Burton vs Aston Villa
England – The Championship
Date: Saturday, 8th April 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Pirelli Stadium.
Burton got some breath back after winning over relegation rivals Nottingham and later surprisingly getting the 3 points over Huddersfield away. The team is now 4 points clear of Blackburn but still their job is not nearly enough done. Last game they lost to league leaders Newcastle but actually put up a good fight and looked like they could actually get something out of the game.
Aston Villa won with the minimal 1-0 at home against QPR. The team now sits in 11th position 9 points away from play-off spots. The Villans are in a 4 wins in a row streak and on top of that all of them with a clean sheet. The team’s defense looks very good at the moment and the results are starting to come. Actually the goal that Villa conceded against Huddersfield five games ago is the only one in their last 8 games.
Burton vs Aston Villa: Head to head
These two teams have met just 2 times previously both of them won by Aston Villa with a full time score of 2-1.
Burton vs Aston Villa: Prediction
Aston Villa are finally showing what they are capable of. The team is in form the defense is letting fewer and fewer goals but it’s all coming a bit late as the difference between them and the play-off spots is large enough. The main pick here should be for under 2.5 goals considering Villa’s defensive record recently and Burton’s troubles up front. Riskier pick is for Aston Villa to win without conceding.
