One more victory will take Norwich City back to the Premier League at the first time of asking. This Saturday night, the EFL Championship leaders welcome in-form Bournemouth to Carrow Road for a mouth-watering fixture. The Cherries are flying under Jonathan Woodgate, but Daniel Farke’s Canaries are the clear favourites. Will Norwich be celebrating promotion come 10pm on Saturday night?

Norwich City Preview – Can the Canaries seal promotion?

Daniel Farke’s Norwich City have been the real deal in the Championship this term. Many tipped them for an instant return, but nobody could have envisaged just how dominant the Canaries would turn out to be this season.

Norwich’s 1-0 win at Derby County last time out was the club’s 27th league victory of the season, putting them on to 90 points. With five games to go, City look a good bet to reach 100+ points.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1545 GMT, Tuesday 2 March)

Last time out at home, Farke’s men walloped Huddersfield Town 7-0, which was their biggest win of the season. Only Watford have picked up more home points than Norwich, while just Derby have won on their patch this term.

Norwich will want to get promotion all sewn up as quickly as possible, but the job is all but done. The home win on Saturday is priced at 10/11.

Bournemouth Preview – Cherries to maintain unbeaten run?

Bournemouth were in danger of missing out on the play-offs altogether when they lost four in a row at the start of the year. However, the Cherries have got their act together since Jonathan Woodgate took charge, with the club now five points clear of seventh.

Since a 3-2 home loss to Barnsley on 13th March, Bournemouth have gone on to secure successive victories over Swansea City, Middlesbrough, Blackburn Rovers, Coventry City and Huddersfield to fire themselves back into the top six.

Norwich City vs Bournemouth Betting Advice

Norwich have not lost many this season, but they did fall to a narrow defeat at the Vitality Stadium back in September. Arnaut Groeneveld was the Cherries hero, netting the only goal of the game with ten minutes left of the first half. In the Premier League last term, Bournemouth failed to score a goal against Norwich as the Canaries took four points.


Key Facts – Norwich City vs Bournemouth Betting Tip

  • Norwich have been beaten at Carrow Road just once this season
  • Bournemouth have won five in a row
  • Since a draw with Preston, Norwich have won two out of two, scoring eight goals along the way


Norwich are unbeaten since a 2-0 defeat to Swansea back in early February, winning 11 and drawing two of the following 13. The leaders will want all three points on home soil as they close in on the title, but we fancy in-form Bournemouth to hold them to a draw. You can get the draw and both teams to score at 7/2.

Teemu Pukki has come to life since February, scoring a staggering 17 goals in his last 16 games for club and country. Only Brentford’s Ivan Toney has netted more Championship goals so far. Back Pukki to open the scoring here at 11/4.
