At the moment, The Blues are in 11th place in the standings and have no chance of playing in the UEFA Champions League next season. With 42 points, Chelsea has also officially avoided relegation, so they have no specific goal in the upcoming match against Nottingham.
On the other side of the pitch, Nottingham Forest just defeated Southampton at home to regain 16th place with 33 points, only three points ahead of the relegation zone. Nottingham is showing signs of optimism with two wins in their last three matches in the Premier League. At this point, the remaining matches of the season are considered to be crucial for them.
Chelsea has won all six of their recent home matches against Nottingham Forest, including five in cup competitions. Of course, with the home advantage and superior strength, Chelsea is still considered the favorite compared to their opponents. However, Chelsea's current form is very poor, and they no longer have any motivation to play, so it would not be surprising if the home team dropped points in this match.

Asian handicap (0:1): The initial Asian handicap for this match was set at the home team's handicap of -1 1/4, but shortly before kick-off, the handicap was lowered to (0:1). This is seen as a positive sign for Nottingham. At the moment, Chelsea is not a very trustworthy team as they have lost in nine out of their last ten matches. Prediction: Nottingham.
Over/under (2 1/2): The last three meetings between Chelsea and Nottingham had under 2 1/2 goals. In the last nine matches, only six of Chelsea's games had more than two goals. As the underdog, Nottingham is unlikely to take any risks and push the tempo of the match as they play away, so this could be a cautious game from both sides. With such statistical data, the likelihood of few goals being scored is very high. Prediction: Under.
