Brentford v Norwich City
English Carabao Cup Season 2017/18
Date: Tuesday 19th September 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Griffin Park.
Neither Brentford nor Norwich City can be especially satisfied with the start of the season in Championship, but the Canaries will certainly enter the League Cup match in a much better mood after keeping their net untouched in three consecutive league outings.
The Bees collected no more than four points in eight opening fixtures of the new season and avoiding the drop to the League One football will require a serious turnaround in form for Dean Smith’s side.
The hosts are winless in last four matches (ever since an impressive display in thumping of Queens Park Rangers in the second round of League Cup almost a month ago).
The German expert Daniel Farke has had huge issues finding the chemistry with the Canaries ever since he took charge of the team in May this year.
The Canaries got off to a poor kick off to the new Championship campaign, but they seem to be a completely different team since the 4-0 defeat to Millwall at The Den.
The visitors took seven points from three following outings against Birmingham City, Burton Albion and Sheffield United.
Brentford vs Norwich City: Head to head
Norwich have been more successful in the most recent head to head history of meetings with Brentford.
The Canaries won two of last three matches against the Bees, they haven’t conceded a single goal in last two outings, and they bagged as many as five goals past Dean Smith’s squad in December last year at Carrow Road.
Brentford vs Norwich City: Prediction
We have to stick to Norwich City here since the quality, the form, and the head to head stats all speak in their favour.
We see a decent value in backing the visitors to win the match at 17/10, but the safer option would be DNB at also quite tempting 5/6 odds.
