Norwich City vs Leeds United
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 28 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).
Norwich City are Leeds United are level on points right in the middle of the Championship ladder. Neither of the sides has an imperative which promises and open and entertaining clash with a host of goal-scoring chances at both ends.
The Canaries did not score in last two league ties, but the last home game of the season should provide them an opportunity to create in the final third given their rivals also have nothing to play for in the remaining two matches of the campaign.
The Peacocks, on the other side, were on a run of three defeats and a draw in four games before beating Barnsley 2-1 last weekend at Elland Road. Goals came from the left-back Tom Pearce and the right-winger Egzijan Alioski.
Norwich City vs Leeds United: Head-to-head
Leeds United were slightly more successful over the course of history. They won 17 and lost 11 of 40 head to head ties with the Canaries.
Three games in a row saw both teams scoring and at least three goals in the game before such high-scoring trend came to an end in the previous meeting when the Peacocks snatched a 1-0 victory at Elland Road.
Leeds United took a 2-3 victory in the previous match at Carrow Road.
Norwich City vs Leeds United: Prediction
Paul Heckingbottom’s men were really struggling for results away from home in this term of the Championship. They are winless in last 11 games on the road and they will travel to Norfolk off the back of three consecutive defeats away from Elland Road. On the other side, Norwich were everything but consistent in another dismal campaign in the second tier and one can hardly rely on them, meaning it’s very hard to find the value in backing the hosts at the 1.75 odds.
The draw looks much more tempting at 3.75 and it will be our outcome pick here. As for the main option, we’ll shoot for goals at both ends at 1.61, expecting an open game without rock-solid defensive lines in a match which will by no means affect the final standings.
