Rafa Benitez’s men were beaten by a loan goal at St. James’ Park on Monday, which have jeopardized their lead in the table. Looven’s second half goal in the 53rd minute was enough to put Newcastle United down. The defeat was Newcastle’s 6th championship defeat this season and their 7th in all competitions.

On the contrary, Nottingham Forest have been poor this season, managing 26 points from 23 games. They are currently in the 17th position and are 6 points above the relegation zone. They are without a win on their last 4 games, they have lost 3 games and drawn once. They will come in from a 2-1 defeat away at Huddersfield on Boxing Day and will hope to get back on the right path soon.

Newcastle United vs Nottingham Forest: Prediction

Newcastle United are strong favorites in this game, as they are in a much better form compared to their visitors. They will be aiming to revenge their defeat to Nottingham Forest in the reverse of this game.

We don’t see Nottingham winning Newcastle at St. James’ Park as they have won just twice on the road this championship season. Also they have conceded at least 2 goals in 4 of their last 5 away games and we thinks that may be the case here too.
