Betting tips: Nottingham Forest x Liverpool

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

Prediction 1: Nottingham Forest x Liverpool / Liverpool to win

Even if Liverpool’s injury woes are worsening by the week, the Reds have a history of returning from challenging situations, and their youthful stars have been intimidating teams.

So, Klopp’s squad may finally break their City Ground curse; they won’t be able to stop Santos’ squad, but they should be able to take advantage of their hosts’ persistent defensive weaknesses thanks to the return of a few key players.

Prediction 2: Nottingham Forest x Liverpool / Liverpool to win to nil

In their first eight Premier League games, Liverpool kept only two clean sheets. However, they have been a little more solid defensively during the last week, becoming the first English club to stop City from scoring and then shutting out West Ham.

In their previous four matches, Forest scored only once, indicating a severe problem with their offense. So far this season, the hosts have gone winless in seven of their eleven games, with five of those games ending in a scoreless draw. Their overall goal total in the Premier League is seven.

A win by the visitors by a score of nil provides a favorable opportunity to maximize the value of a wager on the Reds, securing the maximum number of points.

Prediction 3: Nottingham Forest x Liverpool / Under 2.5 goals

While Liverpool scored nine goals against Bournemouth earlier in the season and seven goals against Rangers in the Champions League, such offensive exploits were far from typical this season.

Jurgen Klopp’s squad has scored 22 goals in the league, which equates to 13 goals in nine games (not including the victory against the Cherries). Although Forest have occasionally let in many goals—their worst being a 6-0 thrashing at the Etihad Stadium—they have only let in two goals in their last two games.

Even though Liverpool should win easily, the margin of victory may be manageable. Thus, a 2-0 away victory might be riveting.
