Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Villa have seen 10 goals across their two matches in the league this term, while Hibs have seen both teams score in each of their last seven games. The hosts have also seen BTTS in all of their last seven games in this competition, so this clash should be good for goals.

Aston Villa 3-2

Reason for tip

Hibs have scored twice or more in five of their last six games and in each of their last three in this competition. They meet a Villa side who could make changes at the back. Villa are fresh from scoring four against Everton so they should hurt this Hibs defence.

Hibernian vs Aston Villa Predictions

  • Hibs have seen both teams score in all seven of their games this season
  • They’ve also seen BTTS in their last seven Europa Conference League games
  • There have been 10 goals across Villa’s opening two Premier League games
  • Hibs won 7-3 and 5-3 on aggregate in the previous rounds of this competition

Emery returns to Europe

Aston Villa head north to Edinburgh on Wednesday evening for a clash which marks their return to Europe. It’s a speedy return to this competition for Unai Emery, who led Villarreal in this competition less than a year ago. He won the Europa League with the club in 2021 before taking them to a Champions League semi-final in 2022, so his European experience in huge.

Having seen West Ham claim European glory in this competition, Villa will hope they can follow suit in 2024. They certainly have the right boss for it, with Emery lifting the Europa League on four occasions. Before that, they need to qualify for the group stage by seeing off Hibs across two legs.

Expect goals in Edinburgh

It’s been an incredibly open start to the season for Hibs, who have seen both teams score in all seven of their matches this term. They’ve played four Europa Conference League games, conceding to Andorran side Inter d’Escaldes and Switzerland’s Luzern.

Hibs beat Luzern 5-3 on aggregate after seeing off the Andorran side 7-3, so their run in this tournament has been quite open. In fact, each of their last seven Conference League games have seen both teams score, while they meet a Villa side who conceded five in their first away trip of the season.

Villa have also scored five times in the Premier League already, so this clash looks good for goals. Hibs can’t afford to sit back ahead of next week’s return leg and they’ll have to push forward once Villa break through their defence. As a result, both teams to score is the standout bet for this one.
