Norwich vs Cardiff
England – League Championship
Date: Saturday, 10 September 2016,
Kick-Off: 15:00 UK
Venue: Carrow Road, Norwich

Norwich City suffered their first defeat of the season in their trip to Birmingham City last round. With 2 wins and 2 draws the Canaries are currently 12th in the table at a 5-point gap from early leaders Huddersfield Town. It is not a bad start for Norwich, considering the unpredictability of the Championship, but they must be more consistent if they are to bounce back to Premier League by the end of the current season.

While Cardiff City managed just 1 win from their 5 matches so far and currently sit 17th in the league table. They draw in each of their two away matches this season which stretches their win-less run on the road to 7 matches carrying over from the end of last season. They are also out of the Capital One Cup after losing to Bristol Rovers.

Norwich vs Cardiff: Head-to-Head

The teams last met during the 2014/15 Championship season and Norwich won both legs on that occasion. A 3-2 win at home on January 2015 before a 4-2 win at Cardiff on September 2014.

The pair of wins put an end to Norwich’s 4 match win-less run against Cardiff as they drew 2 and lost 2.

Norwich City are undefeated in the last four home games against Cardiff with 2 wins and 2 draws. While Cardiff have won only once in their last 8 visits to the Carrow Road.

Norwich vs Cardiff: Prediction

Norwich City are a far better side than Cardiff and there is no reason why they would come out with a win here. This is also consolidated by the fact that Cardiff haven’t won in their last 7 away games and have won only once in their last 10 games on the road. Also Cardiff are without a win in their last four visits to Carrow Road and this time too, it must be no different.
