Our football match prediction:
After rolling over Brentford (5-0) in their last home game in the Championship, Norwich City suffered a disappointing 2-1 loss to Barnsley at the weekend. The Canaries are eager to regain their spot in top six and we predict that the hosts will go all guns blazing at Aston Villa in Tuesday’s football match. Over the years Norwich have turned their Carrow Road into a real fortress and it has to be noted that Alex Neil’s men are eyeing their seventh home win of the season. Aston Villa, on the other hand, recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Wigan Athletic in their last league fixture, with Jack Grealish scoring the winner in the dying minutes of the game. It is well known that the Villans are tough to beat at home, but their away displays leave a lot to be desired and we believe that the visitors will return home empty-handed.
Highlighted Player (Robbie Brady):
Robbie Brady is an Irish footballer who plays for Norwich City as a winger, but he is capable of playing at left back as well. Brady began his youth career at St. Kevin’s Boys, where he was spotted by Manchester United scouts. In 2008 he joined the Old Trafford outfit at age 16. He played for Manchester United U-18 team, but he did not make his debut for the senior team. The Irish footballer played for Hull City on loan in the 2011/2012 and the 2012/2013 Championship campaigns and in January, 2013 he signed a permanent deal with the Tigers for an undisclosed fee. Robbie Brady made his Republic of Ireland debut on 8 September, 2012, in a 4-1 win over Oman and it has to be noted that he scored one goal and provided two assists for his teammates in the victory over the Asian team. He represented the Boys in Green at the 2016 European Championship finals and he scored the winner against Italy that helped the team make it to the knockout stages of the showpiece tournament.
Highlighted Team (Aston Villa):
Aston Villa are one of the three clubs that dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign. The Villans host their rivals at Villa Park, the stadium that was opened in 1897 and its’ capacity is 42,682. However, it has to be noted that the highest attendance recorded at the stadium was 76,588 when Aston Villa faced Derby County in the FA Cup back in 1946. Aston Villa’s fiercest rivals are Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion. Nonetheless, the rivalry between Aston Villa and Wolves and Coventry City is big as well. Aston Villa have won seven First Division (Premier League) trophies, with the team clinching seven FA Cup trophies as well. The team’s biggest success, though, came in 1982 when they won the European Cup. The Villans defeated Bayern Munich (1-0) in the title game and Peter Withe was named the man of the match.
