Aston Villa vs Brentford

Aston Villa will be aiming to make amends for a 4-1 loss to Man City when they welcome Brentford to their Villa Park on Saturday afternoon. The Villans are eyeing their 12th win at home, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Leon Bailey is widely expected to return to the starting XI after coming as a substitute in the midweek defeat, while key attacker Ollie Watkins is a major doubt.

The capital club, on the other hand, are on an eight-game winless run in the Premier League ahead of the trip to Birmingham. In their last meeting at the venue Villa crushed Brentford 4-0 and we predict that history is going to repeat itself. Kevin Schade faces race against the clock to be fit for Saturday’s match, while all Ben Mee, Ethan Pinnock. Joshua Da Silva, Aaron Hickey, and Christian Norgaard remain on the sidelines with injuries.

How the bookies view it

Villa are odds-on to get the win here with 8/11 currently the best price with JILICC.

Brentford are 4/1 outsiders with the same firm. The draw is 16/5 with JILICC.

Recent head to heads

Villa came from behind to seal a 2-1 win at Brenford in December with a couple of late goals. Last season, Villa stung the Bees with a 4-0 success in Birmingham.

Incredibly, Brentford have never, ever won at Villa Park which is some going since they were formed 135 years ago!

Players to watch

With no Watkins, Villa turned to Colombian hitman Jhon Duran and he scored his second goal in four games at the Etihad. He is 15/8 to score anytime with JILICC.

Ivan Toney may have scored for England, but he’s now gone seven games without a goal for the Bees, which is unlike Brentford’s talisman. He is 19/10 to change that with JILI CC.

Aston Villa vs Brentford Prediction

Brentford did offer a fantastic display against Manchester United last weekend. However, we do not want to overthink this. Aston Villa have 11 wins in 15 league games at Villa Park this season. They looked great in a 2-0 victory over Wolves seven days ago. They are as motivated as ever to keep collecting points and stay above Tottenham in the race for the top-four finish and a place in the UEFA Champions League next season.

On the other side, we have Brentford who sit 15th in the league table. The Bees lost 11 of 15 away outings in this term of the Premier League. Last but not least, Aston Villa will go into this on the back of two wins and draws each in the last four matches against the Bees. The home win is the way to go at the 1.65 odds.

We will alternatively take the 1.50 odds offered for the Over 2.5 goals pick on Saturday. Brentford fired 31 shots in the home match against Manchester United seven days ago. They had previously been on a run of four consecutive league games that saw three or more goals scored. Seven of Aston Villa’s last eight home fixtures across competitions also provided at least three goals.
