Southampton vs Nottingham Forest Prediction and Match Preview
Southampton vs Nottingham Forest
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 4 January 2023
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium.
Nothing has gone right for Southampton this season, and their counterparts Nottingham have no different story either. But at least the latter could make the claim of being comparatively inexperienced in the top flight recently.
Both teams are placed in the relegation zone at the moment. It is not yet time to be worried about getting the boot – a half season is still to be played.
But the ultra-competitive nature of the Premier League suggests that these teams start are not in line to have a pretty peaceful ending to their campaigns.
Southampton are placed bottom-most in the table, and are one of the only two teams to have lost every one of their last five games in the league.
Such has been their sorry state that the only thing they have got to show for in the last three months is their win against Lincoln, in the EFL Cup. And do note that Lincoln are part of the third tier in the English football hierarchy.
Meanwhile, Nottingham are placed 18th in a table of 20, with 14 points against their name from 17 games. However, they are slightly hopeful due to their draw against Chelsea in their latest league fixture.
Moreover, teams placed just above them have tough games coming up, and this is really the opportunity they have been looking for. If they play their cards right, come next week, they can find themselves above the relegation cut-off.
As things stand, count on Nottingham to deliver a hard-fought win against a desperate Southampton side this Wednesday.
Not only have Southampton failed to keep a clean sheet in their last eight matches, but they let in two or more goals in four of their past six fixtures. To make matters worse they are utterly desperate, and have a single win at this ground this whole league season.
It appears that we are about to witness a Nottingham win this Wednesday.
