Norwich vs Leicester Betting Predictions and Odds
Two teams face each other, their season couldn’t be more different. The bottom of the table Norwich receives the third in Leicester. In the Premier League tip category you can find the rest of the game previews for this weekend.
The canaries by Daniel Farke have been found continuously at the bottom of the table since matchday 19, the gap to the saving bank is currently seven points. Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes move in completely different spheres.
A look at the betting base table service shows that Leicester is currently in third place and therefore has the best chance of returning to the UEFA Champions League. But in the past few weeks, Leicester has not gone as desired, as there was only one win in six games.
Norwich – Statistics & current form
With the smallest budget, promoted Norwich City entered the new season and thereupon also avoided expensive new signings. The tough season and the constant relegation battle is therefore not a surprise for those responsible for the club. This is also one of the reasons why coach Daniel Farke continues to trust the club’s management. The descent takes on more and more concrete forms. The gap to the saving bank is already seven points.
The offensive suffers from jamming
There is no improvement in sight, because the offensive surrounding the ex-Schalke Teemu Pukki (eleven goals this season) has been suffering from a load inhibition for weeks. In the last three league games, the Farke-Elf had no own goal. Previously, there was a Pukki goal from the ominous point in the 1-2 loss to Tottenham and the 1-0 victory over AFC Bournemouth.
The table game’s last hit from the game actually dates from New Year’s Day. Since the 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace, the canaries have not been out of the game. Unsurprisingly, the Farke team had the worst “shot conversion” – only 24 of the 312 shots on goal this season found their way into the opposing body.
Friday in the Premier League – 0 points for the canaries
Friday is the most beautiful day of the week for many workers, after all it rings in the weekend and with it football in abundance. For Norwich City players, Friday isn’t necessarily a day to enjoy playing in the Premier League. So far there have only been three games of the Canaries in the English Football House on Friday, but Norwich City has never been able to celebrate a point win.
In the 1992/93 season, the team slipped into a 1: 5 debacle against Tottenham. This season the Farke team opened against Liverpool on Friday night and had to surrender 1-4 despite their courageous performance.
The third Friday game in the PL history of the canaries took place in November, with a 0-2 defeat in the basement duel with Watford. For the first point win on Friday evening odds between Norwich and Leicester City will be offered around 2.00 at the double chance 1X.
Probable lineup of Norwich:
↳ Krul – Lewis, Hanley, Godfrey, Aaron – Tettey, McLean – Cantwell, Duda, Rupp – Pukki

⚽️ 02/01/2020 – Newcastle vs. Norwich City 0-0 (Premier League)

Leicester – Statistics & current form
Regardless of Manchester City’s possible suspension for the UEFA Champions League, head coach Brendan Rodgers’ team has the best chance of getting a premier class ticket. The direct duel for the vice championship was just lost last weekend against the Citizens, but the lead to fifth is still comfortable with nine points.
Three of the seven defeats have occurred in the last six games
Even the latest deformity is irrelevant. Leicester City have suffered a total of seven Premier League losses this season. Three of these seven defeats were in the recent six games to cope with. During this period, the third in the table cheered only a 4-1 home win against West Ham United. Otherwise there were two draws (Chelsea and Wolverhampton) and defeats against Southampton, Burnley and most recently Manchester City.
The offensive had difficulties recently
One reason for this is the inhibition of loading on the offensive. After Vardy & Co. had thrilled with spectacular offensive football at the beginning of the season, the team has recently failed to score twice in a row. In comparison, there were previously only two games without a goal in cross-season 24 Premier League games.
The jam is also easy to explain using the example of Jamie Vardy. The English team striker tops the scorer list with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with 17 goals this season. Quite surprising, because the last Vardy hit was on December 21 of last year. In the last seven games (he also missed two due to injury), Vardy has failed to score.
Probable lineup of Leicester:
↳ Schmeichel – Fuchs, Evans, Söyüncü – Chilwell, Tielemans, Praet, Maddison, Pereira – Iheanacho, Vardy
Last games from Leicester:
⚽️ 02/22/2020 – Leicester City vs. Manchester City 0-1 (Premier League)
⚽️ 02/14/2020 – Wolverhampton vs. Leicester City 0-0 (Premier League)
⚽️ 02/01/2020 – Leicester City vs. Chelsea 2-2 (Premier League)
⚽️ 01/28/2020 – Aston Villa vs. Leicester City 2-1 (League Cup)
⚽️ 01/25/2020 – Brentford vs. Leicester City 0-1 (FA Cup)
Norwich vs Leicester Direct Comparison & Statistics Highlights
The English football upper house has not had many duels between the two teams in the recent past. The canaries last celebrated a victory against the Foxes in the Premier League in November 1994. Since that defeat, there have been only four more games between these two teams (three wins for Leicester, one draw) in the top division.
The last time Leicester was in the Premier League in the 2015/16 season on Carrow Road and prevailed 2-1. In the first leg of the current season – mid-December – the Rodgers team had to be content with a 1-1 draw at King Power Stadium at home.

The Farke-Elf has phases in the game again and again, in which the team acts at eye level with significantly higher classified competition, but the team lacks self-confidence due to the many setbacks in order to be able to call such performance over the entire duration of the game.
The guests are certainly not in top shape at the moment, but the Rodgers team will be able to take advantage of the significantly higher quality. So that the Champions League place is not endangered again, a few more points are needed. Games like these are almost “compulsory victories” for the Rodgers team.
We would have expected lower betting odds between Norwich and Leicester for the guess for the guests, so we also use a relatively high stake of eight units for the prediction on the Foxes.
