Top Cambridge United vs Forest Green Betting Tips & Suggestions

Sunday’s brawl between Cambridge United and the Green is going to be held at Abbey Stadium. While the visitors are a lost cause, the U’s still have a shot at salvation. Stay tuned to find out if that will be the case in our Cambridge United vs Forest Green predictions below. If you wish to get our best football tips for today, click on the link provided.

Cambridge United/Cambridge United

First things first, you should know the visitors are at the bottom of the table and will spend the 2023/24 campaign trying to climb back to League One. Our Cambridge United vs Forest Green predictions are boosted by the fact that the home team still holds a chance to survive in League One.

To do so, coach Mark Bonner’s boys will have to go all-out against the Green on Sunday. A victory is an absolute must if Cambridge United don’t want to get relegated.

Under 0.5 Forest Green Goals

The Green’s 2022/23 display showed the team isn’t ready for higher-tier football. That’s why coach Duncan Ferguson’s boys’ morale is probably at an all-time low. With barely 31 goals scored in 45 official League One games, it’s unrealistic to expect the Green to score even once at Abbey Stadium on the 7th of May.

There’s no other team with an attacking tally as poor as Forest Green’s and we’re convinced that our Cambridge United vs Forest Green predictions will succeed. Especially, when you consider the fact that coach Mark Bonner doesn’t have any injured or suspended defensive players.

Cambridge United vs Forest Green Lineups & Team News

Cambridge United

Surprisingly, Sam Smith wasn’t the big hero for Cambridge United on the 29th of April. It was a combined effort by Harrison Dunk and George Thomas. These players scored the two goals that proved enough for the U’s to get a thrifty 1-2 win over old rival Accrington Stanley. If coach Mark Bonner’s boys contain the fire inside of them, we just might see our Cambridge United vs Forest Green predictions succeed.

Predicted lineup – Mitov (GK), Dunk, Morrison, R. Bennett, L. Bennett, McGrandles, Digby, Lankester, Brophy, Knibbs & Smith

Forest Green

Lined up in a 4-4-2 formation, the Green couldn’t do much versus Oxford United last week. The clash at the New Lawn Stadium ended with a disappointing 0-3 loss for Forest Green but what’s more concerning is the way the Green’s players conducted themselves. With barely one shot on target, Forest Green’s issues are as jarringly obvious as a bucket on the head.

Predicted lineup – Doohan (GK), Godwin-Malife, Casey, Cooper, Robson, O’Keefe, Bunker, McGeouch, Omotoye, Savage & Peart-Harris

Starting Lineups

*Starting lineups are usually announced 1hr before the kick-off

Player to Watch: Sam Smith

With 12 goals to his name in the 2022/23 League One campaign, Sam Smith is without a question the U’s most important player. His one-of-a-kind goalscoring skill proved decisive on numerous occasions this season and we believe with him in the starting XI, coach Mark Bonner can’t make a mistake on Sunday.

Our Cambridge United vs Forest Green predictions are largely based on Smith’s display versus the Green. We are fully aware of his terrific skill and Forest Green’s lack of security at the back. All the foundation stones for a solid Sam Smith performance are surely there.
