Bournemouth vs Norwich City Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

AFC Bournemouth vs Norwich City
English Championship
Date: Sunday, 27 September 2020
Kick-Off at 16.00 UK
Venue: Vitality Stadium.

English Championship round two is going to be wrapped up on Sunday afternoon with a derby match. Norwich City are coming at Vitality Stadium to face in-form AFC Bournemouth.

In our opinion, these two teams have the most dangerous squads when it comes to offense this year, so don’t be surprised to witness high number of goals.

The Cherries have just returned from a trip to Manchester where they faced the Citizens in EFL Cup, losing the game eventually 2-1.

Overall, performance was good, which is probably one of the main reasons why bookies marked them as warm favorites against Canaries. The current price is 2.40.

Bournemouth vs Norwich City Head-to-head

Both squads were members of the Premier League last season, and both got relegated. Match at this stadium ended without winner and without goals, while Norwich celebrated a narrow 1-0 win at Carrow Road.

All-time stats are slightly going in favour of Norwich City who have won three meetings, while losing two. Goal difference is tied at 8-8.

Five out of the seven h2h’s ended either with BTTS or Over 2.5 goals FT.

Bournemouth vs Norwich City Prediction

Norwich’s coach Daniel Farke can count on almost all players from the previous season. Eyes of their fans are going in direction of Finnish striker Teemu Pukki who scored 40 goals for Canaries in the last two seasons. He already found the back of net in the Championship this season and will definitely be the hottest option when it comes to goalscorers market.

Norwich are currently 5th after winning four points in the opening two games – three against Huddersfield, one against Preston North End. This team rarely kept a clean sheet in 2020 though.

AFC Bournemouth are playing very open football, as four out of their last five outings ended with three goals or more. We are expecting to see a similar scenario at Vitality on Sunday, and goals market is definitely the best betting approach.

Bournemouth vs Norwich City Bet Tips

  • Both teams to score @ 1.66
  • Over 1.5 goals in the first half @ 2.75.
