The final Premier League match of the weekend will see Manchester United travel down to Birmingham to take on Aston Villa at Villa Park. This is a big match that could go a long way to deciding which team will finish in the fourth and final Champions League spot come the end of the season. Villa are currently in the driving seat, but a couple of losses could change all of that pretty quickly. So, read on to find out whether Villa will tighten their grip on the top four, or whether United will manage to bridge the gap.

🏆 Aston Villa vs Manchester United: Who Will Win?

If you had told Aston Villa fans that they would be sitting in 4th place in the league after having played 23 matches, they would have laughed in your face. However, they have performed admirably throughout the season and are currently just five points adrift of Liverpool at the top. Their form has dipped slightly in recent weeks, which is something that will concern those of a Villa persuasion. Despite this, they are still 5th in the form table over the previous ten matches.

Many punters and fans like to say that Manchester United have had a horrendous season, but I think there is a lot of hyperbole surrounding them. Yes, they are no longer in the Champions League, having been knocked out of the group stage, and they do play some pretty bland football, but they are still sitting in 6th place, just eight points adrift of Villa. They are a bit inconsistent at times, but they know that they consistently beat Villa.

As a Villa fan, I know first-hand how poor our record is against Manchester United, and our capitulation on Boxing Day is something that still irks me. As a result, I cannot help but predict a Man United win here. When it comes to the scoreline, I will plumb for 3-1, but I do hope that I am wrong.

My Prediction: 🏆 Aston Villa 1 Manchester United 3⚽

💯 Aston Villa vs Manchester United Match Odds

I could provide you with odds for a whole range of betting markets as football has more markets than any other sport, but the three that I am going to be focusing on in this prediction are:

  • Match winner
  • Over/under 2.5 goals
  • Both teams to score

There are plenty of established and new UK betting sites that you can opt to open an account with in order to bet on the above markets, but the five bookies that I recommend you to take a closer look at can be found in the tables below, alongside the odds that they are offering for these three popular markets.

Those of you who want to find out more about the bookies that appear in the tables below, such as the type of free bets that are being offered to British punters, can do so by clicking on the logos that we have provided. Doing so will take you to the review which we have written for each sports betting site.

Aston Villa vs Manchester United: Match Winner Odds

Aston Villa are the favourites to win this this match, and this can only be put down to the fact that Unai Emery's men have a very good record at home. Their 3-1 defeat to Newcastle in their last home game was their first home defeat in nearly a year. It seems that the bookies have not taken Villa's horrific head-to-head record against United into consideration. Those of you who want to bet on the match winner can find the current odds in the table below:

Team
Aston Villa2.142.142.202.122.14
Draw3.703.703.803.753.75
Manchester United3.053.053.103.153.15

Aston Villa vs Manchester United: Both Teams To Score Odds

The bookies are pretty certain that both Aston Villa and Manchester United will score in this match, and I can see why. In the following section of this prediction, I will give you the reasons why I also believe that both teams will find the back of the net on Sunday evening. If you are the kind of punter who likes to take a punt on both teams to score, then check out the odds that are being offered in the table below:

Team
Yes1.441.441.441.401.48
No2.662.662.602.02.65

Aston Villa vs Manchester United: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

The bookies are adamant that there will be at least three goals scored in this match and, as you can tell from my predicted scoreline above, I am also in agreement with them. Why is this? Well, I will not give you the reasons now - you can read the next section for those. What I will do now though is give you the over/under 2.5 goals odds that my top bookies are offering for this market:

Team
Over 2.51.501.501.531.451.50
Under 2.52.432.432.452.452.55

✔️ Aston Villa vs Manchester United - Betting Tips

I have dedicated this section to my football betting tips for this Aston Villa vs Manchester United match. Before I give you my match betting advice, I would like to remind you to bet responsibly and only gamble with money that you can afford to lose.

  • Tip 1: Bet on Manchester United to win: Aston Villa are the favourites with the bookmakers, but they have clearly disregarded Villa's horrific head-to-head against Manchester United. Since the turn of the century, Aston Villa have managed to beat United a total of three times. Every team has a bogey team, and United, unfortunately so, happen to be Villa's. If you want to back United to win, then LeoVegas are currently offering odds of 3.15.
  • Tip 2: Bet on both teams to score: Villa have scored in their last 38 home matches, while United have only failed to score against Villa two times in their previous 25 meetings. Furthermore, 73% of Villa's home matches this season have seen both teams find the back of the net. Thus, you can see why it is hard for me to look at anything other than BTTS. If you want to put down such a wager, then BetUK sports are offering odds of 1.48.
  • Tip 3: Bet on over 2.5 goals: Villa have been scoring goals for fun this season, with only Liverpool and Man City having scored more goals than them. Furthermore, 16 of Villa's 23 league matches this season has seen at least 3 goals scored in them. From United's previous ten league matches, seven of them have seen over 2.5 goals scored in them. If you want to bet on over 2.5 goals, then you can find odds of 1.50 on offer at Mr. Mega Sport.
  • Tip 4: Bet on United to win 3-1: If you want to put some money on the correct scoreline because of the enticing odds that are usually on offer, and you agree with my prediction of a 3-1 win for United, then Betiton Sport are offering odds of 17.40 for this score.

1️⃣Aston Villa Update

Unai Emery is doing a wonderful job with Aston Villa as they are currently averaging 2 points per match this season. If they can keep this up between now and the end of the season, then a spot in next season's Champions League will definitely be theirs for the taking.

The key to their success this season is the fact that they are averaging 2.13 goals per match, while only conceding 1.30. Yes, they have slightly gone off the boil in recent matches, but they are struggling with some key injuries and tiredness. Every team has a bit of a blip at some point in the season, so Villa fans should not be too downhearted.

2️⃣ Manchester United Update

Talks of Manchester United having a disastrous season are highly overexaggerated in my opinion. Yes, they did underperform in the Champions League, getting knocked out by Copenhagen, but they are currently sitting in 6th place in the table and are in contention to claim a spot in next season's Champions League.

They will head into this match full of confidence after their easy 3-0 win over West Ham in their previous match. Furthermore, even if they do go a goal or two down in this match, they will be able to draw on their 3-2 comeback on Boxing Day that all Villa fans are trying to forget.
