Aston Villa vs Middlesbrough Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 15th May 2018
Aston Villa vs Middlesbrough – Championship: Aston Villa and Middlesbrough face
off this Tuesday night at Villa Park.
On a match counting towards the 2nd leg of the semi-finals of the Premier League’s promotion play-offs.
Aston Villa is in 4th place of the Championship with 83 points conquered, thanks to a record of 24 victories, 11 draws and 11 losses.
Their goal record tells us that they present 72 goals scored and 42 goals conceded, presenting an average of 2.5 goals per match.
Their record at home was very positive, with the team getting 14 wins in 23 matches, which makes Aston Villa the 3rd team with most points conquered on that condition.
The team is on a good moment of form, having gotten 4 victories on the last 6 matches.
Middlesbrough occupies the 5th place of the league table with 76 points conquered, thanks to a record of 22 victories, 10 draws and 14 losses.
When it comes to goals, they count with 67 goals scored and 45 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.4 goals per match.
Their record away from home was good, with the team winning 8 of the 23 matches they’ve played away from home in the league. They aren’t on a great moment of form, since they failed to win the last 2 matches they’ve played.
The 1st leg encounter finished with a 1-0 for the visitors of Aston Villa and therefore, Middlesbrough will have to recover from that disadvantage at Villa Park.
I prefer to stay away from the winners’ market, believing there is more value in exploring the corners’ market.
Middlesbrough is very strong on that aspect, usually imposing a lot of speed down the wings, zone where Adama Traoré plays, the main catalyst of the team’s football, conquering several corners every match.
I also remind you that 40% of the goals they’ve scored this season were through set pieces.
Aston Villa vs Middlesbrough – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Aston Villa is once again involved on the offensive process, trying to provide to their top goal scorer Lewis Grabban (who has 20 goals scored in the league) in several ways, also gaining a lot of corners.
On the last 4 matches both teams have played, there have always been at least 10 corners, and I believe that it won’t be any different at Villa Park.
