Our "Prediction Wizard" will calculate, based on the current available betting odds, the implicit winning percentages for the possible outcomes in a match. This will be updated as soon as we fetch the odds from the betting sites and keep updating until the match is finished.
Aston Villa will be hosting Brentford at home in this match. While Aston Villa has won its previous two matches after its opening day loss, Brentford is currently unbeaten this season! It is not often that newly promoted teams are able to keep clean sheets in the Premier League but that is exactly what Brentford has managed to do in its two Premier League matches so far.
Aston Villa registered a 6-0 win in the EFL Cup mid-week but the results of those matches should be taken with a grain of salt. Think of them as morale boosters than any other major indications of the team's strengths. Cameron Archer made some people look up after scoring a hat-trick in this match but the loss of Jack Grealish is unlikely to be filled quite so easily. Danny Ings has been the new arrival that has impressed us the most so far. Can he help Aston Villa to help end the fairy tale run that Brentford has been having?
EPL Match prediction and football betting tips for Aston Villa vs Brentford EPL 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Villa Park, Birmingham on the 28th of August 2021.
We think the fantastic start by Brentford has resulted in the bookmakers overvaluing it a little bit. This is why the odds available for this match on Aston Villa to win are fantastic. We do believe that Aston Villa has the attack needed to be able to get past Brentford's defense. Aston Villa has scored 8 goals in its previous two matches and is going to be quite confident coming into this match. It also loves playing at Aston Villa and can be quite hard to beat.
Brentford does not have too many great goal-scoring options apart from Ivan Toney to be able to put pressure back on Aston Villa.
Bet on Aston Villa to win.
Danny Ings scored an excellent overhead kick goal against Newcastle and was rested for the mid-week EFL Cup fixture. This is to make sure that he is ready for the EPL match on the weekend. It shows that Aston Villa see him as their number one striker moving forward and we think he has what it takes to be able to score another goal in this match.
We don't think this is going to be a goal-scoring fest like we have seen the matches in the midweek be. Brentford was a part of a goalless draw against Crystal Palace in its previous match and found it tough to create chances. Its focus seems to be on keeping clean sheets and then taking advantage of any mistakes its opponent makes. Aston Villa may be able to get one or even two goals in the match but we think the total number of goals is not going to be above that.
