Norwich City Prediction – Can Norwich grab lifeline?

Norwich City were handed a fifth defeat in six matches last weekend when they suffered a 2-0 defeat away at Brighton and The Canaries now find themselves second from bottom in the Premier League and 4 points adrift of Everton and safety prior to this crucial Friday night clash with fellow strugglers, Watford.

Recent defeats to Burnley, Crystal Palace, Aston Villa, Manchester United and the aforementioned Brighton have landed Norwich in serious trouble near the foot of the Premier League, but home advantage could hand the east anglian outfit a valuable lifeline in this encounter.

Norwich have earned just 1 point from the last possible 18 on offer which was thanks to a 0-0 draw away at Bournemouth, but the hosts’ 2 wins to date in their return to the top flight were both registered at Carrow Road in victories over Newcastle United 3-1 and a shock 3-2 win over Manchester City.

Goals have been the feature of Norwich’s season so far this season, especially at Carrow Road where 24 goals have been scored to date, and incidentally, Norwich’s last home match before they were relegated in their last season in the top flight was a 4-2 victory over Watford.

Watford Prediction – Can Watford finally get off the mark?

As mentioned earlier, Watford sit bottom of the Premier League and The Hornets have gained just a meagre 5 points to their name so far in what has been a miserable season for the London club which has already cost the job of former manager, Javi Gracia, as the visitors look for the missing ingredient under the returning Quique Sanchez Flores.

Watford are still looking for their first league win of the season having drawn 5 and lost 6 of their total of 11 matches played so far this term, while their away record reads a poor looking 0-2-3 2/13 which includes a heavy 8-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City.

Indeed, results away from home for Watford have been largely disappointing for some time as The Hornets have collected just 4 away wins out of their last 20 matches on the road in the top flight, and they suffered defeat in their last visit to Carrow Road 3 seasons ago.


Key-Facts – Norwich City vs Watford

  • Both of Norwich’s Premier League wins have been registered at Carrow Road
  • Watford have won just 4 of their last 20 away matches in the Premier League
  • Norwich City won the last meeting at home against Watford 4-2 in the EPL


Betting Tips Verdict

Norwich with home advantage at Carrow Road gives the hosts a decent chance of walking away with the points here.
