Watford vs Norwich Prediction & Match Preview

Watford vs Norwich Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Tuesday, 7 July 2020. Kick-off 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET at the Vicarage Road.

The Canaries are as good as gone from the league at the moment. Not only are they placed dead-last in the table, but with just five match-days remaining, they have a huge deficit to overcome in order to avoid the boot. Suffice it to say, they will be taking part in the Championship in 2020-21.

For the Hornets, currently placed 17th in the table, with a one-point lead over the cut-off, this match-up seems a golden opportunity to build some safety buffer. If they do not make use of this chance, they could run into some serious trouble later.

Considering the absolutely terrible run of Daniel Farke’s men on the road, their inferior h2h record against this rival, and the comparatively impressive run of Nigel Pearson’s men at home – it’s deduced that Watford will post the three points this Tuesday.

Watford vs Norwich: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The reverse fixture saw Hornets winning with a 0-2 scoreline on the road.
  • Nine of the preceding fourteen wins had gone to this team as well.
  • They had also kept clean sheets in two of the previous three fixtures.
  • Six of the former eight wins at this venue had gone to the home team.
  • Eight of the preceding eleven encounters at this stadium saw the home team scoring two or more goals.

Watford vs Norwich: Prediction

Pearson’s men were defeated 3-0 on the road the last match-day, by Chelsea. Despite the loss, it should be noted that it had come against one of the best in the league. In the meantime, Farke’s men lost 0-1 at home the past game week, against Brighton.

By the looks of things, the Hornets have the upper hand. The reason being, their counterparts are the absolute worst team in the league. In fact, the Canaries are placed 20th in a league of 20, have conceded the most number of goals, and have scored the least.

They also need to make up a deficit of seven points to avoid relegation, with just a total of fifteen points left to play for. On top of that, they are also an inexperienced team, since they gained promotion just last summer.

In addition, they have had a single league win away from home this whole season, and it had come eight months back. Moreover, they have scored a total of six away goals in the PL this campaign till now. Finally, the Hornets were unbeaten in eight of their past ten appearances at home.

Taking into account these observations, expect the desperate Watford to deliver the three points against this minnow.
