Match Preview & Team News
The Reds have exited the relegation zone thanks to the streak of three draws and two victories in the last five appearances. Squad is occupying the 19th position, having 22 points total but still being relatively close to the red line. As for the opposition, Cardiff City have pretty much ruined all the good work achieved in October and November. They are on a negative run of three straight defeats. Read on our FA Cup betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
As mentioned above, Nottingham Forest have finally started delivering. In case you forgot, this squad was very serious contender to earn promotion last season. The missing piece was Lewis Grabban who scored three goals in the last five outings. He was without goal for the first 17 rounds though. Nottingham ended last year’s participation in this competition at the same stage in 3rd round getting defeated by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
As for their opposition, The Bluebirds have slipped to 15th place after losing four encounters in the last five outings. Their back line has failed to keep one single clean sheet for a very long time. Cardiff were super close to the playoff zone for most of the time this season, but recent results were just devastating.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Five out of the last six head to head matches between these opponents have ended Under 2.5 FT. We are expecting both sides to be super-careful, at least in the opening stages so this option is the most appealing at 3/5.
Hosts to qualify at 4/5 is going to be the secondary choice. As mentioned above, The Reds have picked up amazing form recently, while Bluebirds know about nothing else but defeats recently.
