Aston Villa v Newcastle United Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 8.15pm UK Time, Tuesday 30th January 2024

 

Despite experiencing a downturn in results over recent weeks, Aston Villa still sit in the Premier League top four while opponents Newcastle United could drop into the bottom half of the table should they lose at Villa Park on Tuesday evening.

Goals have been hard to come by for Aston Villa since the turn of the year, the West Midlands side having found the back of the net just once in their three competitive outings of 2024, this being in a 1-0 win over Championship side Middlesbrough in the FA Cup. Prior to this, the Villans had added to the scoreline in each of their previous twelve games across competitions, this run including excellent back-to-back 1-0 wins over Manchester City and Arsenal in the Premier League.

The West Midlands outfit still sit in the top four of the Premier League table and they will be eager to further enhance their chances of staying there by taking all three points against Newcastle United in their midweek outing. Villa boss Unai Emery has moulded together an attacking side but much of their recent rise has been based on defensive solidity with no Premier League side leaking more before the break.

Having thrashed Aston Villa to the tune of 5-1 in the reverse fixture earlier in the campaign, Newcastle United will be going all-out to complete the double over their opponents this week. Nevertheless, the Magpies head into this match having lost each of their last four Premier League outings and six of their last seven. Newcastle have the second-worst record on the road in the top-flight this season with just five points collected away from home and it’s hard envisaging them getting a positive result here.

It’s fair to say that neither Aston Villa nor Newcastle United have been at their best of late with the Magpies’ back four being regularly exploited and Villa’s goal count grinding to a halt. On that basis and the fact that there is little to choose between the sides, we’ll be siding with the spoils being shared in what looks set to be a close contest.
