There was European heartbreak for Aston Villa on Thursday, but they can quickly get over that this weekend.

If results go their way, Villa could go into this game already confirmed for a top-four finish and a return to the top table of European football since their 1982-83 run to the quarterfinals of the European Cup.

At worst, Villa will just need three points from their final two games to secure their spot in the Champions League, but we can’t back them against Liverpool.

Liverpool can still mathematically win the title as things stand, but nobody counts them among the race anymore and they could be officially out of it come Monday. Instead, the Reds will be focusing on ending Jurgen Klopp’s reign on a high.

The Reds enter this clash as favorites at -140 odds to win the match. You can stream the match on FuboTV on Monday at 3 p.m. ET.

Champions League in Play for Aston Villa After Europa Exit

Aston Villa got dumped out of the Europa Conference League at the semifinal stage by Olympiacos, but Unai Emery has urged his side to focus on Champions League qualification amid the fight with Tottenham.

Villa can seal Champions League qualification at the weekend if they beat Liverpool on Monday or if the Spurs lose to Burnley on Saturday.

Villa enters this game on a run of three consecutive defeats across all competitions and four without victory. Of course, two of those defeats came home and away to Olympiacos in the semifinals of the Europa Conference League, but sandwiched in between was a 1-0 loss to Brighton.

Regardless of what happens here, many will still expect Villa to secure Champions League football, which has Emery high up on the list of favorites to win Manager of the Season.

Even though Aston Villa has been a generally difficult team to beat at Villa Park in the league this season, Liverpool is the odds-on favorite here.

Anytime Goalscorer: Ollie Watkins is Due to Hit Prop

The main man upfront for the Lions this season has been Ollie Watkins. He was close to overthrowing Erling Haaland for the Golden Boot before the Norwegian’s four goals last week.

His 19 league goals account for 26% of Villa’s Premier League goals and he will want to put things right after missing a penalty in last May’s meeting with Liverpool.

Watkins hasn’t scored for three consecutive games in the league. The last time that happened, he responded with a brace in the next match. If you love your soccer player props, you should back him to find the back of the net at +160.
