Our football match prediction:
Saturday’s football match at Molineux Stadium pits together Wolverhampton and Aston Villa. The Wolves did well to hold Sheffield Wednesday to a goalless draw at Hillsborough Stadium and that certainly helped the team regain a much-needed confidence. The Wolves are eager to escape the danger zone in the Championship standings and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at Aston Villa in Saturday’s football match. Wolverhampton recorded only one win in previous seven home fixtures in the league, but the game against the Villans could be the turning point for the hosts. Aston Villa are tough to beat at home, but their performances on the road leave a lot to be desired and we would not be surprised if the visitors return home empty-handed. When the two teams met at Villa Park earlier this season they played out a 1-1 draw, but we are tempted to put our money on the Wolves this time out.
Highlighted Player (Danny Batth):
At the age of 10 Daniel Danny Batth joined Wolverhampton football academy. He was soon named the captain of the Wolves youth team and nobody was surprised when he made his debut for the senior team. The defender, who was born on 21 September, 1990 scored nine goals in 140 league appearances for Wolverhampton, but it has to be noted that he played for the likes of Colchester United, Sheffield United and their bitter rivals Sheffield Wednesday on loan as well. Danny Batth won the Football League One with Wolverhampton in the 2013/2014 season and, speaking of his individual awards, he was named Wolves Young Professional of the Year in the 2009/2010 campaign. Batth book his place in the 2013/2014 PFA League One Team of the Year as well. The 191-cm-tall centre back scored his first professional goal on 20 February in Colchester United’s 1-0 victory over Oldham Athletic. Daniel Batth was born in Brierley Hill, West Midlands and he is the only footballer to play in all 46 matches for Wolves in the 2013/2014 season.
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.
