Ipswich Town vs Norwich City
English League Championship
Date: Sunday, 2nd August 2018
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Portman Road (Ipswich).
This time Sunday offers us two games instead of the usual one. The early one features battle in the second half of the table between Ipswich Town and Norwich City.
Ipswich is looking extremely disappointing this season. It was obvious that the team will have some transition period following Mick McCarthy’s reign but things are looking worse than first thought. The Tractor Boys are sitting at the bottom of the table having won just 2 points.
Last weekend Town took another blow to their ambitions. They visited Hillsborough hoping to get something from local Sheffield. Lucas Joao didn’t like such script though and scored twice to give Wednesday a 2-1 victory denying Ipswich of any points.
Norwich looks as inconsistent as last season. Farke’s boys are going from top level performance to utter disappointment. The main problem looks to be at the back. The Canaries are letting other teams take easy chances and this often leads to goals at the back of their net.
Norwich took a good midweek victory in the Carabao Cup over Premier League side Cardiff. The team played well and showed some cutting edge scoring 3 goals. In the league though things were not so rosy. Leeds visited Carrow Road and smashed Norwich with 0-3.

Ipswich Town vs Norwich City: Predictions
This is looking like an evenly matched encounter. Both sides are not playing at their best and have a serious need for points.
Ipswich are really struggling currently and things may become even worse if they fail in this game.
Norwich will want to improve following the defeat from Leeds. The visitors have the history in those clashes in their favour and may edge the game.
