Aston Villa vs Leeds – Championship: The chances are remote, but it is still possible.
Aston Villa is only 5 points away from 2nd place, which grants direct promotion to the Premier League.
With 5 matches to go until the end of the regular season, it is still possible to believe. To do so, Aston Villa needs to be perfect on this final stretch.
The fact that they have an opponent that isn’t fighting for anything anymore ahead of them can definitely be an advantage for them to explore.
As an extra motivating aspect, they have the great victory over the former 2nd place Cardiff, by the minimum margin on the last round.
The team has been playing with a lot of defensive focus. Aston Villa hasn’t conceded goals in 3 of their last 4 matches. They have been very dominant at home and they are still believing, so they will push for more today.
The manager Steve Bruce is still without Alan Hutton and Andre Green, who are both injured.
An unfortunate campaign. I believed Leeds could have done more on this edition of the Championship.
However, struggling with a lot of injuries on their roster throughout the whole season, having trouble to find the best fit, Leeds lost the train.
The final rounds should only serve for them to finish in a worthy position.
ON their current moment of form, their difficulties are visible.
The team only managed to win once on their last 6 matches, currently being winless for 3 matches.
The team actually manages to do well on the attack, but the lack of resistance on defence stops them from being more competitive. As visitors, their difficulties are increased with the lack of answers.
The manager Paul Heckingbottom has a high number of injuries on their roster. Gaetano Berardi won’t play because he is suspended while Pontus Jansson, due to a hit on the last match, is still doubtful for today.
Aston Villa vs Leeds – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Of course, Villa can’t lower the rhythm here. The visiting side will play their game, being aggressive and leaving a lot of spaces…
But if they are enjoying themselves, things can get tricky. Still dreaming of high achievements, coming from a great win on the last round,
if they maintain their hunger and play with the intensity demanded, they deserve to be favourites for this duel.
