Sheffield United, the opening program has it all this season. With Wolverhampton, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester City, the Blades deal with five European Cup, contenders on the first eight match days. All the more important are the other three encounters, in which the red-whites must collect points in order not to slip into the table cellar early.
If we believe the odds of the best bookmakers before the match between Aston Villa and Sheffield United, this endeavor should turn out to be extremely complicated, because a clear favorite cannot be recognized in the aforementioned duel.
While Sheffield is already playing the second game of the season after the 2-0 defeat against Wolves, the Villans have the premiere on the program, as the game on the first matchday against Manchester City due to their participation in the Champions League final tournament had been relocated.
The team, which last season only managed to stay in the league on the last day of the match, wants to start the new season with a sense of achievement and ensure a positive atmosphere within the club. The bottom line between Aston Villa and Sheffield would be to refrain from predicting the outcome of the game and instead keep an eye on the goal market. We don’t believe in that many hits on Monday evening.

Aston Villa – stats & current form
For Aston Villa, the 2020/21 season is once again primarily about collecting the points necessary to stay in the league as early as possible. After the team of coach Dean Smith only fixed relegation on the last matchday last season, the club from Birmingham does not want to get into such a threatening situation this time.
In return, those responsible were also active on the transfer market and signed Olie Watkins and Bertrand Traore, among others, two highly talented offensive players. Emiliano Martinez from Arsenal was added to the box during the week. The biggest coup wasn’t a transfer, but the fact that superstar Jack Grealish will continue to appear in burgundy blue. On Tuesday, his contract was extended to 2025, which was duly celebrated in Birmingham.
Grealish stays with Aston Villa!
The captain, who had been associated, with numerous top clubs, presented himself in strong form on Tuesday evening and became the match-winner in the appropriate 3-1 success in the first competitive game against Burton Albion as part of the EFL Cup. A new addition also met with Watkins. Compared to the previous season, it is undoubtedly the offensive that has to provide more relief and goals so that the bottom line gets more points.
Since the Villans will face one of the most stable defensives of the preseason, on Monday evening and we cannot conclusively say whether the Smith has improved their preparation. In the game with the ball to such an extent that they can see progress, on the first day of play, we dare to tip between Aston Villa and Sheffield United that no goals scored in the first half.
The probable lineup of Aston Villa:
➤ Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett; McGinn, Luiz, Hourihane; Trezeguet, Watkins, Grealish

Sheffield United – stats & current form
It took less than ten minutes for it to be certain that Sheffield United’s start to the season would go badly. In the previous week, the blades were already behind after six turns of the hands with 0: 2 at home and could not fight back against stable Wolves.
Just because of the sleepy start and the resulting bankruptcy, it can be assumed, on Monday evening, that the red-whites will be, particularly focused and careful in the initial phase. Before the match between Aston Villa and Sheffield United, the odds for a relatively unspectacular first half are interesting given the aforementioned factors.
Sheffield had the fourth-best defense in the league in 2019/20
There isn’t a secret either that the Blades had big problems abroad towards the end of last season. For more than six games, Chris Wilder, the team has been waiting for a full sense of achievement in the distance. During this period, McBurnie, McGoldrick, and Co. managed only a meager two gates, which in turn underlines the offensive lull.
In return, it should not forget that Sheffield had the fourth-best defense in the country last year with just 39 goals conceded. Even if experience has shown that the second year after the promotion is the harder one, this stability can again become the X-factor for the Wilder. In any case, we believe in a typical SUFC match on Monday evening and therefore tend to score few goals.
The probable lineup of Sheffield United:
➤ Ramsdale; Basham, Egan, O’Connell; Baldock, Berge, Norwood, Lundstram, Stevens; McBurnie, McGoldrick

Aston Villa vs Sheffield United Betting Odds and Predictions
With Aston Villa and Sheffield United, two clubs face each other on Monday evening, which is expected to be pretty low at the end of this Premier League season. While the Blades were in action for the first time last week and lost 2-0 at home against Wolverhampton after a catastrophic opening phase, it is the Villans’ first game of the new season.
According to the betting odds, a close, exciting, and the balanced course can be expected between Aston Villa and Sheffield United. As a rule, both teams do not have the attacking power to know what to do with possession of the ball. However, since the respective opponent will give the other party as few rooms as possible to switch, we are not assuming that many goals are scored.
