Premier League is back in action with lots of Interesting fixtures this weekend. One of them is AVL vs SOU where Steven Gerrad’s Aston Villa invites Ralph Hasenhuttl Southampton on the ground of Villa Park.
Aston Villa is almost grappling throughout the season. They are in a position of 17th on the table and won only one match, which probably justifies the team’s balance this season and is not up to par. In their last match, they managed to get a draw with Man City. An opening goal by Haaland seemed like more will be on the way but a great defending and 74mins goal by L. Bailey saved their team to get another defeat in this Premier League. They should be feeling a bit confident after this match and could give a surprise to The Saints.
Southampton is uncertain this season, standing in 12th position shows the inconsistency of the team. After losing the game by 1-0 against The Wolves they need to get back in the saddle and cover up the losses by getting only victories in the game.

AVL vs SOU Dream 11 Top Picks and Player Stats
Aston Villa player who plays forward for his team is looking good this season. Ollie Watkins has scored only 1 goal but made crucial 2 assists which makes him understand the midfield and shows that he also falls back and tries to make some passes which many strikers don’t do. He has made 35 appearances and scored 11 goals for his team. We can see him as having a great impact on the other team and especially on this match.
Southampton forward is gushing and scoring some bangers for his team. Che Adams has played 6 matches and scored 4 goals for his team which make him consistent and a perfect striker that delivers whenever the team needs him. Against Cambridge United, he scored 2 goals and made it their game and they won by 3-0 with the help of D. Ballard in the last 10 minutes. He can be a perfect danger for Aston Villa defenders and they need to take care of this player if they don’t want to concede goals or perfect assists.

AVL vs SOU Prediction: Who is going to Win this match
Both the teams are in the lower plate of the table and balancing them with each other is quite reasonable and more likely they are in the same boat. Aston Villa has a great team if we look into the paper including great players but Southampton is doing a bit well in these past matches. Again their stats against each other also do not vary much so this could be a low-scoring match and come out as a draw.
We predict this match as a draw as both teams are equally leveled on paper.
