England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 18 July 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).
Norwich has made way to the EFL Championship for the next season as the first team to be relegated in the league table this season. Burnley will not fancy any promotion but will aim to finish the season strong in the campaign.
Norwich vs Burnley Match preview
Norwich has lost their last eight fixtures in the Premier League schedule. Nine of their recent ten losses in the league have seen them giving away clean sheets.
They will return home after a 1-0 loss on the road against Chelsea last time out in the league.
Even at home, things aren’t looking bright for the Canaries. Norwich is the league’s worst home team in terms of points, as they’ve won only 4 of their 18 home matches so far this season.
Burnley’s only loss within the recent ten matches was the away loss against Manchester City.
The Clarets will visit on the back of a six-game unbeaten streak, following a 1-1 draw at home against Wolves in their last match in the campaign.
The visitor has 7 losses in their 18 away fixtures until now, and only one of their recent five tours has ended in a defeat, promising a better run on the road for Sean Dyche’s squad.
In the reverse fixture this season, Burnley welcomed Daniel Farke’s boys to a 2-0 defeat. The Clarets again hosted them in the FA Cup but couldn’t repeat the victory as Norwich finished in a 1-2 away win.

- The teams had a 7-year gap in their meetings from 2012 to 2019.

Norwich vs Burnley Prediction
Norwich is in their worst form in the league and probably can be termed as the punching bag for the other teams in the mix to the end of the season. Their losing streak overall shows their poor form even at home. Thus, the host cannot rely on any ground advantage in the game.
Burnley is in a much better position in the league and has a 30 points lead over the host. The visitor has lost just one of their last seven away matches, keeping four clean sheets in that run. Thus, their form away from home will not be a concern for the visitors.
The away win will be risky and instead, we can rely on double chance favoring Burnley at 1.40 odds to yield decent returns in a safer bet. Norwich has scored no goals in their last four home matches. Based on this stat, the tip for Norwich to score under 1.5 goals will be a suitable bet for the punters.
