The vacant 4th spot is the main goal for both Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur. Given that the top-3 is already out of sign with an 11-points gap and the sixth Manchester United is 6 points away, the main battle for the last Champions League place will be held between these two. Tottenham still has one more game to play, making the gap between two teams very tight. The first-round match saw Unai Emery’s team winning 2-1, and in general, the head to head statistics are favourable for the Villans, who have won Spurs three times in a row. The match at Villa Park can be decisive for Tottenham’s ambitions of returning to the most prestigious European Cup for the next season.

Aston Villa vs. Tottenham Hotspur Preview 

Aston Villa Preview

After setbacks suffered in the beginning of 2024, Aston Villa is back on track with 3 consecutive wins. While the opponents were from the bottom of the table (Luton, Nottingham, Fulham), getting three points from these matches were decisive for Emery. At the same time, these matches showed that the Villans do have problems in their defensive lines, given that they are conceding in 5 consecutive matches. The upcoming match against Spurs will be a serious test for the team in their fight for the UEFA Champions League for the next season. 

Tottenham Hotspur Preview 

Tottenham could have performed way better and could have been way higher in the tables if not for their defensive inconsistency and lack of concentration at the end of the match. Conceding a goal in the stoppage time became a trademark for Spurs matches this season, which cost them points frequently. At the same time, Tottenham is not performing well in the away matches lately, with 3 matches without a win (2 draws and 1 loss). Ange Postecoglou asks his players for consistency, as it was in the last match against Crystal Palace, where Spurs were inert for the most of the match, returning to the game only for 11 minutes (from 77 to 88th minute), during which the players showed proper determination, resulted in scoring 3 goals. This may not be enough for the match with Aston Villa, who is more coherent and tactically ruthless than previous Spurs’ opponents.

Ollie Watkins to Score at Any Time

Ollie Watkins is on fire this season, with 16 Premier League goals already, being behind only Erling Haaland. In the last match he was again on the scoresheet with a double and it is expected that he will become a nightmare for Spurs’ defence in the upcoming match. He also scored in the first-round match between the teams and Aston Villa vs. Tottenham Hotspur odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 2.15.

Christian Romero to Receive a Yellow Card

Christian Romero is one of the most aggressive defenders in the Premier League with 20 yellow cards collected already. His aggressive style of play and ruthless movements often bring him in situations where collecting a yellow card is simply inevitable. Surprisingly, he has collected zero yellow cards in 2024 and given his playstyle and the importance of the match, it looks like this ‘drought’ will be broken against Aston Villa. Unibet gives 3.10 for this Aston Villa vs. Tottenham Hotspur tip.
