Our Prediction:

Swansea will win

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

That has us backing Forest to continue their three-game unbeaten run against Swansea as were backing the visitors on the Double Chance market. The Swans have only controlled one home game this season a 3-0 win over a poor Birmingham team. Both Hull and Preston gave the Swans problems going forward, while Forest have the defensive rigidity on the road to pull of a result.

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.

Scores Vs Opponents

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.

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.

They have become the shock frontrunners for promotion after their 1-0 win at Leeds, which capped off a brilliant start. With a six game-winning run behind them, the Swans are a serious threat to any side in the division. The Welsh side went from losing their two best players and manager this summer to first place early on, an achievement which has to be applauded.

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.

In their last meeting in Wales the two teams played out a goalless draw. A close encounter is on the cards at Liberty Stadium and, taking everything into account, both teams would be happy with one point from the match. The Reds, on the other hand, sit in the middle of the Championship table ahead of the trip to Wales and they are undefeated in previous five league fixtures.

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.

This is set to be a tricky clash for the hosts, as Nottingham Forest have been flying under the radar so far this term. League leaders Swansea will be aiming to keep their form rolling this weekend, as they host Nottingham Forest. Could they use that to their advantage in order to grab a result at the Liberty this weekend?

From the opposition

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.
