League: English Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 1 January 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).
Norwich vs Crystal Palace: Norwich was seen as the worst side of the group, and for good reason. With Crystal Palace showing a true conviction in their last games, the hosts certainly have their work cut in this one.
Norwich recovered a point last week at home after managing to keep José Mourinho’s men 2-2. Although they took the lead twice in this match, the hosts could not keep their enemies at bay and succumbed to the goals of Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane in the second period.
Miserably, the home team is still looking for their first victory since the end of November. With only thirteen points in the bag to date, the Canaries have fallen to the bottom of the stairs.
On the other hand, Crystal Palace is much more compelling right now. Their last crash on the road saw them share the loot with Southampton in a 1-1 draw. At Selhurst Park, they defeated West Ham with a tight 2-1 record.
It should also be mentioned that visitors have only stumbled once in their last seven PL matches. In addition, the guests have recognized defeat in just four of their last ten outings, including three against camps that currently occupy the top ten.
However, even the house advantage has failed to save Norwich’s blush this season. They have lost in five of their last seven games here, and have not had more than two of twenty possible points.
Given that in his previous H2H meeting at Carrow Road, Crystal Palace was also seen securing bragging rights, Norwich’s chances of reaching the top certainly seem bleak.
However, the visiting contingent has been drawn in half of their last six matches. Since Norwich also scored in two of his last four games here, the safest clearance should be a double chance.
In addition, the hosts did not descend without fighting in front of the local crowd. Sixteen of the twenty-one goals for them so far come from their clashes here.
In addition, the last four games at this stadium have seen a total of three or more goals in the final scores.
Since your previous encounter with this enemy here was also a matter of high score, do not expect any shortage of goals on Wednesday.
