Swansea And Aston Villa

Match Date: 26 April 2014 (local time)

Venue: Liberty Stadium


Aston Villa’s relegation woes continue to increase as it failed to snatch the much needed 3 points. Meanwhile, Swansea’s well-deserved victory against Newcastle United generates a big boost to its confidence and therefore, makes them the match’s football betting favorite.


It looks like the Villans have not fully recovered from Stoke’s merciless thrashing. Since then the club has been subjected to consecutive defeats, which resulted to a major slip in the Premier League ranking.


Such situation has been causing troubles not only to the whole squad, but also to its head honcho, Paul Lambert. The club’s lackluster performance threatens Lambert’s stay in Aston Villa. And this could mean an immediate sacking should he lose the match at Liberty Stadium.


Going against Swansea and hopefully, winning over them is a crucial moment for the Villans. It serves as their first major step in maintaining its Premier League status. But the question is, do they have the right form to pursue their goals?


Just recently, Aston Villa has recorded its 3rd consecutive defeat outside its own territory. Against Swansea, they will be taking the visitor’s role again. Should they fail to improve, there is a high possibility for them to enter the Championship.


Meanwhile, Swansea can take the match as a golden opportunity for them to make a stronger finish. They will be playing at home and has all the advantage to use and exploit.
