Aston Villa v Wolves Past Meetings

This will be the 83rd competitive fixture between the two clubs, with Villa ahead on the head-to-head record with 35 wins compared to Wolves’s 29.

However, Wolves have won each of the last two meetings between the sides including a 2-0 victory at Molineux earlier in the campaign, when Diogo Jota and Leo Bonatini first found the net.

Wolves are unbeaten in four against Villa and have not lost in any of their last four trips to Villa Park.


Aston Villa v Wolves Stats

Villa sit third in the standings and have the division’s third best home record, with 10 wins and just one defeat from their 17 outings at Villa Park in the league.

However, Wolves have the league’s best away record – with 11 wins and 37 points accumulated on the road this season.

Villa have won nine of their last 11 league matches in a run which has also seen them keep six clean sheets.

Wolves had gone three matches without a win before the midweek 3-0 victory at Leeds – a result which saw them move six points clear of Cardiff City in second and ten clear of third-placed Villa.


Aston Villa v Wolves Team News

Villa are expected to continue to deploy their 4-4-2 formation with Scott Hogan and Lewis Grabban leading the line while Manchester United loanee Axel Tuanzebe and midfielder Mile Jedinak among those pushing for starts.

Wolves will continue with their 3-4-3 line-up which is headed by Leo Bonatini and flanked by Ivan Cavaleiro and Diogo Jota, although Helder Costa and Benik Afobe are both hopeful of starts – the latter scored from the bench in the win at Leeds.


Reason for Aston Villa v Wolves Bets

The league table reflects the fact that these are two of the top three sides in the division and any game between them will be closely fought.

A draw is the most likely outcome as Wolves have the higher quality player and are strong on the road, to negate Villa’s home advantage and the slightly superior recent form of Steve Bruce’s side.

Villa have kept clean sheets in over half of their last 11 league games while Wolves have the strongest defensive record in the division, with just 28 goals conceded in 35 matches.

This is expected to be another tight, low-scoring affair with both sides seeing a draw as a thoroughly decent result and both teams are stronger in defence than attack.
