Norwich City vs Leeds United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features the Championship league leaders in road action at Carrow Road.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Norwich picked up their first victory of the season on Wednesday night as they defeated Preston 2-0. Teemu Pukki and Alex Tettey got the goals in a result that flattered them a little. Leeds saw their 100% record come to an end on Tuesday night as they twice fought back from behind to claim a 2-2 draw with Swansea.  Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez got the goals in a game they marginally were the better team. The two meetings between these sides were won by the home team with ending 2-1 in Norfolk and 1-0 in Yorkshire. United have lost just one of their last five head-to-heads between these sides.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Norwich produced their worst performance of the season and got their best result in midweek so working them out is a mystery now. The league table suggests they should be as high as fourth so I want to try and remove them from the equation.  Leeds have so much firepower and the Canaries still not have addressed their defence issues. I would back the Yorkshire outfit to net over 1.5 team goals as they have done in all four fixtures this season while over 2.5 must be worth a small interest also.

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries have had a slow start to the season winning just once and losing two of their four fixtures. They sit 15th in the league table though the expected goals data suggests they’ve been unlucky and should be as high as fourth. At Carrow Road, they have won three and lost three of their last six with one win and one defeat in the league this campaign. Four of their last seven in front of their own fans have gone over 2.5 goals with the three that did not still producing two goals each. Teemu Pukki, Jordan Rhodes and Odel Hernandez have all managed to net twice in the league this season. Only two sides are averaging more than the four goals per fixture Norwich are averaging.

Norwich City Team News

Todd Cantwell (illness), Mario Vrancic (hip) and Kenny McLean (ligament) are doubts while Matt Jarvis (knee) and Carlton Morris (cruciate) are long-term absentees.

Leeds United Preview

The Whites have made a great start to the season with three victories and one draw from their opening four. They sit top of the Championship table on goal-difference though the expected goals data suggests they should be down in seventh. Away from Elland Road, they have taken four points from two matches this season with both matches going over 3.5 goals. Kemar Roofe has found the back of the net three times on his travels. Only West Brom (13) have scored more goals than Leeds in the Championship this season with their 11 strikes. Kemar Roofe has four league goals while Pablo Hernandez and Mateusz Klich have two each.

Leeds United Team News

Adam Forshw (unknown), Pontus Jansson (back), Stuart Dallas (thigh) and Liam Cooper (muscle) are all doubts.
