Arsenal 1/2 to beat Nottingham Forest in Sunday’s FA Cup encounter
Competition: FA Cup
Market: Arsenal to beat Nottingham Forest
Odds: 1/2 @ Bet365
The magic of the cup is back as the FA Cup returns this weekend for a round of fixtures that will surely provide no end of goals, moments of skill and shocks, with more than one big team facing humiliation from this famous competition. With this in mind, Arsenal face a tough test as they travel to play Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
Nottingham Forest have been in pretty poor form this season and they are in need of some form of distraction from their inconsistent league campaign. In the Championship they have 10 wins, but they have lost 14 times and drawn twice, while they have scored 33 goals and conceded 42 times this season. This has all seen Forest pick up 32 points this campaign, meaning they are eight clear of the relegation zone. In their last five games, they have lost three times and drawn twice, meaning they are in horrendous form going into their game against Premier League opposition.
Arsenal, on the other hand, have been fairly good this season and they will be targetting an FA Cup triumph this campaign. In the league, they have won 11 games, lost five and drawn six, while they have scored 40 goals and conceded 28 times. In their last five they are unbeaten, but they have drawn three times, winning the other two. On current form and league positioning, there is surely only one winner in this game. With this in mind, we are backing Arsenal with odds of 1/2 from Bet365.
