Last season Aston Villa performed in the English elite division, having disappointed everybody and relegated to the Championship. At the moment “Villans” sit on the third position in the second division table with 56 points taken after 30 gameweeks behind. The club has one of the strongest offenses in the Championship which has scored 46 goals already, however, its defense also looks tough with 27 goals conceded. In the recent battles conducted at “Villa Park” Aston Villa have broken Burton 3:2 and Barnsley 3:1, but lost 1:3 to Peterborough within the FA Cup.

Meanwhile, Birmingham highly distress their supporters in this season. “Brammies” are sitting now on the 19th place in the Championship standings with 30 points gained after 30 clashes played. The team’s attack is a real disaster as it has managed to score only 22 goals while its defense also stays in a horrible competitive form, having conceded 41 goals already. In the previous games conducted on the road Birmingham have beaten Sheffield Wed 3:1 plus deserved two draws against Preston and Huddersfield with the same 1:1 scoreline.
Birmingham and Aston Villa recorded 0:0 draw in the reverse fixture played earlier in this season. Still, at this moment “Villans” have much higher chances for a successful outcome of the forthcoming clash as they are fighting for promotion to the Premier League while “Brammies” have stuck in the bottom part of the table. Therefore, the visitors are not likely to get any points in the upcoming Birmingham derby.
Prediction for the match: Aston Villa to win.
