BRE vs AVL Dream11 Prediction for Brentford vs Aston Villa Premier League Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team


BRE vs AVL Dream11: Aston Villa have benefitted from a longer recovery time between fixtures compared to opponents Brentford, who face a huge physical test here having competed against Man City only four days previous to this match. However, the Bees had successfully won their last two home league games before the visit of Man City and against a Villa side significantly weakened defensively by the absence of Mings, Brentford have every right to be confident that they claim at least a point in this one. Consider utilising the double chance market in backing the hosts to gain either a victory or a draw.

Brentford News

Injury Report and Unavailability:

  • Dominic Thompson was forced off injured late on against Manchester City on Wednesday and is unlikely to recover in time to face Aston Villa.
  • Rico Henry is expected to miss Brentford’s next two matches.

Expected Changes and Strategy:

  • Sergi Canos should earn a recall for Brentford and may even have to play on the left with Henry and Thompson both expected to miss out.
  • Christian Norgaard will return in midfield for Brentford after missing their 1-0 defeat to City through suspension.
  • Kristoffer Ajer is back working with the group but a return in the FA Cup next week is more realistic for the defender.

Brentford Starting XI (Likely)


Aston Villa News

Injury Report and Unavailability:

  • Tyrone Mings is suspended for Aston Villa owing to an accumulation of yellow cards in the Premier League.

Expected Changes and Strategy:

  • Morgan Sanson will hope to have done enough to keep his place in the side from the 3-1 defeat to Chelsea last time Villa played.
  • John McGinn is back available for Villa after missing the defeat to Chelsea on Boxing Day.
  • Gerrard’s experiment with a 4-3-1-2 formation to pair Danny Ings and Ollie Watkins up front didn’t exactly go to plan against Chelsea.

Who will win today’s BRE vs AVL match?

  • Brentford only lost 1-0 to Manchester City on Wednesday but they never troubled the runaway league leaders. They barely laid a glove on City, who didn’t even get out of second gear. Brentford have now lost four of their last six home league matches.
  • Aston Villa have endured a heavily disrupted Christmas with games postponed either side of their Boxing Day defeat to Chelsea. Villa have alternated perfectly between wins and losses across the last six Premier League matches they have actually played, with Steven Gerrard’s defeats as manager coming against Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea.
  • Brentford are surprisingly unbeaten in their last seven meetings with Villa but that run is under serious threat on Sunday given the sheer amount of absentees they are dealing with.

Odds to Win:

The odds in favor of a win for Aston Villa in this clash is 2.42 as per bet365.
