Norwich City vs Birmingham City tips
Norwich City sit four points off the top spot in third place in the Championship, while their opponents on Friday night, Birmingham City, are two places and four points off the top six and could really do with the three points. The form of both sides has dipped over recent weeks with the hosts winless in their last five league and cup games, and Birmingham failing to win any of their last four in all competitions. There isn’t much between these two clubs in the form guide and neither side can claim to be playing well at this moment in time, but with two wins, two draws, and two defeats from their last six matches Birmingham City are the form favourites. Norwich have managed just the one win, three draws, and two defeats from their last six matches and need to end their winless run if they are to continue to challenge for automatic promotion. Finland international Pukki top scores for the hosts with fifteen goals in this seasons Championship, while Che Adams has netted thirteen in the league for the visitors. I’m confident that both teams will score in Friday’s match, and have backed Norwich City to claim a narrow 2-1 win. Both teams have scored in four of Norwich’s last five and two of Birmingham’s last three matches. Norwich have won tree of the last four meetings between these two clubs, and in August the pair drew 2-2 at St. Andrew’s in their reverse league fixture.
Norwich City vs Birmingham City tips
The two sides have not had the best of runs in recent times; Norwich is the poorest in form going to this game, having not won any game this year as well as the last two last year. They are out of the FA Cup and having also earlier exited the League Cup, they can only vie for promotion, which means they should put all their energies there. However, a run of five winless matches isn’t the form they’d like to take here. Norwich have drawn three and lost two of their last five matches. While they have been scoring regularly, the biggest undoing for Norwich has been a frail defence. Among the top 11 sides in the Championship, they are the joint highest conceders at 35 but they are the second best scorers among the top 11, with 49 goals. In seven of the last 10 of Norwich’s matches, both sides have scored. They will be seeking a first home win in four matches after losing the last two and drawing the other. On the other hand, Birmingham have gone winless in four matches and though they head to this game with a better form, they don’t seem to hold much promise with a run of four wins in their last 15 away matches. In the last 11 matches between the two sides, Birmingham have won just one and in the last four, Norwich are unbeaten. However, in the 47 meetings between the two, Norwich have 18 wins and Birmingham 17.
