Aston Villa have lost only two of their last ten matches to Manchester City at home. Six of the last eight head-to-head matches in the first half have ended in a draw. Manchester City have kept a clean sheet in five of their last seven official away games.Bet Now!
In terms of the tournament, Aston Villa has practically no claim to anything. The team scored 44 points. It is already far from the first four and the distance is now six points to the sixth and seventh places, which could potentially become European Cup.
Villane play mostly unsuccessfully at home against serious opponents. Thus, in the last six matches in the home arena, Aston Villa has already lost to West Ham (1:3), Leicester (1:2) and Tottenham (0:2). In addition to Fulham, Dean Smith's side defeated volatile Arsenal (1:0) and ended in a draw with Wolverhampton (0:0) during that period. In a total of 14 home games in the current championship, Aston Villa have won six at home, lost the same number and drew two.
Due to injuries, two key midfielders will not play in the match: Jack Grealish and Mahmoud Trezeguet, as well as striker Wesley. Questionable is the presence of Morgan Sanson.
Over the next two weeks, the "townspeople" have a number of important matches. Besides, the schedule is quite tight, namely they have the semifinal match in the Champions League with PSG, as well as the game in the League Cup final with Tottenham. However, one should not expect that Guardiola's men will start playing carelessly in the Premier League, where, although they have a solid handicap in front of their rivals, they have not yet secured the championship title.
In the championship standings Manchester City are now in first place, being eight points ahead of their closest rival, Manchester United.
In terms of the away game, the Citizens are currently the best club in the current championship. The Mancunians have won away in the last nine matches in a row and in the previous three they have not even conceded. In general, out of 15 away matches of the championship, Manchester City won eleven, losing only once.
Midfielder Kevin De Bruyne and striker Sergio Aguero will not play in the next match due to injuries.
Our prediction is a victory for Manchester City with a handicap (-1) ball for 1.66.
It is unlikely that we should expect defeat here. Manchester City have a difficult schedule and will play to the best of their ability. Lately, the team has not conceded so often on the road.
Second bet is for both will score: no for 1.80.
Place a bet on the line of Betway with odds of 1.66.
