TIP OF THE DAY: Nottingham Forest – Tottenham: A tough test for the Spurs!

On Friday, there is a very interesting betting offer, as there is one match from each of the “big five leagues” on the schedule, and we believe that the most interesting duel is played at the City Ground, where Nottingham Forest and Tottenham will measure their strengths. The start of the match between these two clubs with a really long tradition is scheduled for 9 PM.

Nottingham Forest: Can the Foresters achieve a triumph after more than a month?

As is probably well known to everyone, Nottingham Forest returned to the Premier League last season after a wait of as long as 23 years, which was certainly a big cause for celebration in the city that is also known for Robin Hood. The team led by Steve Cooper, who generally does a very good job at this club, were better than Huddersfield in the big Championship playoff final with a minimal score. Looking back at history, it’s worth noting that Nottingham Forest last played in the Premier League in the 1998/99 season, which is unacceptable for a club that has been the European champion twice.

In addition to those two trophies in the most prestigious European club competition, it should be remembered that the popular Foresters have once won the English championship, in 1978, and besides that, this team has finished the season in second place twice, with a reminder that Nottingham has won the FA Cup twice in its history. Last season, Cooper’s team achieved their primary goal, which was, of course, to stay in the top flight, finishing sixteenth in the table with a four-point advantage over the teams that had to move down to the Championship, noting that Nottingham played four great matches in the last four rounds, achieving two wins and two draws, and deservedly staying in the best league in the world.

The primary goals have not drastically changed this time either, and after sixteen matches played, the Foresters are in sixteenth place in the table with a five-point advantage over the most endangered teams, which is certainly a nice cushion for the continuation of the championship. However, the former English champion has been playing really disastrously lately, so this team has achieved only one draw and four losses in the last five Premier League matches. In the last round, Cooper’s team drew in a tough away game at Wolverhampton with a score of 1:1, noting that the Wolves were a far better rival in that match.

At home, Nottingham Forest has played seven matches so far, achieving only two victories, the same number of defeats, and three draws, and interestingly, the Foresters’ last triumph at their stadium in the league came at the beginning of November against Aston Villa, which is the most pleasant surprise of this year’s edition of the English Premier League.

Tottenham: The match against Newcastle is a sign that better days are coming again!

At the start of the season, everyone was skeptical about Harry Kane’s departure from Tottenham, but it’s worth remembering that the London team also played very poorly last season with him, and in the end, the former Champions League finalist had to settle for eighth place in the table, with one point less than seventh-placed Aston Villa, which meant only one thing, that the popular Spurs won’t be seen in European competitions this season, undoubtedly marking the season as unsuccessful.

As we have already mentioned, Kane left Tottenham during the summer, and the London club got a new coach as Angelos Postecoglou took over the hot seat, and as time passes, it seems that this was indeed the best possible solution. First of all, a reminder that Tottenham played convincingly the most beautiful football in England in the opening part of the championship, which brought this team to the top of the table. Unfortunately, the Spurs didn’t stay there for too long, and to be honest, it was clear from the beginning that Tottenham did not have a wide rotation, and on top of that, the club faced significant personnel changes, so Postecoglou for this match against the former English champion will not be able to count on Perisic, Bentancur, Maddison, Dier, Van de Beek, Sessegnon, White, and Solomon.

Lately, the former Champions League finalist has played several very poor matches, as Tottenham’s players tied five matches without a win, however, in the last round, this team finally played a truly great game and defeated the not naive team of Newcastle at their stadium, and that duel at the new White Hart Lane ended with a score of 4:1, with the note that the Magpies scored an honorary goal in the very end of the match.

This time Richarlison stood out, scoring two goals, but the contribution of captain Son, who managed to assist his teammates for a goal twice besides scoring one, should not be forgotten. In away games so far, the Spurs have played eight matches and suffered only one defeat, recently from Wolverhampton, and besides that, the currently fifth-placed team in the Premier League has achieved four victories, with three draws. The last head-to-head encounter between Tottenham and Nottingham Forest was played in London in March this year when the host celebrated with a 3:1 victory.

Our suggestion

Nottingham has, to put it mildly, not been celebrated lately, and we believe that Tottenham, which has been waiting for a victory away since the end of October, could take advantage of all this, so we boldly advise you to opt for 2 which the bookmaker Mozzartbet pays with odds of 1.75.

It is very likely that Son and company in this visit to the former English champion will score two or more goals, so we warmly recommend that you focus on the total goals over 1.5 with odds of 1.68.

Finally, it really seems that the Spurs will try to impose their rhythm from the first minute of the match, quickly take the lead and easily bring the match to an end, so we boldly advise you to try with the htft 2-2, all with odds of 2.55 at Mozzart Nigeria.
