Carabao Cup Round-Up: 30/10/2018

Paddy Power offer bannerBurton Albion vs Nottingham Forest

The first of two games in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night pairs together two Midlands outfits when Burton Albion host Nottingham Forest. Burton come into this game without a win in each of their last two matches, with two tough fixtures against both Portsmouth and Peterborough United yielding just one point from a possible six. With just one win in their last four games at home, it gets no easier for the Brewers here against one of the teams looking to contend for promotion in the Championship. Forest have lost just one of their last nine games in the Championship and were unfortunate not to come away from their trip to Elland Road with all three points at the weekend. Also losing just once on the road, they will be confident of getting through to the next round here. Forest are favourites to progress here at 5/4 with BetVictor, while a Burton win is currently priced at 5/2 with Bet365.

Bournemouth vs Norwich

The second game of our round-up is between two clubs that have enjoyed solid starts to their respective seasons, with Bournemouth hosting Norwich in the Carabao Cup. Eddie Howe could hardly have dreamt for a better start to the campaign, with his team currently sitting 6th in the Premier League table and have won four of their last five in all competitions. They will be full of confidence after beating Fulham 3-0 at the weekend and could target the Carabao Cup as a potential chance of silverware. Meanwhile, the Canaries currently find themselves sat 4th in the Championship table and have won each of their last three games in the league. With just one defeat in their last 12 games, Norwich will be no pushovers here and will certainly test the Cherries at the Vitality Stadium. Still, Bournemouth are favourites at 8/13 with Unibet, with Norwich currently being the outsiders at 9/2 with Bet365.

Recommended Bet: Bournemouth to win 3-1 at 12/1 with BetVictor – BET HERE
