Aston Villa betting (2020 updated)
Aston Villa Odds
The previous season was a comeback moment for the Villans after a 3-year stint in the Championship. They narrowly avoided relegation with a 17th placement, which is far from ideal. Still, it represents a sort of return to form and gives hope to their beleaguered supporters.
That said, any sort of real success is still quite a ways off. A Top 6 Finish is generally priced at 12.00 or so, indicating very low chances of actually making it to international competition. However, if there’s anything we should have learned from that previous season, it’s that Aston Villa truly belongs in the Premier League and that they can be full of surprises. Sometimes, though, this unpredictability ends up working against them.
Aston Villa Key Players
The updates coach Dean Smith made came with a price tag of over €80 million – fans can only hope it’ll be worth it. The biggest arrivals include Brentford’s striker and wunderkind Ollie Watkins and Lyon’s winger Bertrand Traoré. Some found the focus on attackers a bit strange given the horrifying 67 conceded goals in the previous season – but it’s not like their strikers did much better.
Still, Smith’s play may be to improve what he currently has in terms of the lineup. The biggest focus seems to be on creating a solid transition from defence to offence down the wings. Team captain Jack Grealish is on a string of amazing seasons, and a lot is expected of him.
Aston Villa Rivalry
The Second City Derby is a famous match in English football. It features fierce clashes between two arch-enemies, Aston Villa and Birmingham City. However, Villa’s biggest rivals have historically been West Bromwich Albion. As the two clubs from West Midlands, they share local rivalry on a more intensified level. With their stadiums literally miles apart, these two clubs went head-to-head in no less than three FA Cup finals during the 19th century. In addition to the two aforementioned clubs, Aston Villa also vies heated contests with Wolverhampton Wanderers. Consequently, this match will be the only one Aston Villa supporters will be able to enjoy this season in the Premier League with both Birmingham and WBA competing in lower ranks of English football.
Aston Villa History
Formed by members of the Villa Cross Wesleyan Chapel in 1874, Aston Villa wasted no time in establishing itself as the leading side in the Midlands. Only six years after their birth, the Villans lifted their first piece of silverware, winning the Birmingham Senior Cup. The club’s rich history saw Villans emerge as one of the notable sides both in England and internationally. Aston Villa have seven First Division titles in their trophy cabinet, two Second Division titles and one from the Third Division. Furthermore, the Villans lifted the FA Cup trophy on seven different occasions. On top of it, they won 5 League Cup titles and one Charity Shield. Looking at the club from a European perspective, Aston Villa are proud winners of the European Cup (1981/82), European Super Cup (1982) and Intertoto Cup (2001). Interestingly, the end of 2018/19 campaign marked Aston Villa’s 105th season in the top tier of English football, which is the second-best result in the country.
