Norwich City vs Fulham Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Friday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in opposite halves of the Championship table.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Norwich ended a seven-game winless run last time out as they defeated Reading 3-2 in their last fixture.  The goals were shared around the team with one each for Mario Vrancic, Grant Hanley and a James Maddison penalty.  

Fulham were held to a 2-2 draw in their last match by a QPR side who fought back from two goals down.  Tom Cairney and Lucas Piazon got the goals for the Whites and while it extended their unbeaten run it will be viewed as two points dropped in their battle to keep pace with Cardiff and Wolves.

The reverse fixture came on the opening day of the season with the two sides battling out a 1-1 draw.  A Russell Martin own-goal put the London outfit ahead only for the Canaries to rescue a point two minutes from the end through Nelson Oliveira.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Fulham would probably be my recommendation here despite Carrow Road being a tough place to get a result Sheffield United, Derby and Wolves have all won here this season and the Cottagers are a similar strong side.  The London outfit need all three points and victories at Derby, Preston and Middlesbrough in recent times show they are not afraid of anyone on their travels.

The last five Fulham road games and seven of their last eight have seen both teams score while eight of the last ten at Carrow Road have seen both teams net so take the visitors to win and both teams to net.

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries have been in draw mode with six of their last eight finishing all-square winning one and losing the other.  They sit in 13th place on 52 points and manager Daniel Farke must look to develop the side and work out what he needs for next season.

At Carrow Road, they are unbeaten in their last five though again a tendency to draw has proved costly with three of these finishing all-square.  Just one of their last five at their own ground has gone over 2.5 goals.

James Maddison has been in good goalscoring form recently netting four times in his last three and eight in his last 13.  Around 59% of the goals they have scored have come in the second-half with 29% in the final 15 minutes.

 

Norwich City Team News

Alex Tettey (foot), Moritz Leitner (hamstring) and Matt Jarvis (ankle) are doubts while Louis Thompson (Achilles), Tom Trybull (ankle) and Marco Steiperman (hernia) are long-term absentees.

Fulham Preview

A run of four straight victories came to an end last time but it is still no defeat in their last 16 league games for the Cottagers. They sit in third seven points behind Cardiff though the Welsh side have a game in hand. Away from Craven Cottage, they are unbeaten in their last eight winning five of these and drawing three. Aleksandar Mitrovic has netted in each of his last three on the road and four times from these ties. Four of the last six and five of the last eight Fulham have played have seen both teams find the back of the net. Around 64% of their goals have come in the second-half with around 50% in the last 30 minutes.

Fulham Team News

Tomas Kalas (hip) is their only doubt ahead of this game.
