On May 28, Villa Park (Birmingham) will host the match of the 38th round of the English Premier League, in which Aston Villa will compete with Brighton. The battle will start at 17:30 CET.
The team has been looking for “the very” coach for a long time. Dean Smith showed something while Grealish was shining on the field, and he lost his position shortly after the sale of Jack. Steven Gerrard was not bad in comparison to the previous mentor, but he convinced that he also had his own maximum in the potential over the year, and he did not meet the ambitions of the club’s management. As a result, Unai Emery appeared in Birmingham in the autumn. And already being at the end of an incomplete season, he is close to demonstrating a tangible result, bringing new wards to the European competitions. It has turned out to be a 10-match unbeaten streak since the end of February. However, the team lost to Manchester United and even Wolverhampton in May, but the higher mentioned failures were followed by new successes – it beat Tottenham and stopped Liverpool by means of a 1-1 draw. That allowed going to the 7th place, which, to be honest, must be defended.
The club started the season with Graham Potter. It is unlikely that anyone in the summer could have expected that the English specialist would become one of the main disappointments, while “the Seagulls” would finally break into the European competition. The decisive thing was that the manager had been lured to Chelsea, and the Albion bosses decided to cooperate with De Zerbi. He not only prevented the decline of the original team – he finally managed to reach a new level. Speaking about the FA Cup, only an unfortunate mistake made by March in a long penalty shoot-out prevented Manchester United from being knocked out in the semi-finals. At the same time, the misfires in the Premier League were compensated by cool statistics. It allowed getting ahead of such recognized giants as Chelsea, Tottenham and even Villa, which had added in the game. Moreover, a 1-1 draw in the battle against Manchester City secured a 4-point lead over Birmingham, guaranteeing the 6th place in the final standings.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Brighton has won only 1 of 11 head-to-head matches. Moreover, 3 previous full-time battles brought the victory of Aston Villa.
Bookmakers understand that the guests have already “answered” all the questions of the current season. It is clear that, taking into account these circumstances, Aston Villa is obliged to win (odd: 2.0).
