Bitesize Prediction: Luton Town vs Aston Villa – 02/03/24

Competition: Premier League

Market: Aston Villa win

Odds: 3/4 @ 1xBet

Looking to extend on their Champions League charge on Saturday evening, Aston Villa will make the trip to Kenilworth Road when they meet Luton.

Starting with the hosts, crashing out of the FA Cup earlier in the week following a 6-2 drumming at the hands of Manchester City, it is no secret that Luton are tipped as a leading contender to be hit with an immediate Championship return. While Rob Edwards’ men might have gained plenty of plaudits from across England’s top-flight this season, the Hatters are enduring a real crisis. Last seen in Premier League action suffering a collapse at Anfield as they slumped to a 4-1 loss against Liverpool, the former Watford boss has a real job on his hands at Kenilworth Road. Opening Saturday’s showdown in Berkshire sat four points adrift of safety, Luton have lost all of their previous four showdowns against Premier League opposition. Hit with what could prove to be a season-defending 3-1 defeat against Sheffield United on February 10th, Edwards will also have a major headache over his side’s glaring defensive issues. in fact, the Hatters have shipped 15 goals on their four-match losing run.

As for the visitors, only continuing on what has been a real domestic romp this season, Aston Villa are still dreaming of the chance to punch a famous Champions League ticket in 2024. Last seen putting in another action-packed display as they secured a 4-2 victory at home against Nottingham Forest, Unai Emery’s men find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Now securing back-to-back Premier League victories, the former Arsenal boss will be calling on his record-breaking squad to make another statement of intent here. Likewise, receiving a host of plaudits from their rugged performances outside of the Midlands, Aston Villa have lost just one of their last 10 appearances on the road – a run that stems all the way back to November 5th. Likewise, landing that routine 3-1 victory when they welcomed Luton to town for their reverse Premier League showdown back on October 29th, we are expecting a similar away win for the top-four contenders here.
