AFC Bournemouth v Liverpool FC

Bournemouth came into this match propping up the foot of the table. They’d lost their last two games and desperately needed a win, to begin moving up the table and out of the relegation zone.

Live Over/Under 2.5 Goals Trading

This game looked a good bet for Over 2.5 goals and the ball was in the back of the Bournemouth net early on which seemed like a good omen for the game as a whole. The goal was ruled offside, but both teams had chances with Bournemouth playing well above themselves and their league position.

In the 28′, Bournemouth scored with a goal from Philip Billing (1-0). The match stayed that way until half-time.


In the second half both teams had a few chances but the biggest opportunity fell to Liverpool who on 67′ were awarded a penalty after a VAR check. Mo Salah missed the penalty. 

At this stage I decided to cut my losses. The game looked a bit ‘scrappy’ to me. Liverpool weren’t playing well and Bournemouth, although playing better than their opponents, just couldn’t seem to finish.

In the end the score remained the same until full time.

Final Score 1-0.

Below you can read a bit of information on AFC Bournemouth and Liverpool football clubs:

AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth or simply ‘The ‘Cherries’, is a professional football club based in the coastal town of Bournemouth, Dorset, England. The club was founded in 1899 as Boscombe and has a long and proud history.

In 1971, AFC Bournemouth changed their strip to red and black stripes, resembling that of A.C.Milan. The team badge also changed shortly afterwards. The background stripes were based on the club’s shirt colours and the foreground image was that of a player heading a ball. This was in honour of Dickie Dowsett, who had been a top goal scorer for the club, during the Fifties and Sixties.

In recent years, the club has become known for its attacking style of play and commitment to developing young players.

Liverpool FC

Liverpool Football Club is one of the most successful football clubs in the world. Based in the city of Liverpool in the north-west of England.

The club was founded in 1892 by John Houlding, following a dispute between the directors of Everton FC and its president. John Houlding, owned Anfield stadium at the time, and the disagreement resulted in Everton moving to Goodison Park, which left Houlding with an empty stadium. So, he founded Liverpool F.C., and joined the Lancashire League. After winning the league title in their first season, Liverpool joined the Football League for the 1893–94 season.

Liverpool or ‘The Reds’ initially played in a blue and white strip, but switched to their iconic all-red strip in 1964. The kit change was driven by Bill Shankly because he thought it would help to strike fear into the opposition.

It’s amazing to think that Liverpool were actually relegated in the 1953/54 season and did not make it back into the First Division until 1962/63.

Sporting Rivalry between AFC Bournemouth and Liverpool FC

AFC Bournemouth and Liverpool FC do not have a deep-seated sporting rivalry. This is largely due to the fact that the two teams have not played each other on a regular basis, with Bournemouth only recently being promoted to the Premier League in 2014/15.

One of the most memorable matches was in December 2016, when Bournemouth came from 3-1 down to beat Liverpool 4-3 at the Vitality Stadium. The victory was seen as a major upset and marked one of the most thrilling comebacks in Premier League history.

Mo Salah Hat-trick

Despite not having a deep-seated sporting rivalry, both Bournemouth and Liverpool are known for their passionate fan bases, who provide a lively atmosphere at their respective home stadiums. Liverpool’s fans, in particular, are renowned for their “You’ll Never Walk Alone” anthem, which is sung before every home game and has become synonymous with the club.
