Leeds United vs Aston Villa Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

Raphinha Leeds 2021

Leeds United are looking to build on their comfortable win over Southampton when they welcome Aston Villa to Elland Road for Saturday evening’s Premier League fixture.

Patrick Bamford scored a hat-trick when the two sides met at Villa Park earlier in the season and Leeds are 6/5 (2.20) favourites with bet365 to complete the double over Dean Smith’s outfit.

Villa have won just one of their last six away games in the Premier League and are priced at 2/1 (3.0) to maintain their push for a European spot with victory in West Yorkshire.

This exact fixture finished 1-1 on each of the last two occasions it has been played and another draw is available at 11/4 (3.75).

Jamie Shackleton was ruled out just before kick-off against Southampton and Mateusz Klich was forced off after an hour of that game, joining Gaetano Berardi, Adam Forshaw, Rodrigo, Ian Poveda, Kalvin Phillips and Robin Koch on the sidelines.

Jack Grealish will miss out again after also being injured for Villa’s loss against Leicester, with Matty Cash, Wesley and Kortney Hause also all out.

Leeds’ 3-0 win over Southampton was yet another entertaining fixture involving Bielsa’s men and, with any threat of relegation almost diminished, there is little doubt that they will continue to play with such openness and freedom.

Tuesday was the fifth time in their last six Premier League games that they have recorded seven shots on target and recorded nine when these sides last met back in October, meaning the Whites could be in for another fruitful outing.

Villa have faced 118 shots on target this season, the seventh-most in the top flight, with 29 of those coming across their last four outings including seven against Leicester,nine against Brighton and 10 versus West Ham.

Over 5.5 shots on target for Leeds is priced at 5/6 (1.83) with bet365 and looks a strong selection for this fixture.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
