Betting suggests goals unlikely at Villa Park

Both sides have been shy in front of goal this season

Aston Villa host Liverpool in the second instalment of what looks on paper to be a cracking Super Sunday. Only three places separate these two sides in the league with Villa currently in ninth position and Liverpool in sixth.

Villa have been very hard to beat this season and they have only lost four of their 15 games played so far. Liverpool likewise have been difficult to overcome and they have only lost three of their 15 matches so far this season. So this looks like it will be a very close game indeed.

Villa are still without goalkeeper Shay Given who has picked up a hamstring injury and faces a month on the sidelines. They will also be missing key front man Gabriel Agbonlahor who is serving a one match ban after picking up his fifth booking of the season against Bolton last time out. Liverpool have no new injury concerns and are still without influential midfielders Steven Gerrard and Lucas.

Both sides have been shy in front of goal this season having only mustered up 18 goals each in their 15 matches. So with a tight game expected our selection will come in the form of under 2.5 goals. It appears that both Alex McLeish and Kenny Dalglish have put the emphasis on keeping things tight at the back as Villa have only let in 19 goals so far and Liverpool only 13, which is the best record in the league.

From Villa’s 15 games this season just over half of them have seen a goal tally of less than 2.5 goals. The same can be said about their matches played at Villa Park this season also. Liverpool’s matches have seen the fewest goals in the league, as from their 15 games only four of them have seen a greater goal tally than 2.5 and five of their seven away matches have also produced less than 2.5 goals.
