The second leg of the semi-finals in the English Championship will see Aston Villa travel to face West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday.
Aston Villa did their bit in the first leg by winning it by a 2-1 scoreline. The team has been looking really good lately, and their players have stepped up to showcase their will to return to the Premier League. Their main motive in this game has to be not let the opposition score a goal, and even if they manage to draw it out, it will be enough for them to book their berth. This game holds a lot of importance to who will be making the final spot in the terms of teams who are going to be promoted to Tier 1.
Meanwhile, West Bromwich Albion have got their backs against the walls. They will be without their star Dwight Gayle as he is suspended, and now the real test of character and bench will be done. Even though they were favourites to easily win this tie, things have gotten a bit more interesting than what they were before. The team is really strong and has decent players who can lead the side to glory, and they are expected to do the same here or else this season will be all a waste if the side is not promoted to the Premier League.
