Norwich City vs Preston Prediction & Match Preview

Norwich City vs Preston North End
English Championship
Date: Saturday, 19 September 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Carrow Road, Norwich.

Team that earned the highest number of promotions from Championship to Premier League in the last decade Norwich City are once again favorites for the highest placement.

The Canaries kicked off the new season with a narrow win against Huddersfield Town on the road, and looking to extend the winning streak in round two against Preston North End.

The odds and quality are definitely on their side, but The Lillywhites snatched a lot of points from top six teams in the previous campaign. All in all, we should witness an interesting match.

Norwich City vs Preston Head-to-head

A big majority of most recent head to head duels usually involved high number of goals. There were 26 matches total in the past, and the score is tied at ten victories each. Four out of the last six ended either BTTS or Over 2.5 goals FT.

61 goals were scored in those encounters, which averages 2.34 per match. That number is higher when it comes to duels at Carrow Road though.

The most recent h2h was in January this year as part of FA Cup. Norwich City took a commanding 4-2 win at Deepdale.

Norwich City vs Preston Prediction

It seems like that unexpected 1-3 loss to Luton Town didn’t have a big effect on Norwich’s confidence. Daniel Farke’s squad controlled the first round match against Huddersfield and eventually capitalized on that in 80th minute. Teemu Pukki made an assist to Adam Idah who scored the winning goal.

Canaries are favourite number one in eyes of bookmakers to earn promotion, or better to say, make an express comeback to the Premier League. We feel that 1.80 odds on home win here are well-wrapped present for punters.

If we ignore victory against Derby on Wednesday night in League Cup (mixed lineups), Preston are winless for four matches in a row. They have failed to score in three out of four pre-season games and round one duel. Tradition says Lillywhites usually bag one against Canaries.
