Bolton Wanderers vs Aston Villa Prediction

Though they travel north on a down note, following a sluggish start to the season, it will be a much-changed Aston Villa XI that starts on Tuesday, and their top-level experience should prevent them from being turned over. Bolton rarely loses at home, but they now find themselves stepping up in class.

Bolton Wanderers vs Aston Villa Betting Tips

First of all, we would like to point out that these teams do not play in the same division; Aston Villa play in the Premier League, the top English division, while their opponents play in League One, the third tier of English football.

However, despite being the favorites here, Aston Villa’s recent form does not inspire much confidence; the villains have played two games away from home this season and have lost both games. By contrast, Bolton Wanderers have won three of four home games so far this season; they have lost just one of the six games they have played in all competitions.

Bearing in mind that Bolton has a home advantage, we don’t think they will lose by more than one goal.

Bolton Wanderers vs Aston Villa Match Preview:

Ending a week in which summer signing Diego Carlos suffered a season-ending injury, Aston Villa lost their second away game of the season at the hands of Crystal Palace on Saturday.

After a meek capitulation at Bournemouth in their first Premier League match, Steven Gerrard’s men cruised to a home win against Everton, but despite taking the lead at Selhurst Park through Ollie Watkins, they were ultimately beaten by a confident local team.

Under mounting pressure from an uneasy fan base, and having lost 14 of 30 games in charge since succeeding Dean Smith, Gerrard now turns to cup competition, where he is likely to bleed some less-used fringe players.

With home games against West Ham and Manchester City interspersed with a trip to Arsenal next week, Villa need a morale-boosting display in one of the club’s favorite competitions.

Although the last of their five League Cup wins came in 1996, just two years after their fourth, the Midlands side were also finalists in 2010 and 2020, and a similar run would be welcome this season.

After suffering their first league defeat since March, in a 2-0 home loss at the weekend, Bolton will be looking to bounce back immediately against potentially vulnerable senior opponents.

Sacked by an impressive Sheffield Wednesday side on Saturday afternoon, Wanderers conceded two goals in two first-half minutes and then couldn’t break through as they looked for a way to get back into the game after half-time.

However, they had previously gone 14 games without defeat apart from pre-season friendlies, including a 5-1 thrashing of Salford in the EFL Cup first round.

Before making the long journey to Plymouth next weekend, Ian Evatt’s men will welcome another huge crowd to their Lancashire venue, as after 22,000 fans streamed through the gates to witness the end of their winning streak, most will return hoping to see a cup beaten.

With eight points from five games leaving them seventh in the starting League One standings, a promotion charge is very much on the line, and knocking out their former Premier League colleagues would only serve to fuel that momentum.
