Crystal Palace 2-1

Nottingham Forest vs Crystal Palace Predictions

  • Forest have conceded a goal every 42 minutes on average this season
  • The hosts have conceded 2.14 goals per game in the league this term
  • Both teams have scored in four of Forest’s last five home league games
  • Palace are unbeaten across their last eight clashes with promoted sides

Palace on a roll

They may have exited the Carabao Cup in midweek, but Crystal Palace have won three of their last four Premier League games heading to the City Ground this weekend. The Eagles have jumped into the top half as a result and they’re out to build on that this weekend.

Nottingham Forest had a morale-boosting win over Tottenham in the cup, but they remain bottom of the Premier League table. Forest are hoping to boost their survival hopes ahead of the World Cup break, but defensive issues could cost them in this one.

Forest still too open

Forest have boosted their form with some good results of late, but defending remains a problem for them. They signed highly-rated goalkeeper Dean Henderson in the summer, but the defence in front of him has left him too exposed.

Henderson has conceded more goals than any other goalkeeper in the Premier League this season, letting in 30 goals. He’s averaging a goal conceded every 42 minutes in the competition this term, something Palace can exploit this weekend.

Back goals at the City Ground

Four of Forest’s last five at home have seen both teams score, while Palace have conceded 1.5 goals per away game so far. The visitors’ good form has seen them score in three of their last four games, but they have kept only two clean sheets on their travels.

Palace are fresh from a 2-1 win at West Ham and they can exploit a Forest defence who have conceded in 79% of their games this season. With neither side impressing at the back, both teams to score looks like the best bet in this one.

Crystal Palace are unbeaten in their last eight Premier League games against promoted sides, winning four of those. The Eagles are good value for a fourth win in five this weekend and they’ve won five of their eight clashes with sides in the bottom half, so back them for a 2-1 victory.
