Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United Bet Builder Tips: Wednesday, January 25th

The League Cup semi-final first legs take place this week and we have Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United bet builder tips ahead of what promises to be an interesting tie. United are without a win in their last two matches. They will want to bounce back here.

Forest’s only defeat in their last six matches came against Blackpool in the FA Cup. They will want to make up for that cup disappointment by making it to Wembley in February.

Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United Preview

England, League Cup, Wednesday, January 25th, 20:00 (UK)

Manchester United are chasing their first piece of silverware since Jose Mourinho was at the club. The progress at the club has been clear in Ten Hag’s early tenure but the long-term expectations at the club remain lofty.

Arsenal narrowly beat United in their last game. A hectic schedule for Ten Hag’s side has left them looking tired in the latter stages of matches. The visitors will look to take advantage of any fatigue when these teams meet on Wednesday.

Nottingham Forest have improved significantly as the season has gone on. They looked destined for the drop in the early part of the season. Steve Cooper’s side are now up to 13th in the table, six points above the relegation zone. However, getting a good result to take to Old Trafford in the second leg will be at the forefront of the player’s minds this week.

United were comfortable 3-0 victors when these teams met just after Christmas. Cooper’s side will be confident of putting up a better fight with the backing of the home crowd. Forest are unbeaten in their last eight home matches in all competitions. It should be a special night at the City Ground.
