Aston Villa vs Blackburn Match Preview
Aston Villa have taken 13 points from the list 15 on offer to shoot up the table and sit sixth ahead of this fixture. Just four points separate seven teams from fifth down to 11thso it is all to play for.
At Villa Park, the Midlands side have won their last two and lost just one of the previous seven in the league. All but one of their last 11 at their own place have gone over 2.5 goals with eight of the last 11 going over 3.5.
Blackburn went into the international break in 16thhaving taken just four points from their last nine fixtures. A strong start to the season means they should be okay as they sit 11 points above the relegation places.
Away from Ewood Park, Rovers are without a victory in their last five with four of these ending in a defeat. Each of their last five on the road have seen both teams score and gone over 2.5 goals.
The home side should win this one but given the short odds, I would look to find a way to enhance the price. The Lancashire outfit have netted 13 times in their last eight on the road and seem capable of scoring here so take Villa to win and both teams to score.
Over 2.5 goals is covered but three of the last five for Blackburn and eight of the last 11 for Villa at this ground have gone over 3.5 goals so that looks worth an interest.
