Chelsea vs Norwich Prediction & Betting tips
The descent from Norwich City is sealed! Only a year after the sensational promotion to the Premier League, the canaries must definitely make their way back to the second division at the end of this season. Before that, the team of German trainer Daniel Farke still has three games in which they at least want to say goodbye to the upper house.
Before the game on Tuesday night between Chelsea and Norwich, where the odds of the best bookmakers clearly move towards the home side for understandable reasons, it can be doubted whether the taillight will be able to beat the blues both mentally and qualitatively to annoy.
The Yellow-Greens recently presented themselves very disappointing, conceded six defeats in six Premier League games after the restart and also had to concede a total of 16 goals. It is therefore no wonder that the popular prognosis towards a Lampard-Elf’s victory against Chelsea and Norwich fails.
The Londoners are under pressure after the bitter Sheffield bankruptcy of the weekend and urgently need a three in the fight for the Champions League ranks. After the disgrace, the team will be on Saturday for rehabilitation and will try everything to achieve a sovereign success at Stamford Bridge. A corresponding victory with up to three goals difference seems to be possible.
Does Chelsea get Kai Havertz or not? After the blues were able to sign Timo Werner a few weeks ago, the probably most promising German youngster Havertz should be on the list of Londoners. A transfer to the English capital would only make sense for the Leverkusen professional if the Lampard team qualified for the Champions League.
The way there could indeed prove to be very rocky on the remaining three game days. After the bitter 0-3 loss at the weekend at Sheffield United, Chelsea are in danger of falling to fourth place in the event of a ManUtd victory on Monday evening. With Wolverhampton and Leicester also lurking within striking distance, the FA Cup semi-finalists should at best no longer allow themselves to slip.
The home game on Tuesday evening against the relegated taillight is a “must-win”. Before the Chelsea vs Norwich match, bookmakers hit the same notch according to their odds. From a betting perspective, the only question is how this odds can be boosted.
This is where handicap comes into play in our eyes. Not only does the league’s shooting gallery travel to Stamford Bridge, justifying a tip for a high win between Chelsea and Norwich, but also the recent CFC impressions in their own stadium. The only two home games after the restart were victorious against ManCity (2-1) and Watford (3-0). In five of six games after the compulsory break, the Londoners scored at least two goals.
It is quite possible that this yield can still be increased on Tuesday, especially since the team is in the mood for reparation after the clap at the blades and has certainly been shown once again by the team of coaches what it is all about. A concentrated performance can therefore be assumed. Personnel, it looks good with the current third place. All service providers are operational.
In this country, Norwich is often compared to Paderborn due to the recent season. The East Westphalia had also surprisingly moved up to the Premier League, had retained a large part of their squad and, despite numerous defeats, was beginning to thrill with a confident, offensive style of play. In the end, however, both the sports club and the canaries paid too much tuition, so that in future they will have to start one floor below.
The biggest shortcoming of the team of coach Daniel Farke is and remains the defensive. 67 goals conceded the weakest value of all Premier League clubs. The only 26 goals scored in 35 games were ultimately one of the decisive reasons why the yellow-blue team have relegated to the saving bank three days before the end, 13 points behind (!) On the saving bank since last weekend.
It will be interesting to see now how the bottom of the table is tackling the remaining games. Carefree and with a “now more than ever” mentality or with hanging heads. The fact is that there will be a change in the team and some players will also play for new contracts, possibly even in the Premier League. Nevertheless, we are skeptical whether the team can go to their own performance limits and beyond.
Statistically, there is little hope of a coup in the capital anyway, because all six games after the restart were lost. The canaries scored a single goal, but received their 16. First division suitability looks different. The fact that the relegated team lost seven times with three or more goals in the course of the season supports our Chelsea vs. Norwich forecast for handicap home win (-2.5). Hanley, Zimmermann, Leitner and Byram have to watch injured.
