Burton Albion vs Nottingham Forest Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

The only quarter-final fixture to involve two lower league teams sees Burton Albion and Nottingham Forest go up against each other at the Pirelli Stadium, where Forest have been unable to win in two competitive visits. Forest are aiming for a play-off position in the Championship while Burton Albion’s relegation from the second division has not gone well with the team struggling near the relegation zone. Forest were able to overcome stronger teams like Newcastle and Stoke to reach the stage, but this will be their first away League Cup tie. I would go with a win for Burton or a draw due to home advantage and Forest having more Championship ambitions.

The 1-1 draw with Bury in the first round of the competition is the only League Cup game in the last 11 for Nottingham Forest to end up producing less than 2.5 goals. Nigel Clough’s Burton are not defensively strong and I would opt for an entertaining game with over 2.5 goals.

Burton Albion win or draw – 7/10
