Nottingham Forest x Manchester United

The hosts, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the defeat to Villa, but given their attacking potential in front of home fans, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Defender Andrew Omobamidele is pushing for a start, while all Willy Boly, Ibrahim Sangare, Ola Aina, and Chris Wood are out of contention with injuries for the home side.

Wednesday’s FA Cup at the City Ground pits together Nottingham Forest and Manchester United, the two teams who were beaten by Aston Villa and Fulham respectively at the weekend. The Red Devils are hungry for revenge as they were outplayed by the Reds in their last meeting in the Premier League. Midfielder Casemiro is a major doubt after limping off with injury in the last league match, while Christian Eriksen should be recalled to the starting XI.

Outright Betting

Nottingham Forest have already beaten Manchester United at the City Ground this season but the same outcome here is as big as 12/5 on William Hill.

Manchester United are 21/20 favourites on 55BMW to prevail inside regulation time while the 90 minute draw that would take the tie to extra-time and potential penalties pays 5/2 (WJcasino).

Betting Angles

With neither team holding much appeal in the outright betting here, I’ll put together another Bet Builder and back Manchester United to Score and Diogo Dalot to commit a foul at 4/5 on 55BMW casino.

Whilst Man United’s setback against Fulham on Saturday pretty much typified their season so far, they should be able to land at least one blow against a fragile Nottingham Forest side on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils have scored a minimum of one goal in each of their last 10 matches across all competitions, one of which was against Forest at this venue at the tail end of 2023.

Recent Meetings

We’ve seen three or more goals in nine of the previous eleven head-to-head encounters between Nottingham Forest and Manchester United.

Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United Prediction

Nottingham Forest may have struggled for consistency in terms of results but they have at least been bagging goals for fun in recent weeks. The Reds notched at least two goals in three subsequent outings in the Premier League. The run includes a 2-4 defeat at Villa Park four days ago. Nottingham Forest also bagged two goals in the previous home clash against Manchester United played exactly two months ago. Manchester United looked dreadful defensively on Saturday against Fulham. Each of the last seven outings Erik ten Hag’s men played across competitions provided three or more goals. The Over 2.5 goals FT pick is our main betting prediction here and you can back it at the 1.72 odds.

You can get the same odds for the home win or draw double chance pick. Manchester United looked toothless in the final third four days ago against Fulham. The main reason was the absence of Rasmus Hojlund. The Danish forward has just caught the perfect run of form before suffering an injury on training ground. Hojlund will not be able to feature on Wednesday. Without him in the starting XI, we just can’t see United as the favourites for the win at The City Ground.
