Aston Villa vs Newcastle United
England – Premier League
Date: Monday, 25 November 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Villa Park (Birmingham).
Due to Newcastle being comparatively more experienced in the top division, them being on form, coupled with their h2h domination, chances look higher for the team to register the three points. However, Aston Villa have performed admirably well on the scoring front at home, and this picks out BTTS as an attractive option.

Aston Villa vs Newcastle United Prediction
Villa had tried for a late comeback against Wolves the previous match-day but had to concede defeat at the end of the game. The hosts had slotted in goals in both halves – one apiece in each period, to lead 2-1 as the fixture progressed towards an end.
Then out of nowhere, guests Aston Villa scored a goal to raise the hopes of traveling fans. However, the home defense continued their job of closing down attacks by Villa, to ensure their victory.
Meanwhile, the Magpies made full use of their home status, as they played hosts to Bournemouth. The former was on the back-foot for quite some time, after conceding in the 14th minute.
But the hosts responded well to score twice, just before, and after the half time, to go ahead 2-1 in the scoresheet. The hosts later defended well to ensure the scoreline stayed the same way.
This Monday, the fact that Aston Villa were just promoted from the lower division this last summer, will come into play. Newcastle are much more versed in dealing with the pressure associated with the Premier League, and they are right now on a two-game winning run. Moreover, they have lost only once from their last five games, while their opposite number lost three of their last four match-ups.
In addition, Newcastle have fared greatly well against this rival in h2h encounters, and this further improves their chances of winning.
Be that as it may, the home advantage of Aston Villa, their scoring exploits in front of the home crowd this campaign, and Newcastle’s inability to keep clean sheets on the road, puts BTTS as a fan-favorite bet option, as these two take the pitch.
