Tottenham vs Aston Villa
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 10 August 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).
Aston Villa has just climbed to the top branch, after an exhausting, and nail-biting playoff as well regular campaign. They had finished fifth in the Championship table the last season and got a ticket to the post-season. There, despite the presence of some truly great competitors, they managed to come out on top and grabbed an entry into the Premier League.
After all this heroics, it seems a bit unfair that they are supposed to open their campaign against Champions League runners-up, Spurs, and that too on the road.
Coming to Mauricio Pochettino’s men, once more they endured a season without any major silverware. All the talented men they have on their roster seem to be wasting their prime – as per fans.
PL triumph will take an unprecedented level of commitment, and performance, taking into account the presence of titans like Liverpool and Manchester City. On that note, it’s important that they begin with a win, and a huge one at that, considering the several conditions that are in favor of the team.

Tottenham vs Aston Villa Prediction
Harry Kane’s team could be rightfully considered amongst one of the best in Europe, and this claim was abundantly supported by performances on the pitch last season. They had taken out the mighty Manchester City from their dream-run for the quadruple and almost knocked them off their track for the league title too.
On top of that, they almost had the Champions League trophy in their kitty, and for sure the squad will be riled up for an even better performance this time around.
Considering they are taking on a new entrant to the competition, and that too at home, Spurs are the default favorites for the tie.
Moreover, they have performed fantastically well against this opposition over the course of the last many years. In fact, they recorded wins in nine of the last ten clashes, and in six of the last seven at this stadium. By all means, await a victory for the home team.
