With 14 matches remaining in the 2020/21 EFL Championship season, things are heating up as Bournemouth vs Watford this weekend at the Vitality looks to be one of the top matches of the round.
This match is imperative for Bournemouth as they sit one spot outside sixth place. Meaning if the season ended today, they would not be included in a Promotional Playoff. Four teams are within six points of the sixth spot in the table, and as the games fly by, Bournemouth has less and less chances to get a shot back in the Premier League.
Meanwhile, this match is also crucial for Watford as they sit in an awkward position, one spot outside of the automatic promotion. The Promotional Playoff can be cruel to teams who seemingly had good seasons, meaning Watford will want to avoid it at all costs.
Nonetheless, the Hornets, managed by Xisco Munoz, have won four Championship games in a row. Their recent form and cushion in points to their weekend competition is the reason why Watford is narrowly favored in this match.
Rovers came out with purpose but were indebted to Kaminski early in the second half as he made a vital save to divert Sema’s effort away for a corner.
But he made no mistake in the 61st minute as Watford restored their two-goal advantage. Sema was fed by Pedro and after his stepover afforded space, he slotted into the bottom-right corner.
It would have been four had Branthwaite not cleared Francisco Sierralta’s improvised effort off the line after Kaminski flapped at a 69th-minute corner.
Substitute Brereton handed the hosts a lifeline in the 82nd minute when he volleyed home Stewart Downing’s corner from close range, but Watford deservedly saw it out.
