Nottingham Forest vs Aston Villa
Nottingham Forest is playing at home against Aston Villa in a match of round 37 of the English Championship. These two sides met in a midweek earlier in November and produced the most exciting match of Championship season so far, drawing 5-5 at Villa Park. Four wins on the spin at the home with two consecutive clean sheets has propelled Forest back into the promotion chase. On the other hand, Aston Villa is two points behind Forest in the Championship table, moved within four of the playoffs after Sunday’s local derby win over Birmingham City.
- Nottingham Forest has seen over 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 7 matches against Aston Villa in all competitions
- Nottingham Forest has won only one of their last 13 matches against Aston Villa in all competitions
The home side has boosted morale with the four-match winning streak at the City Ground, but Aston Villa is a side returning to their best and this will be no easy encounter. Anyway, we should see two sides going all out for the victory to try and force their way towards the top six. Another entertaining draw is expected today.
