Norwich City faces Southampton at the Carrow Road in a game from the 30th round of the Premier League
Norwich City faces Southampton at the Carrow Road in a game from the 30th round of the Premier League. Our value football predictions are about to follow.
For Norwich City this looks like “all or nothing” kind of a moment. The Canaries are at the bottom of the Premier League with just 21 points, being on 6 points behind the 17th Watford. This means that Daniel Farke’s team still can survive, but only if Norwich really improve the way they perform. At this moment their consistency (or the lack of it) would hardly allow them to catch up with the other.
Last week Norwich City suffered a 18th loss for the season. The Canaries had to face Sheffield United at the Bramall Lane and they lost the game with 0-1. Norwich City have conceded 52 goals this season and there’s just one team which defense is worse than theirs – Aston Villa.
Southampton are playing to secure their survival in the league. Right now the Saints are 14th in the table with 34 points, thanks to their revival in the last few months. Southampton’s situation was looking hopeless, but the manager Ralph Hassenhuttl successfully transformed his team and made it win points again.
This particular moment though is nt very good for Southampton. In their last five games in the league Southampton lost four times, which is probably not the type of performance Hassenhuttl wants to see.
Last week Southampton hosted Newcastle United at the St. Mary’s, but suffered a 0-1 defeat. Clearly there’s a lot of the Saints to improve right now, it’s obvious from their recent results.
In these value football predictions we think both Norwich City and Southampton are not on their highest levels, so for them this game is a chance to improve. But can they? This fixture will show us.
