Tips for this weekend's game, brought to you by Coral

CITY host Aston Villa looking to bounce back from Saturday's defeat at Barnsley. Let’s see where we can cash-in with official partner Coral…

Over 2.5 Goals has been the ‘go to’ bet this season, paying out in seven of the last eight at home. But Villa’s goal stats suggest the opposite – just one of their last seven away matches have generated more than two goal. At just 19/20 better to look elsewhere.

The Norwich Win looks better value at 13/10. The Canaries home record is almost perfect v teams outside the Top Six, with six wins from seven. Villa have managed just one away win all season (D5 L4).

In four of those six home wins – and in seven of the nine wins overall – both teams have scored. So taking the Norwich Win & Both Teams to Score makes sense at 18/5.

Plus, Norwich have been leading at Half-time in 10 of the 11 wins this season, including all six at home. You’ll get 29/10 backing the Norwich/ Norwich option in the Half-time/ Full-time market.

For bigger prices, we need to look to the Correct Score market. Three of the eight wins this season have ended 2-1, available at 8/1. But Villa have failed to score in half of their away matches, so 2-0 might also be worth a nibble at 10/1.
