Key Stats

  • Aston Villa are unbeaten in their last four competitive and non-competitive games against Brentford, picking up two wins and two draws. The hosts have won two of their last four in all competitions, while the Bees haven't tasted victory in any of their last eight fixtures.
  • Brentford have only failed to score in one of their last six outings and Aston Villa have scored at least two goals in each of their last two victories in league and cup, so we're backing a 2-1 win for the hosts on Saturday.
  • Former Brentford star Ollie Watkins top scores for Aston Villa this season with 16 league goals and should return to the starting lineup this weekend after missing the Man City game with a knock.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Villa backed to beat Brentford

  • HOME: 4/6 (1.67) – 60%
  • DRAW: 10/3 (4.33) – 23.1%
  • AWAY: 4/1 (5.00) – 20%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Aston Villa are the expected winners of this game with a probability of 60%, and we tend to agree with the bookmakers on this one.

Despite losing 4-1 to Man City in midweek, Aston Villa head into this match as the form favourite with two wins, two draws and two defeats from their last six fixtures. Brentford drew 0-0 with Brighton last time out and have lost three and drawn three of their last six in the league.

Player to watch – John McGinn

John McGinn wasn't available for Aston Villa's trip to Man City in midweek due to a suspension but the Scottish international returns from the Brentford game and we're backing him to make a big difference.

McGinn has been fantastic ever since he joined Aston Villa, providing energy, a few goals and plenty of tough tackles in the heart of the midfield.

Villa's driving force from midfield

This season, McGinn has chipped in with six league goals, all of which have arrived first in games. We're backing McGinn to drive Aston Villa to victory this weekend against a low on confidence Brentford side.
