    Norwich to win big clash at the top of the Championship

    On Wednesday evening, the two top teams in the English Championship meet, as league leaders Norwich host second-place Brentford at Carrow Road.

    Norwich are looking set to bounce back to the Premier League after just one season in the English second tier. The Canaries are currently seven points clear of Wednesday evening’s visitors, while also being ten points clear of third-place Watford in the race for automatic promotion to the Premier League.

    Daniel Farke’s team are certainly heading into this clash with some major momentum, as Norwich City have won their previous five matches in the Championship.

    A 2-0 win at Wycombe Wanderers last time out also means that City have scored at least two goals in four of their previous five league matches.

    One key aspect of the Canaries strong league campaign so far has been their form at Carrow Road, where they are unbeaten in 14 matches, having recorded ten wins.

    Norwich have been defensively sound on home soil in the Championship of late, conceding just one goal in five league outings on their own patch.

    Brentford are once again in the thick of the promotion race and will be looking to make it second time lucky after narrowly missing out on going up last season. The Bees are second place, but they have Watford chomping at their heels just three points behind.

    Thomas Frank’s team will be hoping to avoid the lottery of the play-offs this season by sealing their place automatically this time around.

    The visitors look to have overcome a poor run of form in mid-to-late February when they suffered three straight defeats, as they have since recorded back-to-back victories over Sheffield Wednesday and Stoke City to get their promotion challenge back on track.

    Forebet predicts that Norwich will record a potentially vital victory in a low-scoring encounter to boost their promotion hopes and dent the visitors dreams in the process.
