Aston Villa vs Tottenham
England Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 13 January 2021
Kick-Off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: Villa Park, Birmingham.
The most anticipated match during the mid-week Premier League action is happening at Villa Park on Wednesday night where Aston Villa attempts to stop Tottenham Hotspur’s progress towards the top of the table. The Villans have had a great start to this campaign, managing to collect 26 points from 15 games and cause a couple of upsets.
That’s definitely a massive improvement in comparison to previous season when they barely avoided relegation. Head manager Dean Smith is doing one hell of a job, insisting on buying Ollie Watkins from Brentford last year. Striker has returned the favour by scoring six goals already. Can they stop Mourinho’s squad though? Away win is currently priced at low 1.40 rate.
Aston Villa vs Tottenham Head-to-head
- Last season’s clash between these two opponents in Birmingham was extremely entertaining.
- After a lot of battle, Tottenham took a narrow 3-2 victory thanks to the goal of Heung Min-Son scored in the stoppage time.
- There was total of 146 h2h’s so far, and Tottenham have 65-49 lead in terms of victories. Their stats here at Villa Park are not positive though (lost 28 duels, won 26).
- Both of last season’s duels had more than three goals total.
Aston Villa vs Tottenham Prediction
The main reason why the odds on away win here are so low has nothing related to quality of teams. Ten standard roster members of Aston Villa were tested positive last weekend, which was the main reason why U23 squad played against Liverpool in the FA Cup. It is still unknown if any of them will be ready for Wednesday, but most likely not. Dean Smith will once again have to rely on reserves.
Tottenham didn’t have such troubles, beating lower division squad Marine on Sunday without issues 0-5. Mourinho used that opportunity to rest some of the key players. Carlos Vinicius has taken the given chance to score a hat-trick. Despite his great form, we are expecting to see standard duo Kane/Son against Villa. Tottenham’s current record on the road in EPL is four wins, three draws and one defeat.
Considering the current state of the hosts, we feel confident in picking away win HT and FT at 2.10. Since we don’t expect much from severed Villans, Under 2.5 goals could be a massive value bet.
