Aston Villa vs Hull Prediction & Betting tips
Aston Villa receives Saturday afternoon in Hull City. In Birmingham, there is a lot to win after a lesser series with two points from three matches. How different is the situation at Hull City which currently seems unbeatable. Which team is a favorite? Time for a preview of this interesting duel!
Aston Villa is currently in a lesser phase. From the last two games only one point was achieved. On New Year’s Day at Villa Park there was a 2-2 draw against Queens Park Rangers and seven days later the whole thing unexpectedly lost to Wigan Athletic which until then had been completely out of shape. Despite that, Aston Villa suffered a sensitive 3-0 defeat against Wigan Athletic. The recent performances have led to a provisional twelfth place in the ranking. The coveted play-offs can still be achieved, but the deficit is still good with five points at number six Derby County.
Aston Villa manager Dean Smith looked ahead to meet Hull City Thursday afternoon: “I expect a response from my team after the big defeat against Wigan Athletic. Until the game against Wigan Athletic we had lost only once in eleven matches. So we were working on an excellent series and that’s why the defeat came so unexpectedly. The players know that they have dropped through the lower limit last weekend. We will play nineteen finals from now on. Nigel Adkins has let Hull City play the way he wants, despite a difficult start. They are a dangerous team to play against but I believe in the strength of my players. ‘
Hull City performs as a champion as said. The last six league matches were all won. Hull City also held the 0 in four of these six matches. If we take a closer look at the series, it will take nine games in which twenty-three points were taken. During this series Hull City did not meet the least opponents: Leeds United, Norwich City and Swansea City. Only points with Norwich City and Millwall were shared. A performance of size at all if you consider that from the first eighteen games only sixteen points were achieved.
Hull City manager Nigel Adkins looked forward to the game against Aston Villa on Thursday-afternoon: “I am looking forward to playing at Aston Villa. We have analyzed them well and we know how to fight them. We would like to strengthen the selection in the coming weeks. But you have to buy the right players. They have to fit into the culture of the club both outside and on the field. I hope that two or three good players arrive in Hull. On the other hand, fortunately we have not received any bid from any club for any of our players. The owners have told me that they have the intention not to sell any players. ”
