Brentford v Aston Villa Past Meetings

This will be just the 12th ever head-to-head between these two sides, with just three of the previous games coming since the turn of the millennium. Their most recent meeting was earlier this season, the teams playing out a drab 0-0 draw in September.

 

Last season, The Bees secured an impressive 3-0 home win thanks to a brace from Lasse Vibe. They drew the game at Villa Park 1-1


Norwich City v Brentford Stats

Brentford have won three of their 11 home matches this season, losing just once.

Over 2.5 goals has happened in 45% of Brentford’s home matches this season, and in 45% of Villa’s away matches.

 


Brentford v Aston Villa Team News

Lasse Vibe has been out of action in recent games due to a knock, and he’s a doubt again for this one. Neal Maupay could continue up top.

 

Villa meanwhile are without skipper John Terry, Henri Lansbury, Andre Green, Jonathan Kodjia and Chris Samba.


Reason for Brentford v Aston Villa Bets

Aston Villa looked like they were building up some speed ahead of the hectic Christmas period, but a loss to fellow promotion chasers Derby threw a spanner in the works. They’re still very much in the race for promotion, and this game against mid-table Brentford is one they really need to be winning.

The Bees have put in some impressive performances this season, and whilst they’ve made themselves difficult to beat, they’ve drawn far too many games. Whilst they’ve only lost once at Griffin Park this season, they’ve drawn 10 out of 22 league matches so far this campaign.

Injuries to both of these side’s main strikers – Lasse Vibe and Jonathan Kodija – means that they’re relying on other players to step up, and one man that Villa manager Steve Bruce has called upon is ex-Bee Scott Hogan. The £12m signing is yet to prove his worth at his new club after his move, but Kodija’s injury means extended game time. He could be an interesting bet as an anytime scorer at 13/2 with Paddy Power, as he returns to the stadium he used to call home.

Whilst this is bound to be a tight match, Villa’s need for the points to stay with their promotion rivals should give them that added motivation during this busy schedule. Back an away win at 15/8 with Paddy Power. The Villains are generally fast starters; based on half-time scores alone they’d be fourth in the table, whilst Brentford would be down in 21st position. For that reason, back a Villa half-time/full-time win at 7/2 with Bet365.
