Aston Villa vs Nottingham Forest Tips


Aston Villa were able to get back to winning ways following their 2-1 loss to Manchester United by edging past Fulham at Craven Cottage.

  • Nottingham Forest Form 

Nottingham Forest secured a stunning 2-0 win over West Ham last week as they notched a vital win in the league. 

  • Villa have won nine times at home this season (D1, L2)
  • Villa have seen BTTS in seven of their last 10 
  • Forest have lost seven of their 12 matches on the road (W2, D3)
  • The away side have seen BTTS in eight of their last 10 

Head To Head


Villa have won eight of their 20 meetings with Forest. Meanwhile, Forest have ground out four wins, with the other eight ending in draws. 

Aston Villa Form 


Aston Villa may currently sit in fourth on the ladder in the Premier League, but their form is not akin to a side that could take a coveted Champions League spot this season.

Their last five matches have ended in two wins, two defeats and a draw with struggling Everton. This made their 2-1 win over Fulham even more important, with Villa in danger of letting Tottenham and Manchester United leapfrog them on the ladder if they continue to struggle. 

With nine wins in 12 home games and 28 points picked up, Villa have the fourth best record in the league on their own turf, and they will be very tough to beat. 

Nottingham Forest Form 


Nottingham Forest secured a crucial win over West Ham at the weekend as they moved onto 24 points, four clear of Luton in 18th. 

This victory was their first since a stunning 2-1 win over Manchester United at the end of 2023. Between these two wins, Forest have lost to Brentford, Arsenal and Newcastle, while they took a point from Bournemouth. 

While Forest will hope to build on their 2-0 win over West Ham last week, their away record speaks for itself. Two wins in 12 attempts have come alongside three draws and seven defeats, and the travelling side will likely fall to another defeat in this one. 

Verdict

I am backing both sides to score in this match as Villa make it two wins in as many league games.
