Burton Albion vs Aston Villa Prediction & Match Preview

Burton Albion vs Aston Villa
England – League Cup
Date: Tuesday, 15 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Pirelli Stadium.

The Lions showed just how good they were in the clutch, as they went on a crazy four-game unbeaten run in the final phase of their PL campaign the last season, to avoid getting relegated. Keep note that this stretch included a win against Arsenal, and a draw against Everton.

And just this last match-day, they followed it up with a win to nil against Manchester United. Suffice it to say that confidence is sky-high at the players’ camp as of now.

And, this Tuesday, they are pitted against the Brewers, who are from the third division. This fact alone should pick Dean Smith’s men as the favorites.

On top of that, the Lions have a great h2h record against this opponent, and to further pile on, Jake Buxton’s men are going through a worrying streak of performances.

By all means, expect an Aston Villa win this game week.

Burton Albion vs Aston Villa: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Disregarding two games, Smith’s men have a 100% winning record against this rival.
  • They have also scored two or more goals in all but two fixtures so far.
  • In fact, they have scored four or more goals in two of the previous three match-ups till now, and three or more goals in three of the former four games.
  • Away from home, the Lions won two of the preceding three encounters, 0-4.

Burton Albion vs Aston Villa: Prediction

The Brewers are on a two-game losing run (where they conceded a total of six goals), and they were also winless in 14 of their former 16 overall fixtures. They are also on a seven-match winless run at home, and have not kept a clean sheet at this stadium since February.

On the other hand, their opposite number are on a five-game unbeaten run, and their latest match-up was a win against Manchester United.

In addition, and most importantly, the guests are an in-form team from the Premier League, the best competition in the world, while their counterparts are from the third division in England.

And to further swing the scales, Smith’s men also do have a great h2h record against this rival.

As such, expect a dominating performance from Aston Villa this Tuesday.
