Aston Villa v Watford betting tips – A solitary point awaits the Villans
Bottom placed Aston Villa winless in their last twelve Premier League games
November 27th, 2015
It looked as though Aston Villa’s fortunes had improved when they managed a point against league leaders Manchester City in early November and that goal-less draw at home saw new manager Remi Garde take the hot-seat in a move which instilled hope in the Villa faithful.
Garde couldn’t build on that hard-fought point however and the following outing saw a dismal performance which resulted in a 4-0 thumping against Everton.
Indeed, with a boss such as Garde at the helm, the prospects should be good for Villa and they could go from strength to strength. Nevertheless, they need to move clear of the relegation zone first and this is looking increasingly unlikely the further through the season we get.
Villa have now failed to win in their last twelve league games with ten defeats and two draws, therefore Garde will be in no doubt as to the tough task ahead of him. One way of improving things would be scoring more goals at home, an obvious statement perhaps but one indicative of the side’s problems at Villa Park where they have failed to find the back of the net in the last four games. An Aston Villa win against Watford is 7/4 with BetVictor.
Watford have been keeping rather quiet since the start of the campaign and they have made steady progress with some consistency lifting them to 13th in the table, the best league position of the newly promoted sides this season.
With just two defeats in their last seven games away from Vicarage Road, they will be confident of clinching the points against a woeful Villa side on Saturday, although manager Quique Sanchez Flores will be less than pleased about losing the last two league games by single goals to both Leicester City and Manchester United.
Should the Hornets overcome Villa this weekend, they can then look forward to a couple of winnable outings against Sunderland and Norwich City, therefore they might be moving ever closer to a mid-table position heading towards the festive period, although we feel that a share of the spoils is the most likely outcome between these sides on Saturday afternoon. Back the match to end in stalemate at 23/10 with Bet365.
