Hull v Aston Villa Past Meetings

This will be the 11th competitive fixture between the two clubs, with Villa comfortably ahead on the head-to-head record with seven wins compared to just one for Hull.

However, that sole Villa loss came in their last trip to Humberside as Hull won the top-flight clash 2-0 thanks to goals from Nikica Jelavic and Dame N’Doye.

The league meeting earlier in the campaign at Villa Park finished 1-1, with Jarrod Bowen cancelling out Gabriel Agbonlahor’s early opener for the hosts.


Hull v Aston Villa Stats

– Hull languish in 18th place in the Championship – just four positions and six points above the relegation zone.

– 25 of City’s 39 points have come at the KCOM Stadium – the 18th strongest home record in the division.

– The Tigers have won two of their last three matches, with victories over Norwich and Ipswich being followed up by a disappointing 3-0 loss at Birmingham.

– Villa sit fourth in the standings but have the division’s sixth best away record – with 30 points from their 19 games on the road – only nine points fewer than Hull have won all season.

– The recent back-to-back defeats to QPR and Bolton – both in the lower half of the standings – ended a run of three straight victories for Villa, which included a 4-1 thumping of league leaders Wolves the previous week.


Hull v Aston Villa Team News

Hull will continue with their 4-2-3-1 line-up which is headed by Abel Hernandez and flanked by Harry Wilson and Jarrod Bowen, although Nouha Dicko and Fraizer Campbell are both pushing for places.

Villa are expected to continue to revert back to their 4-4-2 formation with Scott Hogan coming back in to partner Lewis Grabban in the attack, while Manchester United loanee Axel Tuanzebe and midfielder Mile Jedinak are among those pushing for starts.


Reason for Hull v Aston Villa Bets

This is – typically for the ever-competitive EFL Championship league – a tough game to call, with neither side showing much strong recent form.

Aston Villa remain in the top four but their two recent damaging defeats may well put automatic promotion to the English Premier League beyond them this season – they are seven points off second-placed Cardiff, who have a game in hand.

The Tigers suffered a surprising 3-0 loss at Villa’s city neighbours Birmingham City last time out and the threat of relegation still exists for Nigel Adkins’s men.

However, despite having inferior quality to manager Steve Bruce’s Aston Villa squad they have slightly stronger recent form and also possess the home advantage, making a draw the quite likely outcome here.

13 goals have flown in across Hull’s last three games – their strength lies in attack – while Villa are the league’s third highest scorers, so we should expect some goals in this game.

Beat The Drop

Who can take part?

  • The promotion is available for new and existing customers with registered Paddy Power accounts, aged 18 or over.

How and when can I qualify?

  • Select your stake and the number of questions you want to answer (max ticket £50). You will then be given a pot of money to bet with (the size of that pot will depend on your stake and the number of questions which you have chosen to answer).
  • From those which are being offered, simply choose your first fixture and the market on which you wish to bet. You can then either split your pot, or go all the way in, on that question. Repeat this process until you have answered all of your questions.
  • Any money left in the pot after all the questions have been answered is yours to keep.

What can I win?

  • The maximum winnings from any single game (i.e. where a £50 ticket is selected and the maximum number of questions is chosen) is £1,000,000.
  • The size of the pot (i.e. your potential winnings) is determined by the number of questions you select and the ticket cost.

When will I get my prize?

  • Cash will be credited automatically to your account.

What else do I need to know?

  • This is a Sportsbook (i.e. a fixed odds) product.
  • The maximum ticket price per game is £50.
  • Tickets are only valid for sixty days from the time you answered your last question. If this time elapses and a game is not completed, you will be entitled to claim an amount which is calculated by halving the pot (i.e. as it stands at the lapse of the sixty-day period) for every remaining question. For example, if you have£100 in the pot with two rounds to play, you will be entitled to claim £25 (because the remaining £100 will be notionally halved and the £50 which remains after that will then be notionally halved again).  Please note that, because you have allowed the game to lapse, you will not automatically be credited with this amount but will be entitled to claim it by contacting our customer services team.
