Nottingham Forest vs Aston Villa
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 13 March 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: The City Ground (Nottingham).
One of the most interesting clashes in English Championship 37th round is going to be contested between Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa.
The hosts want to remain in the race for the place in the promotion playoffs as they are only two points away from the top six. They’ve improved their form lately and home side booked eight points in the last five rounds.
Martin O’Neill’s side has been pretty productive so far, while their defence is doing a decent job.
Nottingham Forest are one of the best hosts in the Championship and they are enjoying a run of four straight home wins.
Aston Villa are two points behind their rivals and they also want to get involved in the battle for the top six. They managed to win twice in a row and the visitors managed to keep the clean sheet in the last two rounds.
Tammy Abraham and the lads are one of the most efficient sides in the competition, however their poor defending costed them of too many points.
Aston Villa has been fairly good at away grounds, but they spilled too many points in draw matches.
Nottingham Forest vs Aston Villa: Head-to-head
Aston Villa haven’t lost in the last three occasions and during that period, they managed to book two victories.
Forest managed to celebrate just once at home ground since 1998 in official matches.
Their clashes have been a joy to watch in terms of total goals scored and just two games out of the last nine remained under 2.5 margin.
The latest encounter of these two sides ended with a superb 5-5 draw.
Nottingham Forest vs Aston Villa: Prediction
Both sides will be searching for a positive result in this match which can keep them in the race for the promotion playoffs. We should expect to see a close game, but the hosts might be a bit closer to the victory and they should continue their winning streak at The City Ground.
Their head to head clashes have been traditionally very efficient and this one shouldn’t be much different. We are going to follow the history of their encounters and we are expecting to see at least three goals once again.
