Prediction and odds for the game: Norwich (7/2) v Leicester (8/11)

We are backing the away win

When: Friday 28th February 2020, Kick-off 8 PM

Where: Carrow Road

On Friday night, struggling Norwich host Leicester at Carrow Road in the Premier League, as the home side look to keep alive their slim chances of surviving the drop.

Norwich

The Canaries are bottom of the Premier League table, eight points from safety in the English top-flight. Daniel Farke’s team has failed to win in four Premier League games, having suffered three defeats and collecting one draw. Last time out the team from Norfolk suffered a 3-0 defeat ay Wolves, which was their second straight league defeat.

The home side has struggled for Premier League goals of late, failing to score in four of their last six top-flight games, including their last three league outings.

Norwich have won just one of their last ten home games in the Premier League. However, a 1-0 defeat in their last home match in the top-flight against Liverpool ended a three-game unbeaten run on home soil.

The Canaries have struggled defensively on home soil in the Premier League of late, having conceded at least two goals in nine of their last 12 top-flight matches.

Leicester

The Foxes recent league form has dipped slightly in recent weeks as Brendan Rodgers team have won just one win in their last six Premier League games. Last time out, the home side suffered a 1-0 home defeat against Manchester City.

Despite their recent poor form, Leicester are still third-place in the English top-flight table. They are seven points behind second-place Manchester City and nine points clear of fifth-place Manchester United. The team from the Midlands will be confident of holding on to a Champions League spot.

The Foxes recent form may have slipped in the top-flight, but their recent league matches have been high-scoring. In fact, eight of their last ten Premier League games have produced over 2.5 goals.

Rodgers’ team have an inconsistent recent away record in the English top-flight. However, they have won six of their last nine matches on their travels in the Premier League. Their recent away matches have been high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in eight of their last ten matches on their travels in the Premier League.

Conclusion

Both teams are in poor form heading into this clash. However, Leicester have far more quality and that will shine through sooner rather than later. We are backing the Foxes to get back to winning way in this clash. We are also taking a punt on the under 2.5 goals scored, as neither team’s recent league matches have produced prolific matches.

Verdict: We are backing the away win at odds of 8/11 and/or the under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 6/5. (All odds are taken from Bet365).
