Luton Town vs Norwich City
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 2 December 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Kenilworth Road.
The Canaries were relegated from the top flight just at the end of the last season, and judging their performances so far this campaign – they are determined to make a swift return back to the PL.
They are currently placed at the top of the table, and one of their only two losses so far in the competition had come against the second-placed Bournemouth, who were also relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2019-20 season.
Going on, they also have a great h2h record against this opponent over the years, and especially in recent times.
Meanwhile, the Hatters are struggling to show any kind of consistency lately, and have been conceding goals in plenty as well. Moreover, they have been a total failure in home games recently too.
As such, expect toppers Norwich to have a great chance at posting the three points this Wednesday.
Luton vs Norwich: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Daniel Farke’s men had won five of the past seven meetings.
- They have scored three or more goals in four of the preceding six games, and scored two or more goals in six of the past eight fixtures.
- The last they lost a league match-up against this opponent was back in 2005.
- Since 1989, only once have the guests failed to score at this stadium, and since 1992, only once have they failed to score two or more goals here.
- At this ground, the visitors had won three of the former four matches.
Luton vs Norwich: Prediction
Nathan Jones’s men had lost 4-0 on the road the last match-day, against Cardiff. In the meantime, Farke’s men were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Coventry.
Moving on, the Hatters are on a four-fixture winless run, and they remained so in ten of their preceding thirteen games as well. At home, they are on a five-game winless run, and they have kept just two clean sheets here since November of 2019.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a ten-game unbeaten run (seven of which were wins), and they are also the toppers of the table.
They are also on a three-fixture winning run on the road, and more importantly, they were the champions of this same competition, before securing promotion to the PL.
Taking these stats into consideration, it’s inferred that Norwich are easily the stronger team of the two, and they will dominate proceedings right from the get-go.
