Nottingham Forest vs Brighton preview
Despite Brighton’s rise up in the Premier League of late, they don’t have a very good record against Forest.
Their two fixtures last season saw them see out a 0-0 draw in October 2022 and a 3-1 Forest victory in April of this year.
The last game they played in the Championship, in March 2017, also ended in favour of Forest who played at home, ending in a 3-0 win.
But Brighton can turn that around this time out as they have gone on a surprise winless streak, but four of the five meetings has ended in a scoring draw.
Even against Liverpool, Fulham, Everton and Sheffield United, all of which sandwiching two 2-0 victories against Ajax in the Europa League.
They’ll be coming here in eighth position and though they could be higher with surprise draws against Sheffield United and Fulham for instance, they have a golden opportunity to get their first win against Forest since 2016.
Nottingham Forest vs Brighton betting tips
BTTS, Brighton to win, over 3.5 goals – 5/1
Brighton’s recent poorer record against Forest only really looks worse than it actually is as it spans five years with just three games.
Nottingham Forest have drawn twice, won one and lost another two in their last five Premier League fixtures.
Brighton will likely be back to their usual selves this time around, with plenty of goals expected in every game they now play.
They’ve scored 25 so far this season but conceded 21, which tracks from last season’s form, but they need to start defending more prominently again.
Last season they scored 72 and conceded 53 in their 38 Premier League games and it seems they could be replicating that again this season with a plethora of goal draws and big scorelines when they do win.
There score has been 3-1 to either side in four games already this season in the Premier League alone, along with two 4-1 victories, which suggests there should be a few against Forest who have conceded 18 so far.
