Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Norwich City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Wednesday evening game (19:45) features the league leaders in action against mid-table Norwich. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Wolves come into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw with Preston in their last fixture. Helder Costa got their goal but they would have been disappointed not to take all three points having played against ten men for around 30 minutes. Norwich rescued a point in their local derby with Ipswich when Timm Klose headed home an equalizer in the 95th minute. A draw was probably a fair result for a game Ipswich were the stronger side in the first half and the Canaries dominated the second period. The reverse fixture came at the end of October in East Anglia with the Black Country outfit winning that one 2-0. Willy Boly and Leo Bonatini were the goalscorers on that occasion for Wanderers.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The home side are strong favourites to win the game but the price does not offer any value especially against a Norwich side who will take comfort from their fight back to earn a point in the East Anglian derby. In their last five home games Wolves have scored a total of five goals in the opening 45 minutes so take a play on the first half to over 1.5 goals as the Canaries also are capable on the counter-attack. In addition, take YES in the both teams to score in the first 45 minutes market.
