Sunderland vs. Aston Villa Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

Sunderland will be looking to trade places with Aston Villa on the league table when it hosts Villa at the Stadium of Light this weekend.

Sunderland vs. Aston Villa Trends Analysis

Aston Villa has had an edge of Sunderland in recent seasons, winning five of their last ten matches while Sunderland has taken three wins and two matches have produced draws. Notably, three of Aston Villa’s wins were achieved at the Stadium of Light.

Villa’s last trip to Sunderland produced a 1-0 win for the home team.

Sunderland has been suffering from inconsistent form this season, but got a valuable win against Bolton last weekend. That result leaves the club with two wins, two losses and a draw from its last five matches – enough to haul it clear of the relegation zone and within striking range of the top ten.

Sunderland has impressed up front, scoring 10 goals in its last five matches. Defence needs to do some work, however, with 6 goals conceded in the same period of time.

Aston Villa’s been struggling, however, with three defeats, a win and a draw to show for its efforts in recent weeks.

Villa has scored 5 goals in its past five matches. This relatively low striking rate has been highlighted by defensive failures, with 9 goals passing the Villa defence in five games.

Sunderland vs. Aston Villa Betting Tips

While Aston Villa has league position on Sunderland, it looks like Sunderland should take this match.

The combination of strong Sunderland attack with a thin Aston Villa defence should produce the win for the home team in this match.

Our Sunderland vs. Aston Villa betting tip is therefore to go with a straight back bet on Sunderland to win this match at the top odds you can find.
