Brentford welcome Aston Villa to the Brentford Community Stadium this Sunday in the Premier League. The Bees will be hoping to stop a run of three league and cup defeats, whilst the Villans will want to bounce back from the Boxing Day loss to Chelsea. Villa have shown a real improvement since Steve Gerrard inherited the managerial reigns at Villa Park, and the visitors head to London as the bookies’ favourites.

Brentford Preview – Will the Bees avoid a third successive loss?

Brentford have had a mixed first season in the Premier League so far. They were tipped for relegation right after winning last term’s EFL Championship play-offs, but Thomas Frank’s men have certainly held their own at times.

The Bees are currently in 14th spot after 18 games played. They have won five, drawn five and lost eight. Three of those victories came before mid-October, with the London side stuggling for wins in recent months. Since winning at West Ham United on 3rd October, Brentford have lost seven of their following 11 league matches.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 2127 GMT, Friday 31 December)

After back-to-back defeats to Brighton & Hove Albion and Manchester City, Brentford will be desperate to return to winning ways, especially as they face the likes of Liverpool, Man City and Arsenal in three of the next five.

Aston Villa Preview – Will Gerrard pick up fifth victory?

With Steven Gerrard watching on from home, Aston Villa fell to a disappointing home defeat to Chelsea on Boxing Day. The Villans head into this one now having lost three of their past five.

Nevertheless, the Midlands outfit have shown a big improvement under Gerrard, who left Rangers to take over at Villa Park at the beginning of November. Under their new boss, Villa have beaten Brighton, Crystal Palace, Leicester City and Norwich City.

Gerrard’s three defeats have come against title chasers Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea. They have been faultless in the other four, and the Villans will be on the search for all three points at the Brentford Community Stadium on Sunday.


Brentford vs Aston Villa Betting Advice

Back in August, Brentford held Aston Villa to a frustrating draw at Villa Park. Ivan Toney opened the scoring after seven minutes, with Emiliano Buendia levelling for the hosts just six minutes later.

That was the first meeting between the pair since they locked horns in the 2018-19 Championship campaign. After a 2-2 draw at Villa Park, a Neal Maupay goal gave the Bees a 1-0 home victory.


Key Facts – Brentford vs Aston Villa Betting Tip

  • Brentford have lost three league and cup matches on the spin
  • Gerrard has won four of seven as Aston Villa boss
  • The Bees are unbeaten in seven against the Villans


Brentford have an excellent recent record in this fixture, winning three and drawing four of the last seven. The pair drew 1-1 at Villa Park in August, but we fancy Villa to edge this one at the Brentford Community Stadium. The Bees were beaten 1-0 on Wednesday, and a repeat scoreline here is generously priced at 15/2.

Former Brentford striker Ollie Watkins would love to score against his old club. Watkins is available at 6/1 to hit the opening goal of the game.
