Neal Maupay scored the opening goal of the match in the 23rd minute, sending a well-timed right-foot volley into the roof of the net.
Kodjia restored parity for Villa in the 39th minute after he turned Ezri Konsa on the edge of the box, darted into the penalty area, and drilled a right-foot shot beyond Bentley.
Maupay gave the visitors the lead again in the 82nd with an acrobatic finish from close range. However, he was fortunate to escape punishment for a first-half stamp on Villa midfielder John McGinn.
Villa enjoyed 57% of possession, and registered 17 shots of which they managed to keep seven on target, according to BBC Sport.
