Valencia vs Nottingham Forest Predictions
A Pre-Season Battle of Resilience and Resurgence
– Valencia have scored 42 goals and conceded 45 goals in their last 38 matches.
– Taiwo Awoniyi of Nottingham Forest was the key player in securing their Premier League status, scoring the decisive goal against Arsenal.
Nottingham Forest, invigorated by their recent triumph over Notts County, are heading towards the Iberian Peninsula for a pre-season clash against La Liga team Valencia this Tuesday. Both teams experienced a struggle for survival in their respective leagues last season. Nevertheless, Steve Cooper’s squad displayed a more satisfying performance, securing a 16th spot in their league compared to the disheartening performance of Los Che.
The trials faced by Valencia were indeed disheartening for the avid followers of Spanish football. Only a few years ago, they were contenders for a spot in the Champions League. However, the past four seasons have seen them hover between the threat of relegation and mid-table mediocrity. Their tumultuous season involved a sequence of three head coaches, with Ruben Baraja finally taking the reins and managing to keep the team afloat in La Liga, despite failing to win any of their final three matches of the season.
On the other hand, Nottingham Forest’s 16th place finish was celebrated as they secured their Premier League status. They had an impressive win against Arsenal, with Taiwo Awoniyi scoring the sole goal, which reaffirmed that Premier League football would stay at the City Ground for the next term.
The focus for Nottingham Forest now is consolidation. Their pre-season preparations have begun with a narrow victory over Notts County, where Hwang Ui-jo scored the only goal. Forest also have scheduled encounters with a variety of continental pre-season opponents such as Leeds United, PSV Eindhoven, Rennes and Eintracht Frankfurt, as well as a rematch with Valencia after their 1980 European Super Cup clash.
Prediction for the Match Outcome
Analysing both teams’ performances, our first prediction is a draw. Valencia have recently showcased an enhanced defensive structure after adding Cenk Ozkacar and Pepelu to their ranks. Despite this, they have an average BettingTips4You Expert rating of 6.78, placing them 10th in their competition, with 42 goals scored, and conceding 45 in 38 matches. Their ball possession stands at 52% on average, with an approximate 80.6% accuracy. These statistics reflect the potential for a balanced match-up against Nottingham Forest, hence the draw prediction.
Correct Score Prediction
Our correct score prediction is 1-1. Forest’s pre-season match form, combined with Valencia’s overall performance, indicates a likely low-scoring game. Forest’s victory against Notts County was a low-scoring encounter, and Valencia have displayed a history of low-scoring matches, with an average of only 1.1 goals per game.
Our goalscorer prediction is Taiwo Awoniyi. Awoniyi, a key player in Nottingham Forest’s Premier League survival, could be expected to find the back of the net in this encounter. His goal against Arsenal reflects his form and potential, making him a strong candidate for a goal in this match as he would want to start well immediately from the pre-season.
