Lille vs Aston Villa Betting Tips - BTTS

An entertaining first-leg saw Aston Villa claim a 2:1 advantage in Birmingham and another keenly contested matchup can be expected in northern France.

While Lille were enjoying a free week domestically, Aston Villa were in action as they scored a sensational 2:0 win at Arsenal, to give their Champions League qualification hopes a major shot in the arm.

After a heavy defeat to Tottenham last month, Villa have slowly picked up some form again with four wins and just one defeat (at Man City) in their last seven fixtures.

In the Conference League, Unai Emery´s side have won eight and lost just one of 11 games played this season, and with a 2:1 advantage, will be confident of booking a place in the last four. 

Goals can usually be expected when the Villains are involved - five of their last seven Conference League games saw BTTS while four of their six most recent road matches also saw both teams net.

Like Villa, Lille have been in strong form ahead of this tie. Les Dogues had gone seven games unbeaten before last week´s first leg defeat at Villa Park. 

Again, like their opponents, Paulo Fonseca´s side are usually reliable in the goal markets. Each of their last six matches saw BTTS while they also saw the same outcome in three of five home Conference League fixtures played this season.

Ultimately, a competitive and exciting contest seems likely with both teams capable of getting the result they want. I expect both sides to score, with Villa probably having enough quality to claim their place in the semi-finals.
