is a return to the Premier League, the club spent about 100 million euros on acquiring players. Fans are looking forward to mimicking the fantastic Wolverhampton Wanderers campaign last season.
Smith has many options on the bench and looks forward to playing some new players. Only James Chester should be left out due to injury.
The Cherries have their second consecutive match against Premier League teams, and Eddie Howe expects his side to do a little better this time after a 1-1 draw with Sheffield United at home.
Bournemouth is disappointed with the way the season opener ended when they drew level in the final minutes of regular time. Edie Howe made only one substitution in that game, the Cherries coach may be tempted to make some changes against Villa to avoid a replica of the previous game.
Despite having been in the Premier League for a few seasons, Bournemouth has a slightly more modest budget than their opponents, spending less than half the amount of Villa.
These two teams met only three times in the 21st century. Villa has won two of these three matches. Howe has some players with physical problems, Lewis Cook, Simon Francis, David Brooks, Junior Stanislas and the new signings Lloyd Kelly and Arnaut Danjuma are not available. It is likely that Wilson is part of the team and can play for the first half.
Aston Villa has scored many goals but conceded many last season. Although Bournemouth has a lower budget than Villa, I think visitors can win this game.
