Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been more than 2.5 goals only once in the last five games involving Leeds United. Bielsa’s team look offensively great once again after the return of players like Kemar Roofe, but they were not clinical in the victory over Ipswich. Nottingham Forest have come up with seven goals in the last three away matches, but our total goals prediction would still go with a game that has less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Kemar Roofe came up with his first goal in almost two months of action after scoring the opener against Ipswich Town. The 25-year-old was once again back in a central position where he was extremely effective. Our first goalscorer prediction will back Roofe, despite possessing just one goal in four games against Nottingham Forest.
