Nottingham Forest v Aston Villa Betting Predictions and Match Preview

Aitor Karanka has been tasked with bringing the good times back to Nottingham Forest and the former Middlesbrough manager will be hoping that his new side can reproduce the sort of form that saw them knock holders Arsenal out of the FA Cup on Sunday.

First up for the Spaniard is a Midlands derby against Aston Villa at the City Ground, with our KickOff predictive algorithm giving the visitors an 11% advantage thanks to their higher league position and a decent record of five wins from ten trips of late.

Last season’s score

If recent history is anything to go by, then this contest could easily end in a draw (27% chance), something that has been almost completely alien to the Reds in 2017/18, as five of the previous ten meetings between the two teams in all competitions have ended all-square.

In terms of potential scorelines, 1-1 (13% chance) and 0-1 (11% chance) are the only results to be afforded at least a 10% chance of happening, with 1-0 (9% chance) emerging as the home side’s most likely route to victory.

Top betting tips and predictions

When Aston Villa come to town, excitement tends to be in short supply, as evidenced by the fact that six of their most recent eight trips have served up under 2.5 goals (54% chance), so anyone expecting thrills and spills is sure to be disappointed.

Steve Bruce will bring the big guns back for this encounter, meaning that Robert Snodgrass (7% chance), fresh from three goals in two appearances of late, has to be a contender to break the deadlock, along with eight-goal Kieran Dowell (11% chance) for the hosts.
