xG Arsenal vs Nottingham Forest Attendance 59,984 2023-24 | Expected Goals AFC 2-1 NFFC Match Stats

By Soccer Blog | Aug 13, 2023

Here is a look at the xG (expected goals) stats from Arsenal vs Nottingham Forest. It was always going to be a tough ask for Forest given their woeful away form in the league last season and the Gunners’ own fantastic opening day record.

It eventually finished 2-1 to the Gunners. They were dominant in the first half (in the 24th minute, Arsenal had 180 passes to Forest’s 13)and a lovely assist from Gabriel Martinelli set up Nketiah for the opening goal. Jurrien Timber started at LB, but was injured just after half time. Thomas Partey started at RB. Forest grew into the game in the final quarter and eventually pulled one back through Awoniyi.

Although they wouldn’t reflect very highly on xG, Forest also had decent opportunities through Brennan Johnson in the 11th minute (rushed into his shot because Ramsdale advanced and closed down space) and Willy Boly in the 78th minute.
