West Brom v Aston Villa Championship Preview, 14th May 8.00pm

This tie is still very much in the balance after the Villains took a 2-1 home win in the first leg of this semi-final tie. Will that be enough for them to defend as they head out to the Hawthorns? West Brom have been carrying some massively strong home form recently and may well be able to mount a fightback in this Midlands derby. Read our West Brom v Aston Villa betting tips for more.

West Brom News and Form

The Baggies have some home form behind them and that away goal in the first leg could prove to be crucial. It would have been a long way back without that one. West Brom have won their last five home games in a row, undefeated in seven now at the Hawthorns. It’s not just that, but they have been on fire in front of goal as well. Albion have netted at least two goals in each of their last five home games, so have enough in their current scoring form to turn this tie around. Each of the last five games played at the Hawthorns have ended up going over 2.5 goals. West Brom scored 68% of their home goals in the second half of matches but did also conceded 65% of goals after the break.

West Brom averaged 2.3 goals per home game this season, with 65% of games there making it over 2.5 goals. What should make this exciting is that they didn’t particularly have a great season of things in defence. West Brom only managed a clean sheet in 13% of their home games this season. That led to 83% of fixtures at the Hawthorns seeing both teams score in the game. Of the twelve home wins that West Brom took during the season, eight of them were by a margin of at least two goals.

Aston Villa News and Form

The Villains are on a fantastic run of seven matches undefeated away from home. It has been brilliant stuff from them, with Villa picking up a win in five of those seven games. That was a five-match away winning streak that they had been on before they picked up a 1-1 draw at Leeds in their final away game of the regular season. The Villains though did fail to take an away win in any of their four games against the teams who finished above them (D2 L2). One of those was a 2-2 draw at West Brom, which would suit them just fine if it happened again. The overall away form of Villa during the regular season was W9 D8 L6.

Villa averaged 1.4 goals per away game, conceding at just over a goal per game. Of the wins that they took, six of the nine were by a margin of at least two goals. Aston Villa are on seven match scoring streak on their travels, scoring in each of their last fourteen games played now after the first leg of this semi-final. The Villains were sat level at the break in 14 of their 23 away games for the season. They produced 66% of their away goals in the second half of matches. Aston Villa finished the regular season as the third highest scorers in the Premier League games. One of the two teams to score more was West Brom.

Who will win – West Brom v Aston Villa Predictions

West Brom do have the home form to get themselves back into this tie, with plenty of goals having been put on the scoreboard recently at the Hawthorns. However, Villa are a threat and it’s not going to be that easy for the home side. West Brom to win by a one-goal margin.

West Brom News and Form

West Brom dropped points in a home draw against Brentford last weekend at the Hawthorns. They had been on a three-match winning streak before that. The draw against Brentford also left them with a W6 D2 L2 record at the Hawthorns this term in the second tier. West Brom are the current top scorers in the Championship and on home soil they have come up with an average of 2.7 goals per game. It has played a big part in 70% of their home games going over the 2.5 goal line. While their scoring has been strong, they have struggled to earn clean sheets having picked up just the one on home soil all season long. They don’t have a clean sheet in any of their last five home league fixtures. West Brom have scored in each of their ten home fixtures this term though.

Home and away they have no clean sheet in eleven league games. 74% of West Brom’s home goals this season have been scored in the second half of matches. They have been level at the half time break in half of their ten home games this season, while they have come up the first goal in all but three of their home fixtures. With Villa’s form on the rise, a home win in this one would see the Baggies at least keep a positive game between themselves and their rivals. West Brom are four points clear of the Villains going into the game.

Aston Villa News and Form

Villa took an impressive 3-0 win at Middlesbrough last weekend and that extended some terrific form which Dean Smith’s men have been on lately. After all their struggles this season they have hit top gear and have gone to a W4 D1 record in their last five games. That has seem them head into the weekend now just three points outside of the top six. Out on the road the Villains have produced a W3 D3 L4 record so far. The notable feature about their upturn in form is their high-scoring output. They have fired off 17 goals in their last five league games now. Aston Villa have produced at least two goals in each of their last five games

That impressive run of scoring form has helped them move to an average of 1.5 goals scored per away game this term. 60% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals and also a factor in that has been the fact that Villains have only pikced up the two clean sheets away from home so far.The positive is, is that those two clean sheets have been in their last two league away games at Derby and Middlesbrough, two of the current top seven. The Villains have been level at the halftime break in six of their ten road games and 60% of villa’s away goals this season have been after the halftime break. Both teams have scored in 70% of Aston Villa’s away games and they have scored the opening goal in five of their ten road games.

Who will win – West Brom v Aston Villa Predictions

Aston Villa have done so well in front of goal lately and have certainly started to put things together so well. They will face a stern test at the Hawthorns though and we are going to shade things towards the Baggies who have come back into form well. West Brom to win by a one-goal margin.

Aston Villa

West Brom v Aston Villa Premier League, 23rd January

This probably isn’t going to the most appealing game on the Premier League fixture list on the weekend because it doesn’t have the promise of many goals. Villa are still heavily mired in a relegation fight for their lives, heading into the weekend still a good ten points away from safety. But there has been a positive turn from them in the last week or so, but then the Baggies aren’t a side who give up too much on home soil and they have gone unbeaten in their last five home games against the Villains in the top flight. West Brom are 21/20 for the win with the draw at 23/10 and Aston Villa at 13/5.

0-0 bore draw insurance probably needs to be taken on this one and you can take some at online betting site Bet365.

Key Stats – West Brom v Aston Villa

Aston Villa have failed to win any of their last ten away games in the top flight

West Brom v Aston Villa Betting Tips

A battle in the West Midlands then for Saturday. The Baggies have won just two of their last nine Premier League matches (D4 L3) which isn’t particularly great. They certainly aren’t completely on top of their game at the moment and the best thing that they have going for them appears to be a bit of resiliency. The Baggies have won their last two home matches in the top flight though and each of their four league wins that they have recorded at the Hawthorns this season have all been by a one goal margin. You can back a West Brom to win by a one goal margin option for a  price of 5/2 and there could be big value in that. All four of West Brom’s wins in this fixture have been by a one-goal margin (2 x 1-0, 2 x 2-1) and the Baggies are unbeaten in their last five home games in the top flight against Aston Villa.

Further on from that, eight of the last 10 Premier League matches played at the Hawthorns have been won by a single goal margin (West Brom have W4 L4) with the other two matches ending as draws. So you can surely take something from that. It is probably worth looking under 2.5 goals as well for the match up because neither of them look a prolific scoring outfit. Under 2.5 goals is a price of 8/15 with online betting site Bet365. In the anytime goalscorer market, West Brom’s Salomon Rondon, who showed some finishing class in their midweek FA Cup replay against Bristol City, is 7/4 anytime goalscorer favourite, with Saido Berahino at 2/1. The Baggies took a 1-0 win at Villa Park earlier in the season thanks to a goal from Berahino just before the break.

Aston Villa have won two matches recently, a huge upturn in form from them. one was a Premier League win over Crystal Palace, the other an FA Cup replay at home against League Two side Wycombe Wanderers. Still, wins are wins. Villa are on a two match unbeaten streak in the top flight now following the win over Palace and a draw against Leicester last time out. They haven’t managed to go three consecutive top flight matches without a loss this term though. While we’ve been talking about one goal margins, here’s another: all seven of Aston Villa’s wins against West Brom have been by a one-goal margin, six of them by a 2-1 scoreline. Anyone tempted to an Aston Villa 2-1 win then at 14/1? Probably not as the Villains have taken just two points from their last 30 available out on the road in the Premier League.

Who will win – West Brom v Aston Villa Predictions

Scratching out wins at home is vastly different to trying to pick them up on the road. Villa are in shocking away form with eight defeats in their last ten away from home and they have conceded at an average of almost 2.5 goals per game on the road this season. There should be enough of an opportunity for the Baggies to pick up the home win and complete the season double over the Villains. Don’t expect too many goals though.

West Brom

West Brom v Aston Villa Betting Preview
The Baggies go into this match unbeaten in their last four Premier League meetings against Villa. Should the Baggies, who have lost three in a row in the league now, keep their run against the Villains going, further trouble could be piled in their opponents. Paul Lambert’s Villa are in the drop zone and slumping badly. Is there any escape for them in this massively troubled season for one of the league’s founding clubs?

West Brom 7/10, Draw 11/4, Aston Villa 4/1

West Brom v Aston Villa Recommended Bet:
There is little surprise that the Baggies go as firm favourites for this one. That is in spite of their own form hitting the rocks lately. After showing some immense form at The Hawthorns at the start of the season, West Brom have now won just one of their last five (losing three). Their defensive tightness just isn’t there and they haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last seven matches in all competitions. Defeats against Manchester United, West Brom and Reading last week have put the skids on a good season for Steve Clarke in his first full managerial job. The Baggies have been scoring well enough, they just can’t keep anything out of their own net. The only time that West Brom failed to score in their last five matches was at Old Trafford, which is forgivable.

Even with West Brom’s slump in form, they still have a good home record for the season, winning seven, drawing one and losing three. The have scored at a rate of 1.5 goals per game at The Hawthorns this term and they have conceded at a rate of under a goal per game. West Brom have been pretty good this season in taking the leading, scoring first in 12 of their 22 matches and leading at half time in seven of their games. They are unbeaten in their last four against Villa now, and there has been six draws in 13 EPL meetings in this fixture. A massive trend which is going to be worth considering is that all seven victories in the meetings have come by a 2-1 scoreline. The Baggies have lost six and won just two of their last eight in the league, but they should be in a position to deal another blow to the villains.

Aston Villa have won just two of their last 19 Premier League away matches, losing ten of them. So no great hope of them taking a victory. Having been lumped into the relegation zone, things have gotten very real for VIlla, but with just a point from the last twelve available, signs of recovery have been sparse .Scoring goals remains a massive problem for them, however, interestingly they have scored five away goals in their last three away matches, which is the same tally that they had managed in their previous 13 matches on the road. Aston Villa have scored just nine away goals this season and they have conceded at a rate of over two goals per game. It’s been a tough winter for them, taking hammerings against Chelsea, Spurs and Wigan in the league.

A point at Swansea offered some hope, but then they went and lost at home to Southampton, albeit by a controversial spot kick. Anyway, it means that they have failed to score in four of their last five league matches now, conceding eighteen in that sequence. Falling apart in the second half has been a big feature of their season, conceding 71% of all of their goals after the half time break in matches. This is their lowest ever points haul after 22 matches in a Premier League season and just to pour on the misery, they have won just one of their last twelve Midlands derbies as well. Things don’t look good for Villa and West Brom have the superior firepower. May be worth looking at a Draw/West Brom Half Time/Full Time bet for a price of 4/1 with online bookmaker Sportingbet.

West Brom v Aston Villa Prediction 28th April 2012

West Brom Albion

West Brom V Aston Villa

West Brom Preview: The Baggies look as if they are finishing the season on a high with back to back wins. They have now won three of their last four, and their last match will have been a big feather in the cap of boss Roy Hodgson. The former Liverpool boss saw his West Brom side grab a 1-0 at Anfield, when Peter Odemwingie netted the only goal of the game. Yes, West Brom were totally outplayed and their goal led a charmed life, but it dug the knife into Liverpool’s league season, just that bit deeper. That was West Brom’s second 1-0 win in a row now in the league, and the three wins they have picked up in their last four games have all been with clean sheets too. So the tidy football is being backed up by a fairly steady defence at the moment. There is room for improvement at the back, because they still concede a lot of chances, but they are getting through matches. The Baggies are one of many in mid-table who are fighting for a top ten finish.

Marc Antoine-Fortune could be back in action, but will likely start off the bench, as Peter Odemwingie will most likely get the nod to start after his heroics at Anfield. West Brom have been good at home and that may heap more pressure on Aston Villa. The Baggies have four home wins from their last five matches now, and again, all of those wins have come with a clean sheet in tow. West Brom aren’t a high scoring side, but their defensive work is covering up for that. They have scored 19 home goals and conceded 19 home goals this season, but have kept clean sheets in a very healthy 41% of their home matches. Overall, West Brom have a W6 D2 L9 record at home for the season, but they have picked up the pace at the Hawthorns very well recently. There should just be the extra quality up front from West Brom to see off Villa, and West Brom’s defence could lay the platform for the win.

Aston Villa Preview: Alex McLeish’s men actually put in a decent performance midweek against Bolton at Villa Park. However, it ended up being another defeat for them. Villa did most things quite well, all except taking chances in front of goal, and they paid for it. Aston Villa are without a win in seven league matches now, and are just three points clear of the relegation zone. If Villa lose, they could be in a tense battle during their remaining two matches after the West Brom game. While their own form makes for some depressing reading, they will also be nervously looking over their shoulder and seeing the teams beneath them picking up crucial wins. That is something Villa just can’t seem to do at the moment. While West Brom are limited up front, Villa are even worse off because they just haven’t got the strike power. They may be a team worth backing for a draw, as their away record reads W3 D9 L5 this season, and they have drawn three of their last five. Villa though are without an away win in their last road trips and have only netted twice in the last five.

Odds: West Brom 11/10, Draw 12/5, Aston Villa 5/2 at BetFair

Form (most recent result last): West Brom LWLWW, Aston Villa DDLDL

Stat Attack:
Aston Villa have won only two league matches in 2012
West Brom have only won two of eleven meetings against Villa in the league, those two wins have come in the last two games against them though.
Aston Villa have won only won of their last thirteen matches
46% of the goals that Villa have conceded have come from set pieces

Recommended Bet: Well, Villa don’t’ give much away, but they aren’t a particularly strong team. Their passing was woeful against Bolton in the week, and chances created were wasted. The Baggies are the stronger of the two sides and could earn their record points tally for a season in the Premier League with a win. A West Brom -0.75 Asian Handicap for 11/8 at Bet365 looks value.

Premiership: West Brom V Aston Villa – Saturday, 30 April 2011

Premiership Betting


West Brom V Aston Villa

Date & Kick-Off: Saturday, 30 April 2011 – 15:00 (GMT)
Venue: The Hawthorns

It has been well documented that 40-points is generally enough for any team in the Barclay’s Premier League to avoid relegation, and so both Aston Villa and West Brom, who have 40 and 41 points respectively, should be safe. But this has been such an unpredictable season, where even the smallest teams have taken points off of the so called ’elite’, so it’s important both camps guard against complacency in the closing stages as it may only take one more win to consolidate their position in the top-flight of English football.

If anything, this is an intriguing battle between two reinvigorated neighbours who appear to have done enough to wrap up survival – though one more win would complete the formalities.

Just one defeat in nine has helped the Baggies move onto 40-points – the milestone which, more times than not, guarantees survival, as West Brom continue to thrive under the management of Roy Hodgson. Villa, though, are now unbeaten in four after a couple of wins and as many draws, and as a result are now seven-points clear of the bottom-three with 41-points to their name.

However, both recently had spanners thrown in the works. West Brom are now without a win in their last two league games while Villa could only muster a 1-1 draw at home to Stoke last weekend, this against a Potters outfit which had previously failed to register a single away point in 2011. So which, if any, will bounce back to winning ways in a fixture which has always been close to call but generally ends up going the way of the Clarets.

In the nine previous Premiership encounters, Villa have come out on top on no less than five occasions, with the outstanding four ending in stalemate. And as bizarre as it sounds, all five of Villa’s victories over the Baggies, who last recorded a league win over locals Villa way back in 1985, were by a 2-1 scoreline, including the last two meetings at The Hawthorns.

But while history would suggest another Villa triumph, the form of West Brom in general under Roy Hodgson, coupled with how effective and well organised they now are, means it’s certainly no formality. The Baggies have always been a decent passing side but Hodgson has brought some resilience to the fore which has really toughened them up as a unit, whereas Villa, who could welcome back Gerard Houllier with the Villa manager released from hospital earlier in the week, are so hit and miss. In fact, so unreliable have the Villains been this season that their current run of form of two wins and two draws is actually their best spell of the campaign.

So can West Brom capitalise on Aston Villa’s inconsistent nature to record their very first league win over their local rivals? They’ve broken several records and voodoos already this season, like recording their first win over Liverpool at the tenth attempt, so it’s by no means the impossible feat. However, they may have to break Villa’s stranglehold over them without some influential players, with the likes of Scott Carson, Steven Reid and Jerome Thomas all doubts for Roy Hodgson.

Meanwhile Villa manager Gerard Houllier, who is unlikely to make an appearance at Villa Park after only being released from hospital on Friday, has no fresh injuries and is set to once again hand the reigns to assistant manager Gary McCallister, who overseen Villa’s 1-1 draw with Stoke last Saturday which halted a two-match winning streak.

Match Pointers

Just one defeat in nine has helped West Brom climb to 12th in the table, six-points clear of the drop zone on 40-points; Aston Villa are just one position above the Baggies in 11th and are unbeaten in four.

West Brom have only lost one of their last nine, a 3-1 home reverse at the hands of the league’s most in-form side, Chelsea.

The Baggies have scored at least once in each of their previous ten matches at home.

Aston Villa have won just one of their last five league games away from home, and just three of seventeen all season.

Villa have scored at least once in their previous eight away league games.

Darren Bent has now scored four goals in his last four appearances for Villa.

West Brom have never beaten Aston Villa in a Premier League fixture.

All five of Aston Villa’s Premiership victories over West Brom have been by a 2-1 scoreline.

Betting Odds & Tips

Match Prediction: West Brom to WIN – 2.38 Bet365

After recording quick-fire wins over Newcastle and West Ham, I expected far better from Villa at the third time of asking last weekend, yet they barely mustered a 1-1 draw with unarguably the poorest travellers in the league during 2011 in Stoke. Their cause wasn’t helped by the absence of manager Gerard Houllier, but the Frenchman is unlikely to make an appearance on Saturday either, which could be a huge negative if Villa play like they did last Saturday.

In contrast, West Brom have their manager fully fit and raring to go, and it’s a massive boost that the players have instantly taken to his managerial style, despite the former Fulham and Liverpool tactician only joining the club midway through February. However, under Hodgson West Brom have been outstanding, with their football still as crisp and sharp as it was under Roberto Di Matteo only patience, a lot of organisation, and leadership have been added to form a pretty lethal outfit, one I believe will take all the beating at The Hawthorns this weekend.

Value Bet: Both Teams to Score – 1.67 Coral

West Brom have scored in all ten of their previous home league games; Villa have scored in each of their last eight away from home. Plus, seven of the nine Premiership encounters between the two have featured both teams scoring. Almost looks a steal.

Match Odds:

West Brom – 2.38 Bet365
Draw – 3.40 WilliamHill
Aston Villa – 3.20 SkyBet
