Norwich City v Aston Villa Preview, Premiership, Saturday 21st September 2013

Norwich City head into this game having had a relatively poor start to their new season which has seen them win one, draw one and lose two of their four matches played so far and last weekend’s defeat against Tottenham Hotspur highlighted the fact that this side is going to struggle to avoid relegation having had very little of the posession during the game and must win as many of their homes games as they can if they are to stand any real chance of staying up this season.

Aston Villa started the new Premiership season with a ‘Bang’ when beating Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium and all Villa fans must of been exicted to disccus afterwards that maybe this could be their year. However those hopes and dreams have pretty much shattered into thin air now as manager Paul Lambert’s side went on to lose all three of their following league games, two of them being at Villa Park.

Norwich City v Aston Villa Recent Form

Chelsea just edge the recent form statistics having won two of their previous five matches played. Everton have only managed to win one of their last five played, but have only been defeated once compared to Chelsea who have lost twice.

Norwich City v Aston Villa Match Betting Odds Market.

Norwich City will know that to have any chance of survival this season it will be their home games they will need to win and the bookmakers seem to realise this and have made them the clear favourites to win this game on saturday afternoon with a current best price of 7/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) the best price available currently.

The Draw wouldn’t do either of these sides any favours looking at their current league positions, but with the draw having happened 7 times at Carrow Road Stadium I can certainly see this attracting some punters at a best price of 12/5 with Betfred (£10 Free Bets No Deposit Required for New Customers).

Aston Villa will be desperate to put some much needed points up on the board having lost all three of their previous league matches and with the strike force they have up front I can definitely see them scoring in this game and could be a clever play at a current best price of 21/10 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers).

Norwich City v Aston Villa Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

This is a big game for both sides and one that both managers will be desperate to win. Norwich City have the all important home advantage and do have a decent record when playing at Carrow Road in front of their home fans, but looking at their recent matches against Aston Villa we do see that Villa have come out on top and for me they look the more likely to win this game on saturday afternoon.

The goal stats suggest that this game should see at least a couple of goals go in and with both sides having some world class attacking players in their squads I would definitely expect to see this game to see goals and betting markets like over 2.5 goals, both teams to score, total goals and even anytime goalscorers could offer plenty of value.

However, I’m going to go for Paul Lambert’s side to turn their recent poor form around and win this game at what I think is a very decent price indeed with Benteke again being amongst the goalscorers.
