Brentford vs Nottingham Match Preview and Prediction

Brentford vs Nottingham: The Bees lost five straight Premier League games, and Nottingham Forest defeated Newcastle and Manchester United in the last two league rounds. Four subsequent matches between these squads saw both teams’ score.

Brentford fans will be excited to watch Ivan Toney play in the league for the first time this season at Gtech Community Stadium on Saturday. The Bees’ talisman returns from a long suspension to help Brentford heal.

Thomas Frank’s team is struggling following five straight Premier League losses. They’re 16th in the league, three points ahead of Luton Town in the red zone. To make matters worse, Brentford must play Tottenham, Manchester City (twice), Liverpool, West Ham, Chelsea, and Arsenal until March 9.

This is why Saturday’s match against Nottingham Forest is crucial for the Bees. Since Nottingham Forest, one point ahead in the bottom part of the standings, might be their relegation opponents, they need a win here.

After beating Newcastle and Manchester United in the league, Nottingham Forest will be confident. As crucial as this match is for Brentford, we can’t justify supporting the home win at 1.90 odds. The Reds are on fire under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

Brentford vs Nottingham: Betting Analysis

With three of their past five encounters with Nottingham Forest ending in draws, Brentford will be depending on recent history. In the rematch played in October of last year, the teams split the spoils after a 1-1 draw.

In the last four head-to-head matches, both teams performed as expected. Nuno Espirito Santo has undoubtedly improved Nottingham Forest’s performance and confidence, so we think it makes sense to back them to win at 1.83 odds.

Alternatively, given that we have witnessed goals at both ends in each of Nottingham’s previous four games, we will go with the Both Teams to Score option at 1.75 odds.

Who will win the match between Brentford and Nottingham?

Considering everything, Nottingham Forest can score goals against this Brentford team, but it might not be enough to prevent a defeat. We anticipate a close game that ends with Brentford leading 2-1 at the end of regulation.
