Our expert made a prediction for the match of the 24th round of the Premier League between “Aston Villa” and “Watford” that will take place on January 21.
Watford had a very good match against Tottenham Hotspur. Now many people are talking about 10 mm that did not allow the “spurs” to snatch victory, but before that Dini had not scored a penalty. Pearson’s team looks very organized. By the way, Ben Foster already has a clean sheet this season.
Aston Villa signed Pepe Reina, who, in the first match, helped to get an important point at Ameks against Brighton. In general, the “bandits” looked decent, but still from their defense does not emanate reliability. What can I say if the team only once in the last ten games in the Premier League has a clean sheet? Watford, compare to them, looks like a stone wall. The only hope of the Villa is Grilish. The cap has played, scored, assisted, and shows a game of a level much higher than his entire team. And in the absence of Wesley, he also assumed the function of the central striker.
In the last six matches, the “hornets” conceded just two goals, the “villa” – fourteen. Here you don’t even have to look into the xG table to understand who has the advantage in statistics. The form is better; defense is better, organization and discipline are better, Watford is superior in almost all aspects. “Bandits” even at home managed to suffer four defeats in six meetings of the Premier League. The last was from “City” – 1: 6. Watford is a favorite; Foster is a genius; Pearson is a brutal motivator.
Our prediction: Watford win
