Burnley vs Norwich Prediction

Burnley had taken on Peterborough in the prior round, and the former had the home advantage as well. Dominating the game throughout, the hosts recorded a 4-2 victory.

Norwich registered a similar win over Preston, with the same scoreline as well, only on the road though.

In regards to the result of this upcoming encounter, understand that Norwich are easily the worst team in the Premier League as of now. They are placed dead-last in the table, and have conceded the most number of goals in the competition.

Also, they have the worst goal-difference of all the teams in the contest, and are easily the worst team on the road.

Keep note that the squad had gained promotion to this division just this last summer, whereas Burnley have been a presence in the PL for the last few years.

In addition, Norwich were winless in 16 of their last 19 overall games, and had three separate three-match losing streaks this season alone.

On the road, they have had a total of just two wins in the whole of 2019-20, and one of those was against a team from the lower division.

On the other hand, Burnley are brimming with confidence as they defeated Leicester in their previous league encounter. Keep note that the Foxes have been considered to be one of the best teams in England as of now.

Moreover, at home, Burnley are on a two-match winning run, and have scored two or more goals in both.

Going on, since 2010, home teams have always won h2h clashes, and the last a team on the road registered an h2h victory was 14 years back. At this venue, Burnley won the last six face-to-face encounters in a row, and have failed to score two or more goals only once since 2000.

On the other hand, Norwich have been able to score a total of just two goals from their last six visits to this stadium, and they have won exactly once in the 21st century at this ground.

Considering all these overwhelming pointers, it’s easily concluded that Burnley are on course to record a convincing win this weekend.
