Nottingham Forest vs Cardiff City
Date: Saturday, 19 September 2020
Kick-Off at 12.30 UK
Venue: The City Ground, Nottingham.
Saturday’s action in the English Championship round two is going to be opened at The City Ground where wounded Nottingham Forest will seek first seasonal points against Cardiff City.
Visitors from Wales were defeated in the first match as well, so there is no doubt we are going to have two very motivated sides.
In terms of the odds and bookmakers, hosts are warm favorites for the win at 2.45 rate, while chances for The Bluebirds to achieve the same success are at 2.90.
Nottingham Forest vs Cardiff City Head-to-head
There were 34 previous head to head encounters between these opponents and surprisingly, Cardiff City have big 19-9 lead in terms of victories.
Both were participants in the previous Championship edition – Cardiff were victorious at this stadium 1-0 FT, while Nottingham returned the favour with same result in Wales.
Four out of the last five mutual meetings ended Under 2.5 goals FT.
Nottingham Forest vs Cardiff City Prediction
At this point, with four consecutive defeats across competitions, repeating last season’s success and participating in the playoffs seems like a mission impossible for Nottingham Forest. The team scored only one goal in the last 360 minutes, which is completely unrecognizable considering their playstyle.
Fans are looking at direction of Lewis Grabban who terrorized opponents across the league. Coach Sabri Lamouchi maybe should try with Lyle Taylor in the main roster instead of Nuno Da Costa who had an awful day against QPR last weekend. Forest lost that match 2-0 FT.
Cardiff City were one of our safer picks last round at home against Sheffield Wednesday but lost that match 2-0. It was more than obvious that Bluebirds are in awful form during the League Cup action last week and 0-3 loss to Northampton.
We are expecting Nottingham to recover and finally end the bad run. Price on home win is just too good to be missed.
Nottingham Forest vs Cardiff City Bet Tips
Home win @ 2.45
Lewis Grabban to score at anytime @ 2.60.
