Swansea - Nottingham

Asian Handicap
Pick: Swansea -0.5
Odds: 1.99
Stake: 1

Match date: 17/02/2021

Swansea face Nottingham Forest at the Liberty Stadium for the second time in less than a month after they smashed the visitors by 5-1 in the FA Cup fourth round.

This is not the only win of the season over Nottingham as Swansea won also the first fixture by 0-1 in November. 

Both teams coming to this clash in good form recently. Swansea are unbeaten in eight league matches, winning six of those, while at home it is 11 games without defeat, keeping a clean sheet in eight of those matches.

Such good results have brought Swansea four points behind second-placed Brentford and five from first-placed Norwich City, but Swansea has two games in hand to play, so potentially they could be in first two places which gives direct promotion, who is their main objective after three years since their relegation from Premiership. 

Beside the good form, Swansea will have another advantage over Nottingham in tonight’s clash as they will be fresher since their match in the weekend against Sheffield was called off while Nottingham had a tough fixture against Bournemouth. Interesting was that Nottingham didn’t make any substitution in that match, which is very strange especially this season when teams make a lot of rotation. So I suppose Chris Hughton will field the same players and they will be more tired than Swansea’s players. 

As I mentioned above, Nottingham also in good form entering this match. They are in their best run of form of a challenging campaign having lost just one of their last 11 league games.That is a sequence that has pulled them clear of the relegation zone, and currently they are five points above the relegation zone. 

I suppose today Nottingham would want to take some revenge after being heavily defeated by Swansea in the FA Cup last month, and they have decent chances to achieve that If they maintain their current form. 

They have gone four games without defeat since that defeat, keeping three clean sheets, but nevertheless tonight I will back Swansea who are also in great form more rested and should have enough to overcome Nottingham once again this season. 

For this match Swansea will miss Smith and Cullen while Nottingham will be without Sow and Arter.
