Venue: Villa Park, Birmingham

Aston Villa v Derby County: Team News

Derby County completed an amazing second-half comeback on Tuesday evening when they dispatched the second-placed Cardiff City after conceding an early opener. The win helped the Rams break back into the top six in the league ladder and they now have the pole position over Millwall in the battle for the playoffs spots.

Nevertheless, Gary Rowett and his men could easily lose it at the weekend as they have a very tough trip to Birmingham to make. The opposition is the third-placed Aston Villa who look to have found the splendid run of form once again.

The Lions won three straight league games without shipping a goal along the way. They were especially impressive last weekend trashing Ipswich Town 0-4 away at Portman Road Stadium. Steve Bruce’s troops are just four points below Cardiff City in second and the direct promotion is still achievable with two games left to play.

Aston Villa v Derby County: Head to Head Stats

It is interesting to note that none of last six head to head games saw goals at both ends.

Aston Villa have been the dominant force in matches at Villa Park over the history.

The Lions won 27, drew 9 and lost only 8 of 44 home clashes against the Rams.

Derby, however, came on top when the two sides met this season at iPro Stadium (2-0).

Aston Villa v Derby County: Prediction

Winter’s acquisition Lewis Grabban has been in good touch lately. The former Sunderland’s striker bagged three goals in last two league wins, including two in the mentioned thumping of the Tractor Boys last time out. Since Derby are generally pretty easy to break down, we do believe that backing Grabban to score anytime is a wise idea. You can take this bet at the odds of 13/10 (2.30).  

The Rams have generally been struggling badly of late and they will come into this on the back of two straight league defeats on the road. Particularly painful was the one to the likes of Burton Albion on the previous travel. Villa, on the other side, are very tough to beat in their own backyard and we do find the value in backing the home win at the 19/20 (1.95) odds.
