Sheffield United vs Aston Villa
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 3 March 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane.
The Blades are easily the worst team in the competition at the moment. They are placed dead last in the table, and have scored the least number of goals till now.
Moreover, they have also lost 21 of their total 26 league games till now, and need a surplus of at least 13 points to climb over the relegation cut-off. Note that they have posted a total of just 11 points so far.
Meanwhile, the Lions are one of the top-performing teams in the English top flight. They are currently placed 9th in the table, and need a surplus of just six points to get into the top-four zone – which would make them eligible to take part in the Champions League.
Do also take into account the fact that they have two matches in hand. In addition, they also have a good h2h record against this opponent over the years.
Likely, expect Aston Villa to emerge victorious this Wednesday at the Bramall Lane.
Sheffield United vs Aston Villa: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse encounter had ended in a 1-0 win for Dean Smith’s men.
- They had recorded eight of the preceding twelve overall wins.
- Since 1991, the hosts have recorded a total of just one PL win at this stadium.
- The visitors have scored two or more goals in four of the former eight encounters at this venue.
Sheffield United vs Aston Villa Prediction
Chris Wilder’s men lost 0-2 at home the last match-day, against Liverpool. In the meantime, the Lions registered a 0-1 win on the road the past game week, against Leeds.
Going on, the Blades are on a three-match losing run, and had failed to score in all these three fixtures. They have also won just four times at home this whole season, and two of these victories had come in the FA Cup, against teams from lower divisions.
In addition, Smith’s men also have a terrific h2h record against this foe over the years.
For the reasons, expect Aston Villa to post the three points on the board.
