ASTON VILLA

Aston Villa’s season won’t deliver a European spot for next season nor are they battling against the drop. However,  a top-half finish could still be a possibility if they can win their last two league games if none of the teams above them win their games on the final day of the season.

The Villans have failed to win their last two league games (1D, 1L) and they have won just three of their last ten league games (2D, 5L), a bad run of form for a team that coincides with their current position of 14th place on the league table.

Steven Gerrard has had mixed feelings in his first stint as a manager of an English side after he left Scottish Champions Rangers to replace the sacked Dean Smith last December and having steadied the ship from Villa’s relegation battle when he took over, they have not been able to mount a continental challenge which was their goal when the season began last September.

Aston Villa have not had the best of home form in the league this season as they have won more games on their travels than the number of wins they have acquired at Villa Park with six wins from their thirteen league wins happening at home and they can’t match their point tally from last season as they are eleven points off from the fifty-five-point they garnered last season with only six points left available.

BURNLEY

Burnley have a battle on their hands in their last two league games as they aim to avoid relegation to the Championship after seven consecutive years in the Premier League in which they have qualified for Europe, mid-table finishes, and last day relegation escape during this period.

Mike Jackson who replaced Burnley’s long-serving manager Sean Dyche last month after the team’s dismal run tried to turn the fortunes of the club around and the result can be seen with the club one point behind 17th placed Leeds United who have played a game more and Jackson winning the Premier League Manager of the Month for April.

The Claret have lost their two league games but they went unbeaten in the four games before that losing run (3W, 1D) and six of their seven league wins have come in this calendar year and two wins from their last two league games means they will avoid the drop regardless in what happens with the result of their fellow strugglers.

Burnley in the relegation battle can be attributed to their inability to score goals as only the bottom side and already relegated Norwich City have scored less goals than their thirty-two league goals and only four times have they scored more than two goals in a league game this season coupled with the fact that they sold Chris Wood to Newcastle during the January transfer window and his replacement Wout Weghorst has not set the league ablaze.

ASTON VILLA VS BURNLEY BETTING PREDICTIONS

Aston Villa have nothing to play for but pride. The Villans promised so much at the start of the season, but they have fallen short with a not too impressive performance this term. The appointment of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard promised so much, but his reign has left so much to be desired.

Burnley on the other hand are fighting for their Premier League status and they need a favourable result to guarantee their spot in the topflight for next season.

Both sides will go all out for all the points on offer and as such, we reckon that there are going to be at least Over 1.5 Goals in this fixture.

Not afraid of taking a plunge? You can try our risk odds prediction for a chance for high returns from wagering on high odds.

Odibets is reputed to have competitive odds and they are offering 1.32 odds for Over 1.5 Goals betting option.
