Stoke City v Aston Villa Football Match – 06.04.2013 – Premier League Preview, Prediction, Squad
Stoke City v Aston Villa Football Match will be played on 06.04.2013 at Britannia Stadium, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire for a Premier League match. M. Clattenburg will be the referee for this match.
Stoke City are in 13th position in the Premier League with 34 points. They are joint with Southampton and Norwich City with the same points but lie in the middle of them both. They are a team that could fall into the relegation zone. At the start of the season, Stoke City were good, with most of their matches earning draws but near the end of the season, it is fair to say they are struggling. They have been losing a lot of matches recently. They haven’t won a match in their last 5 matches. Stoke City are a physical side in the Premier League, maybe they can’t perform as well, when the matches that are coming thick and fast near the end of the season.
Aston Villa are sitting in 18th position with 30 points. They are in the Relegation zone and will be looking to get out of it. Queens Park Rangers and Reading are the 2 teams below them with 23 points each and Wigan Athletic are drawn level on points with Aston Villa but sit just above them in 17th position. If Aston Villa win this match and Wigan Athletic or Sunderland draw or lose their next match, they could be temporary out of this relegation zone. In their last 5 matches, Aston Villa has lost 3 and won 2. Their recent lost was against Liverpool playing at home with a 1-2 scoreline.
I predict Stoke City to win this match as they are playing at home with the home advantage. Aston Villa will most likely try and play at their best level to avoid relegation.
The match will begin on April 6, 2013 3:00 PM BST
Match Prediction: Stoke City Win. Correct Score 2 – 1
