Match preview 🏆 

Aston Villa has taken their end of season momentum into this shootout for a place in the top tier. It's a match thought to be worth around £170m to the winner and Villa are back at Wembley having missed out on payday last season against Fulham.

Boss Dean Smith saw his side edge past West Brom in the semi-finals on penalties after drawing 2-2 on aggregate. Villa finished the season in superb form. They are the side we always look for - the team gathering pace after losing only one of their last 15 games, and that was to champions Norwich. They're favourites here and for good reason. 

The last five playoff finals have all featured under 2.5 total match goals and that offers great betting value again. 

Men to watch & team news 🌟

Tammy Abraham has scored 26 goals this season, six of which have come from the penalty spot. The Chelsea loanee is a major threat once again and could well make his move permanent if Villa secure promotion. Centre back James Chester is out while Axel Tuanzebe is a doubt.

For Derby, Curtis Davies is injured and Scott Malone is suspended, meaning that Frank Lampard is likely to hand a starting berth to former Chelsea teammate Ashley Cole.
