Over 3.5 Match Goals

Reason for tip

This could have been a really tight game had the relegation issues not been solved, but with neither defence particularly strong, there is a good chance there could be a few goals

Draw 2-2

Reason for tip

Neither of these defences are easy to trust and although this looks set to be an open game, the teams may not be separated, so a 2-2 draw appeals

Burnley vs Nottingham Forest Predictions

  • Nottingham Forest have not kept a clean sheet in their last 13 away league games
  • Burnley have won just two home league matches this season
  • Burnley have conceded at least twice in 12 of their 17 home league games

Clarets’ season has been a disaster

This clash had the potential to be a winner-takes-all battle on the final day to see who stayed in the Premier League, but Burnley’s relegation has been confirmed and it would take two freak results to see Forest join them as they enjoy a healthy goal-difference advantage over seemingly doomed Luton.

An immediate return to the second tier for the Clarets can only be seen as a huge disappointment as there was a real feeling at the start of the season that they would not be in a scrap after their attractive football helped them storm to the Championship title.

However, they never recovered from losing their first seven matches at Turf Moor and despite a brief rally a few weeks ago, defeats to Newcastle and Tottenham have sealed their fate.

Their only home clean sheet came against the only team beneath them in the table, Sheffield United, and with just two home victories this season, it would not be a surprise if Forest were positive as they look to finish the season on a high.

Forest still difficult to trust

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have limped over the line and benefitted from all three promoted teams being poorer than them this season.

The Tricky Trees have won just two of their last 12 matches and their 3-1 win at Sheffield United two weeks ago was their first away win since Boxing Day.

They have conceded at least twice in seven of their last 13 aways and should find they are up against a team determined to put up a show, so there is a strong chance there will be goals so it is worth chancing there will be at least four.

It is difficult to place faith in either team to claim a final set of three points and they could be tough to separate them, so correct-score punters may want to take a chance on a 2-2 draw.

Hudson-Odoi is finding his form

Those looking for a player to find the net are pointed towards Forest’s Callum Hudson-Odoi, who is finishing the campaign in strong style.

He scored twice in their victory at Bramall Lane and followed that with another in their 3-2 defeat to his former club Chelsea on Saturday.

The wideman has had a shot on target in each of his last eight outings and could be on the mark at Turf Moor.
