Bristol City vs Nottingham: Match Preview and Prediction
Bristol City vs Nottingham: Bristol City beat West Ham United in the FA Cup third round. In the replay, Nottingham Forest needed an extra-time goal to beat League One opponents Blackpool. Three of Nottingham Forest’s last six games in all competitions have seen goals.
Bristol City will play Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup’s fourth round on Friday night, looking to defeat another Premier League outfit. Ten days ago at Ashton Gate, they were successful in the replay against West Ham, winning 1-0 thanks to an early goal by Tommy Conway.
Bristol City had another good showing in the previous round of the Championship, drawing 1-1 at Ashton Gate on Saturday against playoff-hopeful Watford. No side under Liam Manning has scored three or more goals in their past six games across all competitions.
Bristol City looked dangerous in the final portion of the Watford draw last Saturday. They should have plenty of space to score in the final third against Nottingham Forest, who have been playing adventurously since Nuno Espirito Santo replaced Steve Cooper as head coach.
Last Saturday, Nottingham Forest fell 2-3 against Brentford, ending their four-game winning streak in all competitions. Over 2.5 Goals FT and Both Teams To Score have been active in their last six games across all competitions, including their two FA Cup encounters against League One outfit Blackpool.
Bristol City vs Nottingham: Betting Analysis
Last season, Nottingham Forest defeated Bristol City twice in the 2021–2022 Championship. However, Nottingham Forest has only won five of its twenty-two visits to Ashton Gate. Only two of these rivals’ last nine matchups had three or more goals.
Nottingham Forest, a Premier League team, has to be considered the favorite, according to the bookies here. But given that Bristol City has been resilient in their two FA Cup matches against West Ham, we scarcely see any reason to support them at the 2.05 odds.
In the league game against Watford last Saturday, Bristol City also looked fantastic. At odds of 1.72, we will choose the home win or draw double chance option.
The Both Teams to Score option at 1.90 odds is great value. Nottingham Forest and League One side Blackpool drew 2-2 in the FA Cup’s previous round. In all competitions, the last six Reds games have had over 2.5 goals for both teams to score.
Who will win the match between Bristol City and Nottingham?
In our opinion, Bristol City will have a good chance of scoring goals against Nottingham Forest, who we believe could have the upper hand. As a result, we anticipate a closely contested match that ends with Nottingham Forest winning after 90 minutes.
