Nottingham Forest's journey through this season has been fraught with tension and the looming threat of relegation. However, with just two matches left to play, Nuno Espirito Santo's squad finds themselves on the brink of securing their Premier League status with just one more win. Nottingham Forest didn't play well recently, but Espirito Santo's team won 3-1 in the last round on the road against Sheffield United and made a huge step forward. That victory wasn't easy either as the home side had xG of 2.26, while guests had only 1.49, but Nottingham Forest still took all three points. 

Most of Chelsea's season was disappointing. Still, after losing only two games in the last 13 matches in all competitions, Chelsea came close to the places that could give them at least a place in the Conference League. Last weekend, Pochettino's team won 5-0 at home against West Ham. The home side tallied xG of 4.31, while guests had only 0.93, so it is no wonder Chelsea secured another win. A victory like that will give an additional boost of confidence for the final two Premier League rounds. 

Nottingham Forest vs Chelsea pick: Over 2.5 goals

Nottingham Forest went over 3.5 goals in four of the last six matches. On the other hand, Chelsea went over 3.5 goals in three of the previous four games. Over 3.5 goals should be the best bet for this tie.
