Long waiting semi final for both teams ,but only one will make it to the Wembley.Last game was the was the fourth meeting between these sides this season and Villa recorded second win (W2,D1,L1).
Hosts are now favourites to qualify,at home they have lost just two games for whole season and their defence at Villa Park have conceded just one goal in the last 368 minutes of football. Now draw here will be enough to see them at Wembley.
Boro away from home recorded only two wins in last nine Championship games(2W,4D,3L). Tony Pullis’ side have to score a goal to have some chances here and good news for them is tjat they have scored in their last seven away days, and that at least giving them some hope.
Boro are unbeaten at Villa Park in their last seven visits in all competitions (W4, D3), most recently beating them 2-0 here this season – a scoreline which would see them to Wembley here.Five of the last seven H2H meetings between the sides here have seen both teams score.
All five of Boro’s last five away games this season have also seen both sides find the back of the net.While Villa have scored in last 13 home games and Boro have no choice and will go for goals , BTTS is good choice.
