Rotherham United vs Norwich City
English Championship
Date: Saturday, 17 October 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: AESSEAL New York Stadium.

Round five of English Championship is on this weekend and one of the most interesting games is taking place in Rotherham where Millers welcome Norwich City.

The Canaries and their fans had much higher expectations from the new campaign, but results overall has been huge disappointment. And they are much closer to the relegation zone than to top six zone after collecting only four points from four games.

Is it time for tides to turn? They definitely have the quality needed to compete with other top tier teams.

Rotherham shouldn’t be underestimated despite the fact they just returned to tier two league. Bookies are favouring visitors at 2.00 odds.

Rotherham vs Norwich Head-to-head

Whenever Rotherham and Norwich met in the last decade, goals were guaranteed. It was impossible to imagine their duels without a lot of action and drama.

For example, eleven out of last twelve encounters have ended either with BTTS or Over 2.5 FT. The combo of these two markets happened in ten occasions!

There was total of 14 games between them so far. Norwich City are dominating in terms of wins 6 to 1, scoring 26 and conceding 17 goals. The only time they were defeated was at this stadium in 2017.

Rotherham vs Norwich Prediction

It is true that Norwich’s start should have been much better, but also they were extremely unlucky in a couple occasions.

The team lost matches to Derby County and AFC Bournemouth despite having four or five great goal opportunities, dominating the midfield and creating a lot of space.

The only victory of the season so far came on the road against Huddersfield Town, while duel against Preston at home ended without a winner 2-2. Once again, team leader is Finnish striker Teemu Pukki.

We feel it is finally time for Canaries to shine and win this encounter.

Rotherham might be slightly ahead in terms of points, but they faced weaker opponents so far. Millers scored in three out of four games so far though, so consider backing a lot of goals as well.

Rotherham vs Norwich Betting Tips

  • Away win @ 2.00
  • Both teams to score & Over 2.5 FT @ 2.25.
