Nottingham Forest vs Swansea Prediction & Match Preview

Nottingham Forest vs Swansea
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 30th March 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: City Ground (Nottingham).

Despite their closeness in league standings, both are at extreme ends of the spectrum, as far as form is considered. This is true especially when the home form of Forest, and away form of Swansea is taken into account.

Nottingham could really make an attempt on the playoff spots available at the top of the table. They may be five spots below the last such playoff position as of now, but fact remains that the separation between these two places is just three points.

Swansea lost four of their last five games in the Championship, and they should really thank the league organizers for allotting Bolton as an opponent two weeks back. Without that, Swansea would probably have been facing the embarrassment of five losses in a row.

Nottingham Forest vs Swansea Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Three of the last five wins belong to Forest.

  • Swansea returned just three goals from their last six visits to this stadium.

Nottingham Forest vs Swansea Prediction

Forest won four of their last five home ties, whereas Swansea lost their last five away games in a row. On top of that, the team could return just two goals in total from their last five road trips. Going on, the last four h2h wins were recorded by teams with home advantage, and three of the last five wins went to Forest.

Importantly, Swansea last tasted victory at this venue thirteen years back. In addition, Forest will be extra motivated for the win due to the fact that they are just three points away from a playoff spot, and with eight match-days remaining, and with their current form, it’s certainly attainable.

Finally, on the basis of current form, especially of away ties, Swansea is easily the worst along with Hull. They lost all five of their last away league games and returned just two goals in total.

Expect the hosts to take advantage of this favorable setting, put in moves for claiming one of the play-off spots.
