With Liverpool’s strong recent play, they are positioning themselves to potentially win the EFL Cup, and standing in their way is 17th-seeded Bournemouth. Given that Liverpool have soundly defeated The Cherries 13 times in their last 15 meetings, with a nine-game win streak, it’s difficult to forecast anything other than more of the same.
Bournemouth isn’t going to lie down, though, coming into this game hot off of their first hard-fought victory over Burnley. And if they are able to take advantage of the gap left by Andy Robertson, who is still out, they could potentially give Liverpool a scare.
However, with Mohamed Salah’s excellent play over the last several games, he alone could snuff out any chances of a Bournemouth upset. The mismatch in depth as well as important players will be a handful, to say the least.
It’ll be exciting to see if Liverpool can continue their impressive run while Bournemouth faces the challenge of even maintaining their Premier League status.
In all likelihood, this is going to be a near mirror of Liverpool’s last 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest. If they’re able to make use of its much stronger offensive and defensive lines, it really should be in the bag.

Bournemouth vs Liverpool Prediction and Odds
- Pick: Liverpool to win
- Odds: -200 (TonyBet)
This match will most likely be a one-sided clinic put on by Liverpool’s offensive line. Bournemouth simply doesn’t have the personnel to deal with the onslaught of Mohammed Salah, Diogo Jota, and Darwin Núñez
While one soccer club is fighting for their spot in the premiership, the other has been at the top of the league all year. No matter what part of the field you take a look at, Bournemouth is simply outmatched.
The only chance Bournemouth has is to take advantage of the injured Robertson. But Jurgen Klopp doesn’t seem too stressed about it, considering he is rotating in Caoimhin Kelleher and other bench players.
Bournemouth vs Liverpool Betting Tips
- Pick: over 3 goals
- Odds: -105 (TonyBet)
As the Reds boast a significantly stronger offensive line compared to Bournemouth, we predict a high-scoring soccer match. The relentless attacking pressure, led by the formidable Mohamed Salah, will most likely bury the opposition.
It’s hard to see any future where this offensive dominance doesn’t lead to at least three total goals in the match
If you just take a look at these two teams’ previous matches, they have combined for three or more goals in four of their last five meetings. And that’s not even to mention the defensive hole Robertson leaves in the Liverpool starting 11. Every sign points to a high-scoring outing.
You can expect an exciting, goal-filled onslaught as Liverpool makes Swiss cheese out of The Cherries’ lacking defensive line.
Bournemouth vs Liverpool Betting Trends
Before placing a bet on the upcoming match, consider these trends: Bournemouth has found the back of the net in three of their last four encounters with Liverpool, suggesting a likelihood of both teams scoring. On the other hand, Liverpool boasts an impressive record, securing victories in eight out of their last ten matches, including triumphs over teams that have previously beaten Bournemouth. This positions Liverpool as the favorites to win the match.
