Man United vs Nottingham Forest – Betting Preview
When they play Nottingham Forest in the second leg of their semi-final match on Wednesday, Manchester United will be seeking to seal the deal and secure their spot in the Carabao Cup final.
The Red Devils thrashed the Tricky Trees 3-0 in the first leg at the City Ground thanks to goals from the in-form Marcus Rashford, the winter acquisition Wout Weghorst, and captain Bruno Fernandes!
Man United Preview
Man United have been nothing less than brilliant in each of their remaining 10 post-World Cup games, with the exception of a 3-2 loss against Premier League leaders Arsenal last week (W9, D1).
As seen by their impressive streak of 11 straight home victories in all competitions, nine of which came by multiple goal margins, they appear much more fearsome when playing at Old Trafford.
Given that Man Utd has lost the final on all three prior instances when they have won both Carabao Cup semi-final legs, so, defeating Forest for the third time this season may not necessarily be a good sign for Man Utd!
Nottingham Forest Preview
The fact that Forest has only won one of their previous five games across all competitions (D2, L2) and that their two losses during this stretch were by a combined score of three goals highlights their propensity to give up.
It’s interesting to note that none of Tricky Trees’ previous 16 away Carabao Cup games have ended in a tie.
Given that his team has lost their last five trips to Old Trafford by an average score of 17-2, Cooper’s team is unlikely to break that streak, which is unfortunate for him!
1×2 Betting Preview
On Wednesday, Manchester United has a chance to make history by defeating the same opponent by three goals or more for the first time ever.
If the recent H2H history is any indication, the Old Trafford audience may be treated to another exciting performance.
Man United to win stands @ 1.46.
Forest has only 2 wins in their last 5 matches and being already 3 goals down in the tie, they really don’t stand much of a chance! Their odds of winning here stands @ 8.70.
The possibility of a draw, which will see United go through, stands @ 4.95.
Total goals over/under
The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 1.85.
While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 2.16.
United were dominant when the two teams met last week and with home advantage on their side, this could be another big victory!
Expect over 2.5 goals in this one, as even the market has the same thing to say!
