Aston Villa vs Arsenal Prediction and Betting Preview 21 July 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-0
Never considered contenders for promotion, Aston Villa shocked the whole footballing world by putting forth strong displays to show their credentials as Premier League-worthy outfits last season. Despite missing out on automatic qualification, the Villa finished fifth to book a ticket to the playoffs.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 37
Venue: Villa Park (Birmingham)
Surprisingly, Aston Villa steamrolled through the playoff fixtures to move up a notch to the Premier League. It was a red-letter day in Birmingham as the club finally returned to the English top-flight after an extended hiatus from the competition.

As the league took off, the Lions must have been pumped to achieve their least aim, escaping relegation at the end of the season. Well, things have not panned out so well for Aston Villa with the club failing to hit the high marks they set prior to the campaign.

With a measly 31 points from 36 games, the Villa currently sit 17th on the standings and are in danger of getting relegated. With two games left to play, four points over these fixtures should be enough to guarantee PL survival, beginning with a positive result against Arsenal on Tuesday night.

Aston Villa vs Arsenal Team News
In truth, head coach Dean Smith cannot be faulted for his side’s horrendous showings this term. With the club failing to provide him with the needed resources to recruit players during the summer, Nassef Sawiris and co. are simply now paying the price for their poor decision-making.

In dire need of points, Aston Villa made a trip to Goodison Park to take on underwhelming side Everton on the last matchday. Onlookers must have been pretty bored as they watched these two sides jostle for the ball without creating any gilt-edged chances.

Despite the drabness of the match, one thing enviable was both team’s clinical nature in front of goal. Either side managing a single shot-on-target throughout the game, they made the most of their singular opportunities, registering a goal apiece to post a 1-1 score-line on the board.
Arsenal, on the other hand, have enjoyed some form of resurgence in recent weeks. Scheduled to take on league champions Liverpool last time out, they were huge underdogs, and expected to be thrown under the bus with ease.

However, the Gunners shocked everyone with their performance, particularly in the first-half. Lacazette and Nelson got on the scoresheet to send Arsenal on the right path to victory. The 2-1 win was well greeted by fans as it underlined the club’s progress since Arteta’s appointment as manager.

For this fixture, Arsenal are clear favorites for victory. Following the league restart, the club endured a rough patch where they were humiliated by Man City and most notably, Brighton. But there has been a recent spark at the Emirates that has ignited a rejuvenation for the Gunners.

They are in unbelievable form at the moment, losing just one of their previous eight fixtures across all competitions. Noteworthily, their last two fixtures saw them dispatch Liverpool and Man City in superb fashion. With those wins, the Gunners will be buzzing ahead of this game.

In sharp contrast, Aston Villa are in danger of joining Norwich City on their trip back to the Championship. The Villa are still yet to register a single win since Project Restart.

Aston Villa vs Arsenal Predictions

Arsenal are pushing for a Europa League place finish and will be gunning for another win here to extend their winning streak to three on the bounce. Just three points off the cut for continental qualification, wins from their remaining two fixtures should guarantee them European football.

The opposing number Aston Villa are one of the worst sides in the league and are largely bereft of confidence. They are very likely to be dispatched here. As such, an ‘Arsenal win to nil’ is in order.
