With one matchday left, Daniel Farke’s Norwich City sit atop the English Football League, having confirmed their promotion to top-flight English football – the Premier League – against Balckburn Rovers last weekend. Yet in their quest to break the glass ceiling and acquire the Championship title, there is one final obstacle that lies in the way of ultimate success: Aston Villa.
With so much drama, controversy and action already present in this topsy-turvy season, our Championship predictions expect a tight game to unfold at the Villa Park.
And while the home side may not have much to play for, the Villans could inflict misery upon their opponents with a draw, giving title-contenders Sheffield United a golden opportunity to usurp Farke’s men.
Aston Villa vs Norwich City Predictions
Dean Smith’s men are the in-form team in the Championship, and our Aston Villa vs Norwich City predictions and betting tips expect them to cause the Canaries plenty of defensive mishaps.
With ten wins a row for the Claret and Blues setting a new club record, Marcelo Bielsa’s Leed’s United were just about able to snub out their hot streak last weekend and had to graft to come away from the game with a point.
Given that Farke’s men have won their last five games in this tie on home turf, a victory and upset seem to be on the cards, and Norwich City’s title hopes in the mud.
The man leading the goal-scoring charge for Aston Villa all season has been Tammy Abraham. The young Englishman has been the source of goals all season, and enough to rival the likes of Teemu Pukki – the man who lit up the Championship this season.
The Canaries would not have reached the heights they have this season without the 29-year-old netting week in and out, and he could be their route to the title.
Both teams come into the tie with all their star players in good health, which is why our Aston Villa vs Norwich City predictions expect it to be a tight game.
Yet despite this, Villa do not possess the most steely central defensive pairing and could be put to the test against a more counterattacking Norwich City offence.
All in all, given that both sides will want to finish the season strongly, and with all the big-name players on the pitch, our betting tipsters see this as the biggest game ever to take place on the final day of the Championship.
