Ipswich Town vs Aston Villa: Prediction
Aston Villa have struggled so far and are yet to come together as a team. But somehow they have managed to escape with draws in 4 of their last 5 matches. They are also unbeaten in 5 matches against Ipswich with 4 wins and a draw.
Mick McCarthy’s side are proving too had for oppositions to break down. They have conceded just 3 goals in their 6 league games, keeping clean sheets on 4 occasions. As a result a very low number of goals are expected to register in this match.
Ipswich’s good form also means that they are slight favourites to win this match. Also this is a perfect opportunity to end their win-less run against the Villains. It is wise to go for a double chance to be on the safer side.
