Ipswich Town vs Norwich City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Sunday lunchtime (12:00) fixture is an East Anglian Derby between two sides in need of Championship points. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Ipswich suffered a back-to-back loss in the Championship going down 2-1 away to Sheffield Wednesday. Aristotle Nsiala was the hero and then the villain as he netted the equalizer and then was sent-off with 15 minutes remaining and the game poised at 1-1. Norwich were outclassed in their last league game and can have few complaints after going down 3-0 at Leeds. They restored some confidence in midweek when they knocked Cardiff out of the League Cup 3-1 thanks to a brace from Dennis Srbeny and one from teenager Max Aarons. Four of the last six meetings between these sides have ended drawn with the Canaries unbeaten in ten against their local rivals. Jonas Knudsen has found the back of the net in two of the last four clashes.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Norwich are favourites to win this game but given they have not won a league fixture on the road since January I could not recommend backing them at those prices. Ipswich have picked up home draws with decent sides in Blackburn and Aston Villa this season and they look good value in the draw no bet market. Jonas Knudsen seems to like playing the Norfolk outfit having grabbed two in four against them and he looks a big each-way price in the goalscorer markets.

Ipswich Town Preview

The Tractor Boys have had a tough start to the season failing to win any of their five league games and picking up just two points. They are bottom of the Championship table, though the expected goals data feels this is harsh and has them in 16th. At Portman Road, they have drawn both this season in the league and each of their last three.  All these matches have been score draws with it ending 2-2 on two occasions and 1-1 on the other. A major issue for Ipswich has been lack of goals with just four netted and two of these came on the opening day.  They have conceded eight goals with no clean sheets from any of their five.

Ipswich Town Team News

Aristote Nsiala will miss the game through suspension while Emyr Huws and Joshua Emmanuel are expected to miss out as they continue their recoveries.

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries have made a slow start to the season winning just one of their five fixtures losing three of these. They sit down in 18th but the expected goals feels this is more on bad luck and has them as high as fourth. Away from Carrow Road, they won in midweek at Cardiff 3-1 but in the league are ten without a victory. Each of their three on the road this season (in all competitions) have seen both teams score and over 2.5 goals. The Canaries have netted eight times this season with Onel Hernandez, Jordan Rhodes and Teemu Pukki getting two each. Their defence has been a mess though shipping 11 times which is the second worst record in the division.

Norwich City Team News

Mario Vrancic (hip) is a doubt while Kenny McLean (ankle) is a few weeks from a return. Carlton Morris (cruciate) and Matt Jarvis (knee) are long-term absentees.
