Aston Villa vs Wolves Prediction & Match Preview

Aston Villa will be looking to make amends for a 1-0 loss to ten-man Sheffield United when they take on Wolverhampton on Matchday 27. 

The Villans have been having their ups and downs of late, but, as things stand now, they are on the right track to finish the season in top ten. 

Jack Grealish is rated doubtful for the match, as well as Wesley, who will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.

The Wolves, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 4-1 loss to Manchester City. 

Wolverhampton have been struggling ever since key attacker Raul Jimenez suffered an injury, and seeing that Aston Villa aim to keep their Europa League hopes alive, home win should be considered. 

Podence and Marcal remain in the recovery room as well. You should know that the Villans are eyeing their sixth home win of the season.
