Norwich City vs Burnley Prediction and Betting Tips
Norwich City face a difficult task of stopping the in-form Burnley when they host the runaway leaders in a league game on Saturday.
Norwich clinched a 4-2 win over Coventry City last time out in the Championship. They sped to a three-goal lead through Onel Hernandez, Josh Sargent and a Michael Rose own goal before the half-hour, while Kieran Dowell added a fourth goal midway through the second half.
It was the second four-goal game in a row for Norwich City, who had also managed a 4-0 win over Preston North End in the last game. They are now just a point away from the playoff spots and that resurgence could be credited to manager David Wagner’s arrival in January.
With the last two victories having been played away, it will be the new manager’s job to improve Norwich City’s fortunes at home. The Canary Islands are without a win in their last five league games, suffering three defeats in the process.
Not only are Burnley poised for automatic promotion, they appear to be heading towards the league title. They have won nine of their last ten games in the league and are currently five points clear at the top of the table.
The Clarets travel to Carrow Road after a surprise 0-0 draw at Ipswich Town from League One in the FA Cup fourth round. However, their previous league game was a 2-1 win at West Brom and they will be confident of getting back to winning ways quickly.
Burnley has also been a solid traveler this season and has only been beaten twice on the road so far. Vincent Kompany’s men have won four of their last five away league games, with victories over Sunderland and QPR in that run.
