Aston Villa vs Leicester: Top Free Betting Tips

We expect a very difficult game here and both teams have their chances. Here are our predictions.

Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes

We expect an incredible match between two teams that need the three points. Leicester have been having problems lately and failed to score in several games. They should be able to score against Villa's bad defense. Moreover, we have some history between the two teams and all five most recent games between them ended with both teams scoring at least one goal.

Match Result Prediction: Aston Villa to Win

We expect Aston Villa to win this game even though the teams are more or less equal in strength and will both have their chances. Especially if we reach a 1:1 point in the game, both sides will get their chances. But Aston Villa seem to be in better shape right now and we think that it will be a narrow win.

Correct Score Prediction: 2:1 to Aston Villa

We expect a win with a minimal difference for either side and we prefer to give our pick to Villa, who have a more balanced squad and are rebuilding their team.This is the perfect opportunity for them to continue their winning streak.

Aston Villa vs Leicester: Form, Recent Games, and News

Aston Villa Preview

Aston Villa did not have a good start this year and until recently, they were in danger of relegation. Before the World Cup started, Villa managed to get 3 wins in four games and climb to the middle of the table. There is not much to expect from the team this season and the main goal is to remain in the elite. Their defense is not the worst but their attack remains one of the weakest. Right now, they seem to be in shape and we can maybe expect some good results before another decline begins.

Leicester Preview

Leicester had the worst possible start to a campaign but after ten rounds, they would a way out of the hole and are now one of the teams in the best form. Or at least, they were before the World Cup started. They had four wins in the last five games and generally, the team looked a lot stronger. They did not concede a goal in the majority of their games but right now, it is quite the opposite. They have not scored in the majority of the recent games and they lost four out of five too.

Players to Watch

Aston Villa – Danny Ings & Ollie Watkins

Danny Ings has been a force to be reckoned with this season and already has 7 goals on his tally within 22 appearances in the Premier League. He is an absolute gem because he is never injured. Ollie Watkins has been Villa's most valuable player since he joined a while ago. The player has contributed to the whooping 40 goals in the Premier League with his 29 goals and 11 assists. Look out for his performance too.

Leicester City – Harvey Barnes

Leicester have had issues scoring goals this season and apart from a short period of several weeks, we have seen terrible performances. Nevertheless, there is no better time to bet on Harvey Barnes than now. The striker has 7 goals in 23 PL matches and with the absense of James Maddison, who is the second top goalscorer, Barnes will have to do more work.
