Can Man City break Aston Villa's impressive home record?
Aston Villa has won their past 13 Premier League home games.

Aston Villa is currently the strongest home team in the Premier League, having won 13 consecutive home matches. The last time they dropped points at home in the Premier League was on February 18, when they lost to Arsenal. 
Under Unai Emery's management, Villa is currently sitting at 4th place in the league with 29 points. Interestingly, they can overtake tonight's opponent, Manchester City, if they secure their 14th consecutive home win.

◉ 1-2: Aston Villa vs. Man City 

Previous results favor a Manchester City victory, and despite Villa's impressive home record, City must be considered the favorites. City has played the last 3 Premier League matches to draws, games where they should have earned more points. It is a team hungry for revenge that arrives at Villa Park to get back on the winning track. City possesses so much quality in their squad that they are likely to create chances in the game, and one can hope that they have worked on their sharpness compared to the last few matches.

City has conceded 8 goals in the last 3 Premier League matches, so they need to get their defense structured for the game; otherwise, they may have problems with Villa's in-form offensive duo of Watkins and Diaby. If City can successfully dominate the game without turning into an open match with numerous counterattacks for Villa, they are likely to secure the victory. If it becomes a lively match going back and forth, City may struggle to contain Villa's offensive threats.

We believe that Manchester City will showcase their quality and win the match, thus breaking Aston Villa's impressive streak. Currently, you can get odds of 1.70 for a City victory at Betway
