They call it football's most richest game. They say it's worth in excess of £150m to the club that wins it. But when the players of Aston Villa and Derby County walk on to the Wembley turf for the 2019 EFL Championship play-off final today, that will be the furthest thing from their minds. It's all about that place in the Premier League and only one team can grab it. Find out who with an Aston Villa vs Derby live stream – no matter where in the world you are.
The two sides have had very different EFL Championship seasons at this point, but equally tense semi-finals to overcome. Up until February, it looked like Aston Villa were destined for a mid-table finish. But then a 4-0 defeat of Derby themselves sparked a 10-game winning streak for Dean Smith's men. Tammy Abraham's 25 league goals and Jack Grealish's youthful determination were big factors in this and Villa will be marginal favourites to head back to the big time.
The drama of their penalty shoot-out win against neighbours West Brom was matched by Derby County's remarkable comeback semi-final defeat of old enemy Leeds United. Managed by the legendary Frank Lampard, Derby loitered around the play-off places all season and a strong finish secured sixth place in the Championship. Loanees Harry Wilson, Mason Mount and Mason Bennett will all be important players today, led by stalwart centre-back and club captain Richard Keough who has his own play-off final demons to exorcise.
To see who will join the likes of Man City, Liverpool, Manchester United and the rest in the Premier League next season, you're in exactly the right place to see how to get an Aston Villa vs Derby live stream to watch all the action from Wembley unfold.
