Competition: Capital One Cup
Market: Aston Villa to win against Notts County
Odds: 4/9 @ Betfair
Aston Villa host Notts County in the second round of the Capital One Cup tonight, with the Midlands outfit big favourite to come out on top. Tim Sherwood’s men have been much improved from past seasons, and shouldn’t have any problem beating a League Two side currently enduring a difficult start to the new campaign.
County are currently 16th in their domestic league, and have gone three games without a win. The visitors lost their most recent away game too, so they meet Aston Villa off the back of poor form. The home side are likely to rest names for this clash to give fringe players some game time, which means Notts County could find more joy at Villa Park than they normally would.
However, Sherwood will be desperate for another cup run after last seasons trip to Wembley for the FA Cup final. As a result, Betfair are giving odds of 4/9 for the Villans to win tonight’s Capital One Cup clash in 90 minutes. A draw would see the game go to extra time, but the hosts should have enough attacking quality to get the goals to win the game.
