Nottingham Forest vs Brentford Betting Tips

  • Over 2.5 goals – EVS
  • Taiwo Awoniyi to score anytime – 13/8

Team news

Steve Cooper only has two personnel concerns ahead of this weekend’s clash, with Danilo and Nuno Tavares doubts to face Brentford. The Welshman is still figuring out what his best 11 is after another influx of players this summer.

For Brentford, Rico Henry’s season looks to be over due to an anterior cruciate ligament injury. Kevin Schade, Ben Mee, Mikkel Damsgaard, Josh Dasilva and Shandon Baptiste are also unavailable for Thomas Frank this weekend.

Over 2.5 goals @ EVS

With both sides looking for a response to defeats last time out, we are expecting there to be a few goals on display at the City Ground. Taiwo Awoniyi is the hosts’ leading scorer in the league with three goals, and he has also contributed two assists for his side.

Bryan Mbeumo has scored four times for Brentford in the top flight this term, but the Cameroon international has failed to score in his last two league appearances. He will be hoping that he can get back on the scoresheet this weekend and help inspire his team to their first win in five games.

Forest have seen at least three goals scored in three of their Premier League games so far, while Brentford have been involved in four matches which have seen three or more goals. Evidence points to another game with a flurry of goals for both these sides.

Taiwo Awoniyi to score anytime @ 13/8 

Like Mbeumo, Awoniyi is experiencing a goal drought, with the striker not getting on the scoresheet in his previous three Premier League appearances. Brentford feels like an excellent opportunity for the Nigerian to break his duck and help his team get back to winning ways.

Awoniyi’s speed and physical presence makes him a handful for opposition defenders and with the disruptive form Brentford’s back line are in currently, he will fancy his chances to rediscover his form in front of goal and help Forest climb the table.
