Newcastle United v Aston Villa Match Preview & Trends

The Friday night game this week comes from St.James’ Park as Aston Villa travel to face Newcastle United. Steve Bruce will be keen for a home win to lift spirits amongst the Magpies who are struggling of late. Villa meanwhile have not been firing on all cylinders without their injured captain Jack Grealish but Dean Smith will be reasonably content with how his side have coped without their talisman. A midlands derby last time out resulted in a 0-0 draw against Wolves at Villa Park, putting them in ninth place on the magical 40 point mark which traditionally sees teams safe from the drop. Villa of course have higher aspirations than that this year and will believe internally that a Europa spot is achievable with a good run. Just a point clear of the relegation places with 11 games to play, Newcastle United are in 16th place on 27 points. A win in the last match against fellow strugglers WBA was no to be as the Magpies played out a stalemate at the Hawthorns.  Newcastle have now not won for 4 matches and have conceded at least 1 goal in 92% of their home matches. Aston Villa have scored in 79% of their away matches and did not concede any goal in 57% of their away matches.

Key trends

Both teams have scored in 47% of all Premier league games between these two clubs. 

Newcastle United have picked up an average of 1.15 Points Per Game in their 13 matches played at home

Aston Villa’s average Points Per Game in their 14 away games is 1.64.
