Nottingham Forest have been a difficult team to beat; they've lost just once in their last 10 games across all competitions. To be fair, that loss was against Liverpool, one of the best teams in the world; Forest have actually defeated Premier League sides like Arsenal and Leicester City this season. On the other hand, we have a Blackpool side that has no losses in their last four games; they've won three of those four games, with a draw. It's worth noting that these teams tend to draw when they play against each other; five of their last eight encounters ended in draws. Considering both teams have not lost a lot of games recently, we're predicting a draw here.
Both sides will score
Clashes between Blackpool and Nottingham Forest tend to produce goals at both ends; both teams scored in five of their last seven meetings. As a matter of fact, both teams were amongst the goals in all of Blackpool's last seven visits to this stadium. Furthermore, both teams have been consistent when it comes to finding the net, especially recently; Nottingham Forest scored in five of their last six games, averaging two goals per game in that stretch. In the same vein, Blackpool scored in 15 of their last 16 games; conversely, they have seen their defense breached in seven of their last 10 games. Considering both teams scored in seven of Blackpool's last 10 games, both teams should score.
