Sport Betting Tip: Manchester City - Aston Villa, Premier Leauge
- Title : Sport Betting Tip: Manchester City - Aston Villa, Premier Leauge
Manchester City come into this game on an 8 game win-streak and they unbeaten in their previous 10 games in all competitions (8W, 2D) and they have scored an impressive 21 goals (avg. 2.1 goals per game) in those 10 games. In contrast, Aston Villa come into this game without a win in their last 3 games (1D, 2L) in all competitions although it should be noted that their 1-4 defeat to Liverpool in the FA Cup was with a team comprised of U18 and U21 players. Interestingly, Villa have done better on the road this season than at home having picked up 16 points from 8 away games compared to just 10 points from 7 home games. They also have the best defensive record in the league when away from home having conceded only 5 goals in 8 games (avg. 0.6 goals per game). Manchester City have the best defensive record at home though, conceding just 7 goals from 9 games (avg. 0.8 goals per game). They have lost just 1 of their 9 home games in the league thus far and should take some stopping here.
Man City can join Leicester at top of league with a win at Etihad Stadium as Leicester beat Chelsea last night 2-0 in fact with Man City any sort of win will see the ahead on goal difference at Top so that showed fire them up to be top for 1st time this season and still have a game in hand over Leicester. Aston Villa are down in 11th place on 26pts and have 4 games in hand over Leicester and 2 over Man City but Villa have lost last two games in FA Cup and league , Man City won last five H2H.
Aston Villa have not played a PL match since United at Old Trafford on January 1. However, a match was played in the FA Cup against Liverpool, but then they did not line up with a single player from the A-team. All this because of COVID which should have spread in the club. Which players will participate in this match is thus unclear as you have very little information about specific players, form, who has been away, how bad it has been, etc. Regardless,
I do not think that Aston Villa will come in with the energy that they showed earlier in the season, despite having been "rested" much longer than all the other teams that played a lot of matches. And then you have to face Manchester City as you would have met already in round 1. This is a hanging match. The reason why the match was postponed is because City played out in the Champions League and therefore had an extra week to recover before the new season.
The same applied to everyone who was out in Europe. City then. A team that has been brilliant lately. The offensive may not be the same as you do not inject goals. Could be because Pep has changed a bit in his way of playing + that you do not really have a striker who scores goals, for example Aguero who has always been a safe card. But a lot of injuries to the Argentine, very many missed matches and Aguero has simply had a very tough season. Still, City have managed to turn around the less good form they had, including many other teams.
Nowadays, it is the defensive that does the job and keeps zero after zero. John Stones has come in and done a brilliant job with Dias. More focus backwards for Pep now than before, without a doubt. But that's enough and City line up wins + zeros. I believe in a comfortable City victory. Even if the attack has not been the same and that you sometimes have problems killing a match by making, for example, 2-0. Most recently against CP at home, they succeeded at least, 3-0 ended that match. As I said, do not believe in anything strong Aston Villa here even if the club had a cruel season. It will probably take a lot to stop City's fine form.
