Aston Villa vs Leeds predictions and betting tips for the Championship fixture on Friday evening with an anytime goalscorer tip and match prediction included.
Villa are back in the promotion shake-up after beating Cardiff courtesy of a Jack Grealish stunner on Tuesday night. Steve Bruce’s side have been incredibly inconsistent recently and the fans were beginning to get worried but that result has assuaged any fears. Villa have a squad which is more than capable of achieving promotion but since battering Wolves, they haven’t kicked on. They will see this tie against struggling Leeds as a very winnable tie. The Yorkshire side sit 14th and have won just one of the last five. Things haven’t worked out for Paul Heckingbottom but the club look unlikely to press the panic button just yet as they are safe from relegation. They’ve won just twice since Christmas and have kept just three clean sheets in 2018. See our Aston Villa vs Leeds betting tips and predictions in the article below:
Villa’s morale-boosting win against Cardiff could kick-start an improved run in form and it’s now or never in their quest for Championship promotion. Leeds have nothing to play for and they were easily defeated by Preston in midweek. The Villains should find this simple enough. The first of our Aston Villa vs Leeds betting tips is Aston Villa HT/FT which is available at 7/5 with Bet Victor.
Villa needed something special to break down Cardiff but it should be easier to find a way past Leeds. The away side did score twice past Derby and Reading and can be dangerous going forward. Goals could flow here. Over 2.5 Goals is priced at 16/19 with 888Sport and is the second of our Aston Villa vs Leeds predictions.
Jack Grealish is in good form and he could be interesting in the goalscorer market. Albert Adomah ha had an excellent season but it goalless in six. Robert Snodgrass will be keen to score against his former employers and he is a decent price to find the back of the net here. Robert Snodgrass in the anytime goalscorer market is priced at 11/4 with Betfair and is the last of our Aston Villa vs Leeds betting tips.
Villa are understandably the favourites for this tie and having won four of the last five home matches, a price of 1/2 makes perfect sense. The draw can be backed at 11/2 with the away side available at 6/1.
As our predictions suggest, goals are likely at Villa Park and Over 2.5 Goals is available at 13/16 whilst it’s 21/20 for this game to finish with fewer than three goals.
Jonathon Kodjia has recently returned from injury and he is being eased in gently. He is 18/5 to score the first goal of the game. Lewis Grabban is the same price.
All these odds are from Bet Victor
Alan Hutton will miss this tie with a thigh injury and is joined on the sidelines by Jed Steer and Gabby Agbonlahor.
Leeds’ Gaetano Berardi is suspended (again) and won’t feature with Liam Cooper and Eunan O’Kane likely to miss this one through injury.
