Market: Norwich City to score over 1.5 goals
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Smelling a golden chance to extend on their purple patch this weekend, a high-flying Norwich will make the trip to Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday lunchtime.
Starting with the hosts, while Sheffield Wednesday had hoped they managed to turn a real corner when heading into February, The Owls find themselves in the midst of a real Championship nightmare. After getting hit with a points deduction last summer, new boss Darren Moore knows he is an incredibly uphill battle on his hands. Still sat seven points adrift of finding a route out of the relegation zone and with the games starting to tick away, they were last seen putting in another concerning display away at Reading. Eventually hit with a 3-0 drumming against the play-off contenders, the former Doncaster boss now finds his squad in the midst of a six-match losing run, a run that stems back to February 9th. With a growing reputation for their issues at the back and now shipping at a trio of strikes in three of their last four Championship matchups, The Owls should face another stern test at Hillsborough this weekend.
As for the visitors, while Sheffield Wednesday might be in the midst of a real crisis, Norwich appear to be cruising their way to an immediate Premier League return. Gaining a string of plaudits despite losing their top-flight status last season, Daniel Farke’s men are enjoying quite the Championship purple patch. Skyrocketing their way to the top of the table and still boosted by that 1-0 win against fellow promotion contenders Bretford earlier in the month, The Yellows were also last seen putting in another thumping display. Eventually landing a 3-0 romp against Luton on home soil, Norwich have won each of their last seven straight second-tier contests. Smelling what is a golden chance on their travels this weekend and with leading marksman Teemu Pukki enjoying a free-scoring run, it’s well worth keeping an eye out for Farke’s high-flyers on Sunday lunchtime.
