Norwich City vs Burton Albion
League Championship – England
Date: Saturday, 24th September 2016,
Kick-Off: 15:00 UK
Venue: Carrow Road, Norwich, Norfolk.
Norwich upset Everton in the League Cup third round fixture at the Goodison Park on Wednesday to maintain their unbeaten run in all competitions. And back in the Championship, the Canaries haven’t put a foot wrong this season and sit second on the log with 17 points from their 8 matches.
Burton Albion are 17th in the league table and are coming on the back of a three match winless run. At the same time, the narrow 1-0 loss at home to Burton is their first defeat since suffering back-to-back defeats at the start of the season. They took 2 wins and 3 draws on the way, but must be doing slightly better in their first season after promotion to the Championship.

Norwich City vs Burton Albion: Prediction
The Canaries steered to their four win in a row against Everton in the League Cup on Wednesday. And they solid for another scalp when they come against Burton on Saturday evening. Another reason is their 6 match unbeaten run at home in competitive matches, with the last 5 being wins.
While Burton are a side struggling after taking just 9 points from their 8 matches so far. Also they haven’t won a match on the road this season, which all points to a straight win for Norwich in this Championship clash.
Burton Albion have scored in every league game this season, except one. So I will be also backing my correct score prediction of a 2-1 win for the hosts.
Full Time Exact Score: 2-1 for Norwich City at 8.00 (7/1).
