Norwich vs Bristol City
England – EFL Championship
Date: Saturday, 23rd February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).
One of the, if not the best pairing in this week’s Championship fixtures. The top-most team in the table takes on the best team of the last 5, 10 and 15 match-days.
Both would dearly like to get into the Premier League next season and have diligently plied their trade in 2018/19.
While Norwich has taken a consistent approach right from the beginning, Bristol City raised their level manifold once the initial stage was over.
The hosts also possess one of the most potent frontlines in the tournament and have recorded the second-most number of goals, overall, as well as at home.
Only if their defense was on par with the attack, there’s no telling what kind of a lead the team might have been holding right now.

Norwich vs Bristol City Prediction
As of now, no two teams other than the pair of these are better suited to produce a more nail-biting encounter in the Championship.
Both are fervently in a chase for a place in the Premier League, and as the season has started its business end, it’s a given that either will heavily favor an attacking style of football, and go in for the kill.
Norwich is the second-best team in offense, overall as well as at home. They have amassed 65 goals so far from their 33 matches in the league, and 34 at home from their 17 attempts.
At the same time, their backline has found it hard to keep pace with their counterparts, particularly at home. Only two teams of the entire 24, has conceded more in home fixtures.
This fact will be specifically playing a role in the visitors’ tactics. They were unbeaten in 15 of their last 16 games, the sole loss coming in the FA Cup against Premier League side Wolves. They also won nine of their last ten fixtures. On the road, they are unbeaten in their last six attempts and won five of them.
A goal-fest is in order, and no matter what the result is going to be, both teams will get on the scoresheet.
