Aston Villa vs. Wolves: Who will come out on top in this all-Premier League EFL Cup tie?



It’s Premier League versus Premier League once again in the Carabao Cup as Wolves travel to Villa Park to take on Aston Villa.

League Two high-flyers Crewe saw their EFL Cup journey end prematurely after a 6-1 thrashing by Aston Villa in the second round. Dean Smith’s side then went on to win 3-1 at Brighton in round three.

Villa now finally have a home tie in the competition. They host Nuno Espirito Santo’s side on Wednesday night in another all-Premier League tie.

Wolves are currently balancing top-flight life with several lengthy away trips in the Europa League, and now have an EFL Cup Round of 16 fixture to deal with as well.

The visitors are 21/10 to progress to the next round of the competition. The hosts are currently available at 13/10.

A draw can be backed at 12/5.

Wolves incidentally drew their last encounter in the tournament against Championship strugglers Reading, with the former Premier League club equalising well into injury time, before eventually losing out on penalties to an inexperienced Wolves XI.

That game finished 1-1, and it’s 5/1 for a repeat of that scoreline after 90 minutes. 

It’s 15/4 for Villa to win and both teams to score. And it’s currently 5/1 for a Wolves victory and both teams to score.

Conor Hourihane has three goals in his last two EFL Cup games, and the Irish midfielder is 5/1 to score once again in this meeting, and 14/1 to open the scoring.

Captain Jack Grealish also scored in each of the previous rounds, and he’s also 5/1 to find another one this time around.Summer signing Wesley may get the nod up front for the home side. He can be backed at 22/1 to score the only goal in a 1-0 Villa win.

With both sides undoubtedly keen to remain in the top-flight this season, it’s difficult to know whether or not the respective managers will opt for an experienced or youthful starting 11, or perhaps a mixture of both.

Aston Villa and Wolves will have hoped for a better start to the domestic campaign, but there is quite simply no time to look back and wonder what could have been as the fixtures arrive thick and fast.

Smith’s side host Liverpool in the league just a couple of days after the Carabao Cup tie, and then travel to Wolves in their next Premier League encounter, so they may get a taste of what is to come on Wednesday evening.
