Norwich City vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) game features two sides who were in good form but will be looking to bounce back after a defeat at the weekend. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Norwich will be looking to bounce back after suffering a 2-1 defeat at home to Derby which the expected goals data shows was a little harsh on them. Timm Klose got them back on level terms but they were undone once more perhaps a victim of tired legs after playing Sunday and then again for 120 minutes in the League Cup on Tuesday. Wolves also went for 120 minutes in the League Cup in midweek and were also undone by a late goal. They suffered a 2-1 defeat at Loftus Road despite Leo Bonatini getting a fifth goal from his last four league games. The two meetings between the pair last season ended in victories for the Canaries 3-1 at Carrow Road and 2-1 at Molienux. In fact, the East Anglian outfit have lost just one of their last nine against Wanderers and have won each of their last three battles.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Bookmakers have priced the pair at almost identical odds and this seems a fair assessment of the game. I think Wolves are the stronger team but not that much stronger and then you also should factor in home advantage. One bet I like the look of is the second-half to be the highest scoring as these two sides have played a lot of football over the last week and we could have some tired legs here by the end of the game. This also means backing a late goal to be scored (after 72:59) as both teams were involved in a match with a late goal at the weekend.

Norwich City Preview

Defeat last time out for the Canaries put to an end a run eight games unbeaten and one that means they now sit in the top eight rather than the bottom eight. After this game, just two of their next ten are against sides in the top eight. At Carrow Road, it has been a mixed bag with just two victories, three draws and two defeats from seven. They have failed to win any of their last four in front of their own fans and have netted just once in these matches. On each of the six occasions that Norwich have netted the first goal then they have gone to take all three points. They have failed to win any of the five that they have conceded the opening goal.

Norwich City Team News

Steven Naismith (groin), Alex Tettey (calf), Jamal Lewis (knee), Louis Thompson (Achilles), Matt Jarvis and Alex Pritchard (both ankle) continue to be long-term absentees.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview

Defeat last time out was the second loss in five games for Wolves and the third for the season. It marked their first loss against a bottom-half side though with the other losses coming against high-flying Cardiff and Sheffield United. Away from Molienux, it has been four victories, one draw and two defeats in seven though those losses have come in the last three. The 12 goals they have scored on the road is the joint most in the league. Only Hull have netted more than the 25 goals they have scored while they have a top ten ranked defence that have conceded 15 times. Just one of their last ten goals has come in the final 20 minutes of a game.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News

Carl Ikeme (hamstring) is back in training while Phil Ofosu-Ayeh (hip) is out until January at the earliest.
