Aston Villa – Sheffield U., Championship Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR VILLA - SHEFFIELD UNITED
Villa did not manage to win their last tour to Reading, which was quite disappointing, as it could have brought them closer to the top 6, and now the difference is 4 points. However, the performance of Villa at home is much more stable. Yes, they often concede goals, but most importantly, they have only 2 home losses this season, one of them coming from Leeds.
Sheffield United continues to be Leeds and Norwich’s closest chaser, and the 3-point difference with them leaves them not only in the fight for the top 2, but also for the first place and the blades have recently taken a very important draw just against Norwich in the visit. The progress of this team in the last 3 seasons is sensational, so we can only expect good things from them.
As Aston Villa scores many goals, especially at Villa Park, but concede much, too, and Sheffield United is one of the strongest teams in the league, but also plays offensive, we expect to have goals in both nets, so our prediction is BTTS at 1.64. In general, it is important to note that both teams are looking for a mandatory victory, as draw does not suit them, but BTTS have been seen in 7 of the last 9 games between them.
- Aston Villa has scored a goal in every home game in Championship
- Sheffield have scored in 12 of 15 away games this the season
