Aston Villa 17/10 to win against Birmingham City in this afternoon’s Championship clash
Market: Aston Villa to win against Birmingham City
Odds: 17/10 @ William Hill
It’s the Second City Derby this weekend as Aston Villa travel to St Andrews to face fierce rivals Birmingham City in the Championship. The Villans are favourites to come out on top with their stronger squad and superior recent form likely to give them the edge.
Host Birmingham are no slouches, however, sitting eighth in the Championship table with 23 points from 14 games. The Blues have suffered two defeats from their last three games, however, but their home form has been more convincing with four wins from five.
City could move up into the playoff places in the Championship with a win today but Aston Villa will be a formidable opponent. The Villans are still only 16th in the table with 17 points but they have won two of their last three games, having suffered just one defeat from nine.
Away from home, Aston Villa have won their last outing so they have momentum for the Second City Derby. A win at St Andrews would see Villa move three places up the Championship table, narrowing the deficit to Birmingham to three points, and William Hill are giving odds of 17/10 for the visitors to deliver.
