Norwich City vs Aston Villa
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 7 April 2018
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).
Aston Villa have finally managed to return on the winning ways by beating reading 3-0 at home on Tuesday evening. The Lions got a huge help from David Edwards who was sent off right at the half-hour mark opening up the way for Steve Bruce’s men to pick up a confidence-boosting victory. Goals came from Birkir Bjarnason, Conor Hourihane and Scott Hogan.
Can the Lions back up this win with a result on the road? They are set to play Norwich City in the second game of the day on Saturday at Carrow Road. The Canaries’ form has seen plenty of slumps so far in the season. It is actually just going through one as Daniel Farke’s side will head into this in awful spirits after conceding six in back-to-back defeats to Fulham and Queens Park Rangers.
The Canaries have generally been playing ultra-attacking football lately and their matches have often brought five or more goals recently. This will be the music to the eras of Villa’s attackers. One of them, Scott Hogan, has instilled some confidence into this by netting a goal in a comprehensive 3-0 victory over the Royals. Villa will thus have a nice chance to end the poor run of two straight away games without a goal.

Norwich City vs Aston Villa: Prediction
The visitors will head into this in a much better mood after mid-week’s ties and we can’t see them lose against the out-of-form opposition here.
The draw or away win double chance could be regarded as a banker at 1.50, while the braver tipsters can go with the clear away win at 2.62.
