English Championship Match Previews, Betting Odds & Tips – 14/09/2016
When a team falls from the Premier League, its first objective is to win promotion as soon as possible back. It gets progressively harder as seasons pass, so a quick bounce-back is a must. Although the league is very long , each team playing a minimum of 46 games, not finding your balance quickly can be deadly – and leaves a newly relegated team stranded in the middle of the standings. And Aston Villa surely wants to steer clear of this.
Aston Villa vs Brentford
Betting Odds: Aston Villa 1.75 or 3/4 Draw 4.00 or 3/1 Brentford 4.80 or 19/5 with Bet365
After their most disappointing season in recent history, which led to their relegation from the Premier League from last place, the Villains haven’t started their promotion campaign greatly, only winning a handful of points in their first games.
They know that they need to find their balance very, very quickly – and start winning. A 6 or 7 point gap between them and the places which ensure direct promotions is not a tragedy yet, but can quickly become larger if they don’t start producing good football.
On the other hand, Brentford is that kind of team which probably has too much quality to fall but too little quality to get promoted. Even if they somehow have a great season and reach the playoffs, they probably won’t be able to win these playoffs and reach the Premier League.
Looking at their recent seasons, they will finish somewhere between 8th or 16th place, not producing any fireworks or large disappointments.
That is one of the reasons why their direct game against Aston Villa is rather hard to predict. The Villains should start winning sooner or later, but they do face a solid team.
