England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 21 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Portman Road Stadium (Ipswich).
Ipswich Town are going to take on Aston Villa in the 44th round of English Championship on Saturday afternoon. Home side is stuck in the middle of the table, while the visitors want to secure the best position possible before entering the promotion playoffs.
Although they used to be competitive for the promotion playoffs in the previous seasons, in the current on Ipswich Town couldn’t do more than putting average performances. They are 12th placed side and cannot hope of going up on the ladder. Bryan Klug’s side didn’t manage to defend themselves properly, although they were fairly productive in the front. In the last five matches they celebrated only once and suffered three defeats. Ipswich Town’s home displays are worse than in the previous seasons since they’ve allowed seven defeats when playing in front of their fans.
Aston Villa secured their place in the promotion playoffs and now they hope that they can catch up Fulham on the 3rd position. They lost only once in the past five games and managed to tie two straight victories. Albert Adomah and the lads are one of the most efficient sides in the competition, while their teammates in the back are doing fine job. The visitors are playing very well at away pitches, however they didn’t manage to celebrate a win in their last three outings.
Ipswich Town vs Aston Villa: Head-to-head
Aston Villa are much more successful in their head to head clashes and they’ve allowed only one win to their rivals since 2000. The crowd wasn’t able to see many goals in their last five clashes and the last two at Portman Road finished with a goalless draw.
Ipswich Town vs Aston Villa: Prediction
The hosts can play for the sake of playing, while the away side could get more with a win from this clash. Therefore, we are putting the money on Aston Villa’s victory.
Both teams were involved in low-scoring matches lately and they could stick with their tradition and provide another match with two goals at most.
