Reason For Burton Albion vs Aston Villa Predictions

  • Aston Villa won five of their seven League Cup matches last season.
  • Both teams scored in all seven of these matches.
  • Burton Albion have lost three of their last four League Cup meetings with top tier opposition.

Travelling Villains to prove too much for Burton

These two sides last met in 2018 as Burton Albion knocked Aston Villa out of the League Cup, but a lot has changed over the last couple of years.

Aston Villa narrowly avoided relegation last season but the one place they did find success was in the League Cup. They went all the way to the final and put up a good fight against Manchester City, but in the end they had to settle for a runners up medal.

What this does tell us is that the Villains take this competition seriously, and we can expect Dean Smith to name a strong squad for Villa’s first competitive match of the new season.

Burton have already been in action but their 2-1 defeat at Fleetwood Town doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in the hosts’ ability. They will also be without key centre back O’Toole after his late red card at Fleetwood.

Aston Villa should have the quality to see off the League One outfit, and with five wins in their seven League Cup games last season an away win is well worth a bet. Both teams did score in all seven of their games in this competition last season though, so a repeat of Burton’s 2-1 defeat on Saturday makes the grade for our correct score prediction.
