Our match prediction:
Tuesday’s match at Griffin Park sees Brentford take on Nottingham Forest on day 3 of the new Championship campaign. The Bees were beaten by Huddersfield Town in the opening match of the season, but they proved their worth in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Ipswich Town. Brentford aim to secure promotion to the Premier League and, no doubt, they will give their best to make a flying start to the season. Nottingham Forest recorded a thrilling 4-3 victory over Burton in their opener, but Brighton proved to be a big catch for the Reds on day 2. Forest struggle on the travels and despite the fact that key player Assombalonga has overcome his injury, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed from Tuesday’s football match. It has to be noted that the Bees scored 2+ goals in each of their last four meetings with Nottingham Forest.
Highligted Player (Maxime Collin):
After spending two seasons at Boulogne, Maxime Colin joined Troyes in 2012. The pacey right back made 55 appearances for Troyes and in 2014 he signed a three-year deal with Belgian side Anderlecht. On 13 September, 2014 he made his Anderlecht debut, in a 2-2 draw with Lierse. After playing 16 games for the Belgian outfit in the 2014/2015 Pro League campaign, Maxime Colin signed a four-year contract with Brentford in August, 2015 for an undisclosed fee. Reports in England suggested, though, that the fee was around £900,000. Colin made his Brentford debut on 22 August, 2015 in a 1-0 loss to Burnley and it has to be noted that he came on as a substitute 30 minutes before the final whistle. Speaking of his international career, the defender, who was born on 15 November, 1991, has seven caps for the France U20 team. Colin made France U20 World Cup squad as well and he played a part in matches against Colombia and Mexico.
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.
