Bitesize Prediction: Brentford vs Aston Villa – 22/04/23

Competition: Premier League

Market: Aston Villa double chance

Odds: 4/7 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has become a remarkable purple patch, Aston Villa will make the trip to west London on Saturday afternoon when they meet Brentford.

Starting with the hosts, while Brentford might have impressed many prior to the World Cup’s winter break, Thomas Frank’s side have come crashing back down to earth over recent weeks. Last seen putting in another downbeat display as they were hit with a 2-0 loss away at relegation outsiders Wolves, the Bees have now lost each of their last three straight Premier League appearances. Suffering a second-half collapse on home soil earlier in the month as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Newcastle, Frank almost finds his squad sat in top-flight limbo. Marking their return from March’s international break with an action-packed 3-3 draw against Brentford, Brentford have claimed just a single victory from any of their last seven Premier League outings. Hit with a 4-0 drumming when they travel to the Midlands for their reverse meeting on October 23rd, Frank’s side should be bracing themselves for another stern test here.

As for the visitors, laying down yet another Premier League marker last weekend as they claimed a thrilling 3-0 romp at home against Newcastle, Aston Villa are enjoying what has become a remarkable purple patch. Only continuing to shine since they welcomed Unai Emery to the Midlands back in October, the ex-Arsenal boss should find the mood in his camp at a red-hot high. Gaining a string of admirers and skyrocketing their way up the table, it is no secret that Villa now have their sight set on clinching a famous European spot in 2023. Marking their return from March’s international break with a deserved 2-0 win away at Chelsea, it should be noted that Emery’s side have now claimed a staggering 22 points from just their last eight Premier League appearances – a run that stems all the way back to February 18th. Given the huge recent gulf in class between Saturday’s opponents, we are backing an away double chance here.
