Fulham vs Aston Villa Prediction & Betting tips
Third game day in the Premier League and the first point win for the Cottagers from London so far. In order to avoid a false start in the English House of Lords, Fulham is under pressure on Monday evening. With Aston Villa, one of the favorite opponents is received at Craven Cottage. After all, the home side brought five home wins in a row against the Villans.
According to the odds comparison of the betting base, Fulham is against Aston Villa according to the odds in the outsider role. An assessment that we would not share. Because even if the Villans have remained unbeaten three times in a row, the cottagers in Craven Cottage have a home advantage that should not be diminished – and that despite the ghostly backdrop, mind you.
During the week, Fulham won the EFL Cup at home over Sheffield Wednesday, but let numerous players from the second guard play. Accordingly, the double burden for the cottagers should not be felt. On Monday evening, Fulham coach Parker will send his permanent staff back onto the field.
The form-strong Villans, on the other hand, want to end the negative series at Craven Cottage. In addition to our analysis of the Monday game between Fulham vs. Aston Villa you can find more tips about the Premier League in the betting base category Premier League Tips.
Fulham want to compensate for the weak start to the season in the Premier League. The Cottagers got off to a very poor start to the season with a 3-0 defeat against Arsenal and a 4-0 defeat against Leeds United, placing them last in the Premier League. In order to at least breathe a sigh of relief, a home win on Monday evening is almost a must.
In the Premier League there is still no spectator. Accordingly, the home teams must compete in front of a ghost backdrop, which affects the home advantage. Still, it is a psychological advantage for the Cottagers to play in the home stadium. As last year’s Fulham home record shows, Craven Cottage was a fortress.
At the start of the season there was a 3-0 defeat in their own stadium against the Gunners from London. Although Fulham were an equal opponent, Arsenal’s offensive could not be stopped. In addition, it was impressively made clear how important Aleksandar Mitrovic is for the Cottagers.
Last week, the Serbian goalkeeper started in the starting line-up and tied a brace for the Cottagers. The defeat could not be averted after the weak defensive performance. How Parker will bridge the defensive problem against Aston Villa is not yet in sight. It is quite possible that another goal will have to be accepted.
On Monday evening there will not be a single failure in the Cottagers’ squad. Parker is unlikely to make any major changes.
The Villans had no play on the first day of the Premier League and therefore only started the new season last week. There was a home win against Sheffield United at the start of the season. If Aston Villa also wins the upcoming match in London, the Villans would start the new PL season with two wins for the first time since the 1990/00 season.
During the week, Aston Villa underpinned their strong form with a cup win over Bristol City. Although the second guard was used as far as possible, the Villans won a safe away win at the championship opponent. It remains to be seen whether the fourth competitive win in a row is now.
In a foreign country the best performances were not shown last season. The Villans had an away record of 2-5-12 in the 2019/20 Premier League season, making the team of head coach Dean Smith the third worst away team in the Premier League. On average, the Villans conceded almost two goals per away game.
There were no major investments in the back team in the summer. Nevertheless, the Villans’ defense was far more stable than in the last season. On the offensive, on the other hand, Aston Villa has strengthened significantly with players like Ollie Watkins (Brentford) and Bertrand Traore (Lyon). In the previous three competitive games, seven goals have been netted.
Coach Dean Smith will not be absent in London. Changes in the starting XI can be ruled out as far as possible.
