Forest Green vs Birmingham Prediction

Birmingham have a perfect winning record in h2h clashes over the years, and they are also part of the prestigious Championship – the second tier of English football. Whereas their counterparts for the day ply their trade in the third tier.

Moreover, Forest Green have been a total disaster this season, and are a prime contender to get relegated to the League Two at the end of the season. Meanwhile, Birmingham have a much better record in the past months – and as such a win for them at an odd of 1.90 is the apt pick here.
