Millwall vs Norwich City Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) game from the Championship features two sides who have made a disappointing start to the season.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Millwall picked up only their second league point of the season as they battled out a 0-0 draw with Bristol City last weekend. In the League Cup, they faced fellow Championship side Reading but found themselves going out in extra-time despite a goal from Shane Ferguson.

Norwich were poor in their previous league game as they were never in their 4-2 defeat to Aston Villa despite a goal each from Josh Murphy and Nelson Oliveira. In midweek, the Canaries eased past Charlton 4-1 with a brace from Murphy and one each from Watkins and Trybull.

The last time these sides met was in the 14/15 season and Norwich came out on top in both those encounters. Each of their last five battles has seen both teams find the back of the net and four of them have gone over 2.5 goals.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

This looks a tough game to call with Norwich the favourites but poor road form and hit and miss showings so far suggest they are not to be trusted. The draw might be a player here but I will look elsewhere for my recommended bets.

The first come in the goalscorer market and I like Josh Murphy here as is he in red-hot form he has three in two in all competitions and with doubts over Oliveira and Jerome he might be given licence to switch with Marley Watkins in the forward role.

The Lions look capable of scoring against a shaky Norwich defence and I like a small interest on them to net in the first 45 minutes. The Canaries were one down in five minutes against lowly Charlton in the League Cup and are slow starters.

Millwall Preview

Just two points from four games has not been the start they would have wanted but they have been a little unlucky in some games.  This is their last game before the international break and they will hope to pick up a crucial three points.

At home, they drew with Bolton 1-1 before losing 4-3 at home to Ipswich with both results probably being a little harsh on them. Five of the nine in these fixtures came in the first 45 minutes.

The Lions have grabbed four league goals this season though these have been shared around with just one strike each. Three of their four in the league this season have gone under 2.5 goals.

Norwich City Preview

Patience is the watch word for the Canaries as new manager Daniel Farke looks to re-build a side who despite their top-ten finish clearly had issues. The main failings are at the back and these do not appear to have been fully eradicated yet.

On the road, it is one defeat and one draw from their two this season and over the last two campaigns it is just two victories from their last 19.  Eight of these last ten road trips have seen both teams find the back of the net.

Josh Murphy is the man in scoring form with three goals in their last two in all competitions while Nelson Oliveira has found the net three times in the league.  Each of their four league games has featured one or more goals in the final 15 minutes.

Cameron Jerome (groin) and Nelson Oliveira (unknown) are doubts as is Ivo Pinto (back). Timm Klose (leg), Alex Pritchard (ankle), Louis Thompson (hip), Matt Jarvis (also hip) and Jamal Lewis (knee) will all miss out.
