Aston Villa played their second pre-season friendly in their German tour. Yesterday they played against Paderborn, with Aston Villa only managing another 1-1 draw. Rick ten Voorde scored for the hosts and it was Weimann who managed to level off for Aston Villa. The stand out player of the game was undoubtably Weimann who was Villa’s greatest threat. Weimann was very quick and had a few chances to score goals. Carruthers provided the assist and he also didn’t play too badly, Luna impressed yet again as left-back. Webb played for the injured Okore.
First Half: Steer, Vlaar, Clark, Bacuna, Helenius, Westwood, Delph, Webb, Bowery, Bennett, Carruthers.
Second Half: Guzan, Lowton, Baker, El Ahmadi, Luna, Sylla, Bowery [Burke], Weimann, Herd, Gardner, Carruthers.
Aston Villa do have a few injuries in Germany, Okore is out with a thigh injury. Albrighton, Tonev and Agbonlahor have also suffered knocks and weren’t risked for the friendly. Aston Villa still have one more game to play in Germany, this will be played on Sunday.
