Watford vs Aston Villa: It is a six-drop indicator when Watford welcomes Aston Villa on Vicarage Road this weekend.
The two teams left the day after Christmas with positive notes, Villa on the happiest side after a 1-0 victory over downhill colleague Norwich City. Meanwhile, Watford had to fight hard and his discipline was tested in a 1-1 dead end with informing Sheffield United.
However, we have seen similar characteristics in these games, with the goalkeepers on each side emerging as the best player of the game. Obviously, these two teams give many scoring opportunities, while creating very few opportunities.
The Villans are ranked 18th in the standings with 18 points and could get them out of the danger zone with a victory here, while Watford is a place on the bottom of the rock, he needs another 7 points to enter the safety zone. .
The two managers expect a victory, as it is a match that could influence the league’s ranking at the end of the season.
The two teams are similar, but Watford is a little better with a local advantage on his side and positive points of a 2-0 victory over Manchester United in his last home game. Certainly, they have game changers in their ranks, the sad thing is that things have not worked as expected this season.
We can count on a change of tactics by Nigel Pearson this Saturday and he will not form a team to sit down and defend himself as we have seen in a stalemate against Sheffield United. It should be noted that the Villans do not have the physical aspect of a high work rate to squeeze half of their equipment like the Sheffield team.
On top of that, Villa has one of the worst records out of the league and concedes matched goals. His only road victory this season is against Norwich in October; They took 1 and lost 7 of the remaining 8.
In short, it will be a cat and mouse game, and we hope that Watford will score all three points, either by a single goal.
