Swansea – Nottm Forest Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 10:00

While the Welsh outfit have been struggling for goals of late Oliver McBurnie could be back while Forest are going to have to attack this one which could open opportunities on the break for the visitors. I would instead look at both teams to score. The prices in the match market look about right with Nottingham Forest enjoying home advantage but probably little to choose between these sides when they are both at their best.

All eyes will be on Liberty Stadium when Swansea City and Nottingham Forest face each other in the Championship derby. The Swans have been playing above expectations at the start of the new season and they head into Saturdays football match following a thrilling 1-0 win at Leeds United. The Welsh outfit aim to extend their winning run in all competitions to seven games and we are positive that they are going to prove their worth on the field.

To make things even better for the fans, the City Ground outfit clinched the FA Cup trophies in 1898 and 1959. In their first ever meeting in the local derby Forest recorded a 3-2 win over Derby County. Derby County are regarded as Forests bitterest rivals and the two local rivals contest in the East Midlands derby. Nottingham Forest won the national championship in the 1977/1978 season, with the team finishing the campaign seven points clear of second-placed Liverpool.

Swansea vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tip

Swansea are the favourites to win the fixture but the odds seem about especially considering Forest have picked up some decent results on their travels. The fixture features two prolific scorers in Borja Baston (four in three at home) and Lewis Grabban (three in three on the road) and backing both these players to score at any time looks the right call.

However, this time around Sabri Lamouchi seems to have something about him. However, Lamouchi hasnt just turned around their fortunes there, hes got them playing well on the road. Having chewed up and spat out a string of average Championship bosses, the City Ground is an unforgiving place. There was also managerial upheaval at the City Ground once again.

Swansea is undefeated in the league in all the six games and holds an average scoring of two goals per game. Nottingham Forest, on the other hand, are in the middle of the table two wins and a loss at the 10th position in the table. Topping the table at the start of the season with a dream start into the league has given flying colors for the host in the Championship.

They are unbeaten in the league and are likely not to be defeated by Forest who are still struggling with their consistency. The host has recorded three clean sheets in the league so far. Moreover, Swans have an unbeaten three games against the Reds at home matches and with that home advantage, they are sure to continue their winning trends.
