Huddersfield Town vs Nottingham Forest
Date: Friday, 25 September 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: John Smith’s Stadium, Huddersfield.
Third round of the English Championship is opened this Friday with a match between Huddersfield Town and Nottingham Forest. After the match ends, at least one of these two teams won’t have zero points on their balance.
Both have started the new campaign in a terrible fashion with two straight losses, which is very strange for Nottingham who were rated highly to battle for the promotion.
The Terriers on the other hand had much harder schedule than the opposition, having faced Norwich City and Brentford, arguably two strongest teams in the league.
All in all it should be interesting to see if someone can secure first win of the season.
The odds are identical at this point both for home and away win at 2.65 rate.
Huddersfield vs Nottingham Forest Head-to-head
The last four head to head meetings between Huddersfield and Nottingham have always ended with hosts taking all three points. Last season’s result at John Smith’s Stadium was 2-1 in favour of Terriers.
When it comes to all-time stats, Huddersfield were more successful with 16 victories, while losing 12.
The average number of goals scored in all previous h2h’s is 2.65 per duel.
Huddersfield vs Nottingham Forest Prediction
Huddersfield’s poor season opening doesn’t come as a big surprise. The squad looked pretty much clueless in the first official match in League Cup against Rochdale, losing it 0-1.
Fans are still waiting for the first goal after failing to find the net against Norwich City (0-1) and Brentford FC (0-3).
Is it time for coach Carlos Corberan to try some other options upfront other than Diakhaby and Mbenza?
As for their opposition, Nottingham Forest have even worse results in the last six weeks. If we count in last two rounds of the previous season matches, this team has five straight losses across competitions.
Losses to QPR and Cardiff in the first two rounds were unexpected.
None of these two teams scored a single goal in Championship so far, so Under 2.5goals full-time seems like a reasonable bet.
We feel it’s a matter of time when Nottingham will go up in form, so away win also feels like a solid value.
Huddersfield vs Nottingham Forest Bet Tips
