Norwich City takes on Swansea in a battle between two promoted sides this weekend. Both clubs have performed impressive this season, yet the loser of this fixture is likely to end the weekend in the bottom half of the league table.
Norwich City and Swansea have met just four times in the past decade. Swansea has won three of these matches, while one victory has gone the way of Norwich. Swansea has taken one away victory during this period.
Swansea’s last trip to Norwich City, in the 2010-11 Championship, ended in a 2-0 win for the home team.
After a bright start to the season, Norwich City has lost some momentum in its recent matches, taking two wins and three losses from its last five fixtures. Two of these losses were inflicted by top-of the table sides, with Norwich no match for Man United or Chelsea.
Norwich City is looking a bit flat up front, with 5 goals scored in five matches. The defence has fared poorly in trying to right the ship, letting in 8 goals during the same period.
Swansea has also been at the receiving end of losses to traditional top four teams, losing to Arsenal and Chelsea in the last five matches. The club’s remaining matches produced wins over Stoke and WBA and a draw against Sunderland.
Swansea has scored 6 goals in five games, and has been held scoreless in three of these. Besides a heavy 4-1 defeat to Chelsea, the Swansea defence has been impressive, letting in just 1 goal in the remaining four matches.
Home advantage will shift the odds in Norwich’s favour, however, Swansea does seem more likely to produce a win in this match.
Given Norwich’s struggles up front, and poor defence, the disciplined Swansea defence has the potential to combine well with its unpredictable attack to put the win past the home team.
Our Norwich City vs Swansea betting tip is therefore to take the back bet on Swansea at the best odds on offer.
