On October 20, Nottingham Forrest and Rotherham will play head-to-head in Round 6 of the Championship, and we have prepared a forecast for this match. How will the confrontation end?
For a long time “Foresters” trampled in the lower part of the standings and could not do anything. The team managed to lose four starting matches in a row, thereby greatly complicating their life.
Of course, sooner or later a white streak should have come, and in the last meeting , Nottingham Forrest still broke through. The team scored three points in the match against Blackburn (1: 0), although this victory cannot be called easy.
Sabri Lyamushi’s wards managed to come out ahead only in the 90th minute, so the opponent didn’t have much time to gather strength and recoup. In short, the Reds have somewhat improved their standings.
The Millers are also experiencing not the most successful start to the season in their careers, but this is the Championship, and here the situation is changing very quickly. For five rounds the team scored five points, but this result clearly does not suit the management.
Rotherham lost to Norwich in the last meeting (1: 2), although they had a great opportunity to win. The hosts were leading the score already in the third minute, because Freddie Ladapo made good use of his scoring chance, but then failed to convert the penalty.
Paul Warne’s players dominated the home arena, but a red card in the 71st minute ruined all plans, after which the Canaries put the squeeze on the hosts.
In the last five personal matches, the total of 2.5 goals has been broken three times.
In the previous five rounds, Nottingham Forrest have scored just two goals.
Rotherham have not lost away in two matches.
04/06/19 Rotherham Nottingham Forrest 2: 1
09/22/18 Nottingham Forrest Rotherham ten
01/31/17 Nottingham Forrest Rotherham 20
09/14/16 Rotherham Nottingham Forrest 2: 2
For Nottingham Forrest players, the last victory could be a turning point, as the team scored the first three points, but the club is unlikely to abandon defensive tactics. Rotherham are going for the points, as the team performs well in away matches, although it will not do without difficulties.
The hosts’ attack is lame, since only two goals have been scored in five rounds, so one can hardly count on a productive meeting, especially the “millers” also act cautiously away.
Our forecast – total under 2.5 goals per odds 1.76 in bookmaker 1xBet
