Norwich City vs Aston Villa
England League Championship
Date: Tuesday, 13th December, 2016.
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Carrow Road, Norwich.
Norwich City suffered yet another defeat when things were looking good at the Carrow Road. The 2-1 loss against an unlikely candidate have surprisingly came after they thrashed Brentford 5-0 to end a 5 match losing streak. The prolonged bad run has pushed Norwich to 9th in the league table, when they were really competing for an automatic qualification spot.
Aston Villa bounced back from a 2-0 defeat at Leeds by edging past Wigan Athletic by a solitary goal. They are side that has made quick improvements under the new manager Steve Bruce by picking up 5 wins from their last 8 games. The Villains are currently 13th in the league, but a win here could help them move towards the top half of the table.

Norwich City vs Aston Villa: Prediction
It is somewhat hard to trust Norwich City at the moment. They made an excellent start to the season, but the determination to win promotion seems to have completely diminished. Aston Villa on the other hand are still a work in progress. But they are a desperate bunch looking to make up for the lose ground after a poor start to the campaign. Their recent form is positive and on top of that they are a well-organized and hardworking unit. Coupled these with their success over Norwich in recent meetings, the visitors are poised to take away all three points on Wednesday night.
