Our Prediction:

Aston Villa will win

Aston Villa – Wolves Match Prediction | 31-10-2019 15:45

The Loons have been scoring goals for fun in the Major League Soccer and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against the newly-promoted Premier League side. All eyes will be on Allianz Field when Minnesota United and Aston Villa face each other in a pre-season friendly. The MLS side are eager to prove their worth in the clash against the famous English club and seeing that the Villans have yet to kick-off the pre-season, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.

Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Wolverhampton set up a meeting with Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup last 16 by beating Reading on penalties, and yet another close encounter is on the cards. Nuno Espirito Santo's men showed character in a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United, with the team coming from behind to share the spoils with the Magpies at St. James' Park at the weekend.

He made his debut for the national team in a 2-2 draw with Senegal in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. The 178-cm tall footballer made his debut for the Loons on March 3, 2019 in a 3-2 win over Vancouver Whitecaps in the opening match of the season. Despite being born in France, Romain Metanire represents Madagascar on the international stage. His preferred foot is right and his main position is right-back.

Statistics

If anything, Wolves are more impressive on the road than they are at home and that will work in their favour against the Villans. Back goals at both ends but Wolves to beat the Villans in the competition for the very first time as the best way to get value with online betting sites in the match result market. Unbeaten in their last four road games boasting three straight wins against the likes of Besiktas, Manchester City, and in the Europa League against Slovan Bratislava, Wolves are one of the form sides in the country and will likely target this competition as a viable chance to lift some silverware. Villa meanwhile are back in the top flight after a two-year hiatus and there is nothing more important than Premier League survival.

Wolverhampton set up a meeting with Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup last 16 by beating Reading on penalties, and yet another close encounter is on the cards. Dean Smith's men are tough to beat at home and they are definitely capable of matching the Wolves in the League Cup clash. Nuno Espirito Santo's men showed character in a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United, with the team coming from behind to share the spoils with the Magpies at St. Despite producing an excellent display against Manchester City at Etihad Stadium, Aston Villa eventually suffered a 3-0 loss to Pep Guardiola's troops on Saturday afternoon. The Villains aim to get back on course, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Wolverhampton in the Carabao Cup last 16. James' Park at the weekend.

Wolves are the bookies favourites to win this match and theyre in reasonable form having only lost 2 of their last 8 games in all competitions. They were impressive 2-0 winners at top flight Stoke in the FA Cup last weekend but Wolves fans probably know better than to get carried away with that. They average just 1 point per game at Molineux this season and were beaten by a poor QPR side in their most recent home fixture. Theyve only won 1 of their last 7 home Championship games with 5 of them ending in defeat so you certainly couldnt feel confident about backing them to win this outright.

Villa have only scored 1.04 goals per game this term in the Championship and a miserable 0.54 on their travels. Theyve taken just 0.85 points per game away from home which isnt anywhere near good enough for a side with play-off ambitions. Villa are missing some key players, whove left for the AFCON. The biggest absentee is top scorer Jonathan Kodjia and without him you have to wonder where the goals are going to come from.

Minnesota United vs Aston Villa PREDICTION & BETTING TIPS - 18/07/2019

Their two losses recently have come against Manchester City and Arsenal, with the latter being particularly unlucky after they played so well for most of the game. They drew 2-2 against Burnley and beat Norwich, whilst also putting Brighton to the sword both in the Carabao Cup and Premier League. Villa have been a little bit inconsistent here and there as of late, but it hasnt been the easiest of schedules but not the hardest, either.

However, it has to be noted that the highest attendance recorded at the stadium was 76,588 when Aston Villa faced Derby County in the FA Cup back in 1946. Aston Villa is one of the three clubs that dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign. The Villans host their rivals at Villa Park, the stadium that was opened in 1897 and its capacity is 42,682.

Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. James' Park at the weekend. Wolverhampton set up a meeting with Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup last 16 by beating Reading on penalties, and yet another close encounter is on the cards. Nuno Espirito Santo's men showed character in a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United, with the team coming from behind to share the spoils with the Magpies at St.

The pacey winger scored one goal in 12 appearances for les Dogues in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 campaign, but, no doubt, there is a bright future ahead of the former Ajax starlet. Seeing that he has a dual citizenship, Anwar El Ghazi is eligible to represent both Netherlands and Morocco at senior level, but he made his debut for the Orange in a 2-1 win over Kazakhstan, with the Lille winger starting the match in a 4-3-3 formation alongside Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Memphis Depay.

Its going to be a tough back and forth battle when these two sides meet, but when push comes to shove, we honestly believe that the atmosphere at Villa Park will guide them above their rivals. Wolves have more to worry about with their next Europa League group stage clash looming large, and while theyve got the quality necessary to get the job done here, we can see Villa being a little bit more up for it on the night. It wont be a whitewash by any stretch, but Villa should have enough in the tank.
