Daniel Farke’s Norwich City welcome Aitor Karanka’s Birmingham City to Carrow Road this Tuesday night for an EFL Championship fixture. The Canaries have made a slow start, but they did manage to prevail on the road last time out. As for the Blues, they have picked up just three points from their last four matches. Will Norwich win at home for the first time since February?

Norwich City Preview – Canaries to finally win at home

Having been relegated from the Premier League by finishing rock bottom, Norwich City have lost that winning feeling. In fact, they have not won at Carrow Road since beating Leicester City in top-flight action way back in February.

After kicking off their league season with a 1-0 win over Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium, Daniel Farke’s men went on to take just one point from a possible nine, drawing with Preston North End and losing back-to-back games to Bournemouth and Derby County.

Our betting prediction:
Norwich to win -1

However, City struck back with a crucial victory at the New York Stadium last Saturday. Jordan Hugill’s penalty in injury time gave Norwich a 2-1 win over Paul Warne’s Rotherham United.

Can the Canaries follow up that dramatic victory with another three points on Tuesday? The bookies have the hosts priced at just 4/5 to get the win.

Birmingham City Preview – Blues to suffer back-to-back defeats?

Birmingham City are arguably one of the most unpredictable teams in the Championship these days. Despite picking up only six points from 15, the Blues lost for the first time in the league this season last weekend.

It was a tough day at the office for Karanka and his men, as they were beaten 1-0 by Garry Monk’s Sheffield Wednesday at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium. A Barry Bannan penalty in the 49th minute did the damage for the Owls.

Despite last weekend’s reverse, Birmingham have been hard to beat and tough to play against since Karanka – who took Middlesbrough to the Premier League – arrived in the Midlands. The Blues would no doubt take a draw now if offered.


Norwich City vs Birmingham City Betting Advice

On their way to promotion from the 2018-19 Championship, Norwich picked up four points from the two league meetings. The teams drew 2-2 at St Andrew’s in August 2018, while goals from Teemu Pukki, Mario Vrancic and Tom Trybull gave the Canaries a 3-1 win when they squared off at Carrow Road.


Key Facts – Norwich City vs Birmingham City Betting Tip

  • Norwich have won four and drawn one of their last five against Birmingham
  • The Blues have beaten the Canaries on just one occasion since 2005
  • Norwich have taken seven points from a possible 12, while Birmingham have just six points to their name so far


Birmingham will be licking their wounds after suffering their first league loss under Karanka, while Norwich will still be buzzing from their last-gasp victory over Rotherham.

The Canaries have been poor at Carrow Road over the last 18 months or so, but we fancy them to be too strong for Birmingham in midweek. Check out the tempting price of 15/8 for the hosts to be winning at half time and full time.

After scoring his first goal for Norwich in dramatic fashion last weekend, we fancy Hugill to net again in this one. Back the big striker to open the scoring at 5/1.
