The amazing type of Bristol City is proving quite hard to cope up with for both of these teams. They sit just below Bristol in league standings, who occupy the final playoff spot as of this moment. Only a dozen or so rounds remain in the contest, and it is time the squads change into racing equipment.
The series of draws these groups have been going through, and also how both are almost similarly powerful, at least on paper, will figure in the results of this match. Derby has the most to create from this fixture, considering their two-point shortage with the post-season mix. But they’re disabled with the off status, which should bring parity with the hosts.
Nottingham Forest vs Derby Head-to-head
- The previous two games ended in draws. And importantly, goalless draws.
- The teams on the street failed to score in six of the last seven encounters.
- Ten of the past fourteen games had under 2.5 goals.
- The previous two experiences at this place and three of the past four were stalemates.
Nottingham Forest vs Derby Prediction
Both these teams won’t want to eliminate this match and provide the other a enormous advantage in their race into the last playoff spot in contention. In that sense, this fixture is sorts of a digital closing and will be approached with such an attitude. Mistakes will be avoided, and instead of actively searching for goals, the squads will be delighted to pounce on openings offered by their counterparts.
This approach is further justified by the fact that nearly all their recent encounters have taken a similar personality. Both of the pairings in 2018 led to goalless draws. And so have three of the last four h2h ties. That roughly equates to, only one authoritative result in the previous couple of decades.
Additionally, Nottingham has been winless against this competition since 2015, but that’s negated by the fact that the teams on the street haven’t found the back of the net in six of their last seven encounters. Bear in mind that Derby is on the road this Monday.
And lastly, also take into consideration that both teams have been having problems before the goal in their last few match-days. Either failed to score in their just-concluded fixtures.
All these observations lead us into the top pick of the day — the first half to finish without goals.
