Norwich vs Leicester: Top free betting tips
Championship fans have a rare treat in this midweek fixture list with a top-four clash to look forward to. Second-placed Leicester City travel to Carrow Road where fourth-placed Norwich awaits their arrival to keep pace with league leaders Preston North End.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Norwich has kept three clean sheets in their last four outings. On the other hand, only two clean sheets have been seen in the Foxes' competitive outings, one against them and one in their favour. Given their respective prolific goalscoring form, we do not expect to have an exhibition of defensive solidity in their meeting. Both sides will look to overcome the other at Carrow Road and we should see them represented on the scoreboard.
Total goals prediction: Over 3.5 Goals
In their six outings so far, Norwich have the best scoring record with 15 goals to their name. Leicester are still getting their bearings in the second division and have the fourth-best attacking output with 11 goals to their name. With both sides averaging over 2 goals per match, we expect this duel to be a goal fiesta with at least 3.5 goals on offer.
Correct score prediction: 2-2 draw
Neither Norwich nor Leicester have shown a tendency to settle for points. It is evident from the results in their matches, six in six for the Foxes and five in six for the Canaries. However, with very similar goalscoring and defensive outputs, we do not see them being separated in this Round 7 meeting. Blows will be exchanged, with both sides living up to their established two-goal average, but finishing on a similar scale in the end.
Norwich vs Leicester: Form, recent games, and news
Norwich City preview
Norwich City is riding high on a perfect home record this season, winning all three of their matches with an average of two goals per game. They are soaring in fourth place and do need reminding about defensive solidity with their clean sheet against Stoke City, a rare feat at Carrow Road after five matches.
Manager David Wagner, with a promotion to the Premier League already under his belt from his time at Huddersfield Town, is forging a strong partnership with Norwich, who have a rich history of five previous promotions to the top flight.
Leicester City preview
On the other hand, the Foxes are on a remarkable Championship journey this season, marked by a stellar start with five wins out of six matches. Manager Enzo Maresca's tenure has been nothing short of impressive, with his team briefly topping the league table after a resounding 4-1 victory over Southampton. Maresca, in jubilant spirits, hailed the performance as “unbelievable.”
The Foxes are seeking an immediate return to the Premier League, much like their achievements in the 1995/96 and 2002/03 campaigns. Their travels have been remarkable, aiming for their sixth successive away victory across all competitions.
