Norwich City vs Sheffield Wednesday
Date: Friday, 19 April 2019
Kick-Off 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).
Norwich City will be looking to return to winning ways in the last game of the day on Good Friday when they play host to Sheffield Wednesday at Carrow Road. Table-toppers slipped-up in last two league rounds, playing back-to-back draws to relegation strugglers Millwall and Wigan Athletic. They are still healthy four points clear off second-placed Leeds United, but a potential failure here against Sheffield Wednesday could complicate their situation at the top of the standings.
The Canaries should welcome important midfielder Emiliano Buendia back to the starting line-up after the Argentinian was forced to skip last two ties due to suspension. However, returning to winning ways will not be an easy task at all for Daniel Farke’s men here as they are up against a strong outfit capable of beating anyone on their day.

Norwich City vs Sheffield Wednesday: Prediction
Steve Bruce has managed to turn Sheffield Wednesday’s fortunes around since taking charge back in February this year. The Owls may regret for not having him on the bench from the start of the season as they will likely be just points short of the promotional play-offs at the end of the campaign.
Sheffield Wednesday fell 1-0 to Leeds United last weekend. They lost only 2 of past 13 league games and they will no doubts be a tough nut to crack for the Canaries here.
The Owls will park the bus from the start of the affair. They have defensive strength to keep hold of Norwich’s forwards and we see a huge value in backing the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 2.10.
