Relegation Battle Showdown at the City Ground

Key Stats
– Nottingham Forest have won just once in their last six games, while Southampton have secured only one point from their last six matches.
– Taiwo Awoniyi averages 1.2 shots per game and 0.4 shots on target for Nottingham Forest.
– Ten goals have been scored in Southampton’s last two away games, with 12 goals recorded in Forest’s last three matches.

Southampton faces a crucial match against relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest on Monday night, knowing that anything short of a victory could spell doom for their Premier League survival. The Saints are currently six points adrift of safety, with only four games left and a poor goal difference to contend with.

Nottingham Forest’s Survival Struggle

Forest finds themselves in a precarious position, locked in a fierce battle for survival alongside Leicester City and Leeds United. Their recent form is less than inspiring, having won just once in their last six games, losing five times, and suffering a late collapse against Brentford. Despite their struggles, Forest’s home form is relatively better, making them the favorites in this matchup.

Southampton’s Fading Hopes

The Saints’ fortunes have been abysmal in recent times, winning just one match since mid-February. Their last six games have yielded a single point, with a disastrous draw against Arsenal after squandering a 3-1 lead. With upcoming fixtures against in-form Brighton and Liverpool, Southampton’s situation appears increasingly dire.

The Bookies’ Perspective

Nottingham Forest is considered the favorite for this match, with bookmakers offering odds of 11/10. Southampton is priced at 12/5 with William Hill, while a draw is set at 13/5 by bet365.

Head-to-Head History

The two sides met earlier this season, with Forest emerging victorious in a 1-0 win at St Mary’s. Southampton’s last visit to the City Ground dates back 11 years, where they secured a 3-0 victory.

Key Players to Watch

Danilo, the Brazilian midfielder for Forest, has been a goal threat in recent games, scoring in his last two appearances. He is priced at 15/2 to score anytime with bet365. Stuart Armstrong, a Scottish international and former Celtic star, has demonstrated his goal-scoring ability by finding the net in Southampton’s 3-1 defeat against Newcastle United.

William Hill offers odds of 8/1 for Armstrong to score anytime in the upcoming match. Despite these options make some appeals, I think this is going to be a rather blocked and nervy affair and there is more value in the shots on target market instead.

Taiwo Awoniyi’s Potential Impact

Nottingham Forest’s Nigerian forward, Taiwo Awoniyi, could be a difference-maker in this crucial relegation battle. Averaging 1.2 shots per game and 0.4 shots on target,

Awoniyi has the potential to capitalise on Southampton’s vulnerable defense. In a game where Forest is expected to attack, it’s possible for him to secure at least two shots on target, also considering Forest’s decent home performance this season.
Forest Edging A Crucial Battle

Considering Forest’s ability to elevate their performance at home and Southampton’s waning spirit, a 2-0 victory for the hosts seems plausible. Saints have missed too many opportunities and seem destined to relegation, so backing Nottingham to prevail looks the way to go in this huge ‘six-relegation’ battle.
