After a lacklustre welcoming party back into the English Premier League last season, Aston Villa has made a surprisingly great start to a brand new 2020/2021 season.
Seven games into the new season and Villa have secured five wins, with star player Jack Grealish claiming four goals and five assists during these fixtures. He has been a critical player for Dean Smith’s squad, whilst also turning a few heads wearing in an England shirt during the International break.
Brighton has struggled to convert their creative attempts into goals and is now sitting in the relegation zone without just one win this term. Injury concerns could be another problem for Albion. With confidence at an all-time low since their Premier League stint, Brighton could be heading back into the lower leagues if their performances do not switch up fast.
Fives wins this season, three of which came up against league standouts Liverpool, Leicester, and Arsenal. A great start to the season saw a slight hiccup with losses to Leeds and Southampton, but the comeback came quickly when Villa shutout ‘The Gunners’.
Score prediction: Aston Villa 3 – Brighton 1

Villareal has begun their season campaign on fire, especially on home turf. Undefeated whenever they have played host this season, this weekend they will attempt a sixth consecutive home win. But standing in the way are last season’s champions Real Madrid.
Madrid is currently sat in the fourth position of the league, two places behind Villareal, and can steal their position with a win this weekend. With that said, our interest lays in the goals market.
Plenty of goals on the scoresheet has been a common occurrence inside La Ceramica this season, and if history repeats itself, then these two clubs will find a goal or two this weekend. The last three times Madrid and Villareal met, a 2-2 scoreline was repeated.
Score prediction: Villareal 2 – Real Madrid 2

Last season’s Bundesliga 2 champions, Arminia Bielefeld, are yet to register more than a single win since their move to top-flight football. Across their previous five fixtures, they have been handed a loss on each occasion. They'll be facing fourth-placed Leverkusen who remains undefeated during this season.
Leverkusen’s front line has been tearing defences apart with eleven goals in their previous three fixtures, and will now be drooling at the weakened back four in Bielefeld.
The relegation zone seemed far away for Bielefeld after the first two matchdays, one win and one draw had the club’s spirits high. But as the league’s elite began to settle in, the expected level of football inside Bielefeld started to show.
I expect a high scoring outfit in Leverkusen to continue raising their goal tally this weekend; I’m not going to complicate it and take the straight win for Leverkusen away from home.
Score prediction: Bielefeld 1 – Leverkusen 3
