Aston Villa took all the points in their first game after making a complete turnaround against Hull City. The Villans went behind early in the game but equalized rather quickly. They struck their fatal blow in the space of 5 minutes in the second half scoring more goals for the full time result of 1-3.

The Villans had a bit of turbulence before the season but since Steve Bruce is set to stay the team can concentrate on the main goal – promotion to the Premier League. The team has plenty of experience and definitely has the needed quality.

Wigan started the best possible way following their promotion from League 1. Their opening fixture saw them face struggling Sheffield Wednesday. The team showed cutting edge in front of goal and managed to put 3 past Dawson eventually winning the game 3-2.

Athletic had a wonderful last season as the team won promotion and reached far in the Cup. Now the team has a bit more different task – to stabilize themselves in this level of competition.

Aston Villa vs Wigan: Head-to-head

  • Aston Villa have scored in 4 consecutive games against Wigan

  • Aston Villa is unbeaten in 4 games against Wigan winning the last 3

Aston Villa vs Wigan: Predictions

Both sides are playing fairly open football. Wigan like to control the game but will probably play a bit more cautiously against opponents such as Aston Villa.

The Villans will want to make a statement in their first home game this season and will try to punish their opponents.

We can expect an open game with Aston Villa being favorites to take the points.
