Aston Villa vs Nottingham Forest: Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips

Aston Villa vs Nottingham Forest
England – League Championship
Date: Sunday, 11 September 2016,
Kick-Off: 13:15 UK
Venue: Villa Park, Birmingham.

Aston Villa haven’t had the best of the starts to their life in Championship despite investing heavily on squad building this summer. With one win from their five matches they are standing at 16th position in the table as Nottingham Forest visit them for the match day six fixture on Sunday afternoon. The Villains are definitely aiming to earn promotion back to the Premier League this season. However, their attitude on the pitch must improve. Roberto Matteo is a good enough coach to get the job done, so far his players have been disappointing.

Nottingham Forest have quietly earned 9 points from their first five matches of the season, with the help of three wins at home. They do not have the financial backing like Aston Villa. And on top of that they start player Oliver Burke has moved on this summer to join Bundesliga side RB Leipzig. Their new head-coach Philippe Montanier has plenty of experience, but he need some time to adjust to the unpredictable nature of Championship football.

Aston Villa vs Nottingham Forest: Prediction

These two sides haven’t met in a competitive match in around two decades and the head-to-head stats can be overlooked as for now. On the basis of each team’s performances in the five matches played in the league so far, Aston Villa will go in here as strong favourites. This is consolidated by the poor away form of Nottingham which carry over from last season. They lost in each of the two away matches this season and won only twice in the previous 9 matches on the road.
