Our tipster thinks that the bulk of the action will come after the break when the Canaries travel to take on the Cherries in the League Cup on Tuesday

Bournemouth play host to Norwich City in the last 16 of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.

Both sides come into this clash in a rich vein of form and there is plenty of potential for a cup classic on the south coast.

Eddie Howe's Cherries are unbeaten in seven home matches in all competitions so far this season, while  the Canaries have come out on top in eight of their last 10 matches.

Latest odds

SportPesa make the Premier League club their 4/7 (1.57) favourites to reach the quarter-finals of the competition for the third time in five seasons.

Norwich have beaten Stevenage, Cardiff City and Wycombe Wanderers to reach this stage and SportPesa go 17/4 (5.25) that Daniel Farke's men win this one. The same firm go 33/10 (4.30) that penalty kicks are required to settle the match.

Team news

Callum Wilson and David Brooks were both on target for the Cherries on Saturday, but the in-form duo are amongst a raft of first-team regulars expected to be rested for Tuesday's tie.

Veteran striker Jermain Defoe could make a rare start, while Artur Boruc could replace Asmir Begovic in goal.

Jordan Rhodes hit a hat-trick for the Canaries in the previous round and the Scottish striker - the competition's joint top scorer this term - will be determined to get amongst the goals again here.

Goals galore?

There have been at least three goals scored in six of Bournemouth's last seven matches and SportPesa go 20/29 (1.69) that the trend continues in this clash.

Narrow Norwich win?

Each of Norwich's last eight wins has been by a single goal margin and SportPesa go 11/2 (6.50) that the Canaries win by one goal on the south coast.


Six of Norwich's last seven goals have come after the break, while four of the five goals in Bournemouth's thrilling 3-2 win against Blackburn Rovers in the previous round of this competition also arrived in the second half.

The 20/23 (1.87) quote from SportPesa, then, for most of the scoring to come after the interval could represent real value for punters ahead of Tuesday's tie.
