Norwich News and Form

The Canaries have won their last three league games, their most recent being last weekend over Millwall. Norwich have won five of their last six league games (L1). In each of their last six league victories, the Canaries have scored at least three goals in each. They have averaged well over two goals per home game this season and that has helped them to a W11 D2 L4 at home. 71% of all Norwich’s home games in the Championship this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Norwich are the current top scorers in the entire division.

The Canaries are undefeated in four at Carrow Road in the Championship currently, picking up a victory in three of those. Norwich have scored at last two goals in each of their last nine home games on the bounce now (W6 D2 L1). The Canaries are running on a sixteen match scoring streak in the division and they have netted in each of their last eleven at Carrow Road. 70% of their home goals have come in the second half of matches.

Swansea News and Form

The Swans picked up a 2-0 home success over Bolton last weekend. That was a good result for them as it saw them recover from back to back defeats. They are not carrying any away form though at the moment. They have lost each of their last three on their travels. They have struggled on the road against the stronger sides in the division as well. In nine away games played this season against current top half of the table teams, Swansea have claimed just the one victory. Their form on the road for the Championship campaign reads W5 D4 L8.

Swansea have taken one win in their last six out on the road (D1 L1) so they are certainly well below par on their travels. They have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three games on the road too. Considering that they are facing the league’s top scorers away from home in this one, it does point to it being a difficult afternoon for the Welsh club. Swansea have not managed a clean sheet in any of their last eight away games. Six of their eight away defeats this season have been by a one-goal margin.

Norwich v Swansea Tips & Odds

Norwich to win by a one-goal margin at 11/4
Over 2.5 goals at 4/6

Norwich v Swansea Predictions

Norwich to win: This should produce another good home win for Norwich as they are in such good form. Swansea aren’t all that bad defensively really although it’s gone a little awry for them lately. Norwich to win by a one-goal margin.
