Norwich City vs Millwall Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This New Year’s Day fixture (15:00) from Carrow Road features two sides in the middle third of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Norwich were held to a goalless draw in their last fixture by Burton at the Pirelli Stadium. It was a game low on chances and quality and the point probably did not do either side any favours. Millwall continued their recent good form with a 1-0 victory over their London rivals QPR last time out. The Lions took all three points thanks to a 55th minute goal from cult hero Steve Morison in a game they just shaded. The reverse fixture at the end of the August saw the Lions run rampant at the Den coming out on top 4-0. The goalscorers on that occasion were Lee Gregory, George Wallace, Sam Hutchinson and Jed Wallace who netted one each.

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to side with either outfit here with any degree of confidence given that the hosts cannot win at their own ground but the visitors cannot win on the road so I would look to other markets for the value. Given that Norwich have 66% of their goals this season in the second half backing those to be the highest scoring 45 minutes for them looks a sensible bet. James Maddison should be back in the starting lineup after being rested against Burton and he has two in the last three and with Alex Pritchard back in the side he has licence to get forward more and not worry so much about creating.

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries are in a mixed run of form with two victories, two draws and one defeat from their last five which sees them in 13th place. 2017 was a tough year as they failed to make the play-offs and it will be interesting to see if Daniel Farke is given money to spend in the transfer window. At Carrow Road, it is just one victory from their last nine for the East Anglian side though five of these have finished in draws. Each of their last four and six of their last seven in front of their own fans has seen both teams score. The 24 goals Norwich have scored this season is the joint third lowest in the division. 66% of goals they have scored have come in the second-half while 33% have come in the final 15 minutes.

Norwich City Team News

Harrison Reed (unknown), Cameron Jerome (back), Marco Stiepermann and Steven Naismith (both groin) are doubts. Louis Thompson (Achilles) and Matt Jarvis (ankle) are long-term absentees

Millwall Preview

It is now three victories, two draws and just one defeat from their last six for the Lions who sit in 15th place. 2017 was a good year for Millwall who gained promotion and if they can still be in the Championship at the end of 2018 then that can also be considered a good year for them. Away from the Den, they have not won any of their 12 in the league this season but six of these have ended in a draw. They have failed to score in their last three on the road and the five netted is the joint lowest in the division. Three of their last four and four of their last six have gone over 2.5 goals with three of them seeing both teams score. George Saville is the leading Millwall scorer this season with seven goals though he has netted just one in his last eight.

Millwall Team News

Conor McLaughlin (groin), Shane Ferguson, Tom Elliott (both unknown) and Byron Webster (cruciate) are doubts.
