Ipswich Town vs Aston Villa Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features a home side seeking their first win of the season against a road team who have won both. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Ipswich were eliminated from the League Cup in midweek as they went lost to Exeter on penalties after drawing 1-1 in regular time. In the league, they were on course for a second successive draw but a 90th minute Rotherham goal saw them return home pointless. Aston Villa were also in League Cup action Tuesday night and they needed a Conor Hourihane goal to squeeze past Yeovil. They won their previous league fixture beating Wigan 3-2 in a closely fought battle. The two meetings between these sides last season were both won by Aston Villa who won 4-0 at Portman Road and 2-0 at Villa Park. Albert Adomah grabbed a brace in one of these fixtures but is likely to start on the bench here.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Aston Villa are the side I like most to win the game but given that they were around the same price last week and they were at home then I cannot bring myself to back them at these odds. Instead, I will look to the goalscorer markets and I like the chances of two players who impressed on debut last weekend. Jon Nolan for Ipswich and John McGinn for Aston Villa both got among the shots and should soon get among the goals.

Ipswich Town Preview

The Tractor Boys have won just two of their last 13 Championship fixtures when looking at the end of last season and the start of this one. Five of their last six in the league have gone over 2.5 goals. At Portman Road, they are without a win in three and have won just one of their last ten with the last two ending in a draw. Three of the last five the Suffolk outfit have played at their own ground have ended 2-2. Ipswich have failed to net in any of their last three home matches against their opponents Aston Villa. Jon Nolan registered four shots on goal in his debut for Town against Rotherham last weekend.

Ipswich Town Team News

They have no registered injuries or suspensions ahead of this fixture.

Aston Villa Preview

Villa have won both games this season and five of the last seven when just looking at the regular season. Both fixtures this season have seen both teams net and have gone over 2.5 goals. Away from Villa Park, they have won both games this season and four of their last six in all competitions. Three of their four road goals netted this campaign have come in the final 20 minutes. John McGinn impressed on his debut last weekend and the midfielder registered four shots against Wigan without netting. Two of the three goals that Aston Villa have conceded this season have come in the opening 45 minutes.

Aston Villa Team News

Callum O’Hare (knee), Keinan Davis, Scott Hogan (both groin) and Jordan Lyden (unknown) are all doubts.
