Manchester City in 6th, Aston Villa in 5th & both teams fully determined to achieve 4th place & the Champions League so this really should be an intense, competitive match & a tough one to call at that.
This match is pivotal to the entire battle for 4th place because victory for either side will keep their hopes of the Champions League alive but defeat will just about destroy all hopes so there are massive pressures on both sides in this must win but cannot lose match.
How the Manchester City & Aston Villa players handle that pressure will determine this match but deciding which side will handle it better is tough & really does make the entire game hard to call either way.
Manchester City have certainly struggled in recent weeks with disappointing results & performances so they will be desperate & motivated to bounce back while Aston Villa have been in excellent form in the last few weeks and will believe they can get a result so it’s going to be a real battle.
Given the massive pressures involved for both Man City & Aston Villa, a low scoring draw was a really tempting option & will certainly appeal to many punters but we are going to take a punt on home advantage being the key & tip the likes of Bellamy & Tevez to inspire Man City to a huge home win & destroy Aston Villa’s Champions League dreams.
