Leeds United earned their first league win of the season at the expense of Sheffield Wednesday. The second half goals from Antonsson and Chris Wood was the difference at Sheffield. The hosts were the better side by far and had clear cut chances, but Leeds strike lucky to earn a morale boosting victory. However, a similar defensive display will cost them dearly against Forest, who have already scored 8 times in their two home games this season.

Nottingham Forest vs Leeds United: Head-to-Head

Nottingham Forest are unbeaten in the last seven matches against Leeds United with 4 wins and three draws. However, three from the last four meetings between the two sides were draws.

Leeds are slightly ahead in the overall head-to-head stats from last 64 matches with 24 wins against 19 wins by Forest, while 21 matches end in stalemates.

The last two home matches of Nottingham Forest against Leeds end in a 1-1 draw.

Nottingham Forest vs Leeds United: Prediction

Nottingham Forest have lost in both of their away matches this season and failed to score in each. But they had won in both of their home game by the same 4-3 margin. They have a strong head-to-head record against Leeds in recent seasons and could be considered favorites to extend their unbeaten streak to eight matches.

Gary Monk’s side earned their first win of the season defeating Sheffield Wednesday away from home last week. This was also their first win in seven league games. They are huge underdogs against a team that they haven’t defeated in four seasons, but the match could open up if the scores stay level at half-time.

Nottingham Forest failed to keep a clean sheet in six competitive matches they played this season and already shipped in 6 goals from their first two home matches. There is a good chance that both team will score at least once.
