Aston Villa vs Newcastle: what is the prediction for the match?
Aston Villa vs Newcastle. Prediction for the English Premier League match (23 January 2021)
On Saturday, January 23, in the English Premier League, the missed match of the 11th round of "Aston Villa" and "Newcastle" will take place, the prediction for which we are offering below.
The Birmingham club cannot win in the last four official matches in a row. "Manchester City" was hosting "Aston Villa" this week and "Aston" looked very good in terms of the game, but still it left with nothing. "Villains" kept a "dry" score for 80 minutes, but the "cityzens" still put the pressure on them defeating "villains" 0:2. Earlier in the Premier League, Dean Smith's guys lost to "Manchester United" (1:2) and ended in a draw with "Chelsea" (1:1), and in the FA Cup they lost to "Liverpool" (1:4).
Despite these results, it cannot be said that "Aston Villa" is in crisis now. After all, the level of the rivals during this period was really serious, and the match with the "cityzens" showed that even the situation with the coronavirus did not knock the "Birmingham" players off track.
After a series of failures, however, the chances of competing for a place in Top-4 for Dean Smith's team have significantly decreased. "Villains" are now in the 11th place in the standings and are already 14 points behind the leading "Manchester United", although they played three matches less.
It must be noted that "Aston Villa" did not play the last home matches in the best way. In the previous five matches, they managed to beat only "Crystal Palace" (3:0) in their home arena, losing three times.
John McGinn is disqualified. Mahmoud Trezeguet, Courtney House and Wesley are injured. Conor Hourihane left the club.
Upcoming Predictions for Football
"The Magpies" lost to "Arsenal" in the last match of the championship (0:3), once again confirming that the game crisis of the team has not gone anywhere. The defeat to the "Gunners" was just a continuation of Newcastle’s losing streak, which already lasts for seven matches. It must be noted, that the five of the matches ended in defeats during this period.
The weak performance of Steve Bruce's guys in attack also needs to be noted. In the last five rounds, they managed to score only one accurate shot against "Leicester", even though they lost the match 1:2.
After a series of failures, "Newcastle" began to dive to the bottom of the standings. The team is now in 15th place but still maintains a seven-point handicap above the relegation zone.
In recent away matches, "Newcastle" played extremely poorly. In the last four away matches, it lost not only to "Arsenal", but also to "Sheffield United" (0:1), "Manchester City" (0:2) and "Leeds" (2:5).
Federico Fernandez will definitely not play in the upcoming match due to injury. Allan Saint-Maximin’s participation is questionable.
Despite being the favorite, "Aston Villa" is not playing very well against "Newcastle" at home. Only once in ten previous matches "Aston Villa" could beat an opponent with a difference of more than one goal. "Villains" will play two days after the match with "Manchester City", the team has recently come out of quarantine and is hardly fully functional now. In addition, "Newcastle" is hardly inferior to the hosts in the class, and at the same time it knows how to play on counterattacks.
Our prediction is that "Newcastle" will win with a handicap (+1.5) for 1.66 on a 1xBet.
