Wolves vs Aston Villa
English Premier League
Date: 6 May 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
Wolves host Aston Villa in the West Midlands derby on Saturday afternoon at Molineux Stadium.
The hosts will be hoping to rebound from a horrendous performance in a 6-0 catastrophe against Brighton last weekend at The Amex.
It was by far the worst performance Wolverhampton have shown all season and head coach Julen Lopetegui will face a tough task in an attempt to raise the spirits in the dressing room ahead of this yet another difficult game against the Villains.
Wolverhampton Wanderers are still on a safe distance from the red zone thanks to a strong form in front of their fans of late.
Wolves won four of the previous five league outings at the Molineux and are currently seven points above the danger zone.
We must say the team have not allowed a single goal in any of the wins during the mentioned thread.
Aston Villa, on the other side, terminated their ten-game unbeaten streak with a narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United six days ago at the Old Trafford.
The Lions did have their chances in Manchester on several occasions, including the situation when Victor Lindelof cleared the ball off the line to deny the late equalizer.
Unai Emery’s squad are now seventh in the league but they will be keen to continue the fight for the top-six finish and a place in the UEFA Europa Conference League next season.
