Stoke vs Norwich
England – Championship
Date: Monday, 22nd April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Bet365 Stadium (Stoke on Trent).
Norwich has blasted their opposition away all through the season and has been a major favorite to take the league crown for quite some time. More than the title, what would motivate them even better would be the direct-promotion spot that they would be allotted at the end of the season. The team has a seven-point lead as far as their direct promotion is concerned, and a four-point safety for the title.
Stoke has been putting in mild, and boring draws consistently for quite some time. They have shown a tendency to close down the attacking threats against most teams, but with Norwich on the other side, their resolve would be greatly tested.

Stoke vs Norwich Prediction
Norwich is the potential champion of the league, and with just four games remaining, they need to hold on to their four-point lead at the top. For their direct promotion to the Premier League to stay safe, they will have to keep a tab on the seven-point buffer.
The team has been the best of all the 24 in contention, on several accounts. They have scored the most number of goals, and are the best team on the road by a mile. They have also recorded the most number of away goals and conceded the least away from home.
Going on, they have lost just two matches on the road all through the 2018-19 Championship. Against a practically safe Stoke, and who has not much objective or will left, to put in their whole heart behind the remaining games, the current-topper is clearly the favorite.
Count on them to record an easy win, as well as to open the scoring as well.
