Aston Villa vs Ipswich
Date: Saturday, 26th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Villa Park (Birmingham).
AVFC have an easier opposition in Ipswich for Round 29 of the English Championship this Saturday.
The villa re one of the top scoring teas in the league this season. They have amassed 51 goals in just 28 matches but conceded 45 in return too. Mid-table of the Championship is highly congested in terms of points, so a win would help them improve their current position.
They definitely need improvement, as they are without a win in the last 5 matches in all competitions. They conceded goals in all those matches and 4 of those had over 2.5 goals at the final whistle. A 6 game winless run also exists at home for the Claret and Blue Army. In their previous 7 home games, the final score had over 2. 5goasl in total and they didn’t have a clean sheet as well.
The Tractor Boys are at the bottom of the lot expecting a certain relegation to League One. They have made a habit of conceding goals with 48 goals given away in the 28 matches so far. In this spell, they lost 16 matches and have only 3 wins in their account.
Apart from a win against Rotherham, all of their last 6 games were defeats. They have conceded 2 or more goals in 4 of those games. Manager Paul Lambert will have to encourage his players to finish the season on a high note.
All 6 of their previous matches on the road were defeats, with 2 or more goals given away in their last 8 away matches. So we can expect a goal fest at Villa Park this Saturday.
