Despite a scoreless draw between Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad and their Championship opponents at Ashton Gate on January 26, the two teams have a history of success in the rematch.

Betting tips: Nottingham Forest x Bristol City

Check out our predictions of the day for Nottingham Forest vs. Bristol City

Prediction 1: Nottingham Forest x Bristol City / Nottingham Forest to win

The offensive performance at Ashton Gate was far from impressive, and injuries to Bournemouth hero Hudson-Odoi constitute a significant setback for Forest, who may not be as effective in the last third as they were in the early days of Santo’s rule.

However, Forest might pull off a similar victory versus Bristol City, a team that flattered to deceive on the road and was lucky to only lose by one against Leeds. They would advance to a glamorous fifth-round matchup with Manchester United if they do.

Prediction 2: Nottingham Forest x Bristol City  /  Bristol City over 0.5 goal

Nottingham Forest is the favourite for the subsequent encounter. Playing in the Premier League has a better composition than the opponent. For the home crowd to fully grasp the situation, the squad must up their offensive game compared to the first encounter. With counterattacks being so typical in this scenario, Bristol City should have their chances. We should not be shocked if the away team scores in this case.

Prediction 3: Nottingham Forest x Bristol City / Over 2.5 goals

Despite the scoreless draw in their last meeting, Wednesday night’s match between Nottingham Forest and Bristol City at the City Ground should see a score. Recent Forest games have featured back-and-forth scoring, while The Robins will see Sunday as a golden opportunity to pull off an upset. It’s unusual for two teams to go into a match without scoring a goal, so we’re going with a Forest victory over Bristol City, but we also think both sides will score.
