Aston Villa VS West Bromwich

Preview

Aston Villa and West Bromwich face off at Villa Park on this match of the 28th round of the Premier League.

Villa comes into this game with a dark record, on their last 6 matches only 1 win against the modest Leicester at home 2-1. They are now the penultimate placed team on the league with only 22 points.

On the other side, the visitors have not lost for 6 straight games having only lost once on their last 11 matches. The great responsible of this great sequence is WBA’s strong defensive form with only 2 conceded goals on their last 5 matches. There are currently the 13th placed team with 30 points.

The head-to-head history between the teams shows total balance with 4 draws and a win for each side. 

Analysis of Aston Villa

The home team has some important casualties for today’s match. Cissokho, Richardson, Baker and Kozák will not play, making it even harder to get a positive result on this outing.

Tim Sherwood will probably adopt his usual 4-3-3 system with Agbonlahor, Benteke and Sinclair up front gaining some very heavy finishing power.

On this match we will see an Aston Villa squad decided to improve, however, seeing the quality of their opposing side it will be very hard and they will have to be at the top of their form in order to succeed.


Confirmed Lineup: B. Guzan, J. Okore, M. Lowton, C. Clark, A. Hutton, T. Cleverley, C. N'Zogbia, A. Westwood, F. Delph, C. Benteke, G. Agbonlahor.
Coach: T. Sherwood.

Analysis of West Bromwich Albion

The visitors will probably utilize a 4-4-2 system with the objective of filling up the midfield preventing Aston Villa from using their dangerous transitions from the flank to the centre.

The English striker Berahino already has 11 goals this season. The U21 England player is very fast and a very good finisher. By his side will be Ideye covering for the injured Anichebe.

Their back line is very experienced with McAuley and Lescott at the centre and Dawson at the right side offering a lot of depth on the wing.

Also on the wings, the dynamos are Gardner and Morrison, who have the task of feeding the target man up front.


Confirmed Lineup: B. Foster, G. McAuley, C. Dawson, J. Lescott, J. Morrison, C. Brunt, C. Gardner, C. Yacob, D. Fletcher, B. Ideye, S. Berahino.
Coach: T. Pulis.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match will be Aston Villa not winning. Even playing at home and trying to start a fresh positive cycle, the hosts have clearly less arguments than the visitors, who have been having excellent results even when playing away.
