Chelsea vs Bournemouth – Carabao Cup: Chelsea and Bournemouth play this Wednesday night in Stamford Bridge, on a match of the Carabao Cup’s round of 16.
Chelsea is in 3rd place of the Premier League with 38 points conquered, recording 9 wins, 7 draws and 2 losses.
When it comes to goals, the Blues have 32 goals scored and 14 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.6 goals per match.
The home advantage of Conte’s team hasn’t proven itself so decisive when compared to past years, getting the same amount of points at home and away from home. On the 2 previous rounds, Chelsea have eliminated Nottingham 5-1 and Everton 2-1.

So far they have recorded homogeneous records playing as visitors or in front of their own fans, getting the same amount of points in both conditions.
On the last 3 rounds, Bournemouth has beaten Birmingham 2-1, Brighton 1-0 and Middlesbrough 3-1.
Chelsea vs Bournemouth – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Chelsea, practically out of the title race, should have the ambition of conquering other trophies such as this Carabao Cup.
Antonio Conte has already revealed he will rotate some players, but still, the roster of the London team presents other resources that Bournemouth doesn’t.
The visitors are going through a very delicate stage, not getting a single win on the last 6 rounds. On the last round they were battered 4-0 by Liverpool, and they are currently 1 point away from the relegation zone.
They will travel to Manchester to face the Citizens this weekend, so I believe they will also rotate some players. I believe on a match without much history, with the final result being a comfortable win for Antonio Conte’s men.
