  • The Magpies finished in 11th last season with 13 wins in 38 games 
  • Newcastle were 14-points clear of Burnley in 18th when the season ended
  • Nottingham Forest finished in fourth in the Championship last season with 23 wins in 46 games
  • Forest claimed promotion to the Premier League via the playoffs

Head to Head

Forest have won the last two matches in a row between the sides, although the most recent of these games cam in 2018 in the EFL Cup. 

Newcastle Form 

Newcastle come into this one with three wins in five pre-season games. The Magpies have looked good as they look to build towards the new season. The start of the 2021/22 season was one they will want to put behind them, with the second-half of their campaign seeing the side picking up a number of impressive wins to see them secure safety in the league.

As mentioned, Newcastle will want to build on a strong showing in the second-half of the Premier League last year. With the mega-money backing behind them now, they will want to edge closer to the traditional top-six in the league, with the Magpies desperate to break their stranglehold on the league. 

Nottingham Forest Form 

Forest are looking to start the new season with a big victory, although they will have to be at their very best if they are to beat a Newcastle side that will be right up for this game. The elation of their playoff win will have already subsided as the nerves for the new season settle in. Despite the fact the Forest were one of the best sides in the Championship last season, it means nothing this year.

Now, Forest have to start all over again as they look to pick up enough points to ensure they will still be in England's top league next year. While a defeat in their season opener would not be terminal to their season, starting the campaign off with a win would be the perfect way to start the year.

What time does Newcastle vs Nottingham Forest start?

The game will start at 00:00 AEST on Sunday, August 7. 



The Magpies are our pick to win this one as they look to build towards a top-half finish. Forest will fight hard in the game, but we have been impressed by the way Newcastle have been building in recent months, and we believe they will be too much for Forest.
