Football Betting Tips Aston Villa vs Derby County
Relegation, where the eye can see: In Germany, France, Spain, the Netherlands, teams everywhere are dueling in the fight for the Erstligaaufstieg. Nowhere is the race for excellence such a spectacle as in England. There is the “Championship Monday” sacred: the day on which the third climber from the English Championship is chosen. Who’s going to race this year – Aston Villa or Derby County?

The last three results: 4: 3 i. E. vs. West Bromwich Albion, 2: 1 Vs. West Bromwich Albion, 1: 2 Vs. Norwich City
Long-time Premier League fans may well be familiar with Aston Villa: The Birmingham traditional club is one of the oldest English football clubs, with a glorious history of seven league titles and seven FA Cup victories. In the recent past, however, the team hardly wrote success stories – in 2015/16, the club dropped out of the Premier League.
Since then, the “Villans” tried in vain to re-emerge. Already last year they came considerably close to the Premier League – but in the playoff final of the championship, the team had to bow to Fulham (0: 1), who sang and went down this season without a sound.
Exactly a year and a day later, the team is back in the playoff final on the way there, leaving 19 out of 24 championship clubs behind (5th place in the regular season), before Aston Villa took on the semi-final against West Bromwich Albion. The semi-final provided plenty of suspense, but ultimately sat down the Birminghamer club on penalties (4: 3).
By the way, Tammy Abraham transformed the decisive penalty. Who else: The 21-year-old top striker had already scored in the 2-1 first-leg win, and in the return leg it was his ice-cold nerves that propelled Villa to the Premier League. Overall, Abraham had an immense share of the club’s chances of promotion with 26 goals this season.
The biggest name next to the hotly-courted striker meanwhile sits on the bench: John Terry, former captain of Chelsea and the England team, now works as assistant coach at Aston Villa. On Monday it comes to a controversial controversy – because not only Villa has an English football legend sitting on the bench.
Possible lineup Aston Villa
Aston Villas Coach Smith is unlikely to take any major risks in the most important game of his career. The following formation seems to be expected:
Steer – A. El-Mohammadi, Tuanzebe, Mings, N. Taylor – McGinn, Hourihane, Grealish – Green, Abraham, El Ghazi

Aston Villa has John Terry – Derby County has Frank Lampard. Former FC Chelsea midfielder is now the head coach of the championship sixth – and soon he could be the head coach of a Premier League team.
The way to the playoff final led for County over Leeds United. In the league, the team had in two clashes (0-2, 1: 4) no chance against the team from Yorkshire – but when it came down to it, in the semi-final second leg, the Lampard-Elf grew beyond himself. After losing the first leg 1-0, the team won 4-2 in a dramatic return series. For the first time in football league history thus sat down by a team that had lost the first leg at home.
Previously Derby had the championship season in sixth. At least based on the table constellation, the team had the worst chances in the playoff, which will be played between places three to six. It’s no coincidence that the county is fighting for the crown of advancement: perhaps the greatest strength of the team is their carefreeness. The Derbyshire team are young, talented and have achieved much more than many expected. And: She has with Lampard an aspiring star coach, who committed most of his current service providers themselves.
Among them is Harry Wilson. The 22-year-old right winger is on loan from Liverpool FC and with 18 goals he is the team’s top scorer. Especially when it was hot to the final spurt, the youngster went to the top form (eight goals in the past ten competitive games). Besides the coach there are many hopes for the talented Wilson. Can he confirm it?
Possible lineup Derby County
Lampard will do its best to offer a competitive lineup. On the basis of his past compilations can be suspected about the following starting eleven:
Roos – Cole, Tomori, Keogh, Bogle – Johnson, Holmes – Lawrence, Mount, Wilson – Marriott
