Aston Villa – Brentford, Championship Prediction
Aston Villa started well with the championship and won twice, but in the last match they drew against Ipswich (1-1), as Ipswich played over half a time with a red card and generally this is not a team with good shape, so it was a disappointment for the Villans not to get the victory. Aston Villa split up with John Terry in the summer, but took the youngster, Tuanzebe, from United on loan. They sold the goalkeeper and their main left back, Gollini and Amavi, who went in the direction of Atalanta and Marseille. This may be one of the reasons Villa has not had a clean sheet since the beginning of the season. Still, they are in good shape, having recorded 8 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss in their last 10 games. Villa will again try to enter the top 6 and break into the Premier League after last season missed their chance and lost to Fulham in final playoff at Wembley.
Brentford continued their good performance from the last season. They finished 6 points from the top 6, which is progress compared to last season and also started the campaign with two wins and one draw. If they defeat Villa will enter the top 2 in the standings. They did not make big summer changes, but Brentford’s interesting thing is that almost all of the team is built by players from UK, which is important for the spirit of the team. Brentford have only lost 2 in their last 17 games and missed to score only once in the last 18 games.
The two teams do not have a rich history with each other. Even most of their matches are 70 years ago. It is important to note that Villa had only two losses as a host last season, but Brentford has 2 wins and 2 draws against Villa in the new era since 2016 here in the championship. Because of the good attacking options and Villa’s not so impressive defense, our prediction is “BTTS” of 1.72
Attackers Hogan and Davis have been injured for some time and now probably won’t play again
There are no absences
