Norwich City vs Huddersfield Town
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 6 April 2021
Kick-off at 18:45 UK/ 19:45 CET
Venue: Carrow Road.
With just seven match-days remaining, the Canaries are at the top of the table with a lead of six points over the second-placed Watford, and an envious lead of 15 points over the third-placed Brentford.
As such, not only do they have a huge chance to become champions of the league, but more importantly, they are favorites to make it to the Premier League, since the top two teams at the end of the season will secure direct promotion.
The fact that they had been relegated from the top flight just at end of the last season was a major factor in their domination all through this campaign.
In that year on the top, they had the opportunity to lock horns with some of the best teams in the world, and that too under harsh pressure.
Meanwhile, the Terriers are one of the weakest in the English second division. As of now, they are on a stretch of bad performances, and they are placed just 18th in a table of 24.
Moreover, they also have an inferior h2h record against this rival in the past several years.
For the reasons, expect Norwich to continue on their course of the title, with another win this Tuesday.
Norwich vs Huddersfield: Head-to-head (h2h)

Norwich vs Huddersfield Prediction
The Canaries recorded a 1-1 draw the last match-day, against Preston. In the meantime, Carlos Corberan’s men registered a 1-1 draw the past game week, against Brentford.
Going on, Farke’s men are the potential champions of the competition, and they are on an eleven-game unbeaten streak as well, nine of which were wins. Moreover, they were also unbeaten in 33 of their former 37 overall fixtures.
They are also on an 18-game unbeaten run at home, and have lost here just once since July of 2020.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 15 of their past 17 overall matches, and they have a single win to their name on the road since October of 2020.
In addition, the Canaries also have a terrific h2h record against this foe over the years, and particularly so at this stadium.
For the reasons, expect Norwich to deliver a winning performance this Tuesday. In the process, count on them to score in plenty as well against this struggling rival.
