Norwich City vs Sheffield United
Date: Saturday, 26th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).
A high profile match in the Championship is set to take place this Saturday. Two teams from the top 5 of the table will battle it out for supremacy at Carrow Road.
The impressive 52 goals they scored till now has been the reason why Norwich are second in the league table. Just a point separates them from the top spot and some luck would send them there after this match-day.
From their last 5 competitive matches, only one was a victory. Two of those 5 matches were lost and they did not have a clean sheet in any of them too. In the last 5 home matches, they won and lost 2 games each, which will seriously affect their title hopes. On 6 of their previous 7 matches in front of their home fans, they scored 3 or more goals but conceded in all those 7 games as well.
Sheffield is also in contention for an automatic promotion spot to the Premier League. They are just 3 points away from their opponents for Saturday. Also, their recent performance is much better compared to the latter. They have 3 wins and 2 losses in their last 5 competitive games across England. Three of those 5 matches had less than 2.5 goals and all those finished 1-0 as well.
A 5 match unbeaten run that included 3 wins in away games ended with the defeat to Swansea. That was their first away loss in over 2 months. Three of those last 5 traveling games had less than 2.5 goals and they scored in 8 of their last 10 away fixtures as well.
The Canaries have great home support which may prove to be the difference in this upcoming match.
