Zrinjski vs Aston Villa: Top Free Betting Tips
Zrinjski had their moments and the win over AZ Alkmaar with 4-3 will forever be remembered. Unfortunately, this season in Europe is done for them. Aston Villa have already qualified ahead, which makes this match far less important than the Legia vs AZ fixture in the same group.
Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
This is an interesting fixture for us because we do not expect Villa to come out with their regular top players. Even a mixed line up should be enough to win this but it also means that we can potentially expect them to concede in this match. Zrinjski have already proven that they can score at home against the better sides and they scored 5 goals total to Legia and AZ. We expect an over here with goals on both ends.
Match Result Prediction: Aston Villa to Win
While Villa do not need the win at all costs, we expect the team to earn the three points here. Their recent results have been absolutely unbelievable. Over the last three weeks, they beat Tottenham, Man City, and Arsenal, one after the other, conceding a single goal. Villa are having their best season in ages and we do not think that they will underestimate even a low-profile match like this one.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Aston Villa
As mentioned above, we do not expect to see all regular starters in this match for Aston Villa. Therefore, we do not expect the same performance like the 4-1 win on the road against AZ Alkmaar, for example. Moreover, Zrinjski have been quite impressive at home in the Europa Conference League. When we compare the Zrinjski vs Aston Villa line ups, we think that the visitors have a massive advantage on paper.
How Far Will Aston Villa Fans Travel To Zrinjski?
Aston Villa have some of the most dedicated fans in England and it is guaranteed that there will be a lot who travel to Bosnia.

Reaching the final destination would also take several flights and the minimal price we could find for flight tickets right now is 750 pounds.
Zrinjski vs Aston Villa: Tickets
Tickets for this fixture appear to have been sold out already as we couldn't find an active marketplace on either side. This is not surprising knowing that the venue is small and it will also be the last match of Mostar in Europe for this campaign.
