Villa Park will stage a thrilling encounter of Aston Villa vs Burnley on 30th December 2023. This will be an interesting game, so here are our free predictions for the English Premier League clash.

Match result prediction – Aston Villa to win

Aston Villa is in a dreamland right now as they sit 3rd overall after 19 games. They are just three points shy of the top spot, currently occupied by Liverpool. While Villa is disadvantaged by goal advantage, which means they must win by a huge margin to top the table, this is a chance to remain in the top three with more than half of the season done.

We expect Unai Emery's men to get back on track after a disappointing 3-2 defeat a few days ago at Old Trafford.  Burnely are second last on the log and ranked 14th on the road after 9 trips while Villa are currently the best home team.  The fact that Aston Villa have not lost at home so far after 9 assignments at Villa Park, 26 scored and only 6 goals leaked in the home games is why they are a high winning prospect here. The  Odds of 1.43 give Villa at least 69.93% implied winning probability here, so we think they will do it.

Total match goals – Under 2.5 goals

In the second Aston Villa vs Burnley prediction, we have settled on fewer than 3 goals, which means under 2.5 goals is our tip for this EPL clash. The probability of this game ending with at most two goals is 40.82% with odds of 2.45. While three of the last four had at least four goals, we think Burnley will want to end the year with some hope even if they lose, so expect fewer than 3 goals here.

Correct score prediction – 2-0 to Aston Villa

The final betting prediction for Aston Villa vs Burnley is a 2-0 home victory.  This should be an easy game for Villa. They have been exceptional and ending the year with a home game against the struggling Burnley side should be three points on the platter for Unai Emery's men. We are tipping a 2-0 home win on 30th December 2023.

Is Player Tyrone Mings fit?

Mings has been out of action since August 12th when they clashed with Newcastle, a game that Villa lost 5-1 away from home. The Villa player is expected to return late in the season, probably in April but we expect the hosts to continue their good run even without other good players like Tielemans.
