Leeds vs Aston Villa Betting Tips
Leeds United and Aston Villa are two of the most attack-minded teams in the Premier League and they meet at Elland Road on Saturday, with both sides able to play freely considering that they’re well clear of the drop zone.
Indeed, Leeds and Villa will both be happy with how their seasons are working out, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side showing lots of flair in their first campaign back in the top flight, while the visitors are vastly improved compared to last year’s relegation-threatened term.
Leeds Strong Favourites to Beat Villa at Elland Road
It’s hard to get too excited about the 21/20 that Leeds win this game considering they have only triumphed four times in eleven attempts, with the Whites having a better strike rate on the road.
The Yorkshire side have lost six of their previous nine clashes in all competitions and Kalvin Phillips is still absent which is a blow considering that the defensive midfielder really offered a shield which allowed many of his team-mates to rove forward.
Our prediction is that Leeds will come up short in this clash and certainly fail to register a victory, although they are still full of goals going forward thanks to the impressive performances of Raphinha and Patrick Bamford.
Villa Set to Struggle Without Grealish
It appears that Jack Grealish will miss the next few matches for Aston Villa and the team certainly struggled to create chances without their midfielder when losing to Leicester City last weekend.
Ross Barkley probed away and Ollie Watkins is always sharp in the box and we should expect the visitors to find the scoresheet at least once in this clash for what should be an open match of football.
However, we’re going to keep things simple with our tip and back both teams to score over the ninety minutes at relatively attractive odds.
