10/03/2018 Kick Off:  5:30 pm Villa Park V Predicted Score:1 - 1

Away Wolverhampton Wanderers

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Goals from the left. Between them left-sided centre-back Willy Boly and left midfielder Barry Douglas have seven goals, and playing in front of them, Diogo Jota has 12. Its down the left flank that Wolves are most dangerous, especially given Hutton’s absence for Villa. Douglas is 10/1 to score anytime.

2 We fancy:

Less than 1.5 goals scored at 2/1. Neither side will want to lose so a controlled, low-scoring game is likely.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Ruben Neves to score first at 16/1. The Portuguese midfielder has missed Wolves’ last two games and will be keen to make an impact.

Aston Villa's Last Six:

Won: 4 Drawn: 1 Lost: 1

Axel Tuanzebe looks set to return for Villa this weekend, having missed the last few weeks with an ankle injury. Unfortunately for Steve Bruce’s side, Alan Hutton and Andre Green are not quite at that point yet, although are estimated to return by the end of the month. Longer-term absences include Jonathan Kodjia, Jed Steer and Jordan Lyden, whilst the extent of Glen Wheelen’s injury is unknown.

Wolverhampton Wanderers' Last Six:

Won: 3 Drawn: 2 Lost: 1

Nuno Santo has no new injury concerns, and will welcome back Ruben Neves, the Portugese star having served the second of his two match ban mid-week against Leeds.

Aston Villa vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

A win at Villa Park would be a prize scalp for promotion-chasing Wolves

Wolves look back to their best, following a dip poor run of results in February, and they’ll need to be with Aston Villa in good form. The Villains haven’t lost at home since November and will pose a real threat to Wanderers title chances.

Aston Villa are 11/5 to win, and with Fulham breathing down their neck, will be pushing for a win against the league leaders. Bruce has cured his side of their shyness in front of goal, and the midlands side scored seven goals in their last two games.

Wolves are 13/10 to win, and are in sore need of the three points as well. Two draws and a defeat to Fulham means that the title race is very much still on, and if they fail to win this weekend, Cardiff have the opportunity to close the gap further. The Wanderers did impress in their defeat of Leeds on Wednesday, and will hope to build on it against Villa.

A draw is 2/1, and would be a decent result for both sides. With two of the best defences in the league, a scoreless draw is a real possibility.

Albert Adomah is 2/1 to score anytime and has been in scintillating form as of late. The winger has two goals and three assists in his last three games which has brought his total to 13 goals this season.

Diogo Jota is 5/2 to score against Villa despite failing to hit the back of the net in his last five games. The Portuguese winger did nab an assist against Leeds and looked to be back at his threatening best.

Predicted Score: Aston Villa 1 - 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers
