Aston Villa, last round, had chances to win against Crystal Palace. The Birmingham side led from the 69th minute onwards, but eventually allowed the Eagles to get back into the game. The referee’s final whistle recorded the score at 1-1.
In general, the Lions are in a decent form at the moment. In the last 5 rounds, they conceded only once, with 2 draws and 2 defeats.
Aston Villa are 13th in the standings. The side have 44 points. At the moment, it’s enough not to worry about keeping your place in the top flight. At the same time, I can’t help but point out that the Villans have not claimed anything more than a place in the middle of the standings for a long time.
The Birmingham side have played 18 matches on home soil, in which they have scored 22 points (B-6, H-4, P-8).
Burnley lost last round (to Tottenham 1-0). This is the second consecutive defeat for the team. Interestingly, the game before last saw a “los” from Aston Villa (1-3).
In the standings, the Bordeaux are 18th. In 36 games, they have earned 34 points. The gap from the saving 17th place is only 1 point. Consequently, if they can win now, they will get out of the relegation zone.
One of Burnley’s weaknesses this season has been their away performances. Only 13 points have been earned in 18 games. All the team’s results are as follows: 2 wins, 7 draws and 9 defeats. There have been 15 goals scored and 17 conceded.

Aston Villa vs Burnley Forecast & Wager. Outcome with cf. 3,60
Despite not the loudest of signings, the meeting promises to be very interesting. Villa have been pretty good at home (22 points from 44 have been earned at Villa Park). Now Gerrard’s charges will try to win, because for them it is the last home meeting of the season. It’s the right time to bring joy to the home stands.
What about the visitors? “The Bordeaux are fighting for survival and they can win through unbelievable commitment. But on the whole, trips are very hard for them (only 13 points have been earned in 18 games).
My prediction is a draw.
