The central match of the 37th round of the Championship will take place on March 16. "Bournemouth" will host "Swansea". Will the hosts manage to earn three points? Find the answer in our prediction.


Due to failures in the last rounds - a draw with "Preston" (1:1) and a defeat to "Barnsley" (2:3), "Bournemouth" risk falling out of the fight for a place in the Top-6, which gives the right to play in the playoff matches for promotion in class.
