Norwich City Prediction

Norwich City will head into this Friday night clash with Swansea City looking to record a fourth straight win in the Championship following recent wins against Bolton Wanderers 4-0, Bristol City 3-2 and Millwall 3-1 which has helped lift The Canaries up into top spot in the second tier ahead of this weekend’s action.

The hosts will no doubt be keen top open up a five point cushion at the top though with a win over Swansea in this encounter which would be the biggest margin at the top of the division for some time and would place Norwich City another step closer to automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Overall, Norwich have chalked up five wins from their last six matches overall while at Carrow Road the hosts possess a decent home record of 11-2-4 37/27 which includes winning three of their last four on home turf.

Wins over Birmingham City, Ipswich Town and Bristol City have further bolstered their home record as too have the goalscoring exploits of leading goalscorer Pukki who has plundered a total of 24 goals in the Championship so far this term.

 

Key-Facts – Norwich City v Swansea City

  • Norwich City have won 5 of their last 6 matches in the Championship
  • Norwich have scored 2 or more goals in 12 of their 17 home matches to date
  • Swansea City have lost their last 3 away matches on the trot

 

Swansea City Prediction

Swansea City sit just below mid-table in the Championship and this looks just about right for Graham Potter’s men at the moment as they’ve captured a total of 13 league wins so far this season, with 8 of these 13 being achieved at their Liberty Stadium while results away from home have been less convincing.

The recent trend of results seem to underline Swansea’s current situation too as The Swans have recorded home wins against 3rd placed Sheffield United, Millwall and Bolton Wanderers, but have lost their last three away matches on the trot with losses incurred at Bristol City, Leeds United and a resurgent Sheffield Wednesday outfit.

An away record of 5-4-8 19/22 includes just one win from their last six matches on their travels which was an emphatic 4-1 win at Reading, but otherwise the visitors have struggled for any sort of consistency on the road throughout this campaign.

Betting Tips Verdict

Norwich City recorded an emphatic 4-1 win away at Swansea City earlier in the season and with the incentive of pulling away from their closest rivals, Leeds United, with a win here, I’m expecting a comfortable win for the hosts in this one.
