On January 25, City Ground (Nottingham) will host the first semi-final match of the EFL Cup, in which Nottingham Forest will compete with Manchester United. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.

Nottingham Forest


The club is remembered, foremost, by two wins in a row in the European Champion Clubs' Cup. The team had to spend the beginning of this century in the Championship; moreover, no one expected any success in the previous season. Nevertheless, Steve Cooper was able to win the play-offs, and “the Foresters” finally appeared in the elite division. Their first steps were more than difficult, and the abundance of newcomers seemed to make the tournament more complicated. Then, the club got used to the Premier League, and in the winter it began to get the points in a pretty active way. The “cup” character has always been typical for the club, moreover, it was lucky with the draw, the last rivals were Blackburn and Wolves; the latter was defeated only on penalties. On the other hand, this time there will be a duel with a real giant, which is in good shape.

Manchester United


The team gained almost maximum momentum in the winter. Obviously, ten Hag needed time to get used to the realities of English football and rebuild the wards in accordance with his style. In the autumn, having bright successes such as the victory in the battle against Arsenal, there were enough failures (as a result, the starting part of the season ended in the 5th place) and even outright scandals (breaking the contract with Ronaldo). At the same time, a powerful performance in December-January helped to gain a foothold in the quartet of the Premier League leaders. Moreover, “the Red Devils” won the derby against Manchester City. To tell the truth, Erik will definitely agree to “decorate” his first year in Foggy Albion with the title. And it is the EFL Cup where the higher mentioned trophy is as close as possible, especially, taking into account the fact that the following opponent is quite go-through.

The statistics of head-to-head matches


In December, the teams finally played an official match – it has been the first one since 1999. Then, Manchester United got a home victory with a 3-0 score.

Predictions
