Swansea City vs Nottingham Forest
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 17 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium.
The Swans are the most impressive team in the competition at the moment, and the most consistent too. They are on a mission to get promoted to the top flight, and are placed third in the table as of now.
And it surely needs to be mentioned that they have two games in hand, while the top-most Norwich have a lead of just five points.
Steve Cooper’s men also have the best defense in the whole of the Championship. They have conceded a total of just 15 goals till now, whereas none have kept it below 20, and only six of the remaining 23 squads have kept it below 30.
Meanwhile, the Tricky Trees are going through an inconsistent run. They have managed to post some wins in recent weeks, but almost all of them had come against bottom-tier squads.
On top of that, they also have an inferior h2h record against this rival over the years. Likely, expect Swansea to deliver a winning performance this Wednesday, and that too in style.
Swansea vs Nottingham Forest: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest fixture had ended in a 5-1 win for the Swans.
- They are also on a two-game winning run, and have scored three or more goals in four of the preceding seven clashes at this venue.
- In the 21st century, the visitors have scored more than one goal just once at this stadium.
- Since 2009, the hosts have lost just once at this ground.
Swansea vs Nottingham Forest Prediction
Cooper’s men recorded a 2-0 win the last match-day at home, against Norwich. In the meantime, Chris Hughton’s men were held to a goalless draw the past game week at home, by Bournemouth.
Going on, the Swans were unbeaten in ten of their previous eleven overall matches, and the only defeat in the period had come against Manchester City. Note that they have also lost just twice at home this whole season.
In addition, they had recorded a massive 5-1 win against the Tricky Trees, just three weeks back.
Hughton’s men were also winless in 14 of their preceding 20 overall games, and in 16 of their past 20 road trips.
As such, expect Swansea to post the three points on the board this Wednesday.
