Millwall vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

Millwall is strong at home and the Forest Gaffer, Sabri Lamouchi, knows it well. Comparing their overall performance in the championship this season, Nottingham Forest is well above Millwall. The Forest has secured 32 points in 18 matches, while Millwall is still trailing behind with 26 points.

Another three points would help Millwall close in on the top 6 spots. Nottingham, already in the top 6 will be aiming for the top two spots.

Besides that, Millwall has lost only one of their 9 home matches in this championship season. Their only loss at home was against QPR when Shaun Hutchinson’s equalizer didn’t last a minute when Nahki Wells completed his brace to deny Millwall all three points.

Apart from that, Millwall has been unbeaten in the last five home fixtures. Also, their previous encounter in the campaign ended in a 1-1 draw against Birmingham on the road.

Nottingham Forest certainly has the upper hand in overall stats over Millwall. Besides that, the guest has shown a decent form away from home. They have recorded 5 wins and 1 loss in their 10 away fixtures.

Their only loss on the road was when Wigan forward Jamal Lowe’s lone goal stood in between Forest and the three points in the game.

Also, the Forest has recorded only two wins in the last five trips on the road in the campaign. However, they will be visiting on the back of a 0-1 defeat against Cardiff City on the road in their previous encounter in the contest.

Hence, based on their recent form in the campaign, Millwall has chances of registering a win. Since Nottingham Forest is in a good overall form and above the host in the league table, they cannot be written off easily.

There lies a probability for a draw too. Henceforth, it is safer to go with a double chance.

Since Millwall has scored 1.56 goals per match at home and Forest has scored 1.50 goals per match in their championship away fixtures, the probabilities seem strong.

Also, count on both teams to score over 1.5 goals in the game within ninety minutes.
