Norwich City vs Newcastle United Match Prediction

By Charlotte Louise Bushell

This is an important game at the top of the table with implications on the promotion race. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Newcastle have lost just one of their last seven head-to-head encounters with Norwich. They took an unlikely three points when these sides met in September after the Canaries were 3-1 up with just 20 minutes to play thanks to goals from Graham Dorrans (pen), Cameron Jerome and Jacob Murphy. Dwight Gayle got his second in the 71st minute to put the Magpies back in it, and then they netted a remarkable two in the 90th minute. Firstly, through Yoan Gouffran and then Dwight Gayle completed his hat-trick.

It was a comfortable afternoon for Norwich last time out as they eased past Nottingham Forest 5-1 thanks to two goals from Alex Pritchard and one each from Josh Murphy, Jonny Howson and Wes Hoolahan.

Newcastle made it back-to-back 1-0 wins as they saw off Wolves 1-0 at Molineux. Aleksandar Mitrovic got the only goal of the game in a tie that was reasonably even apart from the final scoreline.

Norwich City Team News

13 points from their last five games has seen Norwich shoot back up the Championship table and going into the midweek set of fixtures they sat in seventh place just two behind Sheffield Wednesday in sixth, though the Owls do have a game in hand.

Only Brighton (12) have won more home matches than the Canaries (11) this season. The East Anglian side have won each of their last four in the league at Carrow Road and six of their last seven.

No side has netted more than the 34 that City have fired in home league games in the Championship this season. Norwich have found the net in the first 25 minutes of seven of their last eight at home.

Newcastle United Preview

Newcastle's 13 points from their last five games also indicates that they're a team in form, and they once again sit at the top of the Championship table one point above Brighton and seven above Huddersfield.

The Magpies have by far the best away record with 11 wins from their 15 matches on the road. No side has scored more than their 25 away goals while the eight they have conceded is also a league best.

Newcastle are usually a strong team for overs backers, but their last two games have seen just a total of two goals. Both teams to score would've paid in just four of their last 11.

Norwich City Team News

The Canaries will nervously await the results of an Ivo Pinto fitness test after the defender went off injured in their game with Forest. Alex Tettey will return from his suspension. Steven Naismith (hamstring) is a doubt while Louis Thompson (hip) and Graham Dorrans (medial collateral ligament) are long-term absentees.

Newcastle United Team News

Dwight Gayle (hamstring) is close to returning although a bench place might be the best he can hope for here. Chancel Mbema (fitness) is rated day-to-day, but Rolando Aarons (toe) and Vurnon Anita (ankle) are long-term absentees.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Alex Pritchard got two goals last time out for Norwich, where he was in excellent form against Forest, and I think he looks over-priced to get among the goals here.

Mo Diame has two in his last four Newcastle league away games and at the weekend played just off the striker, so he is another who looks value in the scorer markets.
