Aston Villa vs Wolves Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Saturday, 27 June 2020. Kick-off 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET at the Villa Park.
The Wanderers are currently placed sixth in the table with 46 points, and are in possession of the final spot that affords direct entry into the Europa League.
However, Manchester United are placed just above them with the same number of points, and are in possession of the final Champions League spot, while the Spurs and the Blades are giving a chase to replace the Wanderers from their current standing.
As such, points are in dire need for the guests of the day. And it helps that they are taking on a newly-promoted team, as well as one that’s placed deep inside the relegation zone. Finally, considering the recent form of both, it becomes further clearer as to who are the favorites – Wolves.

Aston Villa vs Wolves: Prediction
The Lions lost 1-2 at home the last match-day, against Chelsea. The hosts had scored the first goal of the game, and even led for quite some time. But Frank Lampard’s men were just too much to handle for the Lions, and the former managed to score two goals later in the second half.
In the meantime, the Wanderers recorded a 0-2 win on the road the past game week, against West Ham. The fixture stood goalless for almost 75 minutes. But the visitors did manage to find the back of the net twice towards the end of the game.
As things stand, the Wanderers are easily the favorites. They are placed in the top-most tier, and are going after a Champions League ticket, whereas their counterparts are placed second to last in the table, and are major frontrunners to get relegated at the end of their campaign.
Moreover, the Wanderers were unbeaten in eight of their previous nine overall fixtures, and the sole loss in the period had come in the Europa League. On the other hand, their opposite number are winless in their last seven match-ups, six of which were losses.
Finally, the Wanderers had won the reverse fixture as well. Considering these factors, expect a win for Wolves this weekend.
