Aston Villa – Leeds, Championship Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR ASTON VILLA - LEEDS
The club Aston Villa can be congratulated on the appointment of Dean Smith at the head of the team. Since that has happened, the Villains have been beaten from Norwich and QPR in away games, but then recorded 4 wins and 3 draws. The draws were not a great achievement, but the WBA and Nottingham matches were extremely dynamic and spectacular. 5-5 with Forest is a result that can rarely be seen. Aston Villa still has only 1 home loss and no match in which they have not scored.
Leeds was the team at the top before this round and Bielsa again found the right formula. After a shameless loss of 1-4 vs WBA in a visit, they scored 5 consecutive wins. Before this round they were 6 points in front of the 3rd and 1 ahead of Norwich. It is clear that they will be happy to be champions in Championship, but the most important thing is to get into the Premier League. By this logic they managed to win some matches with 1-0 and with a fairly frugal game, habitually a champions team. Bielsa knows about this, because he has enough experience.
For Villa victory is more important. They are also hosts and in case of success here, they will come even closer to the top 6. At the same time, Leeds will not want to interrupt their good series. The fact is that Leeds’ defense has been very good lately, but now they will be guests of one of the teams with strongest attack. We expect Leeds not to lose, although hosts are a light favorite. However, against the background that Villa did not score a goal in just one game this season, we tend to believe that this will not be the second. Prediction – Both teams to score at 1.60
