Norwich City vs Swansea City

Norwich City return to Carrow Road this Friday looking to defend their position at the top of the Championship table against Swansea City. The Canaries are having a superb season under Daniel Farke and have put themselves in a good position to finish strongly. Graham Potter’s men find themselves down in 14th after a lacklustre season and will have their work cut out for them in this fixture. When these sides met at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea put up little resistance to their opponent’s attack and ended up losing 4-1.

Daniel Farke will have little to complain about this season, as his Norwich City side have been flying high in the Championship. They currently sit in first place after 30 games played and hold a two-point lead over Leeds United who sits down in second. The Canaries have lost just one of their last five games which come three games ago and since then have secured three wins on the bounce. Farke’s most recent win came against Millwall who they beat 3-1. To boost their confidence, Norwich returns to their home ground where they are unbeaten in their last four. SkyBet has the hosts to win priced at 8/11.

The Canaries have recently overtaken West Brom as the highest scoring side in the table, as they now sit on 71 goals scored compared to West Brom’s 67. Teemu Pukki is by far his sides highest scoring player with 25 goals this season. The next highest scoring player at the club is Jordan Rhodes with nine goals. You can back Pukki to score anytime, with Betway for a price of 10/11. All five of Norwich’s last five games have seen over 3.5 goals scored and if you fancy this to happen again then Bet365 are offering odds of 7/4.

Swansea City’s performances this season have been far from what they are capable of, as they enter the 35th game sat down in 14th. The Championship table remains fairly compacted and the Swans sit just seven points off the pace of the top six. Swansea have failed to string together any positive results recently, with each of their last three wins followed by a defeat. Their latest fixture saw them secure three points against Bolton Wanderers, who they beat 2-0. You can back the Welsh side to secure the win with SkyBet at a price of 7/2.

Both of Swansea City’s last two defeats have come whilst playing as the home side and with Norwich as their next opponents, a win looks unlikely. Swansea have scored in all of their last five games and with Norwich prone to conceding the odd goal, a BTTS market sounds like a banker. Bet365 has both teams to score priced at 8/11. Oliver McBurnie has bagged 18 goals for his side this season and is the favourite player for Swansea to bag a goal. Betway has odds of 2/1 for the forward to score anytime.
