FA Cup Round of 16 clash between Forest and United guarantees excitement. Why do we think so? Both teams are playing interesting and efficient football, involving plenty of goals along the way.

Nottingham Forest vs. Manchester United Prediction

Nottingham Forest

Forest oscillates a lot these days, and their results are extremely mixed. Over the past ten games, we’ve seen them triumph on four occasions, post three ties and the same number of draws. The majority of their success came in the FA Cup, but the recent win over West Ham in the Premiership surely pumped their confidence ahead of this event. 

The efficiency of their matches is high, and seven of the last ten were with three or more goals. Meanwhile, eight of them throughout this span have seen hits on both ends, which gives you a clear picture of Forest’s style of play.

It’s the same at City Ground, where pretty much every game is either with both teams netting or over 2.5 goals. Nottingham tries to attack every rival, no matter his name. 

Manchester United 

The Red Devils are on the rise, and that’s a refreshment after a year of agonizing results. Five wins in a row and seven without a loss are something we haven’t seen in a while in United’s results column. 

Manchester’s games are equally efficient as Nottingham’s, if not even better in that aspect. Eight of the most recent ten saw over 2.5 goals, while seven ended with both teams netting.

In the last few weeks, United’s attack has been flourishing, netting twice in each of the past seven games while looking exceptionally lethal and diversified. The positive thing is that the Red Devils look like they have enormous room for improvement.

Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United Prediction

There were two meetings between these two units this year. The first was at Old Trafford, 3-2 for United, who came back following a deficit. However, they couldn’t avoid a defeat in the second meeting, when Forest won at City Ground, 2-1. 

Nottingham Forest vs. Manchester United Prediction

Nottingham is aggressive and very cocky at home, always trying to impose its own style of play. On the other side, United doesn’t mind about the venue, having the same balanced approach everywhere. Given the number of goals their respective games provided, anything but three or more hits in this one would be a surprise. 

Our verdict: Over 2.5 goals
