Aston Villa has performed well in the start of the new season. So far, they have won all the games and odds, including the warm-up match, and they have defeated Manchester United. Aston Villa not only have stable offense, scoring averaging 2 goals per game, and have many clean sheets. The quality and stability of Aston Villa’s defense are also excellent.
Stoke City is a team of England Championship. Last season, they only ranked in the middle and lower reaches of the league and missed the chance to promote. In the new season, although Stoke City have only lost one match so far, their win rate is not very high. They did not score in half of the games, showing many problems with their attacking. They are unlikely to beat the Premier League team this time.
For now, although the two teams used to be members of the Premier League, they are not what they used to be. The handicap first odds was opened to Aston Villa -0.75 goal with appropriate return. Combining with the trend of the odds, I expect Aston Villa to win and promote.
Pick: Aston Villa -0.75
Prediction: Aston Villa wins
Goal Prediction: 2, 3
Score Prediction: 2-0, 2-1
