Form hasn't been great recently for Leicester City, who hope to turn things around against Nottingham Forest on Monday. This is a round nine match in the current Premier League campaign, and they face each other at King Power Stadium. Having never shared a season in the Premier League in recent past, this is the first time Leicester City comes up against Nottingham Forest in this context.

With the gap between Nottingham Forest and Leicester City being only one place in the tournament table, this is obviously an important match. The guests currently occupy number 19, while the hosts are behind them by three points as number 20 in the Premier League.

Leicester City as well as Nottingham Forest suffered disappointing defeats in their most previous match. This could lead to a cautious encounter as neither side naturally fancies losing once again already.

Leicester City step into their next home match on Monday having scored a nice average of two goals in ten matches. They managed a total of 20 goals, while also allowing 25 goals against. That is an average of 2.5 goals against per match. They were able to hang on to a clean sheet zero times in those matches.

Nottingham Forest average 0.9 goals a game in their last seven outing, scoring a total of six goals. They conceded an average of 2.4 per game, for a total of 17 goals, whilst keeping their opponents from scoring one times.

Leicester City vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

Leicester City endured a tough spell in their previous three matches, which brought three defeats. They lost 0-1 against Manchester United, before Brighton won 5-2, while Tottenham claimed all three points in a 6-2 win. In their last six Premier League home matches, Leicester City have two wins, while they've drawn one and lost three. They scored 11 and conceded eight goals.

Nottingham Forest endured a tough spell in their last three matches, from which they have nothing to show. They were beaten 6-0 by Manchester City, before Bournemouth ran out 2-3 winners. A third defeat on the trot followed against Fulham, who came out 2-3 winners. Nottingham Forest didn't manage a single away win in their last six Premier League matches, but managed one draws, while suffering two defeats. They conceded nine and scored one goals themselves.

Nottingham Forest and Leicester City seem to find it tough getting their defensively lines in order, as they both concede too many goals. We hope the trend continues this coming Monday, as we aim for both teams to score.
