Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Aston Villa will be aiming to make a flying start to their Carabao Cup campaign when they take on Burton at Pirelli Stadium on Tuesday evening. The Brewers aim to bounce back from the League One defeat to Fleetwood, but they face an uphill task in the midweek clash. Burton were anything but impressive in the EFL Cup opener against Accrington, which is yet another reason why home win should not be considered. The Villans, on the other hand, were not in action at the weekend as their game against Man City was postponed.
The Premier League outfit have big ambitions for the 2020/21 Carabao Cup campaign, and they should take advantage of the fact that the game will be played behind closed doors due to the fierce of coronavirus spread. In their last meeting in the competition Burton shocked Aston Villa, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge. New signing Olie Watkins is likely to make his Villa debut against Burton.
