Aston Villa vs Burton – Championship: Aston Villa failed miserable on achieving their objective of fighting for promotion last season.
The roster seemed somewhat unbalanced and the results never appeared consistently.
This year, they didn’t get off to a better start, but the team, as the league advances, has been doing better and better and they currently sit in 3rd place of the Championship,
only 1 point away from the 2nd place that would ensure them direct access to the Premier League, which is the place that Derby currently occupies.
Aston Villa is coming off an impressive streak of 5 consecutive wins that have catapulted the team to these positions.
Aston Villa is coming off a 1-0 victory over Sheffield United away from home and their goal was scored already in injury time. This is definitely the best streak of the team this season, and they now seem to have the momentum to fight for promotion.
Burton is a team that usually fights to avoid relegation and this year their situation is a bit trickier than in previous years, because they occupy the last place of this competition, although they are only 2 points away from safety.
Burton is coming off 3 consecutive losses that have put the team not only on the relegation zone but also in the last place of this Championship.
On those losses, the lack of quality on the defensive process of this team was evident, since they have conceded 12 goals in only 3 matches, which is a lot for a Championship team that intends to make sure they avoid relegation from this league.
Still, this team has the interesting characteristic of gaining more points away from home than at home.
Aston Villa vs Burton – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Aston Villa has a perfect opportunity to get the 3 points here. The team is on a great moment of form, coming off their best streak of results of the season and this is the time to assert their presence on this fight and show that they want to ensure promotion with at least the 2nd place that gives them direct access to the Premier League.
After winning in Sheffield on the last round, Aston Villa have reinforced their position in this fight and that victory was very celebrated and had a lot of importance for this team.
I believe that now, playing at home, and on the reception to the team who is in last place, they will get another win.
Burton has been having some defensive problems and on this trip to Birmingham, I believe the won’t get points again, even because Aston Villa is a team that has quality on the attacking sector. Aston Villa wins this match.
