The football teams Aston Villa and West Ham are meeting this Sunday at the English Premier League. Last time these teams met was on the 18th of August 2012, when West Ham managed a 1-0 victory against their opponents and neighbors. The football player who scored the winning goal for West Ham in the 40th minute was Kevin Nolan.
Judging by the teams’ last five head-to-head confrontations, we can notice a perfect balance: 2 victories for West Ham, 2 victories for Aston Villa and one draw. On the other hand, if I were to judge by the teams’ last five matches, none of them could boast with amazing performances. While West Ham has only one victory achieved against Swansea City this year, on the 2nd of February, one draw with QPR and 3 defeats suffered in front of Fulham (3-1), Arsenal (5-1) and Manchester United (1-0), Aston Villa has one 2-1 victory over Bradford, 2 draws with Everton (3-3) and West Bromwich (2-2) and 2 lost matches in front of Newcastle (1-2) and Millwall (2-1).
This Sunday the teams are going to meet at Villa Park, so apart from the desperation to collect some points, West Ham will have more pressure to cope with, being the “visitors”. On the other hand, after the 3-3 draw with Everton, a victory is crucial for Aston Villa.
All in all, I am going to place a bet on Aston Villa’s victory. I bet 5 units at 2.63. The odds I used were from Bet365.
