Football Betting Tips West Bromwich vs Aston Villa
With 80 points, West Bromwich placed 4th in the Championship but struggled at the end of the season. As proof, Gareth Barry’s partners have won only one of their last four games. Held in check by Reading (0-0), they then beat the relegated future Rotherham United (2-1) and then lost to Derby County (3-1). In the first leg, they lost again on Aston Villa and will have to win if they want to reach the final of these play-offs.
For its part, Aston Villa finished 5th in the regular season. The Villans ended the season in cannonball by winning 10 times consecutively before a draw in Leeds (1-1) and losing to the leader on the final day (1-2 ). However, they are in good shape after the first leg (2-1) and need only a draw to reach the final.
