There will be plenty of dead rubbers in the Premier League between now and the end of the season in May, but this is one game that certainly does not fit into that category. Nottingham Forest are fighting for survival in England's top division, while Manchester City know that the title will be theirs if they manage to win all of their remaining matches. Will they take one step closer to a fourth consecutive title or will Forest cause a major upset? This is what this prediction aims to answer, so let us crack on.

🏆 Nottingham Forest vs Manchester City: Who Will Win?

Nottingham Forest have picked up just the one point from their last three matches, which leaves them just the one point above the relegation zone. They are still waiting on their appeal for their four-point deduction, so they might end up getting some crucial points back at some stage. However, they cannot rely on this alone and probably need to pick up at least two wins in their remaining four matches to book themselves a spot in next season's Premier League. The main reason why they are where they are is the fact they do not score enough goals - only Everton, Burnley, and Sheffield United have scored fewer.

Manchester City have entered the end-of-season mode and are brushing opponents aside in their quest to create a little bit of Premier League history - becoming the first team to win four EPL titles back-to-back. They have scored nine goals in their last two matches courtesy of a 5-1 win over Luton and a 4-0 win against Brighton. They are in no mood to show any mercy it seems, so those of a Nottingham Forest persuasion will not be looking forward to this match.

I think that City will go on and win this match comfortably as they are just superior to Nottingham City in every way. As for the scoreline, I am going to go for a 3-0 win for Manchester City. If you are a frequent reader of my predictions, you will know that it is not very often that I predict a clean sheet for one team.

My Prediction: 🏆Nottingham Forest 0 Man City 3 ⚽

💯 Nottingham Forest vs Manchester City Match Odds

When Nottingham Forest travelled to the Etihad at the end of September last year, they were on the end of a 2-0 defeat. Manchester City got themselves off to a flier as Phil Foden opened the scoring in the 7th minute and Erling Haaland doubled their lead in the 14th minute. Forest grew into the game, and they even had a man extra for a whole half as Rodri was sent off just after half-time. However, they could not make this advantage count and Guardiola's men held out for a 2-0 win and a clean sheet.

All new UK betting sites and established ones will offer their sports bettors some kind of EPL betting options due to the prestige of this competition. However, not all bookies have been created equally and you will want to bet with the best ones around to ensure that you get the best value for your money. Thus, below I have given you the odds that five of my top bookmakers are currently offering for the match winner, both teams to score, and over/under 2.5 goals.

🏅 Nottingham Forest vs Manchester City: Match Winner Odds

A massive 50 points are separating Manchester City and Nottingham Forest in the league table, so you are probably expecting there to be a huge gap in the match winner odds that the bookmakers are offering. You would be right to think this as the bookmakers have City as the huge favourites to claim all three points on their march towards yet another title. In all honesty, there is little value to be had in this market, but below are the odds, nonetheless.

⚽ Nottingham Forest vs Manchester City: Both Teams To Score Odds

Goals are not in short supply when it comes to the English Premier League, which is why the majority of bookies will predict both teams to score in most matches. They are predicting the BTTS outcome in this match, but the odds that are on offer tell us that they are not completely sure as to which way this market will go. As you can tell from my predicted scoreline above, I do not think that both teams will score in this game, and you can find the both teams to score odds below:


🥅 Nottingham Forest vs Manchester City: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

The bookmakers are pretty sure that there will be over 2.5 goals scored in this Nottingham Forest vs Manchester City match but are equally as certain that there will not be over 3.5 goals. City will have all of the ball and it will be like an attack against defence training session, so there will be plenty of chances for Guardiola's men to score. You can check out the over/under 2.5 goals odds in the following table:

Over/Under 2.5 Goals
Over 2.51.501.501.491.481.49
Under 2.52.432.432.482.452.48

✔️ Nottingham Forest vs Manchester City - Betting Tips

Before you dive in and place a bet on a football match, even if you have a free bet to use, you should always take some time to read some betting tips from experienced tipsters since the extra knowledge that they have can help out greatly when it comes to putting down a winning bet. However, keep in mind that winning is something that can never be guaranteed when you are betting on a sport.

To start you off, below you can find my top four betting tips for this Nottingham Forest vs Manchester City match:

  • Tip 1: Bet on Man City to win in an accy: Manchester City will win this game, of that I have no doubt. There is not a single Forest player who would get into Pep's side. Man City have picked up four wins and a draw from their five previous away matches, while Forest have won only five home matches all season. This should not be much of a contest, which is why the odds for a City win are so short. Placing a single-match winner bet is not worth it, but you might want to consider adding a City to an accumulator. 10Bet Sport are currently offering odds of 1.33 for a City win.
  • Tip 2: Do not back both teams to score: We all know how good City have been in front of goal this season as they have been averaging just under 2.5 goals per match. They have also scored 17 goals in their previous four league matches. Nottingham Forest on the other hand have only scored 42 goals all season and City's defence will not be in any mood to gift them a goal. For me, they will not score in this game and 10Bet Sport are currently offering odds of 1.91 for this outcome.
  • Tip 3: Bet on Phil Foden to score: I backed Foden to score against Brighton on Thursday evening and he managed to bag himself a brace. He now has 16 goals in 31 EPL appearances for City this season and has been one of their standout players. He is in the form of his life at the moment and will be looking forward to coming up against one of the leakiest defences in the league - Forest are conceding an average of 1.76 goals per game. If you want to put money on Foden to find the back of the net again, then LeoVegas Sport are offering offering odds of 2.50 at present.
  • Tip 4: Bet on a 3-0 City win: I always enjoy trying to predict the correct scoreline of a match due to the enticing odds that are usually on offer. City will have all of the ball in this match and Forest will just try to keep the score as low as possible as goal difference might prove crucial come the end of the season. There will be plenty of scoring opportunities for City and I can see them scoring three goals and conceding none. If you also think City will win this 3-0, then you can find odds of 8.00 at Betiton Sport.

N.B. Always gamble responsibly when sports betting. Do not spend more than you can afford to lose. Stop gambling when you are no longer having fun.

1️⃣Nottingham Forest Update

Nottingham Forest have spent a lot of money to try and stay in the Premier League, but it has not worked out the way that they would have hoped. They are currently sitting in 17th place in the table with just 26 points from the 34 matches that they have played. They are battling it out with Luton Town and Burnley to avoid being one of the two teams that will join Sheffield United in the Championship next season. Their goal difference is quite a bit better than their relegation rivals at present, which could be worth a point come the end of the season.

They are sitting in 17th place in the form table having only picked up nine points from the previous 30 that have been available to them. During this time, they have scored an average of 1.20 goals per game while conceding 1.60. Below you can find their previous five EPL results:

Nuno Espírito Santo has had his fair share of injuries since he took over as Nottingham Forest boss, but they have eased off a little bit at present. He has just the two players out injured, and you can see who these are in the table below:

2️⃣Manchester City Update

City and their fans will be disappointed that they are out of the UEFA Champions League, but they can still end the season on a high by winning the Premier League for the fourth time in a row and by winning the FA Cup. After their defeat to Real Madrid on penalties in the UCL quarter-finals, they seem like a team on a mission to ensure that their season does not end in complete failure. They have been scoring goals for fun and do not look in the mood to concede many.

They are currently second in the EPL form table with seven wins and three draws from their previous ten games. During this time, they have scored 24 goals while conceding only seven. The end of the season is the worst time to play City as they always seem to enter an unforgiving mode. Below are their previous five EPL results:

Guardiola will be happy that no players picked up an injury during their routine win against Brighton on Thursday evening. As such, he still just has the one player who will not be available to play in this game. You can see who that is below:
