Our prediction for this Championship match:
Saturday’s football game at Cardiff City Stadium pits together Cardiff City and Norwich City, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Canaries are eager to put an end to their four-game losing run, but they face a tough task against the in-form Bluebirds. All Angus Gunn, Ashley Barnes, Josh Sargent, Jakob Sorensen, and Grant Hanley are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team.
The South Wales outfit, meanwhile, have a chance to climb to the playoffs berth and we predict that they will take advantage of the current situation in Norwich’s dressing room. Aaron Ramsey and Callum ODowda continue to miss out with injuries, but they should be the only absentees in the home team. Last time out, Romaine Sawyers’ goal helped the Bluebirds beat the Canaries at Cardiff City Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Callum Robinson):
Born in Northampton, Callum Robinson started his career at Aston Villa. Having gone through the youth ranks with the Villans, Robinson was given his first-team debut in 2013. As a product of the Aston Villa academy, Robinson unfortunately never got a chance to prove his worth at the club and ended up playing no less than 4 league appearances during his three-year stay at Villa Park.
Various loan spells – at Preston North End on two occasions and Bristol City – brought mixed fortunes for the striker up until 2016 when he sealed a permanent move with the Lillywhites. Robinson represented England at U16, U17, U19 and U20 levels but raised plenty of eyebrows when he declared for the Republic of Ireland in March 2018 through his late grandmother who was from Monaghan.
The striker made his senior team breakthrough in Republic of Ireland’s 2-2 draw with Celtic in Scott Brown’s testimonial match and will be hoping to prove doubters wrong and prove his motive is bigger than career opportunism.
Highlighted Team (Norwich):
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.
