Nottingham Forest will take on Watford in the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that FA Cup tie between Nottingham Forest and Watford will end in a draw.

Championship side Forest will take on Premier League outfit Watford in the fourth round of the prestigious cup competition at the City Ground on Saturday afternoon.

Owen believes that the game will end in a 1-1 draw and the tie will go into a replay.

“Forest are in cracking form of late and they’ll give the PL outfit plenty of problems at the City Ground, but I think a draw is the most likely outcome and a replay back at Vicarage Road,” the former Newcastle United striker has predicted on Betvictor.com.

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Game to finish 1-1 at 6/1.”

Forest will head into the game against Watford on the back of a goalless draw with Queens Park Rangers at the City Ground in the Championship.

The Reds have a good record at home this season, and Dougie Freedman’s side will feel confident of getting the better of the Hornets.

Watford returned to winning ways last weekend when they got the better of Newcastle United 2-1 at Vicarage Road in the Premier League.

Quique Sanchez Flores’s side will fancy their chances of winning against Forest, but one suspects that they will not be too disappointed if the game on Saturday afternoon ends in a draw.
