Aston Villa VS Norwich: Match preview
An important match for both teams, as they are in the relegation zone, so we don’t see much difference between them. In this game, the hosts may be in a slight advantage solely because of their fans who do not want to disappoint, but given the game shown so far, the question is whether their fans expect anything from this season. Still, the season is long, and this may be an opportunity for both teams to turn their luck around and finally play a little better.
Aston Villa team news:
Some time ago things looked completely different with Villa looking like she was having a good season. This team has been matched with Southampton in the Premier League in a previous match, making it 1 – 3.
Villa will miss the Mings, their best defender, as well as McGinn, one of the best midfielders in that game against Southampton. This was a match where Villa looked really open, so they couldn’t defend themselves, which is logical when playing offensively, especially when you have one of the worst defenses in the league.
They were outplayed in that match and now have four straight defeats in the league. We truly believe that they are the worst team in terms of defense.
Probable lineup: Heaton; Guilbert, Engels, Hause, Targett; Luiz, Hourihane; Kodjia, Grealish, Trezeguet; Wesley.
Norwich team news:
Norwich is struggling with injuries and form, and they don’t look very good until they can retain the lead when they lead in a match. They had a good halftime performance against the Wolves.
Additionally, they were even slightly better than Leicester at some points. They are playing well, but they need to be a little more active in the transfer market this winter if they want to stay in the league.
Norwich is in the category of defense in the same place where Villa is. For us, these two clubs are the main contenders for relegation at the moment, but Norwich has played a bit better in the last five games.
Probable lineup: Krul; Aarons, Zimmermann, Hanley, Byram; Tettey, Trybull; Buendia, McLean, Cantwell; Pukki.
We don’t think Villa will be as open as they were in the last match, because this is a big pressure game for them. We think they will play a lot more cautiously and expect a tough game, at least by Aston Villa.
Still, Norwich will not come only to defend themselves, but also to score and win if possible.
