Premier League will continue after the international break. The international break provides a chance for teams to regenerate their strengths but as you know this is not the case for Premier League because almost all the Premier League players play for their countries as well. The match I am going to analyze will be played between the 6th placed Aston Villa and the 16th placed Brighton. Let’s start!
Having won five times and lost twice, Aston Villa had a fairly good start to the new season. They are trailing the league leaders Leicester only by 3 points but don’t forget that Villa has played 1 game less. This will be a good opportunity to close the gap not to mention that Leicester will be hosted by none other than Liverpool in this round. Aston Villa made the headlines twice by getting blowout victories against the powerhouses of this league. In the 3rd round, they defeated Liverpool 7-2 and gave the Reds a day they will not want to remember. Before the international break, they were hosted by Arsenal, whom they defeated with 3 goals to nil. Of course, they had their downfalls as well. We saw them concede 7 goals in the two defeats they got against Leeds and Southampton.
Brighton, on the other hand, is one of the weakest teams of this campaign. They finished the 19/20 season in 15th place. Of course, this is not a parameter you would trust in because Aston Villa did even have a worse record in the previous season, and now look at where they are. However, unlike Aston Villa, Brighton failed to sign players that would take this team a step further. Brighton has won only once so far. They had 3 draws and 4 losses. They are now winless in their last 6 fixtures.
The H2H records show that Aston Villa has not lost against Brighton in the last 6 occasions these two met each other. Aston Villa came out on top in 3 of these and the other meetings ended in draws. It is also crucial to note that both teams scored in all of these encounters. While it would be logical to bet on both teams to score, I believe there is a higher value on the home side. I want to take advantage of these high odds by placing my bet with an -0.25 Asian Handicap. In case of a draw, half of your stake will be refunded.
