Norwich vs Middlesbrough
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 3rd February 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Canary Road (Norwich).
Norwich looks like a team which managed to stabilize their performances. The team has all the ingredients for a good campaign but yet Farke’s boys failed again and again to perform consistently. Lately though the team looks more stable and conceded just a single defeat in 7 games climbing up to 13th place in the table.
Last round the Canaries took a surprise victory over Brentford on the road. Maddison stunned Brentford early and Norwich showed a good defensive work to deny their hosts. The game ended with a minimal victory for the visitors claiming priceless 3 points.
Middlesbrough are still inches away from the play-offs. The team plays well but inconsistency marks their whole season. From a fantastic victory to a disappointing defeat and back. That’s the path Boro have been following this season. Last round they drew against Wednesday at home. The team didn’t play particularly well and the goalless draw was probably a likely result. Things on the road though are looking better with the team picking 3 straight victories.
Norwich vs Middlesbrough: Head-to-head
- Norwich have seen both teams on the score sheet in their last 6 home games

Norwich vs Middlesbrough: Predictions
Boro have more to play in this game than Norwich. The team has little room for mistakes but their inconsistency always speaks the opposite. Norwich are an improved side of late but tend to concede easy goals. Both teams to score looks to offer a good value here as for a full time result the game may go in any favour.
