Competition: Premier League
Market: Brighton win
Odds: 4/7 @ 888sport
Looking to put their FA Cup heartbreak to one side, Brighton will make the trip to a struggling Nottingham Forest on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts., last seen over the weekend getting hit with an action-packed 3-2 loss away at Liverpool, it is no secret that Nottingham Forest are in the midst of a Premier League nightmare. Now seen as one of the leading contenders to be hit with an immediate Championship return, Steve Cooper finds a huge amount of pressure on his shoulders. Slipping into the bottom-three and knowing that they face another tough challenge on Wednesday night, the ex-Swansea boss has seen his side fail to win any of their last 11 straight appearances. With their woeful run of form stemming all the way back to a 1-0 victory against Leeds on February 5th, it should also be noted that Forest have lost each of their previous four Premier League outings. Likewise, showing a string of glaring defensive issues on either side of March’s international break, Cooper’s side have already shipped a remarkable 59 top-flight strikes this season.
As for the visitors, while Brighton might have suffered real FA Cup heartbreak at Wembley over the weekend, Roberto De Zerbi’s men have only continued on a Premier League romp this season. Gaining a string of plaudits since appointing the former Sassuolo boss back in September, the Seagulls have their sights firmly set on clinching a famous European finish this season. Smelling the chance to claim an immediate boost when they travel to the City Ground on Wednesday night, Brighton have lost just one of their last seven Premier League appearances. Last seen in top-flight action claiming a deserved 2-1 victory away at Chelsea, De Zerbi’s side have also gained a reputation for their success away from the Amex. In fact, the top-six dreamers have lost just a single Premier League contest away from the south coast since a 3-1 defeat against Manchester City way back on October 22nd.
