Blades to sharpen promotion hopes

369

Sheffield United travel to Aston Villa this evening and can grab the win they need to go top of the Championship.

United to win @ 6/4

The Blades have been there or thereabouts all season and have lost just one of their last seven on the road in the league.

Villa themselves are undefeated in nine of their last 10 outings on their own patch, but they have slipped to ninth following a poor run of results and only the inconsistency of those above them is keeping the Villans in the play-off mix.

Dean Smith will be demanding a performance although his side have a habit of leaving themselves open at the back, and the way the Blades attack as a unit could make it a successful night for the South Yorkshire outfit.

Leverkusen to win and both to score @ 2/1

Over in Germany, Bayer Leverkusen will look to kick on from beating Bayern Munich 3-1 last time out in the league when they head to Mainz.

Die Werkself have had a mixed campaign to date and will be keen to forget the midweek DFB-Pokal defeat to second division Heidenheim.

Peter Bosz made changes for that one and will be looking for his team to put pressure on Mainz from the off.

Tonight’s opponents were downed 3-0 at Augsburg last weekend and while they are unbeaten in three, they are unlikely to have enough for the win.
