Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over the likes of Queens Park Rangers and Sunderland, Aston Villa take on Ipswich Town on day 19 of the new Championship campaign. The Villans are eyeing automatic promotion to the Premier League and they need to keep on raising their form if they are to turn their dream into reality. Aston Villa are seen as hot favourites to win Saturday’s football match against Ipswich Town, but the Tractor Boys should not be written off just yet. Mick McCarty’s charges sit in the middle of the Premier League table ahead of the trip to Aston Villa and they are definitely capable of shocking the Villans at Villa Park. Ipswich Town, though, recorded only one win in last seven away games in the league and that is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the home side.
Highlighted Player (John Terry):
John Terry is a player who dedicated his professional football career to Chelsea. The veteran defender is well known for his leadership qualities and it is no surprise he was the captain of the England national team. Terry plays as a centre back, is known for his aerial ability, but for hard tackling as well. The England player retired from the international football on 23 September, 2012 and it has to be noted that he scored six goals in 78 appearances for the Three Lions. John Terry has won four Premier League trophies with Chelsea, while clinching the FA Cup title with the Stamford Bridge outfit on five occasions. In 2012 John Terry helped Chelsea beat Bayern Munich in the Champions League final and that is considered his biggest success. In 2009 he reportedly had a four-month affair with Wayne Bridge’s girlfriend and that is why he is considered one of the most disliked footballers in the world of football.
Highlighted Team (Ipswich Town):
Ipswich Town are an English football club that was formed in 1878. Portman Road has been the home ground of Ipswich Town since 1894 and the capacity of the venue, which was expanded in 2002, is 30,311. The Tractor Boys compete in the Championship, but they used to play in the English Premier League in the past as well. Ipswich Town last appeared in the elite division in the 2001/2002 season. Ipswich won the FA Cup in 1978, with the team beating Arsenal (1-0) in the title game. However, the club’s biggest success came in 1981 when they outplayed AZ Alkmaar in the UEFA Cup final. It has to be noted that the Tractor Boys have yet to suffer a loss at home ground in the European competitions. Norwich City are regarded as Ipswich Town’s bitterest rivals and it is well known that the two sides take on each other in the East Anglian derby.
