Betting Tips for the game
Brentford lost for the first time in 11 matches after a 2-1 loss against Nottingham Forest. After having been through such an enormous unbeaten sequence, it was disappointing to witness a poor performance from Thomas Frank’s men.
Aston Villa staged a remarkable recovery to pick up a draw against Sheffield United after finding themselves 3-0 down just after the hour. Villa, though, have been able to pick up one victory in the last eight matches.
Brentford and Aston Villa played out a 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture back in August. Brentford, meanwhile, were able to register a 2-1 win – their second successive home win – over Aston Villa in the recent meeting at Griffin Park. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a win for Brentford.

Aston Villa have been quite disappointing when it comes to matches against Brentford with no victories in five attempts. It is unlikely that Dean Smith’s team will be able to reverse this trend seems will have been quite mediocre of late. Even though comebacks like against Sheffield United during the weekend can inspire Villa, they have been unable to build on the same. Brentford were quite poor during the weekend and it may be a wake-up call for the team after an extended unbeaten sequence, which may have yielded some complacency to the team. Our preview would opt for a Brentford win.

Correct Score odds
Brentford were able to suffer a 2-1 loss against Nottingham Forest in a game that witnessed little forward thrust from Thomas Frank’s men, but it has been unlike them in recent weeks. Aston Villa continue to suffer from a weak defence that has managed one clean sheet in the last eight games. Whenever Brentford and Villa have come against each other, clean sheets have been a rare occurrence. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-1 win for the hosts.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
An incredible three out of the last four meetings between Brentford and Villa – over the last two seasons – have ended up producing more than 2.5 goals with comfort. The poor defensive form shown by both teams coming into the game increases the likelihood of witnessing over 2.5 goals, according to our total goals prediction.

First Goalscorer odds
Neal Maupay’s four-game scoring sequence came to a halt following the blank against Nottingham Forest during the weekend. The 17-goal hero has been in excellent form throughout the campaign, and he was able to destroy Villa earlier in the campaign after coming up with a brace. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Neal Maupay.
