Aston Villa and Leicester City face off on Sunday in an English Premier League showdown at Villa Park. When these two teams faced off in February it was Leicester City that won 2-1. This is a key game for both teams.
Aston Villa currently sits in 14th place in the standings having picked up 16 points. Aston Villa has been really inconsistent this season and in the last game against Manchester City they were defeated 2-1.

Leicester City is the better team, and they are going to find offensive success in this game. I do think Aston Villa will find a goal but Leicester City’s offense is going to be too much. Back Leicester City on the money line.
