Our football match prediction:
Villa Park will host Saturday’s football game between Aston Villa and Norwich City. The Villans have been in a fine form of late and they recorded five wins in previous six league fixtures. Steve Bruce’s team head into the game following a 2-0 win at Wigan Athletic and, no doubt, they are high on confidence ahead of the visit of Norwich City. Aston Villa are eleven points behind the play-offs berth, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for the hosts. Thanks to a 2-0 win over Barnsley the Canaries put an end to their six-match winless run in the national championship, but they face a difficult task in Saturday’s clash against Villa. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, we predict that they will share the spoils at Villa Park on Matchday 39.
Highlighted Player (Gabriel Agbonlahor):
Gabriel Agbonlahor was born in Birmingham on 13 October, 1986. The English footballer began his youth career in his home-town club Aston Villa and he has been playing for the Villa Park outfit ever since. Agbonlahor, though, played ten league games for the likes of Watford and Sheffield Wednesday in 2005 on loan. The pacey attacker, who is capable of playing as a winger as well, scored 16 goals for Aston Villa in the 2009/2010 Premier League campaign and he helped the team made it to the League Cup final the same season. In 2015 Gabriel Agbonlahor participated in the FA Cup final with Aston Villa, but Arsenal proved to be a big catch for the Villans. The Gunners crushed Aston Villa 4-0 in the title game. Agbonlahor has 16 caps for England U21 team and he played three matches for the senior team. He has yet to score for the England national team. It has to be noted that Gabriel’s father is Nigerian, while his mother is Scottish.
Highlighted Team (Norwich City):
After spending only one season in the Premier League, Norwich City dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. Norwich City are located in Norwich, Norfolk and they welcome their rivals at Carrow Road. The stadium was built and opened in 1935 and the capacity of the venues is 27,137 (all-seater). However the stadium’s record attendance is 43,984. The Canaries have won two League Cup trophies (1973, 1975) and their main rivals are Ipswich Town. The two teams have been facing each other in the East Anglian Derby since 1902. The colour of Norwich City’s home kit is yellow and green and that is the main reason why they are known as the Canaries. The likes of Kevin Keeland, Ian Culverhouse, Steve Bruce, Duncan Forbes, Mark Bowen, Darren Huckerby, Ian Crook, Martin Peters, Darren Eadier, Chris Sutton and Iwan Roberts are notable footballers who played for the Carrow Road outfit in the past.
