Betting tips Huddersfield vs Nottingham Forest

Billed as the richest rewarding match in world football, worth up to 100 million for the winner, both clubs come into this massive fixture desperate for a return to the Premier League promised land.

Forest, absent from the top flight for over 20 years have surprised many with their form under former Swansea boss Steve Cooper, finishing 4th in the division with 80 points and they enter this contest in great form, losing just 2 of their last 19 in the Championship.

Huddersfield, looking for a return to the PL for the first time since 2019 come into the final unbeaten in their last 9 league outings with 7 wins and 2 draws achieved during that period. 

Recent meetings between these sides have been evenly balanced with both sides winning 3 of their last 6 contests and picking a winner here looks a pretty tough challenge although the bookies do have Forest as solid 1.57 favourites to lift the trophy and 2.15 to win in 90 minutes. 

Ultimately, we expect a tight contest with goals likely at a premium - indeed 6 of the last 8 Championship finals have seen under 2.5 goals scored while each of the last 4 league meetings between these sides also saw that outcome. 

Given their status as favourites, Forest should be expected to have the quality to get the job done but we expect a tight, tense and likely nervous occasion at Wembley so the under 2.5 goal pick looks a decent choice here and with none of the last 10 meetings between these sides finishing level, we expect a final outcome to be decided within 90 minutes.
