Aston Villa vs Man City Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Aston Villa vs Man City is always a massive fixture but it will be even more competitive now that Villa are in good form. Here are our predictions.

Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes

While Man City usually beat Villa like they beat most of the other teams, Villa always score against them. It happened in all five most recent h2h games, no matter the location. We expect it here too. The teams have identical stats right now. Both sides have one defeat in the last ten fixtures in all competitions and won most of their other games. Villa have really been extremely impressive, especially at home. There is no way that they will not score at least one goal here, possibly more.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

While you can always bet on the logical thing – Man City to win, we think that this is a bit of a gamble in this particular case. Aston Villa are absolutely unbelievable at home. They played 11 matches at home since the start of the season and won 10 out of 11. Their attack is simply outstanding. No team has scored more goals at home than Villa – 23 in 6 games. And on the other side, we have the best team in the world – Manchester City. It is far easier to bet on an over here than expect a winner.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-2 Draw

This is a huge gamble and you already know why. Man City are the top team in the league and in the world as a whole. But they have already lost points on three occasions this season on the road. Aston Villa, in turn, have six wins in six fixtures in the Premier League, with a goal difference of 23:5. No other team has that and while City usually beat them by a goal, we think that Villa will not have a better chance to win points against this rival. When we compare the Aston Villa vs Man City line ups, however, we definitely think that the visitors have the advantage.

Aston Villa's Predicted Line-up vs Man City

Aston Villa have been fortunate to not have many injuries this season and this has helped them a lot with rotations and adapting to the additional ECL fixtures each month. They have listed three players as missing ahead of this fixture – Buendia, Mings, and Traore. Villa may not be used to this tight schedule of games but we still expect them to come out with their best squad against the best team in the world. Here is our predicted line-up:

Martinez – Digne, Torres, Cash, Konsa – McGinn, Kamara, Douglas, Carlos – Watkins, Diaby

Man City's Predicted Line-up vs Aston Villa

Man City are clearly the best team in the world but the shocking fact is that they lost six points in the last three Premier League games. They failed to beat Tottenham, Liverpool, and Chelsea – three of their biggest rivals. There is no doubt that they will show up with the best possible squad after such a bad period. De Bruyne remains injured but City will also be without Rodri and Grealish in this fixture. Here is our predicted line-up:

Ederson – Dias, Ake, Walker – Akanji, Kovacic – Doku, Silva, Alvarez, Foden – Haaland
