On May 20, City Ground (Nottingham) will host the match of the 37th round of the English Premier League, in which Nottingham Forest will compete with Arsenal. The battle will start at 18:30 CET.
The team returned to the Premier League after a break, which lasted during a quarter of a century – it was relegated in the 90s of the previous century and had remained in the Championship. Steve Cooper and his wards got a long-awaited breakthrough due to the play-off matches a year ago. Despite the abundance of newcomers (there appeared even a record in this regard) and quite high-status ones, the club that has been promoted to the Premier League is forced to struggle to the very end to maintain the so-called “registration”. At the same time, the team reached the semi-finals of the EFL Cup. An unsuccessful series started in February: only 3 points in 11 confrontations were taken, moreover, the team was 6 times defeated in 7 matches. Then it added in the game since the right moment, from the middle of spring. Brighton and Southampton were defeated and the battle with Chelsea resulted in a spectacular 2-2 draw – the higher mentioned results allowed to break away from the danger zone.
The club has not got rid of its main problem, which cost the 4th place a year ago. Then, taking into account the recession at the finish line, it lost the ticket to the Champions League – moreover, that happened because of the rival, Tottenham. Nowadays, it turned out to add in the game in a pretty incredible way – Zinchenko and the company have been holding the lead for the greatest part of the tournament. Everything is in the past now, and a crushing defeat made by the pursuer, Manchester City, is not the only decisive misfire – the points had been lost in draws with Liverpool, West Ham and even Southampton before that. Moreover, a latter opponent made the team recoup. Only May gave an opportunity to find its game again. “The Gunners” beat Chelsea (3-1) and Newcastle (2-0) in a pretty confident way. Then they finally lost the title, devastatingly losing to unstable Brighton – 0-3.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
“The Foresters” won the battle in the FA Cup with a 1-0 score at the beginning of the previous year. Still, Nottingham Forest was thrashed with a 5-0 result in October in London.
The bookmakers are confident in the victory of the guests from London, but the hosts will fight desperately. Thus, we bet that both opponents will score in the following match (odd: 1.66).
