The match

Aston Villa host Leicester City in this midlands derby in the Premier League. The home side begin the weekend in 13th place but a win here can see them go above 10th placed City. Villa have shown improvement since the arrival of Steven Gerrard and are now six points clear of the relegation zone. They have beaten Brighton and Crystal Palace but then lost 2-1 at home to Manchester City in midweek. Villa have lost three of their last four league games and have just one clean sheet in the last eight fixtures. Both teams have scored in their last two games and three of the last four at home.

Leicester City are struggling for consistency and are five points behind the top four. Only one of their last five league games has been won, a 4-2 home win over struggling Watford. Midweek saw them held to a 2-2 draw at Southampton after twice trailing. Away form has seen them have three score draws in their past five Premier League matches. Only three teams in the table have conceded more league goals than Leicester. As far as both teams scoring, that's happened in three of the last four but the away stat is an amazing one. The last 14 away Premier League games have all seen both teams get on the scoresheet. Go for that stat in this game and a side bet on over 2.5 goals.

Key Statistics

  • The last 14 Leicester City away league games have seen both teams score.
  • City have two away clean sheets in their last 19 away league matches.
  • Both teams have scored in seven of the last nine games between these two clubs.
  • The two sides have conceded 48 league goals between them.

The bet of our experts

Aston Villa have been making some progress since changing their boss. They host Leicester who just let in far too many goals to be challenging for the top four. With both sides having poor defensive records but capable of scoring themselves, go for both teams to score in this fixture.
