Aston Villa v Brentford tips: Who’ll maintain their unbeaten start?

| 22.08.2018

Aston Villa and Brentford both have promotion in their sights this season. They’ve got a chance to lay a marker down when they meet at Villa Park tonight.

The two sides have both picked up seven points from their opening three league games. Neither of them have lost yet. Is that about to change? Here are our tips for the action…

Match Odds

Villa are 7/5 favourites here, but Brentford haven’t lost any of the four games between the two sides over the last two seasons.

The Bees are 15/8 to pick up three points, with the draw a 23/10 shot. You can also get Brentford or Draw at 8/15 in the Double Chance market.

Talking tactics

Steve Bruce’s side found it hard to break down Ipswich Town in their last outing. The hosts will have more space to work with here against adventurous opposition. But they’ll need to make sure they don’t leave themselves exposed at the back.

Brentford have looked very tidy going forward. They’ve hit 12 goals in their four games so far. They could have had more if they’d been more clinical though.

Goalscorer odds

Brentford’s Neal Maupay narrowly leads the Anytime scorer market at 8/5. After opening his account for the campaign last weekend, Villa’s Jonathan Kodjia is just behind at 13/8. They’re both 9/2 to open the scoring.

Ollie Watkins has scored for the Bees in all three league games this season. He’s 21/10 to keep that run going. He’s 6/1 to get the first goal too.
