This was the third loss in four Championship trips for the Owls and they obviously struggle to find their feet on the road, despite rather solid performances in front of the home crowd. Jos Luhukay’s men could now be in for an even tougher challenge and it will be very interesting to see how they cope this time around.

Aston Villa have used the mid-week outing to their advantage and finally found a way back to the winning ways, as they beat Rotherham United 2-0 at this ground. They’ve ended a streak of six games without a win after a very solid start of the campaign and will now be very motivated to build on such consistency once again, sitting just outside the league’s top 6.

Aston Villa vs Sheffield Wednesday: Head-to-head

  • Aston Villa have beaten the rivals 2-4 in their last head-to-head clash in February, taking revenge for a loss suffered here earlier in the campaign.
  • Villans have earned 34 wins in 54 clashes at Villa Park, with just 11 losses also on the record.
  • We’ve seen a total of nine goals in the sides’ two matchups last term.

Aston Villa vs Sheffield Wednesday: Prediction

We will now back Aston Villa to build on the recent success in front of the home crowd and we’ll go for a Home win at 1.57. We have seen them in very solid form at this ground and they should have what it takes to capitalize on the rivals’ woes away from home.

However, we’ve seen Sheffield Wednesday regularly finding the net despite struggles for consistency and Villans could have to outgun them to secure the points once again. That’s why we’ll go for a third consecutive high-scoring contest between the sides too and back Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.85.

Aston Villa vs Sheffield Wednesday: Bet Tips

  • Villa to win @ 5/8 (1.62)
  • Over 2.5 goals FT @ 9/10 (1.90).
