Forest vs Sheffield United Betting Tips
- Our Tip – Forest to Win @ 5/4 on 888Sport
What a prospect we have on our hands for the second leg.
Nottingham Forest prevailed with a spectacular victory away at Bramall Lane last weekend, and take 2-1 lead back to the City Ground.
Sander Berge’s last minute header for Sheffield has totally transformed the complexion of this second leg given Forest dominated for the majority of the first, and will feel two goals wasn’t a fair reflection of how many chances they had.
Regardless, they take a lead back to home soil where they have only lost once in 2022, with that defeat coming against Liverpool in the FA Cup.
Forest vs Sheffield United Predictions
- Our Prediction – 2-1 Forest @ 8/1 on 888Sport
Our prediction for this one is a 2-1 win for Nottingham.
While Sheffield United present a formidable opponent, Forest look destined for a return to the top-flight since 1999, and were unlucky not to secure automatic promotion.
As it stands, their home winning streak stands at seven matches, scoring a total of 22 goals in the process, and this highlights the monumental task ahead for the Blades who still have to try and overturn a deficit away from home.
