Aston Villa not to lose away to Cardiff

The match from the 26th round of the Premier League between Aston Villa and Cardiff will be played on Tuesday at 20.45 local time. Cardiff is on the second to last place in the current standings with 21 points. Aston Villa has six points more for now, which means that an eventual victory for the away team tonight will be decisive for their salvation among the best teams in England.

The appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a manager of Cardiff didn’t gave the major boost the Welsh needed to come off from the bottom. The Norwegian, who recorded great results as a manager of Molde recorded five losses in his first six matches in the team.

The style of the team was not improved too as Cardiff continued to perform poorly and didn’t create enough goal attempts. In the last six Premier League matches the players from Cardiff have scored only four goals, which is not good at all.

Aston Villa is with two straight losses and six in the last ten matches they have played in the Premier League. This is a result that is more than unconvincing for the team, although Villa leads the group of teams that are fighting to escape relegation. Nevertheless, Aston Villa has players in the squad like Christian Benteke and Gabriel Agbonlahor that can decide a match against Cardiff with just one touch.

This is exactly why it is not strange that the big bookmakers offer odds for a match between equal teams. Bet365 favors the hosts as they offer odds for their victory of 2.5 versus 3 for an away win. The bookie’s proposal for a draw is 3.4.

Much lower coefficient for a draw is proposed by William Hill as it is only 3.1. The same rate is the eventual victory for Aston Villa, but the home team’s chances in this match are estimated at 2.4.

bet-at-home offers rates as follows 2.3, 3.3 and 3 for a home win, a draw and a victory for the visitors in the match.

I personally don’t see how Aston Villa will lose this match, although honestly I don’t see how they will win it. That’s why I would bet the home not to win. The highest odds for this bet comes with the bookmakers 12BET, 5Dimes and Dafabet and is 1.63.
