Brentford vs Norwich City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This New Year’s Day (kick-off 15:00) fixture features the side in second place on the road to the team in 18th. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Brentford recorded their second successive draw and stretched their unbeaten run to three with a goalless game at Birmingham. This was probably a fair reflection of events with the Bees marginally the better side.

Norwich saw their 12-game unbeaten league run come to an end with a 3-4 home loss against Derby despite leading with just four minutes to go. Teemu Pukki grabbed a brace and Ben Godfrey one in a game that their defensive mistakes costs them a deserved three points.

The reverse fixture came on October 27th at Carrow Road and it ended 1-0 to the East Anglian outfit thanks to an Emiliano Buendia goal.  The Canaries just about did enough to win on that occasion.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Bookmakers make Brentford to win this game which might seem a little harsh when looking at the league tables but Norwich do have a few injury worries. I actually think the draw the more likely of the three results but I prefer to look elsewhere to find the value.

Under 2.5 goals is the outsider of two here but I think that might be the way to play this as Norwich have seen this in two of their last three on the road while none of the last four for the Bees have gone under. I also think if we do see goals we will have to wait for them so back no early goal which is set at 28:00.

Brentford Preview

The Bees have gone three unbeaten now but they still have won just one of their last nine and sit in 18th. They could do with a few new faces to strengthen in the transfer window but they tend not to bring in players in January.

At Griffin Park,  the London outfit have won two of their last five and just once against a top 12 side at their place. Neal Maupay has two in his last three at his own place, Ollie Watkins has three in five.

Just one of the last four Brentford have played have seen both teams net through the five prior to that did.  Their last three in the league have produced a total of just three goals and none of the last four have gone over 2.5 goals.

 

Brentford Team News

Emiliano Marcondes (ankle) and Lewis MacLeod (hamstring) are long-term absentees while Chris Mepham (foot) is a doubt.

Norwich City Preview

It is just one win in the last four for the Canaries (two of these ending in draws) who are starting to stutter a little. They sit second but the squad could use a little bit of investment at the back and in centre midfield for a January promotion push.

Away from Carrow Road, the East Anglian outfit are unbeaten in their last ten with two of these three finishing all-square. Marco Stiepermann has netted twice in his last four on the road.

Norwich have seen five of their last six in the league feature both teams net and gone over 3.5 goals. Away though two of their last three have gone under 1.5 goals through the other produced four.

 

Norwich City Team News

Emiliano Buendia (Ligament), Jamal Lewis (hamstring), Moritz Leitner and Kenny McLean (both ankle)) are doubts.  Matt Jarvis (knee), Aston Oxborough (hand), Louis Thompson (shoulder) and Carlton Morris (cruciate) are long-term absentees.
