Norwich vs Birmingham: Top free betting tips

Round 9 of the EFL Championship sees Norwich City and Birmingham City fighting to end their winless form on Saturday, 30 September. The Canaries enter this game from eighth position while Birmingham is just one point behind them in tenth place after eight matchdays.

Match result prediction: Norwich to win

Norwich City had suffered three consecutive defeats before this game in the EFL Championship and EFL Cup. However, the Canaries have brought a dominant form at Carrow Road with three victories in their last four home games. On the other hand, Birmingham are without a victory in the last five fixtures while losing three of them. Additionally, the Canaries have also defeated the Blues in all of their last five H2H meetings. Hence, we predict Norwich to fancy their chances in front of their home fans on coming Saturday.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Norwich City have found the back of the net in three of their league outings at Carrow Road this season. But despite winning three of them, the Canaries claimed only one clean sheet in that duration. On the other hand, Birmingham has also been on the scoring side in four of the previous five fixtures away from St Andrew’s. Three of the recent four H2Hs of these teams at Carrow Road Stadium have also witnessed BTTS outcomes. Following these facts, we predict both teams getting on the scoresheet in this encounter.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Norwich

Norwich City have found the back of the net more than once in two of the previous four fixtures at Carrow Road. On the other hand, Birmingham City were limited to scoring just one goal in three of the last five league outings, remaining goalless in the other two. The Blues conceded multiple goals in three matches during that course as well. Meanwhile, the Canaries have allowed an average of just one goal per game in their recent four home matches. Therefore, we believe to see a 2-1 margin for Norwich before the referee blows the full-time whistle.
