A legendary team is about to come back to the Premier League
Nottingham Forest is one game away
Many top teams have never been able to win the UEFA Champions League, including Arsenal, Manchester City, PSG, Tottenham, Roma, Lyon, and Atletico de Madrid, among others. However, this English club has 2 trophies from the top continental competition.
Unfortunately, for 23 years they have been in the second division of England, waiting to return to the Premier League. And this Sunday, the legend can return... On Sunday, May 29, Nottingham Forest will face Huddersfield Town in the promotion final.
After several seasons without fighting for the top spot, finally, the team led by Steve Cooper managed to obtain 4th place, thanks to 80 points in 46 games (23 wins, 11 draws, and 12 losses). This allowed him to play in the playoffs to achieve the long-awaited promotion. Last week, they played the semi-finals against Sheffield United, the 5th place in the table. In the first match, they managed to get a great 2-1 away win with goals from Colback and Johnson. The bad thing was the opponent's goal towards the end of the match. 3 days later, both clubs met at the City Ground. The Reds started out winning with another Johnson goal, but the visitors turned the game around and forced a penalty shootout. There, the Congolese goalkeeper Brice Samba stopped 3 penalties and gave his team the victory.
Now, after 23 years of waiting, the team with 11 titles (3 international) has the chance to return to the best league in the world, the Premier League. They will face Huddersfield Town, the team that finished in third place and who previously beat Luton Town. Will those magical nights of Nottingham Forest return? We will find out this Sunday.
