Manchester City vs Aston Villa Predictions

  • Manchester City’s last seven Premier League games have produced just 12 goals.
  • Six of these seven games have gone under 2.5 goals.
  • Manchester City have scored exactly once in four of their last six league matches, including two 1-0 wins.

City look to get back on track

Manchester City’s title charge took a hit on Sunday as they played out a drab goalless draw with fellow challengers Arsenal and it could be another low-scoring affair when they host Aston Villa on Wednesday.

The Cityzens may have hit their stride over the past few months but it has been a case of controlling games and securing narrow victories rather than blowing the opposition away and they face a Villans outfit that will be keen to keep the scoreline down.

Villans keeping close eye on goal difference

Unai Emery’s side are three points above Tottenham in the race for Champions League qualification and have a marginally greater goal difference, so managing games such as these could prove key come the end of the season.

The visitors beat rivals Wolves last time out to make it four wins, one draw and one defeat in their last six games but they have lost to Spurs, Manchester United and Newcastle this year so a result at the Etihad could be beyond them.

Hosts to edge it on Wednesday

Any defeat could be a close-run affair, though. Manchester City’s last seven Premier League games have produced just 12 goals in total and six of these have featured fewer than three goals. With each of Aston Villa’s last two going under 2.5 goals, backing under 2.5 goals at long odds looks excellent value.

Pep Guardiola’s side have won by a 1-0 scoreline in two of their last five league games and have scored exactly once in four of their last six in the top flight, so that looks a stand-out choice in the correct score market.
