Aston Villa 1/2 to beat Walsall in Wednesday’s friendly matchup
Market: Aston Villa win
Odds: 1/2 @ Bet 365
Looking to carry on their impressive run during pre-season, Aston Villa will make the trip to Walsall on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, after enduring a very worrying campaign and suffering relegation from League One last season, Walsall have continued to struggle during pre-season. In their 46 domestic matches last season, they managed to record just 12 victories and also finished three points adrift of safety. As for their recent run of results during pre-season, the Reds suffered a 2-1 loss away at Notts County in their last appearance and have now won just one of their four pre-season outings. Also winning just two of their last 13 matches across all competitions, they have also won just one of their last five matches on home soil.
As for the visitors, after securing a Premier League return via the play-offs last season, Aston Villa have continued to shine during pre-season. Including picking up a 1-0 win away at Shrewsbury last time out, the Clarets are now enjoying a five-match winning run across all competitions and it is also worth noting that they have now recorded three clean sheets in their last four appearances. Also now enjoying a 10-match unbeaten run of their travels, Wednesday’s guests should be confident of extending their winning run when they make the trip to a struggling Walsall in midweek.
