Tottenham vs Nottingham

All eyes will be on Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when Tottenham and Nottingham Forest lock horns in a highly-anticipated Premier League game. Spurs are determined to book their place in the Champions League and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Reds on Matchday 32. Fit-again Brazil forward Richarlison is pushing for a start, while Brennan Johnson should be fit to face Forest.

The visitors, on the other hand, are fighting hard to secure yet another elite division survival. Nottingham Forest proved their worth in a 3-1 win over Fulham on Tuesday, but given their difficulties on the road, we predict that the Champions-League-chasing hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. Taiwo Awoniyi remains on the sidelines with injury, whereas Willy Boly is a major doubt and the defender will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.

How the bookies view it

Tottenham Hotspur are heavy favourites at a best 2/5 with JILI777 while Nottingham Forest are as big as 7/1 with Unibet. The draw pays a best 9/2 at JILI 777.

Recent head to head

Nottingham Forest don’t have a great record in this fixture of late, winning just one of the last nine meetings. That victory came in the League Cup last season and Spurs have won the last five league clashes, including a 2-0 triumph at the City Ground earlier in this campaign.

Players to watch

Timo Werner has been a decent signing for Tottenham Hotspur and the German set up their midweek goal. He has also chipped in with two goals since his January arrival from RB Leipzig and is 5/4 with Bet365 for anytime scorer.

Morgan Gibbs-White was superb for Nottingham Forest in that vital midweek victory, chipping in with a goal and an assist. He’s 23/5 with JILI777 for another strike here while the same firm price him at a tempting 10/11 just to have a shot on target.

Latest Meetings

Tottenham Hotspur have dominated this matchup in recent years. They’ll go into this on the back of five wins in the previous six meetings with the Reds.

Spurs celebrated a 2-0 victory in this season’s tie against Nottingham Forest in December last year at The City Ground.

Only one of the previous four head-to-head outings saw three or more goals scored.

Tottenham vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

There is a lot to like about the home win pick here. Spurs won eight of the last ten home outings across competitions. They own a great home record with 11 victories in 15 Premier League games at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this season.

Ange Postecoglou’s men need points in the battle for the top-four finish and a place in the UEFA Champions League next season. Nottingham Forest have been dreadful travels in this term of the Premier League. They won 2, drew 4, and lost 9 of the 15 away matches so far in the season.

Finally, Tottenham won five of the previous six head-to-head clashes in this matchup. We’ll back Spurs to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the 2.10 odds.

The second pick would be Heung-Min Son to score anytime at the 1.95 odds. Son is Spurs’ talisman. He has scored 15 goals so far in the season. The South Korean star also takes penalties for the team. We expect Tottenham to dominate on Sunday against Nottingham Forest. In these circumstances, Sonny will get his scoring opportunities.
