Nottingham Forest vs Leeds Prediction and Match Preview
Nottingham Forest vs Leeds Predictions and Free Tips from our expert tipsters when the teams go head-to-head in English Premier League on Sunday, 5 February 2023.
Nottingham have been consistent in the league lately – to the point that their only two defeats since mid-October came against toppers Arsenal, and titans Manchester United.
Meanwhile, Leeds are struggling to find form, and particularly on the road they have been a mess. In fact, they have a single win to their name away from home through the campaign.
The latest encounter ended in a 2-0 win for Forest, and they also won two of the past three clashes. And it is important to be noted that they have an unbeaten record in the past six years.
Furthermore, at this venue the hosts have a 100% winning record in the past 12 years, barring just three games.
Nottingham are unbeaten at home almost for five months now, barring their loss against Manchester United in the EFL Cup. On the other hand, Leeds managed to win just once on the road in a league game, since May of 2022.
Moreover, hosts Forest have a compelling h2h record against this opponent – and particularly so at this venue. In fact, they won all but three of the clashes at this ground in the last 12 years.
By the looks of things, expect Nottingham to deliver a winning performance this weekend.
Forest scored two or more goals in four of the past seven overall h2h fixtures, and did so in two of their last three h2h meetings at this ground. On the other hand, Leeds let in two or more goals in four of their last six overall games, and did so in six of their previous ten road trips.
Leeds have struggled with their backline through this season, and are in no shape to take on the determined hosts.
Nottingham might have the upper hand this weekend. But do note that they have a single clean sheet to their name in the last five years in h2h clashes, and they managed to keep a single clean sheet at this venue in all competitions in the last three months.
Moreover, only once did Leeds fail to find the back of the net on the road in the past three months – and this fixture was against Newcastle – who have the best defense in the league.
Likely, chances are high for goals to come in plenty.
Nottingham have a dominant h2h record against this opponent. They registered a 2-0 win in the latest h2h encounters, and won two of the past three such clashes. Moreover, they are also unbeaten in such meetings in the past six years.
Going on, they have been unbeaten at home in all competitions for close to five months, barring their sole loss against Manchester United in the EFL Cup. At the same time, Leeds managed to win just once on the road this whole league season.
