Aston Villa v Burnley are set to play their missed AFL fixture on May 19, with the match forecast prepared by our experts. Full statistics and current odds for the match can be found at 1xbet website.
The Birmingham side have been without motivation for a long time
Aston Villa occupies 14th position in the APL, the club is not in danger of relegation, although they have failed to make any significant progress. The last round was a 1-1 home draw against Crystal Palace. A lot depends on the Birmingham side in the championship race, as they will play against leading Manchester City in the last round. Steven Gerrard could help his hometown Liverpool, although it would be incredibly difficult to take points away from the Citizens. Two players will miss the upcoming battle through injury.
A crucial battle for Burnley
Burnley are having a nervy end to the season, as the club is in the relegation zone, sitting in 18th place. The gap from 17th place, held by Leeds, is just one point, with a game in hand. In the last round, the team lost away to an equally motivated Tottenham 0-1. Everything is still in Burnley’s hands, even a draw in this meeting will allow them to beat Leeds by a better goal difference, although here we should set ourselves up for victory only. The club has a lot of personnel losses, six players will not be able to take to the field.
They met less than a fortnight ago in a 3-1 away win at Aston Villa.
Aston Villa are slight favourites to win this encounter, although the odds are creeping up on the home side. Birmingham are not going to give points to a motivated rival, this was also evident in the first face-to-face meeting of the rivals. We think it will be a head-to-head game, so we’re betting on an exchange of goals.
