Leeds United vs Norwich City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in different halves of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Leeds continued their recent good form as they won 3-1 at Loftus Road against QPR thanks to a second-half Kemar Roofe hat-trick. The scoreline flattered United who converted their chances while their opponents failed to do the same. Norwich put to an end their own horrible run of form as they produced a second-half comeback to beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-1 at Carrow Road. The goals were spread around the team with one each for James Maddison, Tim Klose and Nelson Oliveira (penalty). The two meetings between these sides last season favoured the Yorkshire side who won 3-2 at Carrow Road, drew at Elland Road they also knocked the Canaries out of the League Cup on penalties.

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to have a strong opinion in the match market between two sides who have shown some good things this season but also some poor efforts. I would instead look at some of the other markets for the best bets. Eight of the last ten for Leeds have gone over 2.5 goals while Norwich games when they are facing the top sides tend to go over also as they can find the back of the net but struggle to shut out strong attacks. Over 2.5 goals seems the sensible bet here with a small play of over 3.5 goals also worth an interest.

Leeds United Preview

It is now seven points from their last three games for Leeds and just one defeat from their last five fixtures. They are just outside the play-off spots in seventh place and have four fixtures in a row against teams in the bottom-half. At Elland Road, they have struggled of late with just four points from their last five matches though four of these have come against top-eight sides. A feature of these games has been both teams to score which has happened in the last four and five of the last six. Eight of the last ten for the Yorkshire side have gone over 2.5 goals with the two that did not still seeing two goals each. Around 55% of the goals they have scored this season have come in the first-half with 36% in the opening 30 minutes.

Leeds United Team News

Stuart Dallas (ankle), Pierre Michel Lassoga (unknown) and Pablo Hernandez (hamstring) are doubts.

Norwich City Preview

Victory last time out put an end a miserable run of seven without victory in the Championship for the Canaries. This is the hardest of the next five fixtures with each of the four after coming against sides in the bottom half of the table.Away from Carrow Road, they have lost each of their last three but before that had won four straight. They have netted just seven times on the road in their last eight while conceding six times in their last three. Five of the last six Norwich matches have seen both teams find the back of the net. James Maddison has two in the last three and five for the season for the East Anglian outfit.

Norwich City Team News

Steven Naismith (groin) and James Husband (groin) are doubts while Matt Jarvis (ankle), Alex Tettey (calf) and Jamal Lewis (knee) are closing in on returns. Remi Matthews (shin) and Louis Thompson (Achilles) are long-term absentees.
