Preston vs Norwich Prediction
With their recent losses accounting in the Premier League, Norwich would be looking to gaining back their form in the clash with Preston at Deepdale.
However, being a newly promoted team to the Premier League, Norwich has been struggling lately in the campaign. Evidently, Norwich has recorded only one win in their past ten away fixtures in the major competitions this season.
With Pukki in form, goals haven’t been a concern for Norwich. But the problems at back have cost them points in the league lately. If Preston can find a way to keep Pukki away from scoring, then the host has a chance of taking all three points from the clash.
Apart from that, Preston has managed to stay unbeaten in 7 of their last ten home matches in major competitions. Besides that, Preston will be playing on the mindset of hosting a Championship squad rather than like a Premier League contingent.
Hence, they will be on the back of their successful run against Norwich in the h2h clashes so far. Evidently, Preston has managed to dominate in their h2h encounters, especially at home.
As such, Preston does have a chance to defeat Norwich since they are playing at home with the home ground advantage. However, with Pukki, Norwich can turn the tables anytime.
Hence, it is safer to go with a double chance in the clash favoring the home team.
