After a round of cancelled fixtures, 17th-placed Aston Villa are all set to take on 12th-placed Southampton on Saturday in the Premier League. Villa pulled off a shocker to restrict Manchester City to a 1-1 draw a couple of weeks ago, which was very strange considering their run of 3 losses coming into this match. On the other hand, Southampton too ran into a shocking result as they could not salvage even a point at Bruno Lage's Wolverhampton Wanderers as the game ended in a 2-1 defeat for the Saints. Nevertheless, with both sides flaunting a very turbulent home and away record respectively, this could be one of the trickiest games to predict, this weekend.

Aston Villa vs Southampton Betting Tips: BTTS

Aston Villa have conceded just 3 goals at home since the season began, which is a solid defensive effort by the relegation-zone-threatened side. But against Southampton, the Lions have struggled lately. In 5 of the last 7 head-to-head clashes, Southampton have managed to not only score against Villa, but they have opened the scoring too. In 5 of Villa's last 6 games, they have seen both sides scoring too this season - which confirms our prediction to say the least. Our best suggestion would be going for a BTTS bet tipped at 1.70 average odds at the time of writing. When it comes to the final result, we are looking at a 1-1 draw to be the most probable.

Aston Villa Team News

Villa will be without the services of left-back Matty Cash, who was seen limping off against Manchester City at halftime. Ashley Young should replace him in the starting eleven, quite comfortably. Talking about some of the key men in this camp, Ollie Watkins is disappointingly still the foremost goalscorer in the side. The striker, who took the EFL Championship by storm a couple of seasons ago, has contributed to 3 goals this season which is far below his capabilities. Jacob Ramsey has done enough to bench Philippe Coutinho, as the attacking midfielder continues to terrorize defences with his average of 1.3 key passes every game. Right-back Lucas Digne will be needed on his defensive duties, as the ex-Everton defender racks up 1.8 interceptions per 90 minutes to save his side's back. Watkins, Ramsey and Digne will be our three players to watch.

Southampton Team News

Southampton's defence has shone so much in this short time of the 2022-23 season, that they have hidden the fragility of the offensive setup. The Saints have scored just 7 goals in 6 games, 4 of which have been contributed by the two forwards - Che Adams and Adam Armstrong. But, the club's most potent goalscorer still remains James Ward-Prowse. The academy graduate from Southampton is deadly from set pieces, scoring most of his goals through direct free-kicks. He also is very dangerous in live play, with 2.5 key passes on average being his rate of chance creation in the Premier League. Mohamed Salisu's spot in the first team seems to be in jeopardy as the new centre-back duo of Armel Bella-Kotchap and Romeo Lavia have racked in 4 interceptions on average every game (more than double of Salisu). Ward-Prowse, Bella-Kotchap and Lavia will be our three players to watch out for.
