Swansea City vs Norwich City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features the league leaders away to the side in eighth place. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Swansea made it three victories from their last four with a 1-0 road success at Bolton in a game settled by a 15th minute Barry McKay effort. The result was probably a fair reflection of the fixture.

Norwich won their fifth straight as they came from 3-2 down in injury-time to go and win 4-3 at home to Millwall. Teemu Pukki grabbed a brace, while Moritz Leitner and Jordan Rhodes netted one each to give the Cananries a deserved three points.

These two sides have not met since the 2015/16 Premier League season so it is hard to read much into the head-to-heads. The Welsh outfit have lost just one of their five previous with the East Anglian side.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Norwich are on a great run of form but Swansea have picked up of late and the Liberty Stadium is not an easy place to grab a victory. Of the three options the draw appeals most as I don’t think there is much too choose between the sides but I believe better value can be found elsewhere.

I like a couple of players in the to score anytime market starting with Bersant Celina for the hosts. The Swans midfielder has two in his last three at his own ground and a player who spent a spell on loan at Ipswich will be keen to do well here. The second is the Canaries midfielder Marco Stiepermann who has no league goals this season but is having chances and looks due a goal.

Swansea City Preview

The Swans are starting to find their feet again after a run of just two wins in ten they have now won three of their last four. They sit eighth in the Championship table while the expected goals data table has them tenth.

At the Liberty Stadium, they have won three of their last four though did suffer a surprise loss to Ipswich. Ollie McBurnie and Bersant Celina have two in their last three home fixtures.

A lack of goals has been a concern for Swansea who have netted just 19 times with seven of them from Ollie McBurnie. Their defence has been excellent though conceding just 13 times which is only bettered by Middlesbrough.

 

Swansea City Team News

George Byers, (groin) and Jordi Govea are doubts while Luciano Narsingh (also hamstring) is a long-term absentee.

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries have won five straight and nine of their last 11 to move themselves up the league after a slow start. They are top by of the table by two points though the expected goals data has them in third.

Away from Carrow Road, they are unbeaten in their previous six taking maximum points in four of these. Only Leeds (16) have managed more road goals than the 14 the East Anglian outfit have grabbed this campaign.

Norwich are third highest scorers in the Championship this campaign with a total of 28 goals netted. Their defence has been decent letting in just 20 goals though just eight of these have come in the last 12.

 

Norwich City Team News

Ivo Pinto (neck), Kenny McLean (ankle) and Grant Hanley (thigh) are doubts while Matt Jarvis (knee), Aston Oxborough (hand), Louis Thompson (shoulder) and Carlton Morris (cruciate) are long-term absentees.
