This is Villa’s first league game of the season, and they just won their last Carabao Cup game with 3-1. Moreover, they beat Man Utd in pre-season warm-up.
On the other hand, Sheffield kept their original lineup this season. However, they lost their debut game against Wolves with 2-0. Moreover, they have to play consecutive away games with a weaker stamina.
Therefore Villa are expected to draw this game at least with the home field advantage.
