West Bromwich Albion vs Norwich
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 12th January 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns (West Bromwich).
Two of the most attack-minded teams in the Championship go against each other this weekend. Last time these sides faced off, it was a football festival and fans had the chance to witness seven goals in the ninety minutes. This time around too, the story will not be that much different.
Both teams are targeting automatic qualification to the Premier League and are direct competitors for the only two spots. The rivalry will be intense, and quite easily, this tie will be the most anticipated one this weekend, and maybe one of the most-waited-for match for the whole season.
West Brom is the second-best team at home in the Championship, while Norwich is the best bunch on the road.

West Brom vs Norwich: Prediction
A win in this match would be hugely beneficial for either of the teams. Not only will they attain some distance over their rival, but would also have the chance to climb to the top as just five points separate the top four teams.
Expect both parties to get going from the first minute itself. The Throstles are the team with the second-best home record in the entire league and have scored more goals than any other team at home. On the other hand, Norwich is the best team on the road, and only Leeds have scored more away goals than the team.
The Baggies have scored the most number of goals in the whole league. The Yellows are just behind them, being the team with the third-highest number of goals.
We really do have a cracker of a match at hand.
Both teams will score in this game. Expect them to complete this task in the first 45 minutes itself, and in all likelihood, there will be more than 2.5 goals in the tie.
