Aston Villa – Reading

Aston Villa welcomes Reading in a match from the 40th round of the English Championship. Here are our winning soccer predictions for this game at the Villa Park in Birmingham.

Aston Villa are still engaged in a fight for promotion to the Premier League. The Former European champions are 4th in the Championship standings with 70 points. They are trailing on 10 points behind the 2nd Cardiff City, so it’s clear that Villa will participate in the playoffs in the best scenario.

Right now Aston Villa have a record of 20 wins, 10 draws and 9 defeats in the Championship. In their last five matches Villa won twice, lost twice and made one draw – against Hull City in the last round.

Reading on the other hand are doing much worse than Aston Villa. They are 19th in the Championship with 39 points, being 5 points above the 22th Barnsley and the relegation zone. Reading’s main goal this season is survival and they still have a little work to do in order to make it.

In their last five matches Reading won just once – against Queens Park Rangers in the last round. They also lost twice and made two draws, which tells us that they are not in their best possible form at the moment.

Aston Villa are a clear favourite here. This is a club with a rich history, which deserves to be in the Premier League. Villa’s relegation to the Championship was a huge failure, so let’s see if they can fix the mistake this season.

As for Reading, now they must survive and eventually think for something more next season. This campaign has not been good for them and it’s obvious.

These are our winning soccer predictions for the Championship game between Aston Villa and Reading. Good luck!
