Villa to win and total over 2.5
This is third time i am rewritting review for this match, something makes my iPad hate this article :) however i have promised to share my thoughs with you and I will.
firstly I have few entertaining bits of statistics i would like to present:
1. Villa have never lost a single game against forth tier opposition;
2. Villa have won all 19 ties against forth tier oppostions;
3. In 27 matches against forth tier opposition they have scored 91 goals (thats more than 3 per game);
4 Villa progressed 8 times in 13 attempts;
5. Villa have won first fixture only 2 times (D7, L4).
Now looking at this information you may think about Villa drawing this game and winning home, but simply have a look at Villa's form in COC! They have one every single match with more than 3 goals scored. My only concern is that Lambert may rest a few important players with Saturday game in mind. However I think this is unlikely as League cup final is just too close to take chances. Villa wants to win this and there is enough quality to do so.
My bet is Villa to win a match with more than 2.5 total goals.
