EFL Cup Predictions > Jan 24th & 25th

Recommended Posts


The EFL Cup Semi-Final first legs are coming up this week. It's an interesting line-up with Southampton taking on Newcastle and Nottingham Forest versus Manchester United. It's hard to not think that we'll see a Newcastle playing Manchester United final but football is full of surprises. Who are you backing to win these first legs?

I am half tempted to back a double correct score of 1-0 for the away sides at 45/1 with Bet365!

Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United

Nottingham Forest will play in this game coming off the back of a 1-1 Premier League tied result vs Bournemouth. It was their fourth straight game without losing in the English top flight, and avoiding relegation now seems more realistic. Nottingham Forest hasn't had any problems with scoring, netting in one hundred percent of their last six matches. They have hit an aggregate of 7 during that period while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 7. Such a trend isn't guaranteed to be carried forward into this match. Cheikhou Kouyaté (Hamstring Injury), Jesse Lingard (Hamstring Injury), Dean Henderson (Thigh Problems), Omar Richards (Fractured Leg), and Giulian Biancone (Knee Injury) will not be taking part for Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper.

After a loss in their previous game against Arsenal in the Premier League competition, Manchester United and their fans will hope to get a better result this time. Although the Red Devils stayed in the top-four zone, they are now 11 points behind the top-placed Gunners. Proving their predisposition for action-packed matches, the back of the net has been hit 20 times in the previous six games in which Manchester United has taken to the field, giving a mean average of 3.33 goals each clash. Opposition teams have got 6 of this total. Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has some current player fitness concerns. Axel Tuanzebe (Unknown Injury) and Donny van de Beek (Knee Injury) are names that won't be on the team sheet.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction                                                                            

Both teams have enjoyed good form recently, and they will try to secure a positive result in the first leg of this tie. However, we believe the visitors are closer to a victory, and they should ensure the advantage before the match in front of their fans.

Goals Market Prediction

Their recent games have been pretty efficient and entertaining, and we expect that trend to continue. Therefore, the crowd should enjoy at least three goals in total.

Manchester United to Win @ 1.72

Over 2.5 FT @ 1.95

Correct score 1:3 @ 13.50
