The Second City Derby takes centre stage this weekend in the Championship as Aston Villa play host to Birmingham City at Villa Park.
The two great rivals have had contrasting seasons so far in the Championship with Villa going for promotion and the Blues more concerned about getting away from relegation this year.
However, both are in decent form going into this clash and so it should be a tight affair with form often going out of the window in games like this.
With kick-off on Sunday, then, we think it’s only right that the Midlands pair are the latest subjects of our FLW Duels feature – so here’s the tail of the tape…
It could, then, be a case of look away now Blues fans when you look at the comparison between the two sides with their being plenty of facets where they are beaten by the men in claret and blue.
Villa fans will obviously enjoy looking at this meanwhile, whilst they’re also surely going to be eager to remind their neighbours of the history they have backing them up.
However, what Blues fans will tell you is that, despite Villa having the edge in a lot of areas, none of it actually matters when it comes to a game of football and the club should be confident they can get something here.
It will be tough, but they are playing well at the moment and they should be aiming to upset the apple cart at Villa Park come kick-off.
