The first title of the 2019/20 season in the motherland of football will be awarded at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, March 1st. The final in the – often unpopular – League Cup is on the program. The fans can expect an extremely unequal duel, a final that can be divided into the category “David against Goliath”. Premier League promoted Aston Villa challenges yet champions Manchester City ..
Aston Villa vs Manchester City Free Betting Tips
The eleven from Birmingham could buy the ticket for the UEFA Europa League with a sensational victory on Sunday, but must also tremble in the league for remaining in the English football upper house. The Villians’ title win – it would be the sixth league cup title – would also bring a large return when betting.
Aston Villa – Statistics & current form
Relegation to the league is almost a must for the Premier League returnee this season, as well over 100 million euros have been invested in the squad so that the team can also establish themselves again in the English Premier League.
In view of these immense investments, the success is extremely manageable. After 27 game days, the team has 25 points on the credit side and thus only one point ahead of the first relegation zone.
A win in the last six league games
Especially in the past few weeks, the Smith elf has been anything but convincing. After Burnley FC’s 2-1 away win on New Year’s Day, there was only one success in their recent six league games (2-1 against Watford). Most recently, the Villians had to leave the course three times in a row as losers. So it was by no means possible to fuel self-confidence before the final against the Citizens.
Five title wins in the League Cup
It’s surprising for the younger football fans, but the Villians’ trophy cupboard is full. In addition to seven championships and seven FA Cup titles, Aston Villa also has five trophies in the English League Cup. The pot was last stretched skyward in the 1995/96 season.
In this year’s competition, Dean Smith’s team definitely benefited from the chaos of appointments at Liverpool FC. The quarter-final against the Reds was won 5-0, but Aston Villa hosted the U23 team of the league leaders and thus an easy game. In the semifinals, Egyptian Trezeguet made the decision in the 93rd minute when he prevented extra time and fixed the final with the 2-1 winner.
Aston Villa will not have a lot of ball possession on Sunday, the blatant outsider will try to make the rooms narrow, set pinpricks with counters and keep the zero as long as possible. 52 goals against the defensive, however, are not a good testimony and accordingly, between Aston Villa and Manchester City the prediction for the half-time / final score 2/2 seems to be an obvious option.
Probable lineup of Aston Villa:
↪ Reina – Targett, Mings, Home, Konsa, Guilbert – Douglas Luiz, Nakamba – El Ghazi, Grealish – Samatta

Manchester City – Statistics & current form
In just eight minutes, Manchester City are likely to have bought their ticket to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League. In the top game against Real Madrid, the Guardiola team did not seem to want to take part in the game in the first 45 minutes. The English champions took any pace out of the game and played without a real striker.
It was only in the second half that City became more offensive and after the deficit – as a result of a terrible Rodri cross pass – City also courageously advanced. In the final phase, the events overturned – controversial Jesus’ equalization, penalty goal by de Bruyne and a Ramos red due to an emergency brake caused smiling faces at the skyblues.
What is the personnel situation like before the final?
In the final on Sunday at Wembley Stadium, Pep Guardiola will certainly change after the real game. Aymeric Laporte had to be replaced due to injuries in the first half. He almost had tears in his eyes, an assignment on Sunday is not to be expected. Otherwise, Guardiola is basically available to all players.
Sergio Agüero will probably slip into the main line-up after his 90-minute bank stay at the Bernabeu, as will David Silva, Fernandinho, Joao Cancelo or Raheem Sterling. In terms of quality, there is no question that the Citizens are at least two classes above the Villians. How exciting this endgame will be is entirely in the hands of the Citizens.
A clear success for the Guardiola protected would definitely not come as a surprise. However, our betting base odds comparison shows that a win with three goals difference is required for lucrative odds to be offered between Aston Villa and Manchester City.
Does City need the title at all?
The question is a little exaggerated, but aims to exclude the European Cup. The title holder receives a Europa League ticket, which does not have to be claimed by City and thus the free space would be filled via the league.
However, another place may be vacant anyway, as the Guardiola team was sentenced to a two-year ban in the first instance. Unsurprisingly, the club appeals to the International Court of Sport (CAS) and hopes that the judgment will be mitigated.
Probable lineup of Manchester City:
↪ Ederson – Mendy, Fernandinho, Otamendi, Cancelo – David Silva, Rodri, Gündogan – Sterling, Agüero, de Bruyne
Last games from Manchester City:
⚽️ 02/26/2020 – Real Madrid vs. Manchester City 1: 2 (Champions League)
⚽️ 02/22/2020 – Leicester City vs. Manchester City 0-1 (Premier League)
⚽️ Feb 19, 2020 – Manchester City vs. West Ham 2-0 (Premier League)
⚽️ 02.02.2020 – Tottenham vs. Manchester City 2-0 (Premier League)
⚽️ 01/29/2020 – Manchester City vs. Manchester United 0-1 (League Cup)
