Our football match prediction:
Portman Road Stadium will host Sunday’s football match between Ipswich Town and Norwich City. The Tractor Boys aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to the likes of Bristol City and Sheffield United, but the game against Norwich City will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Ipswich want to regain their spot in top six and the fact that they have already recorded four wins at home this season is giving fans a reason for optimism. The Canaries made a slow start to the season, but they have been improving their game week by week and they are on a seven-game unbeaten run in the league ahead of the trip to Ipswich. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a certain value in betting on draw.
Highlighted Player (Jonas Knudsen):
Back in 2004 Jonas Knudsen of Denmark began his youth career at Hjerting IF. In 2006 he joined Esbjerg and he made his first-team debut for the club in a heavy 4-0 loss to Randers. Knudsen became the second youngest debutant in the history of the club and he stayed at the club until 2015. The 185-cm-tall left back joined Ipswich Town on 31 July, 2015 and his deal with the Tractor Boys expires in 2018. Knudsen used to play for Denmark U18, U19, U20 and U21 teams in the past and he has four caps for the first team. Jonas Knudsen made 41 appearances for Ipswich Town in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and he scored one goal for the club on his debut season. The Danish international is well known for his long throws and journalists in England often compare him with Rory Delap. Knudsen was born on 16 September, 1992 in Esbjerg.
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.
