Aston Villa vs Man City Predictions and Betting Tips
Aston Villa welcomes the league leaders to the Villa Park this Tuesday with the hope of handing the Cityzens their second consecutive loss following last weekend’s FA Cup semifinal exit. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
Manchester City have been absolutely dominant in this fixture in recent seasons with six victories on the bounce. In their most recent encounter, late goals from Silva and Gundogan were more than enough as Pep’s troops ran out 2-0 winners.
Dip in form for the Villains
Dean Smith’ side gave only picked up 8 points from a possible 24 after losing Jack Grealish to injury. This dip in form has caused them to go down into the bottom half as they currently sit in 11th. In their most recent game against Liverpool, a late strike from Trent Alexander-Arnold broke Villa hearts as the Reds narrowly ran out 2-1 victors. Can Dean Smith’s troops manage to hold off the Cityzens in a similar manner?
City’s dream of quadruple ends
Prior to last weekend, it was looking like City would become the first English team to win the quadruple. Tuchel’s revolution declined to that philosophy as the Blues knocked out Manchester City courtesy of a solitary goal from Hakim Ziyech. A treble is still in their sights, however, and it is then left to see if they can achieve this feat.

City would certainly be looking to get back to winning ways following consecutive domestic losses to Leeds and Chelsea and given that Villa would once again be without their best player, we expect the Manchester-based outfit does just that on their road to Premier League glory.
