Aston Villa will be keen to put last week’s disappointments behind them when they face Brighton & Hove Albion in a mid-season friendly match. The contest between the two Premier League sides will be difficult to call due to different reasons. They are not competing with their full-strength squads since many of their players have traveled to Qatar for the World Cup. This could lead to a surprise result on the pitch. Besides, friendly games are more about getting match fitness than results.

In the Premier League table, Aston Villa are placed 12th with 18 points from 15 games, while Brighton are sitting seventh with 21 points from 14 matches. Villa’s performances improved since the arrival of Unai Emery. However, he is still new to the job and will use the mid-season break as a chance to help the players get used to his system. They were beaten 3-1 by Cardiff City last week in their first friendly. Meanwhile, Brighton & Hove Albion will hope to begin their first friendly on a positive note.
