Nottingham Forest v Crystal Palace: Match Preview & Odds

Nottingham Forest host Crystal Palace on Saturday in a match of real importance at the bottom end of the Premier League table. Both sides are involved in a relegation battle with Nottingham Forest’s position particularly precarious.

Nottingham Forest fell into the bottom three just before the international break after a breach of the Premier League’s Profit & Sustainability Rules led to a four-point deduction. The penalty leaves Nottingham Forest on 21 points after 29 matches. On the pitch, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have taken just one point from their past four matches and have won just one of their past seven matches at home in all competitions.

The honeymoon period for new Crystal Palace manager, Oliver Glasner is well and truly over with the Eagles winning just one of their last six Premier League matches. Crystal Palace sit 14th in the league with 29 points from 28 matches.

Nottingham Forest v Crystal Palace: Head-to-Head

Crystal Palace have never beaten Nottingham Forest in the Premier League with their last win against Saturday’s host coming in a Championship fixture back in December 2011. Palace’s last trip to the City Ground ended in a 1-0 defeat whilst the two sides have drawn four of their past five meetings. The reverse fixture at Selhurst Park was played in October with the match ending in 0-0 draw

Betting Tips

With four draws in five matches, a stalemate has to be considered at the City Ground. The draw looks great value at 11/5. Both Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace are amongst the league’s lowest goalscorers with 35 and 33 goals scored respectively. We’re not optimistic about seeing too many goals on Saturday and under 2.5 match goals could be a wise bet at 7/10. A second successive goalless draw between the teams could be worth a second look with 0-0 available at 15/2 in the correct score market.
