Aston Villa to Win and Under 2.5 Match Goals

Aston Villa vs Hibernian Predictions

  • Aston Villa have won each of their last three games, prevailing by at least two goals in each of them
  • Hibernian have won only one of their last five matches
  • Aston Villa kept 12 clean sheets in the Premier League last season

Second-string Villa side should do the double

The disparity between the Premier League and Scottish Premiership was clear to see last Wednesday when Aston Villa romped to a 5-0 win at Easter Road in the first leg of their Europa Conference League playoff with Hibernian.

An Ollie Watkins hat-trick coupled with goals from Leon Bailey and Douglas Luiz means Villa have one foot in the group stage of the Europa Conference League but punters should not expect another thrashing in the return fixture at Villa Park.

Unai Emery will likely ring the changes for this contest with Aston Villa visiting Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon and there is no incentive to chase the game.

Tough times set to continue for Hibs

As for Hibernian, they are having a tough time of it right now and dismissed manager Lee Johnson following Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to Livingston.

They will merely be playing for pride when they visit the Midlands but the gulf in class between the teams last time out was hard to ignore and another defeat could await them.

A second-string Villa side should get the job done but punters should anticipate a less explosive encounter and a bet on the home side to win and under 2.5 goals could represent a bit of value.

Hibernian could only direct two shots on target at Easter Road last Wednesday and could again struggle up top, so back Villa to shut them out with 2-0 the best correct score prediction.
