Norwich vs Brighton Prediction & Analysis
Norwich were held to a goalless draw the last match-day on the road by Burnley. In the meantime, Brighton were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Arsenal.
Going on, Norwich had lost seven of their previous nine fixtures, and their only win this season in any competition had come against Bournemouth – who are from the lower division.
And barring this game against Bournemouth, the team has lost all of their home appearances in 2021-22, and had conceded twice or more in all of these match-ups.
On the other hand, their counterparts are placed sixth in the table, above the likes of Arsenal, Leicester, Tottenham etc. They are trailing just two points below the first position, and only Chelsea and Manchester City have conceded fewer goals than them this season.
As such, brave punters could go for the Brighton to Win to Nil wager at 3.40 odd.
Anyhow, Norwich are massive underdogs this Saturday at the Carrow Road.
