The Saints have only two victories and five peaceful outcomes, which brought 11 points. However, at the start of the tournament, a series of several victories can radically change the situation.
Contrary to Southampton, Aston Villa had good fights at the start of the tournament. However, they lost concentration and ended up only in the 15th position, right behind the Saints. Now, the Lions have three successful fights and one peaceful outcome, which have brought 10 points. The team’s performance indicators look pretty good for Aston Villa – the team scored 14 times while conceding almost two goals per game.
In our opinion, this is the typical game with three outcomes. The teams occupy a place in the relegation zone, which is unlikely to please fans and can add to the players’ desire to go forward and get a more comfortable tournament position. In three of the last five head-to-head matches, the opponents scored at least four goals, and today we are waiting for attacking football, which will bring a productive result.
Our prediction – total over 2.5 goals
Fr rivals, any points earned are worth their weight in gold and this meeting will not be an exception. The tournament position will likely oblige the opponents to play with maximum dedication, while the draw can also please both sides. The desire to earn at least something can push them to play a no-risk football in the second half, leading to the draw after the final whistle.
