What Trueform says for Blackburn vs Aston Villa
Blackburn and Aston Villa are very closely matched on our Trueform ratings over the last four rounds of Championship fixtures.
Both teams are in mid-table with nine points and looking to bounce back from suffering heavy defeats prior to the international break.
That scenario makes 11/5 for a draw an obvious option with our opening Blackburn vs Aston Villa prediction.
A Look At Blackburn Rovers’ Betting Odds
Blackburn went ahead at Bristol City in bizarre fashion when Charlie Mulgrew scored directly from a corner but eventually ended up on the wrong side of a 4-1 hammering.
Rovers boss Tony Mowbray felt the final scoreline was harsh on his side, though, stating: “I’m not exaggerating to say that we could have scored three or four in the first half, but it didn’t happen for us.
“We lost a little bit of discipline for the third and fourth goals, but we had a lot of attacking players on the pitch trying to get back in the game.”
That was a first defeat of the season for last term’s League One runners-up, who had previously picked up two wins and three draws in this division, as well as a couple of emphatic EFL Cup victories.
A Look At Aston Villa’s Betting Odds
Aston Villa were also beaten 4-1 last time out when some sloppy defending proved their undoing at Sheffield United, with Anwar El Ghazi’s second-half strike merely a consolation effort.
“From back to front we were awful in a lot of aspects,” blasted manager Steve Bruce. “At the end of the day, we didn’t put our boots on.”
There were some excuses, though, as Bruce revealed that John McGinn, Alan Hutton and Jonathan Kodjia went into that game carrying knocks, while loan signings Yannick Bolasie and Tammy Abraham were unavailable.
Prior to that setback, Villa were unbeaten in the league, following up wins over Hull and Wigan with a hat-trick of draws versus Ipswich, Brentford and Reading.
Two of those stalemates finished 1-1 and 11/2 for a repeat of that result completes our Blackburn vs Aston Villa betting tips.
