Manchester City vs Aston Villa Betting

Manchester City is in the driver’s season to win the Premier League, but they still have some work to do. They are tied with Liverpool for the league lead with two matches remaining, but they have a +9 goal differential lead over the Reds, so if City wins out they will win the EPL crown.

While City is the big favorite in this match they did lose to Aston Villa on the road earlier this season 3-2.

In the loss to Aston Villa this season City dominated the time of possession (67% to 33%) and had 14 more shots, but still lost.

City is tied with Liverpool for the most goals in the league and they have conceded the second fewest. Yeah, Aston Villa has a tall order on the road this Wednesday night.

Aston Villa’s offense had really been struggling before scoring three goals in their last match facing Hull City. In their previous seven matches they only scored five goals. One of the main reasons their offense had been struggling is that they lost leading goal scorer Christian Benteke for the season duo to an injury.

The Villans will have to play stellar defense like they did earlier this season at home in the win over City to pull off the big upset.

Man City has a great attack led by goal scoring leader Yaya Touré, Edin Dzeko, who scored two goals in City’s last match, and Sergio Agüero, who also scored in the last match and has come back after missing several matches due to injury. This trio has combined to score 50 goals this season, which is 11 more than the entire Aston Villa squad.

Aston Villa not only beat Manchester City early in the season, but they also have wins over Arsenal and Chelsea.
