Bristol City vs Nottingham Forest Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Nottingham Forest are one of the early season favourites for the promotion race and they have justified this position by going through a splendid set of results in pre-season. Bristol City finished last campaign in the mid-table position and not much has improved for Lee Johnson’s men in pre-season. Bristol’s only pre-season win came against Cheltenham Town. Despite having home advantage in the game, Bristol are at a disadvantage against Nottingham’s superior quality. I would go with a win for Nottingham Forest.

Lewis Grabban adds a different dimension to Nottingham’s attack. The 30-year-old has been brought in from Bournemouth for just under €7 million. He came up with 20 goals in the Championship 17-18 campaign with Aston Villa. I would back Grabban to score anytime in the match.

Nottingham Forest win – 9/5

Lewis Grabban to score anytime – 13/8

Bristol City saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Nottingham Forest saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played
