Nottingham Forest vs Brentford Tips and Prediction
Nottingham Forest appeared to be well-positioned for a trip to the Emirates after securing a famous victory over Liverpool and keeping a clean sheet. This was especially true considering that Arsenal had recently struggled to establish their superiority and were coming off a loss to PSV Eindhoven.
However, the league leaders showed that they were superior to Nottingham Forest on this particular day as Cooper’s team was destroyed by the Emirates with to goals from Reiss Nelson twice, Gabriel Martinelli once, Thomas Partey once, and Martin Odegaard.
The Tricky Trees had begun to exhibit a more tenacious defensive streak in recent weeks, but that didn’t matter at the league’s top team’s home, and they are still at the bottom of the division after 12 games with just nine points earned.
Cooper’s team is the only one in the Premier League that hasn’t reached double digits in points so far this year, and unsurprisingly, they have the worst goal differential of -20. As of now, only one club out of six that has had a goal differential that bad after 13 games has avoided relegation.
The fact that seven of the Tricky Trees’ nine points this season have come from victories at the City Ground, where they have won their past two games without losing, plus the fact that Brentford will be without their top scorer this weekend should give them some hope.
When Brentford traveled to Aston Villa, a team that had just fired Steven Gerrard, the new interim manager bounce was already well underway. Aaron Danks had been in charge for the first of his two games before being replaced by Unai Emery.
Last weekend’s match between Thomas Frank’s team and a careless Wolverhampton Wanderers team saw two amazing goals, with Ruben Neves’ clinical finish canceling out Ben Mee’s acrobatic effort as Thomas Frank’s team looked to bounce back from that 4-0 beating.
In their first season in the Premier League, Brentford established themselves as a reliable team. Despite winning just one of their last seven games during a poor run of form, the Bees are still comfortably ranked 11th, four points clear of both the top seven and the relegation zone.
Brentford won 3-1 at the City Ground in December 2020 to advance to the Premier League, but Forest held the Bees to a 1-1 draw just a few months later. This weekend, the bottom-of-the-table team would benefit from rediscovering a winning habit at home.
The Bees have so far this season flattered to deceive on the road, and Toney’s suspension may persuade Frank to employ a more defensive setup for the trip to the City Ground.
Because of this, Forest should be fired up for the match on Saturday. Cooper’s team will be rooting for them at home, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the defense won this one.
