Finishing in 17th place but Nottingham Forest was the worst defense in the EFL Championship last season. They only had 37 goals after 46 rounds. Foresters for many years has always actively played counter-attacking defense against a team and emphasized keeping clean sheets above all. Their opponent this time, Coventry, is also playing quite badly in the pre-season. The home team even lost 3/4 of the last friendly matches and scored only 1 goal. History also shows that since 2004 until now, neither Coventry City nor Nottingham Forest has been able to score more than 2 goals every time they have the opportunity to face each other. 

Coventry City vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

Select: Under FT.


Invincible in all 3 friendlies at the beginning of the season with 2 victories and keeping a clean sheet in both matches, Nottingham Forest is having a good run of momentum for the opening match. Last season it was Foresters who ranked right behind Coventry and had even fewer defeats than the opponent. Confrontation history is in favor of coach Chris Hughton’s students when they won the last 2/3 times as a guest on the opponent’s field. The away record of the City Ground team last season is very good with a series of 8 consecutive unbeaten matches up to this point. Bringing in a lot of quality free signings, it is clear that Nottingham Forest’s goal this season is to have a breakthrough in achievements compared to recent years.

Having lost all of the last 4 friendlies and scoring only 1 goal, Coventry had a pretty bad pre-season. Last season, coach Mark Robins’ army even lost to Nottingham Forest in both out and back matches. In front of opponents with unpleasant gameplay, the home team of Ricoh Arena lost many times due to lax defense. From 2011 until now, Coventry has not once enjoyed the joy of winning against Nottingham Forest. Before a relatively dirty opponent, it is not excluded that Coventry City will lose in the opening match.

Select: Nottingham Forest FT.


It is quite surprising that Nottingham Forest has won the last 3 times against Coventry. Broadly, in the last 10 encounters, the away team won 7 times compared to only 2 of Coventry City. With a pretty good start, Nottingham Forest is being evaluated a bit better this season.
