We will be backing Huddersfield in this match. The Terriers are in great form and have looked more interesting than Nottingham Forest in the final games of the season. Moreover, the Tricky Trees didn't score in most head-to-head games.
Our prediction - Huddersfield to go through
We don't think this will be a high-scoring game. They stakes are too high, and the two sides will be very careful on defense. One, maybe two goals will probably decide the outcome of this game. Take the under.
Second bet - total under 2.5 goals
