Nottingham Forest vs Bristol City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 3 October 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: City Ground.
The Reds are one of the worst teams in the league this season, and they have justified that tag with dismal performances so far. They are on a 100% losing record at the moment, and worryingly have not scored a single goal till now.
In fact, their struggles had begun even before the commencement of the new campaign. Even into the final phase of the 2019-20 season, the team had been delivering unimpressive performances.
Meanwhile, the Robins are one of the best teams in the Championship at the moment, and they have raced to the top of the table with a 100% winning record.
In fact, along with Reading, they remain the only team to have a perfect record in the competition, and they also have scored the second-most number of goals in the contest.
Considering these factors, expect a winning performance from Bristol City this Saturday.
Nottingham Forest vs Bristol City: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Dean Holden’s men had recorded six of the preceding eight overall wins.
- They have conceded a total of two goals from the former five fixtures combined.

Nottingham Forest vs Bristol City: Prediction
Sabri Lamouchi’s men lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day, against Huddersfield. In the meantime, the Robins registered a 2-0 win at home against Sheffield Wednesday.
Going on, the Reds are on a six-fixture losing run, and they also are on a winless run of ten match-ups. Do also note that they had managed to win a total of just three games from their past 19 overall fixtures.
At home, they had remained winless in seven of their previous nine appearances as well.
On the other hand, their counterparts had won six of their preceding seven overall matches, and this sole loss had come in the EFL Cup against Aston Villa – a Premier League club.
On top of that, they have a 100% winning record in the Championship this season, and are one of the toppers, while Lamouchi’s men are one of the worst teams in the contest with a 100% losing record.
And finally, Holden’s men also do have a great h2h record against this opponent in recent years.
Taking into account these observations, expect a Bristol City win this weekend.
