Aston Villa vs Fulham: Prediction and Betting Tips
A European spot needs a winning streak from Aston Villa
Having 41 points at 10th position, Aston Villa remain in contention for European qualification as they are eight points behind 5th placed West Ham. Dean Smith must be concerned with his team’s recent form as they haven’t won in their last four matches scoring just one goal.
With Jack Grealish back to full training, Villa fans hope the Englishman will help his team to create more chances upfront and get some shots at goal something they weren’t able to do in the whole of the first half of their last match against Tottenham and ending the match with just one shot.
In their last 15 matches, Aston Villa haven’t won back-to-back matches having won four matches during that period. Villa still have ten matches to play in the season. If Dean Smith can make his team find the form they were in early this season, they might battle for a European spot.
Fulham need a win at all costs
Although Fulham are 18th and in the relegation zone, they still have to play eight matches in the season. It could be a grueling battle between Fulham (26 pts), Newcastle (28 pts), and even Brighton (32 pts).
With 24 points still on the grabs, anything is possible if boss Scott Parker’s team starts winning some games. The Cottagers have lost their last two games and have one win in their last five matches and that was away to Liverpool. But then again who hasn’t beaten The Reds at Anfield this season!
In their last match, Fulham lost to Leeds at home 2-1. It was an even contest and Fulham had a good performance sharing possession with Leeds and having the same goal attempts 13 for both teams but in the end, one goal was the difference between these two teams.
- Aston Villa have not won in their last three home matches
- Aston Villa have scored three goals in their last five home matches
- Fulham have won two of their last four away matches
- Fulham have scored in three of their last four matches
Aston Villa vs Fulham Prediction
Obviously, this is a very important match for Fulham. If they lose and Newcastle who have played one match less, win, the latter will open a five-point gap with Fulham and make things harder for the Cottagers.
Aston Villa are favorites to win this match with 2.30 odds. A Fulham win pays 3.30. This will be a tight match and we don’t expect to see many goals in this one.
In 46% of Aston Villa matches this season and their last five-match have seen under 2.5 goals.
