Head To Head:
Aston Villa Wolverhampton Wanderers have played so far 18 matches.
Aston Villa won 7 direct matches. We don’t know how many matches Wolverhampton Wanderers have won. 6 matches ended in a draw. Both teams scored an average of 2.56 goals in direct matches.
The Villans scored on average 2.08 goals a match in actual season play. At home, there were 4 (100.00%) games with a total goal difference over 1.5 goals (both teams). The total goals scored (team and opponent) were over 2.5 goals in 2 (50.00%) matches played at home in season 2021.

Despite Douglas Luiz’s solid performances for Villa, I think the key battle will be in the midfield. Wolves should be looking for opportunities in the defensive midfield to breakthrough. Moreover, the midfielders of Wolves have been playing key roles of late. The players performed well on Wednesday when Bournemouth loaded the midfield with players.
Despite Villa scoring, I think the Wolves will win 2-1 and will come out on top.
