Pep Guardiola's team took on West Ham United in the English capital the previous weekend. In the first half, the reigning champions of England were catching up. They made the difference after the break, scoring three goals against the Londoners - a 3:1 victory. This is the fifth win in a row for the Citizens in the current EPL campaign, and they lead the standings by two points. This midweek saw a similar scenario in the Champions League at home to Red Star Belgrade - a 3:1 win in the first leg.
After a 1:0 away victory over Chelsea, Nottingham Forest returned home to host newcomers Burnley. It was a difficult encounter for Steve Cooper's side. Midway through the second half, the Foresters leveled with the help of Hudson-Odoi. In extra time, Nottingham Forest had the advantage but failed to capitalize on the opportunity - a 1:1 draw. Nottingham Forest now sits eighth in the EPL standings with seven points.
Expert Betting Tips
In the current EPL campaign, Nottingham Forest's character in matches against strong opponents has been surprising. They almost sealed a draw with Arsenal at the Emirates, came close to beating Manchester United at Old Trafford, and took all three points from Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. It is unlikely that the reigning champions will underestimate their opponents. Obviously, Steve Cooper's team will play defensively and go on the counterattack, but the visitors have someone to run behind the backs of the defensive Citizens.
