Manchester City take on the visitors Bournemouth in the round 2 match of English Premier League. The match will be played on Saturday, August 13th at Etihad Stadium (Manchester).
Manchester city started confidently in the new Premier League season. On August 7th, the "citizens" played on the field of the strong "West Ham". Last season, the wards of David Moyes managed to win only 1 match out of 3 (including the cup). This time everything turned out quite easily: the result was a confidetn 2-0. Moreover, the double was designed by Erling Holland. The Norwegian newcomer scored the first goal from a penalty, and then used De Bruyne's pass. On the other hand, one should not forget how the Scandinavian was criticized for the Super Cup, and in general, the club lost 1-3 to Liverpool there quite deservedly. The question of the left in the defense remains, moreover, Cucurella is already at Chelsea. Joao Cancelo in the 1st round received a "yellow", as if reminding that he had no one behind him.

Bournemouth returned to the elite division after a 2-year stay in the Championship. At the same time, Scott Parker coped with the first, for himself, attempt - he worked at Fulham until 2021. And by the way, he also brought them to the Premier League, but could not keep Fulham there. It turned out to be a good start: at home, the Cherries beat the strong Aston Villa 2-0. The goal scored in the 2nd minute by Lerma helped a lot. After that, it was possible to play "according to the score." And, although the guests from Birmingham possessed the ball 2/3 of the time, they did not create especially chances - and in the end they also conceded from Moore. It is worth noting the transfer policy of the club. The brainchild of Maxim Demin still strictly counts money. So they only paid for Marcus Tavernier, Middlesbrough's midfield leader, in the summer. Rothwell, Fredericks and, after the start of the season, Neto, the goalkeeper from Barcelona, got the team for free!
Bournemouth only clung to a draw with Manchester City in 1999, when the clubs played in the First League. After the Cherries rose in the Premier League, they played 11 head-to-head matches, and all were won by the Citizens. Bookmakers are waiting for a very easy victory for Manchester City and an abundance of goals. But Bournemouth are well organized, and Guardiola's team is not devoid of a certain pragmatism. We recommend betting on "total under 3.5 goals".
Prediction for the match: Under 3.5 scored goals.
