Sheff Utd VS Nottm Forest

Preview
Sheffield United and Nottingham Forest face at Bramall Lane, in a match for the 38th round of the Championship. In the last league head‑to‑head, played in 30‑09‑2017, Nottingham Forest got a home win by (2‑1). In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis of Sheffield United

The home team is currently in the 7th position of the league, with 59 points won, after 18 wins, 5 draws and 14 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against Ipswich Town, by (0‑0). In the last match, they won in a home match against Burton Albion, by (2‑0). This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses in away matches; against 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses at their stadium. In the last 10 home league matches Sheffield United has a record of 4 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 14 points out of 30 possible. The most recurrent result at half‑time in their home league matches was the 1‑0 (7 out of 18 matches). They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 37 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 16 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Sheffield United comes for this match after a 2-0 win against Burton Albion, returning to triumphs after two straight matches without winning the championship. Of note is that the home team follows very close to the zone that gives access to the play-off promotion. One of Sheffield United's strongest points is in the most offensive sector, especially at home, having scored on average 1.61 goals per match. On an individual level, we highlight the quality of Chris Wilder, being this the best scorer with 15 scored goals. There is no unavailable important players for this reception to Aston Villa.

Confirmed Lineup: J. Blackman, J. O'Connell, G. Baldock, E. Stevens, R. Stearman, L. Evans, J. Fleck, M. Duffy, R. Leonard, B. Sharp, L. Clarke.
Coach: C. Wilder.

Analysis of Nottingham Forest

The away team is currently in the 16th position of the league, with 45 points won, after 13 wins, 6 draws and 18 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against Norwich City, by (0‑0). In the last match, they tied in a home match against Derby County, by (0‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 17 goals scored and 23 conceded; against 7 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses at their stadium, with 19 goals scored and 19 conceded. In the last 10 away league matches Nottingham Forest has a record of 2 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 10 points out of 30 possible. In 37 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 21 times and have only turned the score around in 2.

Nottingham Forest comes for this match after a goalless draw against Derby, adding to their sixth straight match without win. The visiting team has several gaps in the defensive sector, and in addition, the offensive line has acted very irregularly. Yet it’s inevitable to highlight ''marathon runner'' Osborn, who is responsible for making the entire left flank. Offensive midfielder Kieran Dowell is Nottingham Forest's top scorer with 9 scored goals in this championship. It seems that the coach Aitor Karanka won’t count on the injured Ashkan Dejagah.

Confirmed Lineup: C. Pantilimon, Tobias Figueiredo, T. Darikwa, D. Fox, B. Osborn, M. Cash, K. Dowell, J. Colback, B. Watson, B. Brereton, D. Murphy.
Coach: Karanka.

Betting suggestion:

Given what we discussed earlier, the possibility of a match with few goals is very high. By playing at home, Sheffield United must push Nottingham Forest to their midfield, dominating ball possession and creating the best chances for goals. On the other hand, the visiting team should choose only to counterattack, making this match to be very tactical and balanced.
