Brentford vs Norwich City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in the middle-third of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Brentford continued their recent good run of form with a 1-0 victory over Reading at the Madejski last time out. Lasse Vibe got the only goal of the game in a game the Bees deserved to come out on top in.

Norwich suffered a 2-1 home loss to Sheffield United in their previous fixture with manager Daniel Farke admitting that 120 minutes and penalties three days earlier had left his players physically and mentally drained. An Ivo Pinto 70th minute goal brought it back to 2-1 though it would have been harsh on the Blades if the Canaries took anything from the match.

The reverse fixture came in December just before Christmas at Carrow Road and the London outfit won that one 2-1. Lasse Vibe scored both goals for the visitors while Nelson Oliveira bagged an injury-time consolation for the hosts.

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to argue with the prices on offer with Brentford favourites giving their home advantage and the fact they beat Norwich 2-1 at Carrow Road just over a month ago and I could not put anyone off backing them but I think better value can be found elsewhere.

Over 2.5 goals is the favourite here but I quite like the look of going under which has happened in three of the last four at Griffin Park and each of the last four on the road for the Canaries.

Both sides have scored over two-thirds of their goals in the first-half and so backing the second 45 minutes to be the highest scoring looks a sensible bet.

Brentford Preview

It is now five victories from their last six in the league for the Bees who have climbed up into ninth place. They are just three points outside the play-offs and will not have given up on automatic promotion as they are just ten away from that.

At Griffin Park, you must go back to the 12th August 2017 for the last time they lost a league game. They have conceded just one goal in their last four in front of their own fans keeping clean-sheets in three of these.

The 42 goals Brentford have netted this season gives them the joint-fourth best attacking record in the division. 14 of their 28 matches have been level going into the interval with just 29 of the 77 season total goals in their fixtures coming in this period.

Brentford Team News

Henrik Dalsgaard (heel) and John Egan (concussion) are both available after injury but Rico Henry (cruciate) is a long-term absentee.

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries saw their four-game league unbeaten run come to an end last time out with a 2-1 home defeat. They sit in 13th place and are nine from the play-offs and twelve above the relegation zone in mid-table.

Away from Carrow Road, they have taken seven points from their last three which includes victories at Bristol City and Birmingham. These road matches tend to be low scoring with just one of the last six and three of the last ten in the league going over 2.5 goals.

The East Anglian side have been ahead just seven times going into the break and have scored just eight first-half goals this season. Four of their last six in the Championship have produced a total of exactly two or three goals.

Norwich City Team News

Tom Trybull (back), Marley Watkins (knee), Louis Thompson (Achilles) and Matt Jarvis (ankle) are all doubts.
