Norwich City vs Burton Albion Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

This Tuesday evening (19:45) game 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 put behind them a 4-0 loss last time out by seeing off Birmingham 1-0 in a closely fought game. The Canaries took an early lead through a Nelson Oliveira goal and then showed strong defensive spirit to limit the chances they allowed the visitors. Burton suffered a comprehensive 5-0 loss to Leeds at Elland Road in their last game.  The Brewers were outclassed in a game that they did not create a clear-cut scoring chance themselves. The home side won both encounters last season with the game at Carrow Road ending 3-1 and the one at the Pirelli Stadium 2-1. Both games followed a similar pattern with the home team taking the lead between 25-30 minutes, the visitors replying just after the break and the home netting again shortly after the equalizer.

Betting Tips and Predictions

This is a tricky looking game as Norwich should win but the prices reflect that. It is hard to get an angle on the goals market as having shipped 11 in their last three you would think Burton would tighten up, but are they capable of doing so? Norwich played a steady, nervous game last time out and you would think they would open-up here but are they brave enough to do so after being ripped apart themselves two games ago. Instead, I would look at a couple of scorer bets with Josh Murphy looking a real threat on Saturday and although he has just one league goal he has two in the League Cup and can grab a goal here.  In addition, Timm Klose was a little unlucky not to net from a set-piece at the weekend and he also looks worth an anytime play.

Norwich City Preview

It has been a tough start under new boss Daniel Farke for the Canaries with two victories, one draw and three defeats.  They sit in 17th place with seven points from six matches as they look to adjust to how the German wants his side to play. At home, it has been two victories and one defeat from their three this season and over the two campaigns, it has been 12 victories from their last 18 at Carrow Road.  The East-Anglian outfit have kept a clean sheet in four of their last five in front of their own fans winning each of these. Nelson Oliveira is the only Canary to have net more than once this season with the Portugal striker grabbing four in the league.  Just 14% of the goals that they have scored this season have come in the first-half.

Matt Jarvis (hip), Alex Pritchard (ankle), Jamal Lewis (knee) and Louis Thompson (Achilles) are all long-term absentees.

Burton Albion Preview

A season of struggle seems ahead for Burton who have just one win and one draw to show from their first six fixtures.  They sit in 22nd place and alongside Bolton are the bookmakers strong tip for the drop. On the road, they have lost each of their three this season and winning just two of 11 over the last two campaigns.  They are shipping goals with 11 conceded from their three road visits so far. They have found the back of the net just three times this season with no player scoring on more than one occasion.  The 33rd minute is the average minute of their first conceded goal though on their travels this is reduced to just the 16th minute.

Liam Boyce is out until the new-year with a Cruciate ligament injury.
