Aston Villa and Wolverhampton are clashing at Villa Park in round 27 in the English Premier League.
Aston Villa keeps playing well, but they are not as consistent as they were at the start of the season, and that was expected. Aston Villa has won only 2 of their last 5 games, but they still have a chance to get to the Europa League spot. Aston Villa is now in 9th place with 39 points, 38 scored goals, and 27 conceded goals so far this season. in their last 5 EPL games, Aston Villa has scored only 3 goals while also conceding 3 goals. Wesley and Cash are injured, while Hause and Grealish are still questionable, but if able, you can bet Grealish will be in the lineup. Watkins has scored 10 goals for Aston Villa so far this season, while Grealish added 6 goals and 10 assists. Aston Villa was playing against Sheffield on the road last week, and they were the dominant team with an impressive 72% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a decent 84% of the correct passes. Despite their dominance, and the extra players on the field for the last 30 minutes, Aston Villa couldn’t score a goal, and they ended up losing this game 1-0. Aston Villa can still get to the Europa League spot, but I don’t think they will because they don’t have quality on the bench, and that is very much needed in a season this long.
Wolves have been showing some signs of life lately, but they are winless in their last 2 games in the EPL. During these two games, Wolverhampton has scored 2 goals while conceding 5 goals. In their last game, Wolverhampton has had a tough opponent, Manchester City, and they have had only 28% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 2 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 83% of the correct passes. Wolverhampton was able to score a goal from their one shot on goal, but they still ended up losing 4-1 to the best team in the league. Wolverhampton is struggling offensive because their best striker, Jimenez, has been injured for a while, and he still is. Alongside Jimenez, Podence and Marcal are also injured. Neves and Neto have each scored 5 goals for Wolverhampton, while Jimenez added 4 goals. Neto has added 5 assists. Wolves have scored only 28 goals in 27 games so far this season while conceding 37 goals, and Wolverhampton is now in 12th place. Wolverhampton was never an overly offensive team, but these 28 scored goals are just not enough to accomplish anything notable in this league.
Wolverhampton has beaten Aston Villa only twice on the road, and the trends are on Aston Villa’s side in this matchup. Neither of the teams is confident on the defensive end, and both teams could definitely score a goal here. I’m gonna give this a shot at the over.
