Norwich City vs Middlesbrough
2018-19 English Championship
Date: Saturday 15th September 2018
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).
Both teams have spent large amounts of time in the Premier League and so two former top two tiers will be coming together on Saturday afternoon to chase all 3 points.
Norwich are in lowly 17th place having lost 3 of their last 5 games and have shown some naivety in their play alongside inconsistency which has already cost them this season. They are scoring goals and have 9 already which is decent but their back four have got off to a nightmare start and they have conceded 12 goals. Only one other team has let in more which is QPR with 13.
Norwich have only failed to score once in their last 5 games which was against all conquering Leeds, otherwise for goals they have a good record.
Middlesbrough are in 2nd place and have the same points as Leeds, only goal difference is separating the two teams. They are unbeaten this season scoring 9 goals but only conceding 2. Away from home it is interesting to note that they have conceded all of their goals in this fashion when they drew 2-2 against Millwall. And in fact they only have a 33% win rate on the road.
Norwich City vs Middlesbrough: Head to Head
- Last season this match finished 1-0 to Norwich.
- Middlesbrough have just 1 win at this ground this century.
- The last 4 games either home or away have been under 2.5 goals.
Norwich City vs Middlesbrough: Prediction
The away side are the favourites but they are not odds on and we think this is a great value price for them to win another game. They have been very strong in the league so far and we can also see them scoring at least 2 goals against this weak Norwich side.
The game could be a close one but Boro have a more commanding midfield and strikers that can finish this game off and they should be able to stick with Leeds at the top of the league for now.
Norwich City vs Middlesbrough: Bet Tips
Boro to beat Norwich at 2.50 (6/4)
