Aston Villa host Legia Warsaw in the UEFA Conference League

With a 2-1 victory over Tottenham on Sunday, Aston Villa strengthened their position in the top four, and their home form is so strong that Legia Warsaw should be afraid.

Unai Emery’s team unexpectedly lost 3-2 in Poland to begin their Europa Conference group stage campaign poorly, but they appear well-prepared to recover.

Legia have scored 12 goals away from home in just five league games this year. Villa prevailed against Tottenham, although Spurs unable to convert several obvious opportunities, leaving Villa’s defence vulnerable on multiple occasions.

For those who enjoy a correct-score wager, a 3-1 home victory may be an alluring offer even though the visitors might not have enough to win.

Players to watch

Aston Villa: Watkins

With 12 goals in all competitions so far this season, Watkins has been in incredible form for Villa. The England international was also called up for England matches after putting up a strong show for Emery’s team this season—something Warsaw will undoubtedly attempt to counter.

Warsaw: Tomáš Pekhart

Tomáš Pekhart, who has six goals to lead Warsaw from the front, will be looking to pose a threat to Villa’s defence, which has been unstoppable so far this season. Pekhart intends to guide his team to the Round of 16.
