Sheffield United vs Norwich City
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 18th August 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane (Sheffield).
Sheffield United hosts winless Norwich City searching for their second victory this season. The game looks promising as last year both sides won their visits against each other.
Sheffield United fell a bit short last season for their playoff bid and wanted to put things right this time. Still The Blades had a difficult start of the campaign losing their opening 2 fixtures from Swansea and Middlesbrough.
Following the two disappointing results United managed to bounce back up in their visit against QPR.
It didn’t come easy though as the team went behind early on and had to make a complete turnaround. Later The Blades took another blow losing to Hull city in the Carabao Cup.
Norwich wanted to improve from last season but so far the team is far from impressive.
Farke’s boys failed to impress in both their games picking just a single point. The teams weakness from last season has come up again – 5 goals conceded in 2 games is more than the team’s offensive line can compensate.
On the bright side The Canaries managed to get through in the Carabao Cup. The team took a 3-1 victory over lower league side Stevenage. The victory didn’t come easy as the score was 1-1 all the way up until 83rd minute.
