Norwich vs Brighton: Preview and Prediction

Norwich vs Brighton Match Preview 21st April 2017

Norwich vs Brighton
England – The Championship
Date: Friday, 21st April 2017
Kick off 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).

Norwich must be disappointed after losing all chances for promotion but still will have to play 3 more games. The first one is a home game against already promoted Brighton.

Norwich had a disappointing season. They started with the hopes of going back to the English Premier League but fell short of expectations. The team sits on 8th place 10 points away from the play-off zone with just 3 games to go.

The Canaries were one of the most entertaining this season with plenty of high scoring games. Their attacking force is more than enough to break through any Championship side defensive line. In terms of defense though things are much different as The Canaries are conceding a lot of goals. Their other huge concern was their away form. Still at home Norwich are playing well scoring many goals and getting points.

Brighton got promoted last game after 34 years. The Seagulls took a hard fought 3 points against Wigan last round which was enough to earn an automatic promotion. The team is currently on top of the table with 7 points gap over Newcastle in 2nd and 13-point gap over 3rd placed Reading.

With just 3 games to go they are certain to win promotion and almost certain to become champions. The team had an amazing campaign. Brighton are the best team defensively with only 36 goals in 43 games averaging only 0.84 goals per game. Their defensive line and home record are the things that won the Seagulls their promotion.

Norwich vs Brighton: Head to head

  • In terms of head to head clashes The Canaries are far better than the Seagulls. Norwich have 6 victories, Brighton 2 and the draws are also 2 in their last 10 games.
  • At Carrow Road Norwich have 3 wins and 1 draw and defeat each.
  • Last game finished with a 5-0 victory for Brighton in late October.

Norwich vs Brighton: Prediction

Both teams are not really playing for anything right now. Norwich are out of the competition for places in the Premier League and Brighton are very close to their title. Norwich will try to just let go of their disappointment and enjoy the rest of the season while the Seagulls will play with confidence as the best team in the league this year. This will bring a lot of goals and an entertaining game.
