Norwich City vs Bristol City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) game features two sides in decent form at the top-half of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Norwich were victorious in the League Cup in midweek as they won in London defeating Brentford 3-1 thanks to a brace from Mario Vrancic (one penalty) and one from Josh Murphy. In the league, they won 1-0 at Sheffield United last time out after a 23rd minute strike from Yanic Wildschut. Bristol City were also in League Cup action defeating Premier League Stoke 2-0 following a goal each from Famara Diedhiou and Matt Taylor. In the Championship, they ran rampant defeating Derby 4-1 thanks to a goal each from Cauley Woodrow, Bobby Reid (penalty), Jamie Paterson and Famara Diedhiou. These two sides battled out a 1-1 draw in their last meeting while the game at Carrow Road ended in a 1-0 Norwich victory. Each of their last four clashes have seen the Canaries ahead at the break.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The match prices look about right given the Canaries are at home but the Robins have proved dangerous road opponents with a point at Wolves and a victory at Reading so I would look elsewhere for my bets. Given that 50% of the goals Norwich have scored have come in the last 15 minutes and 33% of those netted by Bristol City a play on this game having a late goal looks sensible. The East-Anglian side have not netted more than once in their last four league games while if you take out the game with Wolves the Robins have shipped just two in their last four league fixtures. Take the Canaries to go under 1.5 team goals which represents a nice value bet.

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries are now in 12th place in the league having taken 11 points from eight games with four of their next six at Carrow Road. They have now taken seven points from their last three after losing three of the four before that. At home, it is two victories, one draw and one defeat from four in the league this season. A feature of these games is that none of the last three visitors to Carrow Road has found the back of the net. Nelson Oliveira has netted four goals in the league this season though he is an injury doubt here. 75% of the goals the East Anglian side have scored have come in the second-half with 50% of them in the last 15 minutes.

Norwich City Team News

James Maddison (knock), Nelson Oliveira (groin) and Steven Naismith (thigh) are doubts while Matt Jarvis (ankle), Alex Pritchard (ankle), Jamal Lewis (knee) and Louis Thompson (Achilles) are long-term absentees.

Bristol City Preview

It has been a good start to the season for the Robins who were tipped by many for relegation but currently sit in 8th with 13 points from their first eight fixtures. They are eight unbeaten in all competitions taking seven points from their last three in the league. On the road, they have lost one, drawn two and won one of four though are unbeaten in their last three in the league while also winning at Watford in the League Cup. Four of their five away this season have seen both teams score and over 2.5 goals. Bobby Reid is their leading goalscorer this season with six league goals and two in the last two in the Championship. 60% of the goals they have netted have come in the second-half with 33% of these in the last 15.

Bristol City Team News

Milan Djuric (groin) is unlikely to play any part in this game.
