OddsDigger’s Tip

Hull City may have been relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season, but the hosts’ summer has been much more constructive than the Tigers.

Match Preview

Ahead of our Aston Villa vs Hull City preview, the Villans have added a fair amount of experience to their squad. John Terry, Chris Samba and Glenn Whelan have all featured in the Premier League in the past and should be good additions.

Steve Bruce’s men failed to hit the back of the net in their last two pre-season friendlies, firing blanks against both Walsall and Watford, with their offensive options perhaps needing a little more confidence.

Hull have managed to sign Leonid Slutskiy as their latest coach, after the departure of Marco Silva following their relegation, but his squad hasn’t been strengthened too much, influencing our Aston Villa vs Hull City predictions.

Kevin Stewart cost eight million pounds from Liverpool and will feature in midfield, with the likes of Abel Hernandez, Kamil Grosicki, Fraizer Campbell and Adams Diomande bound to be a threat at Championship level.

The Tigers have navigated their last four friendly games without suffering a defeat, turning in good performances against the likes of Ajax, Benfica and Bristol Rovers.

Aston Villa vs Hull City Prediction and Betting Advice

One loss in their last eight Championship matches at home suggest that Villa Park should see a good result on the opening day of the league, but Hull have a point to prove.

According to our Aston Villa vs Hull City picks, Steve Bruce should be confident that they can pick up a win against his former club, especially with his new defensive additions.
