Aston Villa vs Norwich
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 5th May 2019
Kick-off at 12.30 UK/ 13.30 CET
Venue: Villa Park (Birmingham).
Both Norwich and Aston Villa have been fantastic performers all through this season. Norwich is the topper of the table and needs just one more point to lift the title. But there’s a certain amount of risk associated with this tie for them.
Should they lose this fixture, and Sheffield United win against Stoke, United would be the champions, and while Norwich would still progress to the Premier League, it’d be bittersweet to lose the league crown after coming this far.
Aston Villa has qualified for the playoffs, and they have an opportunity to build confidence and momentum before entering the postseason proceedings.
With a good showing against the potential champions, they could really pose serious doubts in the minds of fellow playoff candidates.

Aston Villa vs Norwich Prediction
There’s no way that Norwich would lose this tie, and possibly let Sheffield take the league title. After all their hard work, the team deserves to be crowned champions. Moreover, they have been the best team in the competition so far and would be equipped to deal with the pressure associated with this tie.
But there’s a worrying stat at play. Norwich has never won at this venue. In fact, except for a single draw, they have lost every single game at this stadium.
Taking this information into account, a draw would be the likely outcome for the match.
Regarding goals, Norwich has the best offense in the league this season and has scored the most number of goals. They also managed to score the most number of goals on the road.
Aston Villa, on the other hand, has scored the third-most number of goals, and importantly, except for once, has recorded two or more goals at home, in every tie against Norwich.
Expect either side to get into the goal-scoring action.
