Nottingham Forest vs Cardiff City Prediction

When going through the h2h history, it might instill slight confusion about the prediction. But it is to be noted that their last h2h encounter took place in 2017 at this venue. By this one year gap, the team performances have changed a bit in this new season.

So, based on their current performances Nottingham Forest is shining better in the Championship than Cardiff City.

Currently, Nottingham Forest is at the fourth spot in the league with 32 points from 9 wins and 5 draws in 17 appearances. Trailing behind the host at the 11th position, Cardiff City has accumulated 6 wins and 7 draws in the same period.

Besides that, Forest has stayed unbeaten in the last four games in the league. Moreover, they will be coming after a 0-4 win against QPR on the road in their previous match in the contest.

Even so, Forest has been a bit gloomy at home with only 4 wins out of 7 clashes at home so far. Hence, we are forced to think of the possibility of a draw too in the game.

In addition to that, Cardiff has not been in their comfort zone after getting relegated from the Premier League. Since they have faced first-tier teams, their experience also counts in the match against Forest.

Evidently, Cardiff has not tasted success in their 9 trips on the road until now. But since they have managed 5 draws in it, it will surely not be a walk in the park for the Forest. Also, the Bluebirds will be coming off of a 1-0 win against Stoke at home in their previous encounter.

Hence, with their current performance in the league, Nottingham Forest will have more chance of registering a win. To be on the safer side, a double chance is advised to be wagered in the game.
