Sheffield Wednesday vs Nottingham Forest Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Sheffield Wednesday vs Nottingham Forest
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 1 May 2021
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Hillsborough (Sheffield).

It’s now or never for Sheffield Wednesday and they must act soon if they are to keep the hopes alive to stay in the Championship next season. The host has lost only one of their recent three matches in the campaign and is in mixed form. They will return home after a 3-1 loss on the road to the likes of Middlesbrough last time out in their schedule.

Mid-table Nottingham Forest has nothing to play for other than pride in the upcoming fixtures. The away team has been winless for the past four clashes with three draws in it. This shows a shaky defense for the visitors in the middle. They will visit on the back of a 1-1 draw at home with Stoke City in the previous encounter in the campaign.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

In the last ten h2h meetings between the two sides, they have scored at least two goals in each of those fixtures until now.

With the trend continuing for such a long time, we can count on the teams to score at least a couple of goals in ninety minutes. Thus, the tip for over 1.5 goals will come in handy for the goals area in the encounter.

Furthermore, Sheffield Wednesday is urgent for the three points while the opponents is not likely to rush into the game. The host enjoys the ground advantage in the middle and has lost none of their last five h2h clashes with the visitor at this venue.

Besides, Nottingham Forest is in a winless run in the campaign as of now. Hence, the draw no bet over the Owls will probably be the best bet for the punters.
