Our football match prediction:
Thanks to Steve Morison’s goal Millwall recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over QPR in the local derby and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they face Norwich City at Carrow Road. The Lions are a team with two faces; they are tough to beat at home, but their away record is anything but good. The capital club are 11 points behind the play-offs berth ahead of Monday’s football game and, no doubt, they want to keep on climbing the standings. Norwich City have been having their ups and downs in the 2017/2018 Championship campaign and, as a result, they sit in 13th place in the table ahead of their first game of the year. The Canaries played out a goalless draw with Burton Albion in their last league match and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet in the English second tier. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and we predict the two sides are going to share the spoils at Carrow Road.
