Rotherham – Aston Villa, Championship Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR ROTHERHAM - ASTON VILLA
Rotherham took a very big victory against Nottingham in the last round. The team is again struggling to survive, as it usually happens during the years, when it came to the Championship. After this positive outcome, their chances are rising, and it should be clear that Rotherham relies almost entirely on their home games to get points, so they will push the Villa and for the guests will not be easy.
The Villans turned Sheffield Wendy in the last round and this is a series of 6 consecutive wins for Aston Villa. That should have led to the big dividends. Aston Villa is back in the top 6, where they finished last year and played Wembley’s final playoffs. For guests, everything is clear – they will continue to play the same way while it works, so the battle here will be very serious.
It is not certain whether the point will be a positive result for Rotherham, but we certainly know that this will not be good at the Villa camp. This means that they will try to get the victory and expect to score a quick goal, as they have done so lately with ease. The Villans, however, did not record many clean sheet away from home this season and proved they can make elementary mistakes, and Rotherham is waiting for it. This team is very clinical at home and takes advantage of similar problems in other teams. Rotherham has no clean sheet home since October. Prediction – BTTS at 1.69.
- Rotherham has not scored a goal as host only in two games since the start of the season in the league
- Villa has not scored a goal in just 4 games in the league
