Both Forest and United lost this weekend; the difference is that everyone expected to see Nottingham losing in Birmingham to Aston Villa, while United stood as a massive favorite against Fulham. However, the Ted Devils managed to disappoint once again.

Before Betting on Nottingham Forest vs. Manchester United

So yes, Forest did lose to Aston Villa 4-2, but that was OK, given the fact that the game opened terribly for the team from City Ground, who was down 3-0 at halftime. In one moment, they managed to cut the deficit to only one goal, but the hosts responded, returning everything back to normal. 

This was the eighth meeting in the last 11. Forest played with over 2.5 hits and the ninth with both teams netting. The gang from Nottingham likes to play offensive football, which is why their defense often crashes. That’s even more obvious at home, where they try to be offensive-minded regardles of the rivals’ name and status. 

There’s nothing new at Old Trafford because United disappointed again, just when everyone started thinking this team might have a chance to save the season. Following five wins in a row, and seven matches in which this unit didn’t lose, the Red Devils suffered a defeat at home to Fulham, 1-2. 

To make it more painful, United was down, then came back and had the initiative in the finish but allowed a goal in the stoppage time, breaking the hearts of their fans who were hoping to see a complete flip. Again, all the eyes are pointed towards Erik Ten Hag, who didn’t have the solution on how to finish the dazzled Cottagers, yet instead allowed them to recover and fight back.
