Our football match prediction:
Cardiff City made a slow start to the season. The Bluebirds were struggling in the Championship until December, but they have been producing fine performances in the English second tier of late. The Welsh outfit were not capable of matching the likes of Brighton and Reading in previous two away games in the league, but they did remarkably well to beat Preston at home on Matchday 29. Cardiff City recorded four wins in previous six league fixtures and they are definitely capable of grabbing something from Saturday’s football match against Norwich City. The Canaries defeated Birmingham City at home at the weekend, but the team’s away record is poor and that is the main reason why we predict the hosts will emerge triumphant in the Cardiff City Stadium clash. In previous three meetings between the two teams Norwich City defeated Cardiff City, but the Bluebirds are likely to put an end to the negative trend.
Highlighted Player (Aron Gunnarson):
Aron Gunnarson started his youth career at Akureyri and after making 11 appearances for the senior team, he joined AZ Alkmaar in 2006. The midfielder, who was born on 22 April, 1988, was not happy at AZ as he played no more than one game for the Dutch outfit in two seasons and, as a result, he decided to leave the club on 17 June, 2008. The Icelandic footballer signed a three-year deal with Coventry City and it has to be noted that he scored 6 goals in 123 league appearances for the English club. On 8 July, 2011, he joined Cardiff City on a free transfer and he made 45 appearances for the Welsh outfit in the 2014/2015 Championship campaign, scoring four goals for the club. Aron Gunnarson, though, played just 28 games for the Bluebirds in the 2015/2016 season and you should have in mind that he netted two goals for the team in the league. Gunnarson represented Iceland at the 2016 Euro finals and he made his 64th appearance for the national team at the tournament in France.
Highlighted Team (Norwich City):
After spending only one season in the Premier League, Norwich City dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. Norwich City are located in Norwich, Norfolk and they welcome their rivals at Carrow Road. The stadium was built and opened in 1935 and the capacity of the venues is 27,137 (all-seater). However the stadium’s record attendance is 43,984. The Canaries have won two League Cup trophies (1973, 1975) and their main rivals are Ipswich Town. The two teams have been facing each other in the East Anglian Derby since 1902. The colour of Norwich City’s home kit is yellow and green and that is the main reason why they are known as the Canaries. The likes of Kevin Keeland, Ian Culverhouse, Steve Bruce, Duncan Forbes, Mark Bowen, Darren Huckerby, Ian Crook, Martin Peters, Darren Eadier, Chris Sutton and Iwan Roberts are notable footballers who played for the Carrow Road outfit in the past.
