Watford vs Norwich City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 26 December 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Vicarage Road (Watford).
With the new gaffer in the dugout, Watford will look to make a comeback in the league. Xisco has a huge step up from Georgia’s Erovnuli Liga to the championship. The host has a two-game winless run in the campaign, following a 2-0 loss on the road against Huddersfield last time out in the schedule.
Norwich City is all determined to get promoted to the PL this season. Their relegation was a huge blow, but they have fought well to keep the top-spot intact in the championship until now. They will visit on the back of a 2-0 win at home against the likes of Cardiff City in the league.

Watford vs Norwich City Prediction
Watford enjoys the ground advantage and has lost only one of their last five home matches in the championship. However, keeping Norwich at bay is easier said than done. With the new coach, it is not sure what changes happen in the Hornet’s playing eleven and tactics.
The Canaries are on a five-game winning streak and have a decent form on the road. Besides, the experience from the Premier League also gives them a slight edge over the home team. So, the double chance favoring Norwich City will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
Furthermore, the traveling side has scored at least 2 goals each in their last five Championship fixtures in their schedule as of late. With this scoring spree, we can expect a couple of goals in the clash at Vicarage Road too. So, the tip for over 1.5 goals will come in handy from the goals area to yield decent returns.
Watford vs Norwich City Betting tips
