Nottingham Forest vs Swansea City
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 29 November 2020
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: City Ground.
The Tricky Trees are one of the weakest teams in the competition at the moment, and are placed a single spot above the relegation zone. They have had a total of three wins all through this campaign, and two of those had come against teams from the bottom-most tier of the table.
Meanwhile, the Swans have one of the best defenses in the whole league. In fact, only Middlesbrough have let in fewer goals than them.
Going on, Steve Cooper’s men are also amongst the best in the second flight of English football, and they are currently placed fourth in standings – just four points below the toppers.
Moreover, this weekend, the third-placed Bristol have a tough match-up, and this presents an opportunity for the Swans to climb into a podium position.
By the looks of things, Swansea are on course to deliver a good performance.
Nottingham Forest vs Swansea : Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 2-2 draw.

- They had scored two or more goals in the past two clashes here.
Nottingham Forest vs Swansea: Prediction
The Tricky Trees lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against Bournemouth. In the meantime, the Swans were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Sheffield Wednesday.
Going on, Hughton’s men are on a two-match losing run, and they had recorded a combined scorecard of 0-4 in the process. They were also winless in 17 of their preceding 20 overall fixtures, and they had gone on a seven-game losing run during the stretch as well.
At home, they were winless in seven of their previous nine appearances, and they had failed to keep a clean sheet in eight of their last nine fixtures as well.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 11 of their last 13 overall matches, and they had kept clean sheets in three of their past six games as well. And on the road, they have lost just thrice in their former 14 attempts.
On top of that, also note that Cooper’s men have the second-best defense in the competition, while only the three squads in the relegation zone have scored fewer goals than the Tricky Trees.
As such, expect Swansea to emerge victorious this Sunday.
