Nottingham Forest vs Norwich City
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 20th October 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The City Ground (Nottingham).

Two teams separated just by single point take on each other in a battle for top 6. Nottingham Forest are the hosts and have the point advantage but Norwich City are not going to give up easily.

Nottingham are playing well of late. The team scores decent amount of goals and looks to mount a challenge for the playoffs. Forest has just a single defeat since the start of the season and their fans are getting hopeful that this may be their season for the dream Premier League return.

Nottingham produced a stunner last game. They visited Riverside for a tough challenge provided by Middlesbrough. After a goalless first half the visitors eventually took the lead as Lolley scored minutes after the break. Lewis Grabban assisted by Lolley himself grabbed a second goal rounding off the victory.

Norwich are looking better than last year. Farke’s boys are just 1 point away from the playoffs and may get there with a bit more consistency. They are without a victory in their last 2 games which sent them out of the playoffs for now. The team does not concede too many goals and often their games with a few exceptions get below the 2.5 goal line.

Before the break the Canaries lost at home to Stoke. It was a bit of a surprise as the Potters are far from their best and Norwich could have produced much better performance. The home side was the active throughout the game, controlling the tempo and trying for goal. Still they had just few opportunities at the goal which they could not use to score a goal.
