Aston Villa vs Birmingham
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 25 November 2018
Kick-off at 12.00 UK/ 13.00 CET
Venue: Villa Park, Birmingham.
Two teams, similarly placed in the league standings, in the mid-table to be precise, take on each other at the Villa Park, this Sunday, to draw a curtain on the 18th round of the English Championship.
Birmingham had to endure a home draw against a team threatened of relegation this season, last matchday. They were hosting Hull, and Birmingham satisfied their fans with two first-half goals. At halftime, the scoreline read 2-0 in favor of Birmingham. The fans were expecting the home team to pile on the poor visitors.
But the story changed in the next half. Hull came a different beast in the next half. They put three goals past the home defense in a row. The scoreline changed to 2-3. Hull was threatening the hosts with a humiliating defeat, when Adams, the scorer of the first two goals, turned the savior once again. He completed his hattrick and rescued a point for his team.
Aston Villa recorded a tough away victory against an equally tough opponent, Derby. On top of keeping a clean sheet, Aston Villa put three goals in the space of ten minutes against a team with realistic chances of promotion to the Premier League next season. Villa morale must be sky high right now.
