Norwich vs Birmingham: Top Free Betting Tips

After dropping points against Wigan Athletic, Norwich City takes on Birmingham City in the next EFL Championship fixture on Tuesday, 21 February. The Blues come into this game after facing consecutive defeats in the league.

Match Result Prediction: Norwich to Win

Norwich City has a total of three victories, two defeats and a draw in the last eight league outings. The team had been getting through a winless pattern at home but found the winning play in the previous hosting duel against Hull City. On the other hand, Birmingham City has registered only one victory in the recent five away outings in Championship, losing three of them. Norwich City has also won all of the last five home H2Hs against the Blues. Based on these numbers, we set the Canaries as our favourites to take the lead in this game.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Norwich City has been inconsistent on the scoring end in recent attempts, scoring seven goals in the last five outings. However, the Canaries have added a total of 11 goals in the previous five H2Hs against the Blues. Birmingham City has also rattled the net eight times in the previous five league outings, allowing nine in the same course. Four of the last five H2Hs of these teams have ended with over 2.5 goals and we expect another high-scoring total in this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Norwich

The Canaries have hit the target twice or more in two of the last five attempts and performed the same in four of the recent five H2Hs against Birmingham City. The Blues have also held a poor defence recently and leaked 12 goals in the last four away league outings, conceding more than once in all of them. On the scoring end, the visitors have scored at least twice in only two of the recent five attempts in the EFL Championship. Given this, we see the Canaries taking a 2-1 lead before the final whistle blows in this game.

Norwich vs Birmingham: Form, Recent Games, and News

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries travelled to Wigan Athletic in the last game and were clipped to a goalless draw. Norwich City has a total of 13 wins and seven draws in 31 games and recent winless attempts have dropped them to the ninth position on the table. Left winger Przemyslaw Placheta will miss out on this game due to a shin bone bruise.

Norwich finds themselves in a bitter fight for playoff places. They are three points adrift of the promotion lottery slots but will be concerned with their worse-off goal difference. Top-scorer Josh Sargent would want to get further implicated in improving this tally and with Teemu Pukki contributing with 10 goals and 7 assists to Sargent's 11 goals and 2 assists, they have the necessary ingredients to move further up the points table. It will not be an easy task as after the duo, there is a significant drop off in contributions.

Birmingham City Preview

The Blues scored the first goal of the previous game in the sixth minute against Huddersfield but they couldn’t defend it for too long, featuring a 2-1 defeat at the end. The team is present in the eighteenth position with ten wins and eight draws in 32 attempts. The head coach John Eustace will be free to report any fitness issues before this game.

While Norwich are profiting from Sargent and Pukki's goals, Scott Hogan and Troy Deeney will show up for Birmingham. The Blues will want more from their attacking unit as they sit dangerously close to the relegation slots. They have lost three of their last five fixtures and need to straighten their act together to avoid the drop.
