Match Preview

The pressure will be on the reigning Premier League champions in midweek, as Man City look to get their title challenge back on track. City come into this round of matches sitting third, and they are currently three points adrift of Liverpool at the summit. Pep Guardiola’s side have played out draws in each of their last two matches.

It has been an incredible season for Aston Villa, and they are on the verge of achieving a Champions League finish. Villa come into this round sitting fourth, and three points clear of Tottenham. However, a second straight victory in the Premier League will see the West Midlands side end the round within a point of City.

City’s record in this fixture is extremely dominant, having won 17 of their last 18 home matches against the Villa. Meanwhile, they have recorded victories in each of the last 13 matches between the sides at the Etihad since a 2-0 defeat in April 2007. Villa upset the odds in the reverse clash, landing a 1-0 home win in December.

However, the Midlands side have a poor away record against reigning Premier League champions, winning just once in their last 30 visits. City’s midweek record in the Premier League also deserves a lot of respect, as they have won 27 of their last 29 matches that have been played on a Wednesday.

Man City vs Aston Villa Prediction

City will need a solid performance in this home match against a Villa side that have defied all expectations this term. We expect the home win to be the outcome, but we could see both teams finding the net on Wednesday.
