Blackburn will be looking for a chance to chalk up its first win of the season when it heads to Norwich on Saturday to take on Premiership newcomers, Norwich City.
Norwich and Blackburn have played each other just six times since 2000. Blackburn has won three of these matches, and the other three ended in draws. Blackburn did not achieve a single away win during this period.
Blackburn’s last trip to Norwich produced a 1-1 draw.
Norwich City is in good form coming into this match, with three wins, a draw and a single loss helping the club to maintain an impressive 8th place on the Premiership league table.
Norwich is in good form up front, with 8 goals scored in five games. Defence needs to tighten up, with 6 goals conceded in the same period of time.
Blackburn will be feeling slightly more confident ahead of this fixture, after pulling off a 4-3 win over Newcastle in the League Cup this week. That result left Blackburn with two wins, two losses and a single draw to show for its last five matches.
Blackburn has scored a decent enough haul of goals in its last five games, with 9 goals put away. Defence is the side’s Achilles’ heel with 10 goals conceded in the same period.
Norwich City won’t be quaking in their boots at the thought of hosting the bottom-of-the-table Blackburn.
This match should go comfortably to the home side, although they’ll need to be aware of complacency, as Blackburn has the strike force to put the game beyond them.
Nevertheless we back the home team for this fixture, and our Norwich City vs Blackburn Rovers betting tip is to back the home side at the best odds you can find.
