Our football match prediction:
Aston Villa will be aiming to build on a thrilling 3-0 win over Barnsley when they welcome Middlesbrough at their Villa Park on Matchday 9. The Villans put an end to their three-game winless run in the Championship at the weekend, but they need to keep on winning if they are to return to the Premier League. Steve Bruce’s men have been impressive at the back of late and it is more than obvious that summer signing John Terry is helping the team improve defensively. A man to watch in the home team will be Albert Adomah, who scored a brace in the 3-0 victory over Barnsley. The Reds, on other hand, have been having their ups and downs in the Championship this season, but it is well known that they are not considered good travelers and, taking everything into account, we predict that the Villans are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration on Saturday evening.
Highlighted Player (Terry):
John Terry is a player who dedicated his professional football career to Chelsea. The veteran defender is well known for his leadership qualities and it is no surprise he was the captain of the England national team. Terry plays as a centre back, is known for his aerial ability, but for hard tackling as well. The England player retired from the international football on 23 September, 2012 and it has to be noted that he scored six goals in 78 appearances for the Three Lions. John Terry has won four Premier League trophies with Chelsea, while clinching the FA Cup title with the Stamford Bridge outfit on five occasions. In 2012 John Terry helped Chelsea beat Bayern Munich in the Champions League final and that is considered his biggest success. In 2009 he reportedly had a four-month affair with Wayne Bridge’s girlfriend and that is why he is considered one of the most disliked footballers in the world of football.
Highlighted Team (Nottingham Forest):
Nottingham Forest, the club that are often referred to as Forest, were formed in 1865. They have been playing their home games at the City Ground since 1898 and the capacity of the stadium is 30,445. Nottingham Forest are regarded as one of the greatest English clubs as they won the European Cup on two occasions. In 1979 Forest outplayed Malmo (1-0) at the Olympiastadion in Munich in the final of the elite competition, with the team beating Hamburg in 1980 in the title game at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (1-0). Nottingham Forest won the national championship in the 1977/1978 season, with the team finishing the campaign seven points clear of second-placed Liverpool. To make things even better for the fans, the City Ground outfit clinched the FA Cup trophies in 1898 and 1959. Derby County are regarded as Forest’s bitterest rivals and the two local rivals contest in the East Midlands derby. In their first ever meeting in the local derby Forest recorded a 3-2 win over Derby County.
