Aston Villa vs Bolton Wanderers Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15.00) game features two sides at opposite ends of the Championship form table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Aston Villa continued their strong recent run with a comfortable 4-0 victory at Burton which is impressive considering the Brewers had shipped just one goal in the three prior to that. Albert Adomah, Keinan Davies, Robert Snodgrass and Josh Onomah all netted one each to help them take all three points. Bolton were poor in their 2-0 loss to Bristol City with the expected goal data having them as low as 0.19 goals per game. They also played half the game without Filipe Morais as the Portuguese midfielder was sent-off. The last time this duo met at Villa Park came back in April 2012 in the Premier League which Bolton won 2-1. For those who like trends betting the away side has won each of the last three and lost just one of the last six head-to-heads.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Villa win this game that much is obvious but the prices offer no value so we need to find a way to enhance that. Villa on the Asian Handicap is one angle you could approach considering the hammering they handed Burton.  I would suggest the best option though is the half-time/full-time market as 55% of their goals have come in the opening 45 minutes while Bolton have shipped a league-high 12 in this period. Albert Adomah is the hot hand currently and I don’t think Wanderers can live with his pace and directness and he looks a sensible play in the anytime goalscorer market.

Aston Villa Preview

12 points from their last six games (three wins, three draws) has seen Villa shoot up the Championship table. They were in eighth going into this round of fixtures and they now look to look be the promotion contenders that was suggested in the summer by bookmakers. At home, they are unbeaten in five league fixtures though three of these have ended in a draw. The Midlands side have shipped ten goals this season and just four of these have come at Villa Park. Albert Adomah is in great goalscoring form with four goals netted in his last three appearances. Around 55% of their goals have come in the first-half and around 38% in the opening thirty minutes.

Aston Villa Team News

Andre Green (hamstring), Gabby Agbonlahor (groin) and Henri Lansbury (knee) are listed day-to-day while Jack Grealish (hip), Mile Jedinak (groin) and Rushian Hepburn-Murphy (thigh) are long-term absentees.

Bolton Wanderers Preview

The table makes bleak reading for Trotters fans who have seen their side take just two points from their first ten fixtures. A run of seven straight league defeats means that Phil Parkinson has been given the dreaded vote of confidence. On the road, they have lost four though the two points they have taken have come on their travels. They have netted just once in away fixtures this season and in none of their previous four. The Lancashire side have conceded a league high 12 goals in the first-half. 75% of the goals they have netted in this campaign have come in the second-half and none of these in the 15-minute period after the break.

 

Bolton Wanderers Team News

Ben Alnwick (neck), Derik Osede (groin), Josh Vela (ankle), Stephen Darby and Will Buckley (hamstring) are all set to miss out. Filipe Morais will be absent through suspension.
