Opta Stats: Norwich v Aston Villa

4May 2013

England - Premier League


Aston Villa thrashed Sunderland last week to move towards safety and now Paul Lambert takes his side to face his old club Norwich, who are also still in need of points to ensure survival.


Norwich have won just one of their last nine Barclays Premier League meetings with Aston Villa, drawing five and losing three. You can lay a Norwich win at 2.6.


Despite that, the Villans have only won one of their five Premier League trips to Carrow Road (D2 L2), with that win coming back in December 1993. The draw is priced at 3.4.


Following his goal against Sunderland last week, Gabriel Agbonlahor is now the top scoring Aston Villa player in Premier League history (61). Agbonlahor is 3.5 to find the net.


Christian Benteke has already scored more Premier League goals this season than any other Aston Villa player has managed in a single campaign (18). Benteke is 2.7 to add to his tally.


The Belgian has scored 13 goals in 15 league appearances in 2013. You can find odds of 6.5 on Benteke opening the scoring.


Norwich have won fewer games in 2013 than any other Premier League team (two). A Villa win can be backed at 3.5.


Villa have gone 19 league games without a clean sheet, the longest run of the season. Norwich are 1.31 to score against Villa.


Norwich have conceded more goals from outside the area than any other team in the Premier League this term (12). Villa are 1.37 to score a goal.


Christian Benteke has won more aerial duels than any other player in the top five European leagues (261). Villa are available at 2.12 in the Draw No Bet market.
