FootyMad's prediction ...
Its not been a very profitable last few weeks for Aston Villa, and I'm afraid the Footymad team cannot see it getting too much better here. Look no further than honours being even at the end of this one. Score draw
|Aston Villa||4 games since last home draw.|
|Blackburn R.||Undefeated in last 3 away games.|
