Leicester vs Nottingham Forest Predictions & Betting Tips (Premier League)

 by Daniel Ngulu

The two bottom placed sides in the Premier League are set to face off; Leicester City will be at home to Nottingham Forest when the league enters Match Day 8. Leicester City, winless so far, are bottom of the standings with just a point from seven matches while Nottingham are 19th on four points. The hosts will be hoping to rise from their 6-2 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur in the last game while Nottingham look to recover from a 3-2 fall at home to Fulham. A win for Nottingham could see them rise from the relegation zone while a Leicester win would definitely see them leave the bottom spot but not the drop zone.

Form Analysis

Leicester City are the only sides with no win so far and they’ll be desperate to end this. They have quality in their forward line but their main issues are in defence. They have some consistency in scoring but have been conceding a lot. No team has conceded more goals than Leicester so far but they’ve scored more than at least 11 sides above them. Nottingham Forest have the same issues in defence, conceding 17 goals in their opening seven matches. They come into this game with four straight losses and desperate for a win that would lift them off the red zone.

Squad analysis

Leicester City’s troubles, as already stated, emanate from their defending. Goalkeeper Daniel Ward has struggled to fit into club legend Kasper Schmeichel’s shoes and the departure of Wesley Fofana has left them further exposed. Wout Faes couldn’t do much on his debut as they were thrashed 6-2 by Tottenham Hotspur. The good news will be that Wilfred Ndidi didn’t take part in the international break and should be fit for this game, while they will also hope the rumors linking James Maddison with Tottenham Hotspur don’t affect their best player so far. Nottingham Forest will still be without Omar Richards, with the defender said to be weeks away from his debut. Meanwhile, there are serious doubts over Morgan Gibbs-White and Scott McKenna for this game after the duo withdrew from international duty.

Our Leicester vs Nottingham Forest prediction

These two sides must have welcomed the international break, and will both want to make this chance count as action returns. Leicester City are winless in the league so far, and their transfer activity has been faulted for the slump they are in. Ironically, Nottingham Forest were the busiest in the transfers but they are also struggling. Leicester City have been good in attack but poor defensively and that has been their major undoing, which Nottingham will want to make use of. The visitors are also poor defensively though, and here we will back a two-way bet, for either side to win.
