Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Following an expected loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Wolverhampton will look to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they take on Nottingham Forest on Matchday 11. The Wolves will not have a better chance than this to get back on course, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Defender Nathan Collins has yet to serve his ban, while Diego Costa should continue to lead the line for the hosts in Raul Jimenez’s absence.
The Reds, on the other hand, did well to hold Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa to a 1-1 draw on Monday, with the team putting an end to their five-game losing run. The newcomers, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Wolverhampton’s party at Molineux Stadium. All Richards, Colback, and Niakhate should miss out with injuries for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Adama Traore):
After starting his youth career at Hospitalet, Adama Traore moved to Barcelona football academy La Masia in 2004. The pacey winger made a great progress during his spell with the Catalan giants and it has to be noted that he scored eight goals in 63 appearances for Barca B.
Adama Traore made his debut for the first team against Granada (4-0) on November 23, 2013, replacing Brazilian superstar Neymar in the 83rd minute of the match. In the summer of 2015, he signed for Aston Villa for a fee of £7 million, but he made no more than 11 appearances in the Premier League for the Vilans. At the end of the 2015/2016 season he moved to fellow English club Middlesbrough and he made his debut for the Boro in a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on September 10, 2016.
Due to his dual citizenship, Adama Traore is eligible to represent Spain and Mali at senior level, but it has to be noted that he played for youth categories of La Roja.
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.
