Aston Villa vs Burton Albion Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in opposite halves of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Aston Villa continued their recent good form with a 1-0 victory away to promotion rivals Sheffield United on Tuesday evening. The game seemed to be headed for a draw until Robert Snodgrass stepped up to net a 90th minute winner.

Burton suffered their third straight defeat in midweek as they lost to relegation rivals Reading 3-1. A Lucas Akins penalty brought them level on the 51st minute but they then proceeded to ship two goals in the next 17 minutes to see the game go beyond them.

The reverse fixture came at the end of September at the Pirelli Stadium and Villa coasted to a 4-0 victory that day. Keinan Davis, Albert Adomah, Robert Snodgrass and Joshua Onamah all converted one goal each in a team performance.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Aston Villa to win this game is an obvious call given they have won five straight while Burton have lost three in a row. The price though is a little short so try look to get a little more value by taking the home side to win to nil as they have done in four of their last five.

In their last four home matches in all competitions Villa have scored seven times and they seem capable of netting early here so take them to get their first goal before 39:00.

Aston Villa Preview

A run of five straight victories has moved Aston Villa into third and just one behind Derby in the race for automatic promotion. At the transfer deadline, they brought in Lewis Grabban on loan to bolster their strike force.

At Villa Park, it is six league matches without defeat with four of these ending in them taking all three points. They have the joint-fourth best defensive home record and the third best home defensive figures.

Aston Villa are in good form at both ends of the pitch having netted 11 goals in their last five while conceding just once. Scott Hogan has four in his last four Championship appearances while Robert Snodgrass has four in his last five.

Aston Villa Team News

Chris Samba (hamstring), Gabby Agbonlahor and Jordan Lyden (both ankle) are doubts while Jonathan Kodjia (also ankle) and Jed Steer (dislocated shoulder) are long-term absentees.

Burton Albion Preview

A run of three straight defeats means that Albion are bottom of the table and with sides around them starting to pick up points they need to get a run together. During the transfer window, they brought in Jacob Davenport on loan from Man City and Darren Bent on a similar deal from Derby.

Away from the Pirelli Stadium, they have been much stronger picking up 16 of the 24 points they have claimed this season. Only Birmingham (8) have scored a lower number of goals than the Brewers (9) on the road.

Defensive issues have been a concern for Burton this campaign who have shipped 55 goals five more than any other side in the Championship. Four of their last five and six of their last seven have gone over 2.5 goals.

Burton Albion Team News

Willie Miller (knee) is a long-term absentee for the Brewers.
