Aston Villa vs Derby County (By: Luke)
Aston Villa managed to progress to the big finals only thanks to a penalties series win over West Brom on the road.
They had a player more since the 80th minute of the second clash but didn't manage to exploit that fact during the overtime. However, must be said overall, that the Villans did deserve to pass through looking like much more stable team during these two games.
Derby was almost overwritten after a home loss 0:1 to Leeds, but the side managed to impress everyone and fought back more than well in a 4:2 victory on the road.
They stood behind in the scoreline, but managed to level up just before the halftime whistle against the flow of the match and surprised them in a great manner at the start of the second with two goals within first thirteen minutes.
There are some certain stability and individual class difference with the Villans that I can not ignore here. Moreover, they seem to really know how to play against Derby winning both matches this season with a 7:0 aggregate result.
Of course, this clash will be completely different but if one of the teams is to prevail during the ninety minutes, that would be Aston Villa in my eyes. Overtime and penalties especially are more of a lottery thing for me.
