Looking at Aston Villa vs Swansea Predictions, Dean Smith will play his first match as Aston Villa boss this weekend, when his team clash against Swansea City. This match will be held at Villa Park.
The Villains have experienced a bad start in their Championship Division campaign this season. In their opening 12 matches, Villa were only able to claim 3 wins, 6 draws and had to lose 3 defeats, which left them now 15th in the standings.
The results themselves make Remi Garde, as the previous Villa boss, lost his job and was replaced by Dean Smith last week. That was after The Villains suffered a humiliating defeat at Millwall's hands on Saturday. In the match that was held at The Den Stadium, Villa was actually able to excel quickly in the 7th minute through Tammy Abraham's goal. However, the home side managed to reverse the position when Shane Ferguson and Tom Elliott managed to thrill the Villains net in the 26th and 48th minutes, and the 2-1 position lasted until the final whistle sounded.
On the other hand, Swansea will come to this clash with a better level than Villa. Graham Potter's team managed to claim 4 wins, 5 draws and lost 3 in their opening 12 matches in the Championship Division this season.
That achievement made them sit in 11th place in the standings with 17 points. But unfortunately, the Potter troops have just experienced an embarrassing defeat when they host Ipswich Town, the team that is second in the bottom. In an exciting match held at the Liberty Stadium last week, the Swans managed to lead quickly through an own goal by Janoi Donacien in the 8th minute.
However, Ipswich managed to reverse the position to 1-2 after Gwion Edwards and Mike van der Hoorn scored to make his team lead until the first half ended. This game was even more exciting when Bersant Celina made Swansea equalize in the 79th minute, before finally Ipswich came out victorious after Trevoh Chalobah put the visitors ahead 2-3 with his goal on 84 minutes.
In Aston Villa vs Swansea head to head , in the last five games, Swansea managed to become a very dominant team over Villa. The Swans claimed five wins in clashes against The Villains . But that was only a record 2 years ago, and in this match Villa will be a little favored to win because they have the advantage of being the host. And of course, Dean Smith did not want his debut as Villa manager to end with minor results.
