Norwich vs. Newcastle – preview and prediction

Norwich vs. Newcastle – Newcastle United host Norwich City at St James’ Park, looking to overcome injuries and a poor run of form to avoid the drop at the end of the season. Despite playing attractive football, Norwich have failed to win any points this season and look poised to return to the Championship after just one season in the Premier League.

Norwich City travel to Newcastle United in a last-ditch attempt to prevent relegation at the conclusion of the season. With 17 points from 24 games, Daniel Farke’s side are 6 points above the relegation zone and have an uphill battle to climb the ladder in the coming weeks.  While Steve Bruce has exceeded expectations since taking over at St James’ Park from Rafa Benitez, the Magpies have struggled with injuries and inconsistency this season and will be hoping to bounce back with a win against a team anchored to the bottom of the table.

Norwich City were looking for their first win since the Barclays Premier League began, and manager Chris Hughton outlined his team’s expectations ahead of the game. Hughton stated his team needs to be more deft and accurate in front of goal.

On the road, Norwich City have only one win and five points in 11 games this season. Newcastle, on the other side, has had a strong home record this season, with 19 points (5W 4D 3L) in 12 games. Norwich have kept only one clean sheet in their last 12 games in all competitions since their 2-0 win over Everton earlier in the season.

Norwich vs. Newcastle – Betting Analysis

Both teams have struggled recently, with only one win in their previous five Premier League games, but Norwich have been poor away from home this season, and it’s hard to see them taking three points. Both teams are now injury ravaged, therefore a draw is the most likely scenario, with both scoring.

Only Bournemouth (23) and Watford (21) have scored fewer league goals than Norwich and Newcastle (24 each), highlighting both sides’ goal-scoring struggles despite the fixture’s recent history.  Despite recent failures by both sides, goals have been a regular component of this match in the past. Teemu Pukki scored a hat-trick in the reverse encounter and will be expected to do so again.
