Enjoying a nine-match winning streak and in fine attacking form, Al Hain-Cole expects Smith's men to set a new club record in a high-scoring clash

Aston Villa will be aiming to set a new club record when they welcome Millwall to Villa Park in Monday’s Championship clash.

Dean Smith’s men have won their last nine matches in a row, equalling a record that has stood since December 1910.

Latest odds

However, without a win in four matches against this opposition, they are priced at 4/7 (1.57) with William Hill to take their winning streak into double figures for the first time in club history.

The Lions have come out on top in six of the last nine meetings between this pair, and can be backed at 24/5 (5.80) to pull off a shock win in this one.

The sides shared a 0-0 draw when they last met at this ground back in December 2017, and you can get odds of 16/5 (4.20) on them cancelling each other out once again here.

Team news

Kortney Hause should return after missing the last few matches with injury, while Tommy Elphick and James Chester could also be in contention. Tammy Abraham will face a late fitness test.

Ben Thompson is an injury concern after coming off with a hamstring issue in Friday’s draw with Brentford, with Byron Webster a long-term absentee.

High-scoring clash

Having hovered around the outskirts of the top six for much of the season, the Villans now look assured of a place in the play-offs following their recent winning streak.

This is largely thanks to an attack that has scored at least twice in eight of the nine successive victories, making up for a defence that has conceded in five of the most recent seven fixtures.

Predictions

With Neil Harris’ men having failed to score just once in nine away matches and netted in 18 of the previous 20, odds of 6/5 (2.20) seem generous on Villa extending their winning streak in a high-scoring match featuring three goals or more.

Villa to win and over 2.5 goals at 6/5 (2.20) for a 1.5pt stake with William Hill
