Aston Villa News and Form – Can Villa beat Wolves?

It was a 3-0 loss at Manchester City that befell Aston Villa on the weekend. That was a result which wasn’t exactly unexpected, however. The Villains had been on a good four-match undefeated streak of form in all competitions before that though, winning three of those four. They took a 3-1 win at Brighton in the last round, which followed their opening 6-1 victory at Crewe in this cup campaign. Villa have netted at least two goals in all but one of their last four home games.

Villa 1 Goal Winning Margin


So that’s enough to suggest that they may be some value to win this fixture. They have tallied up 9 goals in their two ties in the League Cup this season as well. This will be Aston Villa’s first home game in the League Cup since September 2017 when they lost to Middlesbrough. Before that the Villains were on a three-match winning streak at home in the competition, scoring a total of ten goals in those three successes. They will fancy their chances here.

Wolves News and Form – Can busy Wolves deliver at Villa Park?

Wolves could only manage a 1-1 draw for themselves at Newcastle in the Premier League on the weekend. That ensured that their undefeated streak of form stays alive and it moves Wolves to an eight-match unbeaten streak. So that has been a very good return by Wolves, considering how busy their season has been with Europa League action. Wolves have won three of their last four away games, going unbeaten in five (W3 D2) across all competitions.

They do have that extra burden of Europa League interest, so there is a decent chance that they won’t be at full strength for this one. Wolves have shaped up to be a very good away team this season. They have taken a W6 D3 L1 record on their travels in all competitions. They came into the EFL Cup in the last round. Wolves needed a penalty shoot-out at Molineux to get past Championship side Reading after a 1-1 draw.

Aston Villa vs Wolves Predictions

Aston Villa to win: Villa are not short of goals at home this season and this is probably going to be the competition of least interest to Wolves. There should be enough impetus from the home side to collect the win.
