Manchester City vs. Aston Villa Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

Manchester City has a potentially golden opportunity to close in on Manchester United in the Premier League standings this weekend when it hosts Aston Villa at the City of Manchester Stadium.

Manchester City vs. Aston Villa Trends Analysis

Manchester City will fancy its chances of taking full points from this fixture having beaten Villa in five of their last ten clashes. Villa has taken two wins during this period – with only one of these achieved away – while two games have produced draws.

Villa’s last trip to Manchester City produced a 3-0 win for the hosts.

Man City comes into this fixture off the back of three wins, a loss and a draw. The club’s disappointing loss to Bayern Munich shouldn’t overshadow City’s consistent form this season, which has seen the club keep a clean scoresheet in its last three matches.

While City has conceded a respectable four goals in its last five matches, it has been attack that has impressed, with the club putting away 10 goals for an average of 2 per match.

While Aston Villa is currently placed 7th on the league standings, the club’s form hasn’t been quite as impressive as that of its opponent, with Villa taking three draws, one win and one loss from its last five matches.

Villa is lacking spark up front with 6 goals scored in five games. Defence has been nothing to write home about either, with 6 goals conceded in the same period.

Manchester City vs. Aston Villa Betting Tips

Both head-to-head stats and recent form suggest that City should take this match, with a draw most likely the worst outcome for the home side.

There will be more than enough motivation for City to win this, given that they could close in on United if the Red Devils stumble against Liverpool. Expect them to ruthless and to go for all-out attack against Villa.

our Manchester City vs. Aston Villa betting tip is to take the back bet on over 2.75 goals being scored in the match at the best odds you can find.
