Norwich City vs Brighton & Hove Albion Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Saturday, 4 July 2020. Kick-off 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET at the Carrow Road.
The Canaries are placed dead last in the table at the moment, and as each match-day progresses, they are getting further closer to being relegated. As of now, they need a surplus of seven points from the remaining six fixtures, in order to avoid getting the boot.
Meanwhile, the Seagulls have a slight cushion of six points over the relegation cut-off at present. But they still would love it if they could improve upon it, and this match-up against the worst squad in the league seems like an excellent opportunity to go after that objective.
Considering that they had won the reverse fixture (that too with a clean sheet), and that their counterparts are newcomers into the league, expect Brighton to deliver a great performance this weekend.
Norwich vs Brighton: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Seagulls had recorded a 2-0 win at home the last time these two had locked horns.
- They also do have a 100% winning record in Premier League fixtures, and have not once conceded a goal in such games.
- It’s been three years since they have lost a match against this rival.
- Since 2006, only once have the guests failed to score at this ground.
- The latest encounter at this venue had ended in a 1-1 draw.
Norwich vs Brighton: Prediction
The Canaries lost 4-0 on the road the last match-day, against Arsenal. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ran riot with two goals and an assist, as he helped his squad to a much-needed three points against the minnow.
In the meantime, the Seagulls lost 0-3 at home the past game week, against Manchester United. The hosts were taken out of the game early itself, as they were training 0-2 even before the half-hour mark.
As things stand though, Graham Potter’s men are easily the favorites this weekend. They are taking on a team placed 20th in the table, and who also have conceded the most number of goals, as well as have scored the least.
On top of that, the Seagulls also have a 100% winning record in PL h2h clashes, and have kept a perfect defensive record so far in such match-ups.
Moreover, their opposite number are on a five-game losing run, and they have had a total of two wins at home in their previous fourteen attempts. Taking into account these stats, expect a win from Brighton this Saturday.
