Norwich vs Leicester Prediction & Betting tips
The 2019/20 football season is slowly but surely turning onto the home stretch. The 28th matchday is scheduled for the English Premier League this weekend. It will open again with a game on Friday evening.
Two teams face each other, their season couldn’t be more different. The bottom of the table Norwich receives the third in Leicester. In the Premier League tip category you can find the rest of the game previews for this weekend.
The canaries by Daniel Farke have been found continuously at the bottom of the table since matchday 19, the gap to the saving bank is currently seven points. Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes move in completely different spheres.
A look at the betting base table service shows that Leicester is currently in third place and therefore has the best chance of returning to the UEFA Champions League. But in the past few weeks, Leicester has not gone as desired, as there was only one win in six games.
Nevertheless, the betting base odds comparison shows that the guests are treated as a clear favorite. The game starts on Carrow Road on Friday evening at 20 p.m.
With the smallest budget, promoted Norwich City entered the new season and thereupon also avoided expensive new signings. The tough season and the constant relegation battle is therefore not a surprise for those responsible for the club. This is also one of the reasons why coach Daniel Farke continues to trust the club’s management. The descent takes on more and more concrete forms. The gap to the saving bank is already seven points.
There is no improvement in sight, because the offensive surrounding the ex-Schalke Teemu Pukki (eleven goals this season) has been suffering from a load inhibition for weeks. In the last three league games, the Farke-Elf had no own goal. Previously, there was a Pukki goal from the ominous point in the 1-2 loss to Tottenham and the 1-0 victory over AFC Bournemouth.
The table game’s last hit from the game actually dates from New Year’s Day. Since the 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace, the canaries have not been out of the game. Unsurprisingly, the Farke team had the worst “shot conversion” – only 24 of the 312 shots on goal this season found their way into the opposing body.
Friday is the most beautiful day of the week for many workers, after all it rings in the weekend and with it football in abundance. For Norwich City players, Friday isn’t necessarily a day to enjoy playing in the Premier League. So far there have only been three games of the Canaries in the English Football House on Friday, but Norwich City has never been able to celebrate a point win.
In the 1992/93 season, the team slipped into a 1: 5 debacle against Tottenham. This season the Farke team opened against Liverpool on Friday night and had to surrender 1-4 despite their courageous performance.
The third Friday game in the PL history of the canaries took place in November, with a 0-2 defeat in the basement duel with Watford.
Regardless of Manchester City’s possible suspension for the UEFA Champions League, head coach Brendan Rodgers’ team has the best chance of getting a premier class ticket. The direct duel for the vice championship was just lost last weekend against the Citizens, but the lead to fifth is still comfortable with nine points.
Even the latest deformity is irrelevant. Leicester City have suffered a total of seven Premier League losses this season. Three of these seven defeats were in the recent six games to cope with. During this period, the third in the table cheered only a 4-1 home win against West Ham United. Otherwise there were two draws (Chelsea and Wolverhampton) and defeats against Southampton, Burnley and most recently Manchester City.
One reason for this is the inhibition of loading on the offensive. After Vardy & Co. had thrilled with spectacular offensive football at the beginning of the season, the team has recently failed to score twice in a row. In comparison, there were previously only two games without a goal in cross-season 24 Premier League games.
The jam is also easy to explain using the example of Jamie Vardy. The English team striker tops the scorer list with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with 17 goals this season. Quite surprising, because the last Vardy hit was on December 21 of last year. In the last seven games (he also missed two due to injury), Vardy has failed to score.
