Last meeting between two sides:
In the last meeting between these two sides, both the teams engaged in an enthralling stalemate. Joshua King fired home a spot-kick to cancel out Salomon Rondon's strike a few minutes earlier, while Matt Richie scored a goal deep in the extra time to nullify King's second strike of the night. The two teams got to share the spoils from an open encounter.
At their home however, Newcastle had the last laugh. Rondon's brace gave them the advantage, as they were able to tame a high-soaring Bournemouth. Jefferson Lerma did manage to pull one back for the visitors, but Newcastle held on to the lead, to secure all three points from the game.

Will it be a thrilling battle to remember?
Despite, having an upper hand in the current rankings in the league table, it won't be a cakewalk for Bournemouth to relish. Though they are not enjoying the very best of outings for themselves, Newcastle United can turn things around on their day. Rondon will be missed, as he has left the club now and Joelinton will lead the front-line in his place.
On the other hand, Bournemouth has held on to their resolute defensive line, as they have let very few goals through in their last few matches. After being thumped by Leicester City earlier in the season, they have made serious amends to their defensive line. The results have been clearly visible. Aaron Ramsdale has also been very impressive under the bar.
There will be two goals scored in this match (3.6), with the 1-1 score-line being favoured the most (7.0), as per the odds on BigPesa.
