Aston Villa hosts Brentford

Aston Villa hosts Brentford in a match from the 4th round of the English Championship. Let’s examine it in our predictions football 1×2 for today.

Aston Villa are unbeaten in their first three matches for the new season. The former European champions started with two consecutive wins against Hull City and Wigan Athletic, but in the previous round they made a 1-1 draw during the visit to Ipswich Town. Jonathan Kodjia gave Villa the lead at the Portman Road, but Trevoh Chalobah equalized soon after this. Aston Villa played the whole second half with a man more on the pitch, but this didn’t help them to win the clash.

Being one of the greatest English clubs of all time, Aston Villa hope to return to the Premier League this season. They didn’t do it during the last campaign, which was a serious dissapointment for the club and the fans. Now the manager Steve Bruce knows that the club doesn’t have any other option, but to return among the best in England.

Brentford also started the new campaign pretty good. They are currently 4th in the Championship standings with 7 points won from three matches played. In its opening game Brentford beat Rotherham with 5-1. This spectacular win was followed by a 1-1 draw against Stoke City away from home. In the previous round Brentford returned to winning, beating Sheffield Wednesday with 2-0 at home. The goals were scored by Neal Maupay from a penalty kick and Ollie Watkins.

These are our predictions football 1×2 for today for the Championship game between Aston Villa and Brentford. Both teams are unbeaten so far and both are positioned in the Top 5 of the Championship standings. This promises that we are going to witness a very competitive game between two teams who started the new campaign pretty well.
