Bristol City hosts Nottingham Forest in what looks like a promising Saturday encounter. Both teams are known this season for their scoring games and it will be interesting to see whether they continue the tendency or not.
Bristol are currently 3rd in the table chasing the direct promotion places. They are 4 points behind Cardiff and 8 behind leaders Wolves. The team got a victory last round but it wasn’t with ease. They won against another contestant for the top places Sheffield United. United were unlucky enough to hit 4 times the woodwork and then got a red card. Bristol took advantage and won the game with a late goal. This was their third victory in a row.
Nottingham are currently far from the drop zone contrary to last year. The team is comfortable in the top half of the table and with some luck could even look towards top 6. They still haven’t got a draw this season. Their main problem looks to be the performances away from The City Ground. They lost 3 games in a row and going back to their last 7 they have lost 6 and won 1. The team concedes too easily when put under heavy pressure away from home. They have conceded 19 goals in their last 7 games in all competitions.
Both teams are capable of scoring. They are holding joint second place in terms of over 2.5 games this season. Considering Nottingham have seen on average 3.86 goals per game in their last 7 games and Bristol are not goal shy themselves we can expect another high scoring game.
Bet : Over 2.5 Goals
