Under 2.5 goals at Huddersfield vs Nottingham Forest 4/6 for Friday’s Championship showdown
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
In a battle between two sides drastically struggling at the start of the New Year, Huddersfield will host Nottingham Forest from behind closed doors on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Huddersfield might have managed to extend on their Championship status last season, it has been an extremely worrying start of the former Premier League outfit this time around. Crashing out of the EFL Cup thanks to a shock 1-0 loss at home against lower-league Rochdale earlier in the month, Huddersfield have also been hit with back-to-back second-tier defeats. Signing off the extended 2019/2020 campaign by managing to win just one of their final six Championship contests, it should also be noted that Friday’s hosts have failed to record even a single consolation strike in any of their opening three matchups across all formats this time around. It’s also worth highlighting that continuing on from last season, four of Huddersfield’s last six home fixtures have seen under 2.5 goals by the final whistle.
As for the visitors, enduring a torrid end to the 2019/2020 campaign, Nottingham Forest have once again worryingly struggled this time around. Along with crashing out of the EFL Cup thanks to a 1-0 loss against Barnsley when opening the New Year, the Reds have also opened their Championship campaign with back-to-back defeats. Suffering back-to-back 2-0 defeats against Cardiff and QPR this season, it should also be noted that Forest have failed to record a single strike in any of their opening three matchups this year. In fact, along with signing off last year’s campaign with back-to-back defeats once again, Friday’s guests have failed to win any of their last nine competitive matchups on the bounce and it’s worth noting that all bar one of those nine appearances have seen under 2.5 goals by the final whistle.
