Aston Villa and Sheffield United face off in an English Premier League showdown on Monday at Vila Park in Birmingham, England.
At points last season it looked like Aston Villa would be relegated but they were able to secure a spot back in the top flight and they hope to start off their season on the right foot. In a friendly before the start of the season Aston Villa faced off with Manchester United and in that game it was a 16th minute goal by Ollie Watkins that ended up being the difference. The defense was strong the rest of the game and that led to a victory. Aston Villa did play a game earlier this week against Burton in the EFL Cup second round and in that one they did what is expected when they face a team that is worse. They scored a goal in the 39th minute and added another goal in the 88th minute and another goal in stoppage time and that was enough to win their game.
On the other side of this matchup is Sheffield United who got off to a slow start against the Wolves last Monday. United really looked like they weren’t ready to play early in the game and that led to a couple of goals being given up in the first six minutes. The rest of the game Sheffield actually did find success with the possession, but they couldn’t find any goals to get into the back of the net and that led to the loss. During the midweek, Sheffield played against Burley and their offense could only manage one goal in the EFL Cup. The game went to penalty kicks and they ended up losing the game. In this game Sheffield needs to find a way to get their offense going.
Sheffield United isn’t a strong offensive team and that is going to continue in this game. Look for both teams to have few shots on goal and this is going to be a low scoring game. Back the under to cash with ease in this game.
