Our football match prediction:
Bristol City welcome Aston Villa at their Ashton Gate Stadium on day 5 of the 2017/2018 Premier League campaign. The Robins sit in 11th place in the standings ahead of the visit of John Terry and Co. and they played out a goalless draw with Millwall at the weekend. Bristol City are on a three-game winless run in the league and, no doubt, they are eager to return to winning ways. Aston Villa, on the other hand, recorded their first win of the season at the weekend, with the team beating Norwich City 4-2 at their Villa Park and, no doubt, they are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Bristol. The Villans are considered as one of main favourites to secure promotion to the Premier League and seeing that they impressed in the triumph over the Canaries, we predict that the visitors will give fans yet another reason for celebration on Friday evening.

Highlighted Team (Aston Villa):
Aston Villa are one of the three clubs that dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign. The Villans host their rivals at Villa Park, the stadium that was opened in 1897 and its’ capacity is 42,682. However, it has to be noted that the highest attendance recorded at the stadium was 76,588 when Aston Villa faced Derby County in the FA Cup back in 1946. Aston Villa’s fiercest rivals are Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion. Nonetheless, the rivalry between Aston Villa and Wolves and Coventry City is big as well. Aston Villa have won seven First Division (Premier League) trophies, with the team clinching seven FA Cup trophies as well. The team’s biggest success, though, came in 1982 when they won the European Cup. The Villans defeated Bayern Munich (1-0) in the title game and Peter Withe was named the man of the match.
