Norwich City vs Rotherham United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixtures features two sides without a defeat in their last 14 combined matches. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Norwich saw their six-game winning run come to an end but are seven without defeat following a goalless draw at Hull. The home side did well to frustrate the free-scoring Canaries who marginally had done enough that they should have won it.

Rotherham stretched their unbeaten run to seven with a third straight draw as they battled out a 2-2 at home to QPR. The Millers twice took the lead but were twice pegged back with Will Vaulks and Clark Robertson getting their goals.

The Canaries have lost just one of their 12 meetings with the Millers this century though this did come in their last battle. Each of the last six head-to-heads has seen both teams find the back of the net.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Norwich should win the game but Hull showed in midweek a blueprint for handling the Canaries and Rotherham will happily try to match that and given how organized and well-drilled they are this will not be a walk in the park for the hosts.

I like the look of the game to be level at half-time given around 78% of the goals the East Anglian outfit have netted have come in this period. Also, look to oppose the home side in the team goals market which is set at 35:00.
