TIP OF THE DAY: Aston Villa – Liverpool: The team from Villa Park is holding onto the fourth position!

On Monday, of course, there is a much weaker betting offer than was the case last weekend, and this time we have analyzed the match between Aston Villa and Liverpool. The start of the duel between these two teams is scheduled for 9 PM.

Aston Villa: Just Two Steps Away from the Champions League!

This season could be historic for the club from Birmingham in many ways, especially since the team from Villa Park is on the verge of qualifying for the Champions League. For those who may not know, Aston Villa has won the English league title seven times, the last being in 1981. Additionally, the club from Birmingham has won the FA Cup seven times, along with five League Cups, making it one of the most trophy-laden clubs in England, although their last major trophy was the mentioned League Cup in 1996. However, by far the greatest achievement of this team was winning the Champions Cup (today’s Champions League) in 1982, following a victory over Bayern Munich. That same year, the English representative also won the European Super Cup after defeating Barcelona, marking that year as the most successful in the history of the Birmingham team.

This season, Aston Villa is performing at a very high level, giving all fans of the club plenty of reasons to be pleased. Firstly, with two rounds to go, the team is in fourth place on the table, four points ahead of fifth-placed Tottenham, meaning that if the home team wins this duel against Liverpool, Aston Villa will definitely secure a spot in the Champions League, which is certainly more than anyone could have expected at the start of the season, although Unai Emery had hinted in the latter part of last season that Villa could be a legitimate candidate for elite competition. In the last five matches, the Birmingham club has achieved two victories, two draws, and only one defeat, which occurred in the last round when they lost away to a challenging Brighton with a score of 1:0.

At home in the league, Emery’s pupils have claimed twelve victories, with only three defeats and as many draws, and had this club performed a little better away, we might also be talking about a fight for the league title, which frankly would be too much. There remains regret for the elimination in the Conference League semifinals against Olympiacos, even though the English representative was considered one of the main favorites to win the trophy before the start of Europe’s third-tier club competition, and it must be admitted that the Greek representative was better in both matches and fully deserved their place in the grand final against Fiorentina. Finally, in the first part of the season, Liverpool and Aston Villa played a good match at Anfield where the Reds easily won 3:0.

Liverpool: The Reds faltered when it was least needed!

Liverpool started the season powerfully, and there’s little doubt that the Reds showed the most promise among the title contenders in the first half of the season, as evidenced by their first-place position in the table. Everything was going according to plan until Jürgen Klopp announced midway through the season, while the Reds were in contention for all possible trophies, that he would leave the club at the end of the season. It was a huge shock, especially for all the fans of this club, with whom this manager had won a Champions League and an English league title, the latter after a thirty-year wait, which prompted indescribable celebrations. As we’ve already mentioned, City was in the running for all trophies, and this team had already claimed one, the League Cup, after a triumph in the grand final against Chelsea, following extra time.

As for the FA Cup, the Reds were eliminated in the quarterfinals by Manchester United, albeit a weaker United than ever, in a spectacular duel at Old Trafford where the home team won 4-3. In the Europa League, the English representative shone all the way to the quarterfinals, but then Atalanta arrived at Anfield, unexpectedly winning away with a score of 0-3, making it clear after the first match that Liverpool, despite huge ambitions, would be eliminated from the Europa League. In the return leg, Klopp’s pupils won in Bergamo, 0-1, but of course, that was not enough to advance to the semifinals of Europe’s second-tier club competition.

Finally, the Premier League. We’ve already mentioned that Liverpool spent a good part of the season in first place on the table, however, when it was least needed, the team from Anfield played several consecutive disastrous matches, so there will be no English league title this year either, as the Reds currently sit in third place on the table, eight points behind first-placed Arsenal, who to be fair, has a game in hand, but even without that, it’s clear that it’s an insurmountable point advantage. Lately, Liverpool has been performing very poorly in the league, so in the last five matches, this team has suffered two defeats, one draw, but also achieved two victories. In the last round, Klopp’s charges celebrated at their stadium against Tottenham in a fantastic duel where we saw six goals, and which ultimately went to the Reds who won 4-2.
