          Nottingham Forest vs Newcastle United: Betting Tips, Match Prediction & Preview

          Nottingham Forest welcome Newcastle United to the City Ground this Saturday for the late kickoff in the Premier League. Newcastle will be looking for a win to get back into the conversation for European football whereas Nottingham Forest need to put as many points between them and the relegation zone.

          These odds are correct at the time of publication and are subject to change.

          This Saturday sees a big clash where both teams are desperate for all three points. Nottingham Forest are hovering dangerously close to the relegation zone and Newcastle have found themselves slipping away from European football for next season.

          Nottingham Forest currently sit 16th in the Premier League after 23 games. Forest have five wins, six draws and 12 losses, leaving them on 21 points, just two points above the relegation zone.

          Forest have been poor in front of goal so far this season. In 23 games, Forest have scored only 27 goals, giving them an average of 1.23 goals a game. This form is also carried over to the defence, as Forest have conceded 41 goals this season and have kept just three clean sheets.

          Newcastle, on the other hand, currently sit ninth in the Premier League. In 23 games, The Magpies have ten wins, three draws and ten losses which leaves them on 33 points, already 13 points from Champions League football.

          The Magpies have been on fire in front of goal so far this season. In 23 games, Newcastle have scored 48 goals which gives them an average of 2.09 goals a game. Newcastle have faltered a little bit defensively, conceding 37 goals but keeping seven clean sheets.

          Nottingham Forest and Newcastle have met 115 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming all the way back in 1898. Newcastle have the better record in the fixture with 53 wins in comparison to Forest’s 35 wins, the other 27 games ending in a draw.

          The last five games in the fixture have seen three wins for Forest and two wins for Newcastle. Only one of these games, however, has seen only one team on the scoresheet, that being the 2 - 0 win for Newcastle in 2022.

          The Third Round Replays of the FA Cup saw Nottingham Forest take on League One Blackpool.

          Justin Kluivert opened the scoring for Bournemouth after just five minutes, but Callum Hudson-Odoi equalised for Forest before the halftime whistle. Despite a red card to Bournemouth’s Philip Billing, Nottingham Forest couldn’t find another goal and had to settle for the 1 - 1 draw.

          The Fourth Round of the FA Cup saw an all-Premier League clash between Newcastle and Fulham. Sean Longstaff gave The Magpies the 1 - 0 lead at halftime and Dan Burn secured the 2 - 0 win in the second half.

          The last time out for Newcastle was an eight-goal thriller against Luton Town. A brace from Longstaff and goals from Gabriel Osho and Ross Barkley made it 2 - 2 at halftime. A penalty from Carlton Morris and a goal from Elijah Adebayo then gave Luton the 4 - 2 lead. However, a goal from Kieran Trippier and a goal from Harvey Barnes grabbed a 4 - 4 draw for Newcastle.
