📊 Form Guide

Nottingham Forest DDLLLL 📉

Nottingham Forest will be looking to improve on their last outing here following the 2-0 Championship loss in their previous game against Queens Park Rangers.

On the other side, Queens Park Rangers had 9 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. Lyndon Dykes (54') and Ilias Chair (94') scored for Queens Park Rangers.

Nottingham Forest have found it difficult to unlock defences of late. Their sum of goals equals just 4 versus opposition teams during the course of their last 6 outings. In those meetings, The Reds have also seen the tally of goals scored against them come to 11.

Heading into this contest, Nottingham Forest are without a win at home for the past 3 matches in the league.

Cardiff City WWLWLL

Since a loss in their previous game against Sheffield Wednesday in Championship competition, Cardiff City will be aiming to make amends here.

In that game, Cardiff City managed 61% possession and 7 shots on goal with 2 on target. Sheffield Wednesday had 8 shots on goal with 4 on target. Josh Windass (4') and Jordan Rhodes (44') scored for Sheffield Wednesday.

The stats don’t lie, and Cardiff City have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 9 goals in total. At the back, The Bluebirds could really do with shoring things up. That pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this match, however.

Ahead of this meeting, Cardiff City haven't been beaten by Nottingham Forest when they've played them away from home in the last 5 league games. A very good record, indeed.

🤜🤛 Head to head

Checking on their most recent head to head meetings stretching back to 22/10/2016 shows that Nottingham Forest have won 1 of these & Cardiff City 5, with the tally of drawn results being 0.

11 goals were scored between them in this period, with 3 of them for The Reds and 8 being from The Bluebirds. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 1.83.

The previous league clash between these sides was Championship match day 35 on 25/02/2020 which ended up with the score at Cardiff City 0-1 Nottingham Forest.

That day, Cardiff City had 50% possession and 18 shots at goal with 4 on target.

For their opponents, Nottingham Forest had 17 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Tiago Silva (49') scored.

The match was refereed by Stephen Martin.

ℹ️ Team News: Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi will be happy not to have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this game with a completely injury-free group available to select from.

In our view, The Reds may well use the 4-2-3-1 system for this game, handing starts to Brice Samba, Tyler Blackett, Tobias Figueiredo, Joe Worrall, Carl Jenkinson, Ryan Yates, Jack Colback, Sammy Ameobi, Luke Freeman, Joe Lolley and Lewis Grabban.

ℹ️ Team News: Cardiff City

With a fully injury-free group available to select from, Cardiff City boss Neil Harris has no fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game.

We’re of the thinking that The Bluebirds might begin the game with a 4-3-3 system, giving starts to Alex Smithies, Jordi Osei-Tutu, Sean Morrison, Curtis Nelson, Joseph Bennett, Will Vaulks, Leandro Bacuna, Lee Tomlin, Joshua Murphy, Kieffer Moore and David Hoilett.

⚡ Prediction

Our feeling is that Cardiff City have it within them to find the back of the net against this Nottingham Forest lineup, but it probably won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.

Our selection here is for both teams to score in a 2-1 advantage for Nottingham Forest at the end of this one. Hopefully this is a good one.
