Huddersfield vs Aston Villa
English Football League Championship
Date: 7th March 2017, Tuesday
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: The John Smith’s Stadium.
David Wagner is experiencing difficult times at The John’s Smith’s Stadium after conceding as many as eight goals in last two fixtures in all competitions.
Huddersfield Town have yet another tough outing in mid-week since they host the in-form Aston Villa side in an attempt to end the dismal streak.
The Terriers did not show a bad display against the current Championship leaders Newcastle United. Nonetheless, they were the dominant side on the pitch throughout most parts of the game.
The Magpies have, however, won it on pure quality and experience brutally punishing the mistakes in Huddersfield’s defensive line. Anyhow, the Terriers have had four straight home wins in Championship before the loss to Newcastle.
Unfortunately, the positive run came a bit too late for Aston Villa. The Lions made it three wins on the trot without conceding a single goal when they saw off the rock-bottom Rotherham United on Saturday afternoon.
Will Vaulks’ own goal pushed Villa in charge, while Jonathan Kodjia confirmed the good shape netting the second goal of the game which finished the job for Villa at AESSEAL New York Stadium.
Huddersfield vs Aston Villa: Head to head
The Lions lead the head to head tie by five wins. Interestingly, Huddersfield did not claim a single victory over Aston Villa in last six head to head encounters, including the one from Villa Park midway through August last year when the teams shared a point playing a 1-1 draw.
Villa were much closer to the victory thanks to the opener from Ross McCormack, but the substitute Michael Hefele came out with the equalizer in his first touch with the ball four minutes from time.
Huddersfield vs Aston Villa: Prediction
The Terriers are 1/1 favourites to get back on the winning ways, but we would not advise you to go with the home win in this one.
Both the form and the head to head clashes go in Villa’s favour which is why our main betting prediction will be the away win at 7/2.
Kodjia is certainly a terrific shout for the anytime goalscorer pick against the out-of-form defense of Huddersfield’s. You can have him to find the net at sky high 8/5 odds.
