Find here our Aston Villa v Fulham betting preview with betting tips, predictions, probable lineups, team news, highest odds, exclusive promotions and no deposit free bets on this weekend's game!



Aston Villa rock solid at the back

Aston Villa secured their travel to Wembley after Mile Jedinak scored the only goal of their two-legged semi-final clash with Middlesbrough, who failed to register a single shot on target in the second leg. Steve Bruce's men have kept a clean sheet in 5 of their last 7 matches. Six of Villa’s last seven games have ended with under 2.5 goals. The Villans recorded a 2-1 victory over Fulham when the sides met at Villa Park in October, but the Cottagers gained revenge in February (2-0).

Villa are without Neil Taylor and Axel Tuanzebe. Egyptian right-back Ahmed Elmohamady is a major doubt, with James Bree likely to replace the former Hull City man. Alan Hutton should continue to deputise at left-back due to Neil Taylor’s hamstring problem. Lewis Grabban is expected to spearhead the attack, with the likes of Robert Snodgrass, Albert Adomah, Jack Grealish and Conor Hourihane favourite to play behind him in a 4-1-4-1 formation. Mile Jedinak will anchor the midfield while Jason Terry and James Chester will form the centre-back duo.

Fulham best Championship team in 2018

Fulham fought back from a 1-0 first-leg deficit at Derby County to win 2-1 on aggregate. The Cottagers have been one of the best sides in Championship in 2018. They have won 22 and drawn six of their last 32 Championship matches and missed out on automatic promotion on the last day of the season. They recently had an amazing 23-match unbeaten streak that was broken on May 6 when they suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Birmingham City.

Sheyi Ojo is out and while Floyd Ayite is back from a hamstring problem, Aboubakar Kamara is likely to feature from the off. Lucas Piazon will also be in contention for a start. The other two spots in attack will be occupied by Ryan Sessegnon and Aleksandr Mitrovic. The likes of Kevin McDonald, Tom Cairney and Stefan Johansen will play from the off in midfield while Matt Targett, Tim Ream, Denis Odoi and Ryan Fredericks will form the four man backline.
