Aston Villa and Brentford face off on Sunday in an English Premier League showdown at Villa Park. On January 2nd it was Brentford that secured the 2-1 victory.
Aston Villa currently sits in 17th place having picked up nine points. Aston Villa has lost two games in a row and during the two games, they have scored only zero goals. Against Fulham in the last game, Newcastle gave up three goals. Aston Villa had six shots on target, but only 36 percent of the possession. Douglas Luiz picked up a red card in the 62nd minute, and he won’t be able to go in this game. Diego Carlos, Boubacar Kamara, Lucas Digne, and Ludwig Augustinsson are all dealing with injuries and won’t be able to go in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Brentford who sits in 10th place in the standings having picked up 14 points. Brentford has picked up four points over his last two games. In the last game against Chelsea, the two teams played to a 0-0 draw. Brentford had 33 percent of the possession and five shots on target. Pontus Jansson, Thomas Strakosha, Aaron Hickey, and Christian Norgaard are all dealing with injuries and won’t be able to go in this game for Aston Villa.
This game is a real toss up in who will win, but I expect both defenses are going to be strong. Aston Villa has failed to score in each of the last two games, and they are going to struggle to score again in this game. Brentford won’t score more than a goal, and this game is going to stay under the total.
