Aston Villa vs Wolves
England – Carabao Cup
Date: Wednesday, 30 October 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Villa Park (Birmingham).
The Villans are finding life tough in the top division after they gained promotion just this last summer. Still, they have had some inspiring performances once in a while against some tough oppositions, which rightfully gives them the right to dream big against the incoming Wolves.
The Wanderers meanwhile have failed to live up to the expectations they had set for themselves after their fantastic run in 2018-19, which saw them qualify for Europa League.
Still, with a lot at stake this Wednesday, we can definitely count on a worthwhile performance from both.

Aston Villa vs Wolves Prediction
This being a one-off tie, competition can be at its finest. Both sides have been subpar in the league, and a quarter berth in the Carabao can certainly calm things down for fans, and act as a confidence-booster for the players.
The home advantage does have the potential to play a major role in determining the outcome of the game. Villa remained unbeaten in seven of their former ten overall games, and in 14 of their previous 17 in front of the home crowd.
Importantly, they scored two or more goals in five of their preceding six match-ups, and in 15 of their prior 21 home ties.
On the other hand, their counterparts have just two wins to show for from their league campaign so far, and one of these victories had come against the dead-last placed Watford. In addition, the Wanderers also have struggled at this venue in h2h clashes.
Taking these observations into account, the chance of the hosts qualifying seems more.
However, this certainly won’t be a one-sided affair. Wolves may have been devoid of favorable results, but their frontline has done their job satisfactorily well. To quote a stat, the squad found the back of the net in an astonishing 22 of their last 25 overall match-ups, and in 13 of their last 15 on the road.
As such, the scope of BTTS is very high in this, which is about to be a very competitive tie.
