On Saturday, September 19, the program of the second round in the English Championship will begin with the Nottingham Forest – Cardiff City duel, the forecast for which we propose below.
“Foresters” in the last championship tried to fight for an increase in class, but they did not succeed in this. Nottingham Forest started this season extremely badly . The defeat at Barnsley in the League Cup left the team behind the tournament. This was followed by a failure in the opening round of the championship. The Foresters played away against Queens Park Rangers and lost 0-2 in all respects. It should be noted that for the entire match Nottingham Forest did not strike a single shot on the opponent’s goal.
Away in the Championship, Nottingham Forest have performed poorly in recent matches, having won only one victory in the previous nine matches.
Like their current rival, Cardiff City have had a bad start this season. At first, the “bluebirds” rather unexpectedly suffered a defeat in the League Cup from Northampton (0: 3), and then lost in the opening round of the Championship. The Welsh played their first match in the current championship in their home arena against Sheffield Wednesday, they themselves did not score goals, but conceded twice.
In general, at the finish of last season, Cardiff City showed good results in the fields of rivals. In nine previous matches of the tournament, he won seven away victories.
Cardiff City have won five of their last six away games in the Championship.
Nottingham Forest have won only one of their last nine matches.
The forecast “total under 2.5” has played in seven of the last nine matches of the foresters.
Cardiff City have beaten Nottingham Forest in seven of their last nine head-to-head matches.
02/25/20 Cardiff City Nottingham Forrest 0: 1
11/30/19 Nottingham Forrest Cardiff City 0: 1
04/21/18 Cardiff City Nottingham Forrest 2: 1
11/26/17 Nottingham Forrest Cardiff City 0: 2
04/17/17 Cardiff City Nottingham Forrest ten
22.10.16 Nottingham Forrest Cardiff City 12
Both teams started the season unsuccessfully, showing themselves from the worst side. The desire to rehabilitate their mistakes and score the first points can push them towards attacking and open football that will be rich in goals. Nevertheless, the teams conceded a lot in the first matches of the season.
Our prediction – both will score for 2.00 in BC Winline
