Aston Villa and Leeds United face off on Friday in Premier League soccer action at Villa Park in Aston, Birmingham, England.
After almost being relegated last season, Aston Villa is playing some quite impressive soccer right now and they currently sit in second place inside the Premier League. Aston Villa has won all four games this season including a game against Liverpool that they won 7-2. In that game, Aston Villa was led by Ollie Watkins who put three goals into the back of the net in the first half of the game. In the last game against Leicester City it was a very even game where they had 49 percent of the possession but in stoppage time it was Ross Barkley who put the winning goal in the back of the net. If Aston Villa has dreams of being in the top four when the season ends, this is a game they need to get three points in, so they need to be aggressive early. If they can keep possession around 60 percent they should have a great chance to come away with the win.
On the other side of this matchup is Leeds United who currently sit in 10th place in the standings with seven points. The last few games for Leeds United have all been low scoring and they have gone 1-1-1. Three games ago they won 1-0, two games ago, they played to a 1-1 draw, and in the last game they lost to the Wolves 1-0. Even though they only played to a draw a few games ago, it was uite impressive considering that it was Manchester City on the other side of the pitch. In the last game against the Wolves they had 68 percent of the possession, but they could only get two shots on target, and zero of those went into the back of the net.
Leeds United has been involved in lower scoring games and that will be the case again in this one. Look for Leeds United to make this game ugly and their defense is going to lockdown. It might not be enough to win the game, but this game will stay under 2.5 goals.
