Nottingham Forest seeks survival

Nottingham Forest goes against Leeds United with hopes of continuing their survival in the league by improving their spots in the contest. These two teams are coming into this game aiming to avoid relegation, especially Leeds, who are at the drop zone. Leeds are currently at the 18th of the league table with 26 points across their names. A win in this match could make them move up to the 13th of the standings. The Forest on the other hand is at the 16th of the league table with 27 points. If they managed to win in this match, they could go up to the 12th of the standings. This meeting will be on April 5, 2023, at 2:45 AM (GMT+8), as the Leeds play as hosts.

Prior to this match, these two teams have shared 102 matches already, where the visitors has a narrow advantage. The visitors have won 36 games from those 102 matches, while the hosts recorded 31 victories. Additionally, on their last match, it was also the visitors who took the victory, and are now aiming for the same results in this match. The hosts on the other hand failed to score a win against the visitors in their last three home matches. Moreover, in their last 10 midweek matches in the league, they remain to be winless, while conceding 32 goals. As they come into this match, they seek to put a stop in their unfortunate record.

Due to the poor start of their campaign, the Forest are currently sitting at the 16th of the league table with just 27 points. They are lucky enough that they were able to improve their games, which is why they are still above the relegation zone. This season, a significant growth in their campaign is seen on the side of the Forest. Due to these improvements, it is expected that this squad will survive an early elimination in the league. Coming into this match, the Forest are from a 1-1 draw against the Wolves. For this game, they are hopeful to take it up a notch in this match. The performance of Brennan Johnson is one of the reasons why they have improved so much. With this, he is expected to lead in this match for the Forest.

However, injuries continue to hurt the Forest as they have a long injury list coming into this game. Chris Wood, Willy Boly, Dean Henderson, Scott McKenna, Serge Aurier, Gustavo Scarpa, Giulian Biancone, Omar Richards, and Ryan Yates are all out.

Leeds on the other hand are at the 17th in the league table with just 26 points across their names. This is not surprising though as they have struggled so far this season. In fact, coming into this match, they are from a 4-1 devastating loss to Arsenal. With that, they are hoping to bounce back with a win in this game, and to finally escape the drop zone. It is what they must do though because if they continue to lose, they can already bid goodbye to their chances for the next round. They are not at their best this season, and are now in desperate need of recovery to qualify for the next round. Additionally, they need to address their inconsistencies, as it may be their key to get the wins they need.

Just like the Forest, the Leeds also have a list of absentees for this game. They will be without Maximilian Wober, Stuart Dallas, Adam Forshaw, Tyler Adams, and Wily Gnonto due to injuries.

Prediction:

Nottingham Forest (2.0)
Odds: -0.95
