After reaching the Top 4 in the Carabao Cup, Nottingham Forest should feel great about themselves. It is fair to say that even their most loyal fans didn’t expect the Tricky Trees team to make it this far. It is not clear if they will go further.
However, the oddsmakers aren’t so sure. They consider Manchester United to be a big favorite to win this match and to also win the trophy at Wembley.

Nottingham Searching for their 1 win over Man United in 28+ years
December 17, 1994 was the last day Nottingham Forest beat Manchester United. The truth is that they haven’t seen each other in a long time. They have only played one competitive game in the 21 century.
It was in December’s Premier League when the Red Devils won 3-0 at Old Trafford. However, this game is being played on Nottingham’s soil, but what does it mean?
This could be because Nottingham players are more likely to attend City Ground games. They haven’t lost at home since September 2022. They have yet to receive a stronger opponent than Man United.
Manchester United Craving Silverware
It has been almost six years since Manchester United last won a trophy. The Red Devils will still be competing for several titles in 2023. However, the Carabao Cup seems to be the most easy to win.
They are the most likely to win the trophy and that’s not because they’re in great shape right now. They are also stronger than the three other teams, Southampton, Newcastle, and Nottingham.
It’s almost certain that Erik Ten Haag’s Team will win the Carabao Cup semifinal. They wouldn’t need to worry about what would happen in the rematch one day later.
They want to win Wednesday because they want to get back on track. Last Sunday, Arsenal defeated them 3-2 to end their 10-game unbeaten streak in all competitions.
Prediction: Manchester United vs Nottingham Forest
Last time they played in Nottingham, the visitors won 8-1. However, it was 1999, a long time ago. We don’t think this will be the case, but Man United should win again.
