Aston Villa take on visitors Chelsea at Villa Park. The match of gameweek 32 will be played on Saturday, April 2nd.
Aston Villa show awful results this season. The team have only 16 points after 31 match and sit on the very last place in the standings. They are 12 points behind 17th place that would keep them in top division but 3 teams already battling for this spot and the Villa aren’t even close to be involved. The hosts of the match have only mathematical chances to remain in top flight. Aston Villa failed to take points in five of their recent matches. Moreover, they are on 6-match losing streak. The Lions have only 3 wins and 21 defeat this season. The team show poor football in both offence and defense with 2-12 aggregate goal difference in these losses. Home record of the team is disappointing as well: 1 win and 4 losses in last five matches at Villa Park, failing to score in three of these clashes.

Guus Hiddink’s men are currently 10th after 30 matches. The reigning champions have no chances to qualify for the Champions League next season and the place in Europa League is also needs to be reached first as the team is 9 points behind the 5th place. The Blues are on 12-match unbeaten streak that started with departure of Jose Mourinho. The team won 3 and drew 2 of their last five matches. They scored 12 goals in these games, allowing opponents to net 6 times. Chelsea unable to record a clean sheet in last 10 matches in all competitions. Today’s visitors won only two out of their last five matches on the road, suffered two defeat and recorded a draw. There was only one time they managed to deny of efforts of their opponent.
Chelsea have a lead in recent head-to-heads between teams as they won 3, drew 1 and lost another one of these clashes. The visitors are obvious favorites of the match (1.50) while Aston Villa considered as underdog (6.00). Bookmakers also don’t expect the match to be eventful, offering 1.8 for over 2.5 goals in the match and 2.00 for an opposite outcome. Aston Villa are in the position when they have nothing to lose but it’s hard to count on victory of the hosts against current champions. Most of the Chelsea players went on international duty and they aren’t in their best conditions after long flights. We can expect Villans at least to avoid defeat in this match.
Prediction for the match: Aston Villa to win with +0.5 Asian handicap.
