Norwich City vs Coventry City
English FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021
Kick-Off at 12.00 UK
Venue: Carrow Road, Norwich.
We are half way through this season’s edition of English Championship and Norwich City are deservedly holding the top of the table after winning 47 points.
The Canaries can take a break from divisional obligations, at least for a couple of days and have premiere appearance in the FA Cup this season. They will welcome another tier two side Coventry City which has finally ended a draught and won a match last weekend against Millwall.
Still, the odds are going in favour of hosts who are currently priced at 1.72 rate to win the match. The main question here is if Daniel Farke is going to use all his best players on Saturday or maybe decide to preserve some fitness. All in all, encounter at Carrow Road should be exciting.
