Bristol City vs Aston Villa – Predictions & Football Betting Tips

skybet championship logo

Bristol City hope to avoid either consecutive league defeat when they take on Aston Villa at the Ashton Gate Stadium in the midweek action. Bristol have dropped out of the play-off places following the poor run, but the team are just two points behind the top six. Aston Villa are at 13 points but quite far away from where Steve Bruce wants the team in the table. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Betting Tips for the game

Bristol once again came in with a poor away performance and Wigan capitalised on the same with a 1-0 win. This was the second consecutive defeat for Bristol and it comes a few days after the 4-2 loss against West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Aston Villa lost for the first time at Villa Park this season as they fell to a 2-1 home defeat against Sheffield Wednesday. Bruce has seen his team register just one win in the last five games across all competitions.

Villa were able to get a comprehensive 5-0 win over Bristol in the recent meeting between the two teams at Villa Park. However, the two teams drew 1-1 in the last meeting at the Ashton Gate Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions expect this game to end up as a draw.

Match odds

Aston Villa and Bristol are closely matched in terms of their prices for the game. Both teams are low on confidence after coming in with some poor performances of late. Villa have also never picked up a win at the Ashton Gate Stadium – drawing once and losing the other – in recent visits. Bristol may have picked up back-to-back home runs but the team will be low on confidence. Since May, Villa have lost one away game in the league. Our preview does not expect Villa to slip to a second successive loss considering the stake, and we would go for a draw.

Bristol City win odds: 2.50

Aston Villa win odds: 2.80

Correct Score odds

Villa have averaged 1.5 goals in away games this season while Bristol have averaged the same at home. Bristol had very few decent attempts at goal against Wigan. Even though things are expected to improve in the home game, our correct score prediction would play safe and go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

The recent meeting between Villa and Bristol at the Ashton Gate Stadium produced less than 2.5 goals and both teams will be quite worried about a loss coming into the game. Hence, we expect a cagey game with less than 2.5 goals, as per our total goals prediction.

First Goalscorer odds

Famara Diedhiou was the impressive performer for Bristol in the loss against Wigan. He has two league goals this season but one of those coming at home. Even though he is looking for his first goal against Villa, our first goalscorer prediction would back the Senegalese forward.
