Aston Villa vs West Brom Prediction & Match Preview

Aston Villa vs West Brom
England – Championship Playoff
Date: Saturday, 11th May 2019
Kick-off at 12.30 UK/ 13.30 CET
Venue: Villa Park (Birmingham).

After the fierce regular season, we enter the playoffs of the EFL Championship. Without a doubt, it could be said that all teams involved have been exemplary, and surely, in an ideal scenario, all of them deserve entry into the Premier League. But such is football, that only one from these four will be afforded that chance.

Aston Villa was unlucky to finish fifth in the table, after the scary winning run they had. As such, they lost the benefit of having the home advantage in the return leg. West Brom, meanwhile, thoroughly impressed with their offensive masterclass this season, and recorded the second-most number of goals in the league after Norwich.

Aston Villa vs West Brom Prediction

Aston was unbeaten in 12 of their last 13 games, and impressively won ten of them. At home, they won five of their last six attempts and were unbeaten in 15 of their last 19. Against West Brom, they recorded eight of the last thirteen wins and six of the last nine at this venue.

West Brom, on the other hand, lost their last tie and was winless in two of their last three. On the road, they were winless in their last four and lost three of them as well. Keeping in line with the trend, expect the hosts to win the tie. But to be on the safe side, we’ll go with DNB.

Going on, take into account the astounding offensive performance of West Brom during the regular season. They scored the second-most number of goals of all the 24 teams in the league and considering the team will have a major confidence boost should they manage to get an away goal, count on these two teams to satisfy the BTS option.
