Bournemouth vs MK Dons Predictions


Bournemouth have a good record at home in the EFL Cup. They should beat an out of form MK Dons side, who concede a lot of goals.


I am backing a Bournemouth win and BTTS. 

  • Bournemouth have won 4 of their last 6 home matches (EFL Cup)
  • Bournemouth have seen BTTS in their last 4 matches (all competitions)
  • Bournemouth have won their last 2 matches against MK Dons (all competitions)
  • MK Dons have lost their last 3 matches (all competitions)
  • MK Dons have seen BTTS in 3 of their last 4 matches (all competitions)

Head-to-Head


Bournemouth have a 6-4 advantage against the MK Dons in 13 meetings with three draws. 

The Cherries beat MK Dons 3-0 in the last meeting between the sides in the 2018/19 EFL Cup. 

Bournemouth Form


Bournemouth have had a patchy pre-season following one win from three friendly matches. The Cherries beat Linense 4-2 at the Vitality Stadium before consecutive 2-1 losses to Granada and Chelsea.

Bournemouth started brightly against Chelsea and restricted the Blues in the first half. 

Scott Parker’s side had 42% possession, seven shots and took a surprise lead against the run of play through Emiliano Marcondes on 66 minutes. They couldn’t hold on for the win as Chelsea scored two late goals. 

Bournemouth have been in decent form at home, winning four of their last seven in all competitions. 

They have been hard to beat at home in the EFL Cup in recent years. The south coast side are unbeaten in 10 of their last 11 home EFL matches in 90 minutes. 

Bournemouth Injuries & Team News


Midfielder Junior Stanislas and defender Lewis Cook both remain sidelined through injury.

MK Dons Form 


MK Dons have had a poor pre-season, losing two friendlies 3-1 to Bristol City and Tottenham. 

Russel Martin’s side had some chances against Spurs, with 10 shots on goal and 47% possession. 

They couldn’t keep out the Premier League side as they scored two first-half goals and added a third late on. John Freeman scored a consolation for the Dons in the closing stages. 

It was MK Dons third consecutive loss in all competitions and they have failed to win in their last four. 

Martin’s side have shown an eye for goal despite recent results. They have scored in six of their last seven matches, including in three consecutive away matches. 

MK Dons Injuries & Team News


Striker Max Watters returned to the starting XI for the Spurs match. He could retain his place against Bournemouth.

Andrew Fisher could return to the squad following a recent injury.

Verdict

Bournemouth’s decent home form should give them an edge against an MK Dons side lacking confidence.
 
Both teams score and concede regularly, so I am backing a Bournemouth win and BTTS.
