Norwich City vs Sheffield Wednesday
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 5 December 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Carrow Road.
The Canaries are the toppers of the table at the moment, and have been the best team in the competition by a mile this season. They were relegated from the top flight just at the end of the last campaign, and so far they have shown strong indication that they are determined to get back there.
However, the last two match-days have been tough for the team, and they have dropped points. Luckily, their nearest competitors suffered the same fate in the meanwhile, and that really prevented Daniel Farke’s men being replaced from the top.
Still, they cannot under-perform going on and hope for mere luck to bail them out. Moreover, they need to get back to their winning track, and regain their lost confidence as well.
This weekend, they have the perfect opportunity for it, as they are pitted against possibly one of the worst teams in the whole league.
The Owls are placed 23rd in the table, and they have a total of just three wins all through this campaign. Also, only two teams have scored fewer goals them so far as well.
Likely, expect Norwich to deliver the better performance this Saturday at the Carrow Road.
Norwich vs Sheffield Wednesday: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 2-2 draw.
- The previous five games on the trot had three or more goals.

- Eight of the former twelve wins at this stadium had gone to the hosts.
- Since 2009, not once have the hosts lost at this venue.
Norwich vs Sheffield Wednesday: Prediction
The Canaries lost 3-1 on the road the last match-day, against Luton. In the meantime, Tony Pulis’s men were held to a 1-1 draw at home the past game week, by Reading.
Going on, Farke’s men were unbeaten in ten of their preceding eleven overall games, and they had recorded two separate three-match winning streaks in the process.
At home, they have conceded a total of two goals from the last five appearances, and have lost just once in this campaign as well.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 13 of their preceding 15 overall fixtures, and they had failed to score in six of their former nine match-ups. On the road, they had lost five of their past seven trips, and have scored a total of just two goals during this stretch.
By all means, expect toppers Norwich to make the most of this opportunity and deliver a flawless performance this weekend.
