Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Nottingham Forest vs Sheffield United

Nottingham Forest took a massive step towards the final of the promotion playoffs after beating Sheffield United 2-1 in the first leg in Sheffield. According to the bookies, Forest are the favorites to qualify for the final with odds of 1.18 at Vbet.

Forest took a 2-0 lead in the first leg and looked certain to end the tie in Sheffield. However, Steve Cooper’s team couldn’t sustain Sheffield’s pressure and conceded an injury time goal. Surely, Forest still have some fighting to do in the return leg and must try to maintain their home record of going nine matches unbeaten at the City Ground.

On the other side, Sheffield United couldn’t take advantage of playing at home and have a lot of work to do in the second leg. To point out, an early goal changed coach Paul Heckingbottom’s strategy and pushed his team into attack looking for the equalizer. As a result, the Blades conceded a second goal after committing in attack to find the equalizer.

Nonetheless, a late strike by Berge gave some hope for Sheffield United but they have to put on a super performance. Looking at the Blades’ away form we can see that they won just one of their last three away fixtures during which they scored in two matches with two goals in each of them.

Nottingham Forest vs Sheffield United Prediction

In a crucial match like this one, tensions will be high and we might see the same scenario of the first leg with Sheffield attacking and Forest trying to hit on the break. For that, we prefer to pick a double chance of home win or draw and under 3.5 goals.
