Norwich City vs Brentford Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Friday evening game (19.45) features two sides in the bottom half of the Championship. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Norwich lost 1-0 to Leeds at Elland Road last time out in a closely fought game. The expected goals data shows that there was little to choose between the sides but a goal just before half-time saw the Canaries return home without anything. Brentford drew 0-0 at home to Barnsley in a game that they will be disappointed they did not take all three points from. The expected goals data shows that the Bees were on top but could not find the breakthrough. These two sides have already met once this season with the East Anglian outfit winning 3-1 at Griffin Park in the League Cup with Mario Vrancic netting a brace. It continues the form from last season which saw Norwich 5-0 at their own ground and take a point in a goalless draw in London.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given that Brentford are the draw specialists in the division with ten for the season and Norwich have drawn two of their last three at their own ground then taking this game to end all-square looks the call as the league table shows these two sides are of a similar ability and could cancel each other out. Both teams have scored five of the last six at Carrow Road and in seven of the last ten for the Bees so taking the game to end in a draw and both teams to score (which covers 1-1, 2-2 and upwards) looks a sensible approach.

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries have now lost six of their last nine in the league a run that has seen them slide down the table into 16th. This marks the first of a four-game spell against teams in the bottom-half and they must pick up some points if they do not want to be involved in a relegation battle this season. At Carrow Road, they are unbeaten in three though the victory over Sheffield Wednesday in their last match in front of their own fans was their first win in eight. Both teams to score is a feature of their home ties with four of their last five and five of their last six seeing both teams net. The East-Anglian outfit are struggling for goals this season with the 21 they have netted the joint third lowest in the division. Just 31% of the goals Norwich have scored have come in the first-half and just 14% in the 30 minutes before half-time.

Norwich City Team News

Steven Naismith, James Husband (both groin), Matt Jarvis (ankle) and Jamal Lewis (knee) are doubts. Remi Matthews (shin) and Louis Thompson (Achilles) are long-term absentees.

Brentford Preview

The Bees drew their tenth game of the season last time out which is the highest amount in the league and explains why they sit 13th. This is the start of a tricky four-game holiday period run with Wolves, Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday the other sides they are set to face. Away from Griffin Park, they have struggled recently with two defeats and just one draw in their last three. They have netted in seven of their last eight on the road and have scored two or more on six of these occasions. Four of their last five and five of their last seven have seen both teams find the back of the net. Six of their last ten have gone over 2.5 goals while three of their last four have gone over 3.5.

Brentford Team News

Lasse Vibe (hamstring) is close to a return while Henrik Dalsgaard (heel) is a doubt. Alan Judge (leg) and Rico Henry (knee) are long-term absentees.
