The Aston Villa still hopeful to maintain the category after defeating Crystal Palace 2-0 thanks to two goals from Trezeguet.
The ‘villains’ cling to salvation after a placid match in which everything was put to them face in the added time of the first part, when Trezeguet transformed a penalty.
The Egyptian increased his scoring score in the second half and sentenced a match vitally important for those of Pepe Reina, who also kept the goal to zero.
The Palace has already saved several days and is paying with five consecutive defeats.
Villa is not served by this victory to get out of the descent, but it drives a little after his last Premier win was on January 28.
Those of Birmingham are four points from Watford, which marks salvation, and they will continue to need almost a miracle to maintain the category with three days to play.
