Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool in the FA Cup on Mar 20. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool in the FA Cup on Mar 20. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

After disposing of both Arsenal and Leicester in this season’s FA Cup, Nottingham Forest are not ready to stop there and if they can dispose of another Premier League outfit this weekend, it may be the biggest shock of all.

That is because they play host to a red-hot version of Liverpool right now and after getting the better of Arsenal in midweek, they find themselves just a single point behind Manchester City in the Premier League.

Both Teams To Score

Although there has been plenty of cup magic at the City Ground this season, I have a feeling that the Road to Wembley ends on Sunday and although Nottingham Forest have created a great story in this season’s competition, there will be no fairy-tale ending.

Which means when looking at the biggest online betting sites, there is not a great deal of value in simply backing Liverpool to win and therefore, that is not a bet I am willing to place on Sunday.

However, I do like the look of both teams scoring at least once at the weekend and if like me, you think that will also be the case, you can back this outcome at the rather tempting price of 21/20. (bet365)

Nottingham Forest Form, squad news, opinion

On the face of this weekend’s encounter with Liverpool, Nottingham Forest are undoubtedly the underdogs. Then again, you could have said exactly the same about their previous meetings with Arsenal and Leicester.

A pair of cup ties which Stevie Cooper’s men were on top from start to finish and with the roar of the Nottingham Forest crowd pushing the players to new heights, the fans will be expected to be just as noisy on Sunday.

Of course, supporter noise alone cannot win a football match, but it can certainly help in making the atmosphere inhospitable and if the Forest fanbase can follow the template of two previous cup shocks, then Liverpool will certainly not have it their own way.

While when it comes to having it their own way, that has largely been the case for Forest in recent weeks and with a seven-game unbeaten streak in the Championship also behind them, their preparations for this encounter have been almost perfect.

The same could also be said for their midweek showing in the league and after getting the better of QPR by three goals to one, it has also helped their late surge to earn a play-off spot at the end of the season.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Liverpool, it is a rather lengthy injury list for manager Stevie Cooper, and this means he is without the services of Tobias Figueiredo, Sam Surridge and Keinan Davis.

Liverpool Form, squad news, opinion

After getting the better of Arsenal on Wednesday night, Liverpool fans are allowing themselves to dream of a second Premier League title in three years and if that is to be the case, then all eyes will be on Sunday April 10th.

Because that is the day when the two title protagonists will meet at the Etihad and the outcome on that afternoon will go some way to defining just who is crowned champions of England at the end of the season.

Of course, that is not the only silverware that Liverpool are looking to land between now and May and although the FA Cup will be the lowest of the three remaining priorities, it is still a competition that Jurgen Klopp would desperately like to win.

If only because he has never won it before and although some will argue that an extended cup run will get in the way of league business, others will argue that it only creates further momentum.

Momentum that Liverpool have been generating as of late and with 10 successive Premier League wins currently under their belt, they will now hope that their impressive form carries over to the FA Cup on Sunday.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Nottingham Forest, there are no new injuries for manager Jurgen Klopp to deal with and this means a fully fit Liverpool squad is ready to go on Sunday.

History

When it comes to the history of these two clubs, the peak of their rivalry was undoubtedly in the late 70’s, as Brian Clough led his Nottingham Forest side to the summit of English and European football. Something that came at the expense of Liverpool themselves.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, Nottingham Forest have won on 30 occasions, Liverpool 56 and there have been 29 draws

About the Venue

When it comes to the home of Nottingham Forest, it is fair to say that the City Ground has seen better days. Then again, it has also witnessed two cup upsets already this season and it would love to see a third on Sunday.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

When it comes to the outright odds for the FA Cup, Nottingham Forest will be considered as one of the rank outsiders along with Middlesbrough and unless they go on to win the competition itself, that status will likely stay unchanged.

While in the same market, there is no doubt that Liverpool are one of the favourites to scoop the trophy in May and if they do, it would be another leg in what could end up being a remarkable quadruple.
