Aston Villa vs Burnley
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Villa Park (Birmingham).
Aston Villa have no one but themselves to blame for the 3-2 defeat that they suffered at the Emirates Stadium last week as they let slip a one-goal lead twice, that too against a ten-man Arsenal. Dean Smith’s men have just one win from their previous six games in the Premier League and are currently just a point away from hitting rock bottom in the table.
Burnley ended a four-match winless run in the top flight in their respective matchup with Norwich at home, with the Clarets slotting two unanswered goals into the back of the net. The visitors though have not been faring well on the road, the last of which saw them share the spoils with Brighton after the final scores read 1-1.
With home advantage favoring Villa in this one, it looks like Burnley will have to put in the extra effort if they are to salvage even a point.

Aston Villa vs Burnley Prediction
The hosts have been showing a lot more promise in the comforts of their home and are unbeaten in their last two games in a running here. Furthermore, the away side are yet to get a taste of success on the road and have already stumbled once in one of their outings.
It also needs saying that the guests have picked up a win on just one occasion in their last four visits to this venue, apart from being at the losing end twice. Hence, Aston Villa have got to be the favorites to come out on top this weekend.
However, Burnley have garnered a point in each of their last two outings. Taking into account that Villa were held to a stalemate in their previous home clash as well, the safest punt would have to be a double chance backing either a draw or Villa to win.
Additionally, the visitors have been clinical in the final third, and have found the back of the net in each of their last three outings in a row. Considering that two out of their past three head to head clashes here have also seen goals down each end, count on both teams to have their names on the scoresheet at the last blast of the whistle.
