Aston Villa Prediction – Can Aston Villa bounce back?

It was with a fair amount of confidence and expectation that Aston Villa made their way down to London for last week’s season-opener against Tottenham, as the west midlands club had recently secured promotion back to the Premier League and had enjoyed a successful pre-season.

A 2-1 win in the Championship play-off final over Derby County at Wembley ensured Dean Smith’s boys would make a return to the top flight after a near miss the previous season, and having won all 5 of their pre-season matches, Villa looked to be riding a crest of a wave.

However, Aston Villa were sent crashing back down to earth as they suffered a heavy 3-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham, with striker Harry Kane in clinical form in front of goal. Villa weren’t helped by some naive defending at times, but with a return to Villa Park this Saturday, the hosts have a great chance of redeeming themselves against Bournemouth, who tend not to travel too well.

As it’s early days though, the goals markets look appealing with 5 of Aston Villa’s last 6 home matches resulting in both teams scoring.

Bournemouth Prediction – Can Bournemouth continue recent run?

With just 1 defeat out of their last 5 matches in all competitions, Bournemouth will feel they have a chance of taking something from their trip to the west midlands this Saturday afternoon against newly promoted Aston Villa.

This recent run of results were amidst Bournemouth’s pre-season preparations with their one defeat during this sequence being a 4-3 loss at home to Serie A side, Lazio. Wins over Brentford 3-1 away and a 3-0 home win over Lyon were welcome victories though ahead of the new season for The Cherries.

The visitors opened their account in last week’s season-opener at home against another promoted side, Sheffield United, with a 1-1 draw, and although The Cherries finished last season with a couple of away wins towards the end of the campaign with victories at Huddersfield Town and Brighton, Eddie Howe knows his side must do more on the road this term.

Bournemouth’s 13 losses away from home last season in the top flight was the most number of defeats they’ve suffered in their previous 4 seasons in the Premier League, so Howe will be desperate for his side to be more competitive on their travels in this campaign.


Key-Facts – Aston Villa v Bournemouth

  • 5 of Aston Villa’s last 6 home matches have resulted in both teams scoring
  • Bournemouth have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches in all competitions
  • Both teams have scored in both of the previous 2 meetings at Villa Park


Betting Tips Verdict

This fixture looks like being an open and attacking affair as Villa will want to impress in their first home match of the season while Bournemouth carry serious attacking threats but can’t defend on the road.
