Norwich Preview – Can Canaries land the win?

It has been one point collected from their two league fixtures so far for Norwich in their Championship campaign.

Norwich have not had a taste of a winning feeling yet this season.

In their one home fixture so far, they played out a 1-1 draw with Wigan in the league.

After taking a drop from the Premier League at the end of last season, it will have been a frustrating start for them.

In the match outright, Norwich are the 7/10 favourites* (odds recorded 23:39 GMT August 7th, 2022 at Betfair).

In last season’s EFL Cup, Norwich posted a 6-0 victory over Bournemouth in their opener.

They then crashed out 3-0 against Liverpool.

This is the first meeting between the two clubs since February last year.

Norwich took a 3-1 win at Birmingham in a Championship fixture.

That extended their winning streak over the Blues to three.

The Canaries are undefeated in their last seven fixtures against Birmgah.

They banked a clean sheet in three of those.


Birmingham Preview – Blues with a trick tie

Birmingham have remained unbeaten in their two Championship matches this season.

They opened with a 0-0 draw at Luton.

On the weekend they banked a good home win over Huddersfield.

In the match outright, Birmingham are heavy 17/4 underdogs* (odds recorded 23:39 GMT August 7th, 2022 at Betfair).

This doesn’t look like the easier of ties in the EFL Cup for them.

Last season the Blues had some massive struggles on the road.

Birmingham won only four away games all season across all competitions last term.
