The Premier League clash at Vitality Stadium on Saturday sees home team Bournemouth battling it out for the win against Aston Villa.

Bournemouth want to start off their new campaign with a bang in front of their own crowd. Aston Villa, however, will be very eager to make this a non-event for the loyal home supporters. We should be in for a treat this coming Saturday.

Bournemouth are relatively average in the art of goal-scoring these days. They claimed a steady 12 goals in their previous ten matches, for an average of 1.2 goals per game. They simultaneously allowed their opponents 20 goals, or an average of two goals a game. Furthermore, they fought their way to one clean sheets in this run.

Aston Villa scored 11 goals, conceded 15 and managed two clean sheets in their previous ten matches.

Bournemouth vs Aston Villa Preview

Bournemouth just have a single home win to show from their efforts in the past six Premier League matches at the Vitality Stadium. They also drew two and lost three of these six encounters, in which they scored seven and conceded 11 goals.

The target is set for Bournemouth whose aim is to stay above the relegation line in the coming season in the Premier League.

Aston Villa claimed two wins against one draw and three defeats in their last six away matches in the Premier League. The scoreline from these matches reads eight goals conceded and ten scored.

A top half finish is the bare minimum Aston Villa will expect from this season. The visitors are targeting a spot in Europe and know a good start will leave them in a good stead.

Having considered the match from different angles, be it form, strength in squad and match history, Aston Villa get our vote here. They should have enough to see them through a most likely tricky opponent in Bournemouth.
