Norwich City vs Swansea City
Date: Friday, 8 March 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).
Swansea City managed to end a two-loss thread to an end on Saturday when they barely broke resistance from a nine-man Bolton Wanderers side at Liberty Stadium.
The Welsh outfit dominated the pitch from the get go, but they only sealed the victory within the final ten minutes of the affair.
The Swans now hold 14th position in the Championship ladder and they are seven points shy of promotional play-offs. However, reaching it is a massive longshot for Graham Potter’s men with as many as seven teams between them and sixth-placed Bristol City.
The Welsh side will have a very tough task to back up last weekend’s win as they travel to Norfolk to play section leaders Norwich City in the first game of Matchday No 36.
The Canaries are enjoying a stellar form with three straight wins which saw them bag ten goals in total past the likes of Bolton Wanderers, Bristol City and Millwall.
Norwich City vs Swansea City: Head-to-head
Norwich lead the head to head tie by a single win coming into 15th encounter with the Swans.
The Canaries took a demolishing 1-4 victory when teams met each other in the first part of the season on the Welsh soil.
Norwich City have a fine home record against Swansea City (4 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat in 7 matches at Carrow Road).
Norwich City vs Swansea City: Prediction
Swansea City lost three on the bounce away from home in the Championship. They allowed two or more goals in each of these defeats. We thus doubt they will be able to get hold of the free-scoring Norwich City side here.
The hosts found goals too easy to come of late. They also netted at least two in all of past four home outings in the league for a thread of three wins and a draw in last four matches at Carrow Road.
Both form and head to head tradition suggest the home win and we have to go for it at the odds of 1.66.
