Brentford vs Nottingham Forest Match preview

In their previous encounter, Brentford was on the road against Huddersfield. Both teams failed to find the back of the net in the match as it ended in a goalless draw.

In the meantime, Nottingham was also subjected to a draw in their previous clash at home against Reading. However, Forest could not keep their lead in the game which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Since both teams have lost points, we can expect a tight encounter for the three points at Griffin Park to make up for the lost points recently.

Brentford vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

Based on their recent h2h clash held here where Brentford emerged as the winner, the host does seem capable of recording yet another win against Forest at their home.

With just two losses in their recent ten fixtures within the major competitions, Brentford does seem to be in a bright form. Moreover, one of those two losses was in the FA cup where they don’t play with the regular squad.

In the meantime, Nottingham Forest is not in its worst form. However, they have marked only four wins in their prior ten fixtures across major contests. Also, they will be on an away handicap which they are not so fond of.

Evidently, the Forest has only one win in their recent five trips on the road. Brentford will aim to ponder over the opponent’s poor away form with their home ground advantage. Clearly, they are on a six-game winning streak at home in the Championship fixture.

As such, the punters can now have a clear idea of the probability of favoring the Bees to win in the clash. Also, other options are available with Brentford likely to slot in a couple of goals on the other side.

In the league, Brentford has scored 25 goals in 13 home matches so far. Also, the Bees have scored at least two goals in five out of seven h2h clashes with Forest at home. Hence, we can expect the Bees to score over 1.5 goals in the match.
