Sheffield Wednesday vs Aston Villa
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 6th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Hillsborough (Sheffield).
Aston Villa is in awe-inspiring form the last several match-days. They won the last five league ties in a row, only which Norwich has been able to replicate. Villa occupies the last playoff spot in the table as of now, and with several competitors eyeing the same position, will want to move higher in the pecking order, to ease off pressure.
Sheffield Wednesday is one of those competitors and is just four points below the playoff mix. They are also unbeaten in their last five league fixtures and has the additional home advantage to lean on this Saturday. Moreover, they have the confidence of recording an away win in the reverse fixture of this tie.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Aston Villa Prediction
Aston is easily one of the very best teams in the Championship right now. They won their last five games and scored two or more in four of those. In addition, they recorded six of the last nine h2h wins, and three of the last four at this venue. They are also determined to consolidate a spot in the playoffs and want to climb above Bristol in the table, to cool off some pressure. Finally, they have been one of the best goal-scoring sides in the competition, with 70 already. Expect an Aston win this Saturday.
But Sheffield might have a thing or two to say about that. They are just four points away from a playoff position and is in good form as well. They are unbeaten in their last 11 games, and in their last 11 at home. They have also managed to score two or more goals in three of their last four home ties as well. All in all, everything points towards a goal-fest this weekend. The win will most probably go to Villa, owing to their better form, and better h2h records, but Sheffield will figure out a way to score.
