Swansea v Nottingham Forest Betting Tips – FA Cup 4th Round

Remarkably this will be just the second time these two have met in the FA Cup, the first being all the way back in 1929. The hosts did win their last Championship encounter again Forest earlier in the season and may sit second in the Championship table, however they haven’t registered back-to-back wins against their opponents since 1953!

These two sides hold different ambitions this season and whereas Swansea have risen to second place in the Championship table, Nottingham Forest are hovering near the relegation zone and trying to put some distance between themselves and the four teams below.
Both sides arrive with decent form behind them. Swansea have won five of six unbeaten games as they conceded just one goal, against fellow promotion contenders Watford, while they scored twice in five of these matches as well, with four finishing 2-0.
Nottingham Forest had won four of seven unbeaten matches before going down to top-half outfit Middlesbrough last time out, netting a late consolation in a 2-1 defeat, but they’ve still won three of their past four over Preston, Cardiff and Millwall.
Under 2.5 Goals
The visitors have however only registered two victories from their past 18 road trips since March, losing half of these games, as all but one of the defeats came by 1-0 or 2-0 scorelines.
These were notably low-scoring affairs and in fact, 16 of Forest’s 17 away days since June have seen fewer than three goals, as they themselves never scored more than once in a game.
Swansea To Win 2-0
Low-scoring games has also been a common theme for the hosts, who have seen a maximum of two goals in a massive 18 of 20 matches dating back into October.
Swansea only lost three of those encounters, while of their 11 victories from this period, eight finished 2-0 and a further two ended 1-0.
On home turf alone, they’ve conceded just two goals in nine unbeaten appearances, as they won to nil in over half these, so the win to nil and correct score markets hold obvious appeal.
Swansea To Win To Nil
Swansea comfortably possess the Championship’s best defensive record and there was only one goal when these two met at the City Ground in November as the Welsh side ran out winners.
Moreover, their last two tussles at the Liberty Stadium have yielded a combined solitary strike, so a single goal should be enough for the Swans to sail through to the next round.
