Sheffield United hosts Nottingham Forest in round 36 of the English Championship. The match will be played on Friday, March 4th at Bramall Lane (Sheffield)
Sheffield United had several excellent seasons under the management of Chris Wilder. At first, the Blades were unexpectedly promoted to the Premier League and even managed to confidently gain a foothold there. But then the attitude of the opponents became more serious, and the manager trivially ran out of ideas. As a result, the team was relegated to the Championship (after the dismissal of the manager). Of course, the Blades hoped to return to the elite from the very outset. But Slavisa Jokanovic did not live up to hopes. Only Paul Heckingbottom managed to improve the game of Sheffield United, and the team got closer to the top six. But the last round brought an unexpected defeat from the modest Millwall (1-0).

Nottingham Forest successfully performs in the cup format. The Tricky Trees managed to eliminate Brentford from the League Cup in the fall, although then they lost to Wolverhampton at home (0-4). But more sensations were made in the FA Cup. Nottingham Forest consistently knocked out Arsenal and Leicester, and next week it will face Huddersfield. At the same time, the Reds managed to demonstrate quite good statistics in the Championship. After the victory over Blackburn, there were only draws against Stoke City and Preston. But having beaten Bristol City a week ago, Nottingham Forest again got close to the playoff zone. Luton Town, which is in 6th position, is only three points ahead.
In the 2018/2019 season, when the clubs played for the last time in the same division, they exchanged victories. Another head-to-head match was played only in November last year, and then everything ended in a 1-1 draw. Both clubs want to compete for promotion to the Premier League, so they will probably play to win. We recommend betting on Over 2.0 goals scored.
