Ipswich vs Aston Villa Prediction & Betting tips
Coming Saturday, Ipswich Town and Aston Villa meet on Portman Road. The great powers of yore have started the competition with varying degrees of success. For example, Ipswich collected only one point and Villa already won twice. What can we expect next Saturday between these two teams?
Ipswich managed to win a point after two matches, as said before. Yet the current nineteenth place in the ranking is only a snapshot. At home against Blackburn Rover (2-2), Ipswich was the better team and last Saturday was also the case in the away match against Rotherham United. This to the frustration of manager Paul Hurst.
Hurst: “Football is a very simple game. The point is that the ball disappears into the net. I think that we have had several good opportunities against Rotherham in the first half and left them unused. In the second half it was more equal, but we were the best of the two teams. We just have to be clinical if we get a chance. Three times we claimed for a penalty, but did not receive it. Only we should not hide behind this. It is difficult to remain positive now. We have shown good football but it was not enough. It is only about results and these are disappointing to date. This frustrates me! ”
Despite the lesser start, Ipswich can fall back on good position play. Against a team like Aston Villa it will probably have room to make the game.
When you look at Aston Villa you can not conclude that this team has been worked on. Manager Steve Bruce is not ashamed to play old-fashioned kick and rush football. This he has always done with his teams, but when you look at the individual qualities of the players you can expect more than the chance football.
Steve Bruce: ‘The directors have delivered excellent work during the last transfer period. I am glad that no one can be sold anymore. Not to a club from England in any case, haha. In addition, I am very pleased that we have attracted three good players. Goalkeeper Örjan Nyland (FC Ingolstadt) is a tall, big goalkeeper with a good kick in both legs. Fortunately we were also able to rent Alex Tuanzebe from Manchester United. He can play in all positions in the back and even as a defensive midfielder I can bet him. John McGinn (FC Hibernian) is a good midfielder with a beautiful left leg. That’s what we saw today at James Chester’s 1-0. ‘
Bruce’s job is to draw the best team imaginable from this selection every week. What is striking during the first matches is the ease with which opponents can create opportunities. I do not think it’s a good sign that low flyers like Hull City (once) and Wigan Athletic (twice) can score against a title candidate.
