Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a 1-0 win at Bristol City, Norwich City square off against Sheffield United at their Carrow Road on Matchday 28. The Canaries are eyeing their third consecutive win in the English second tier and a win over United will see them move a little closer to the play-offs berth. Norwich have found their best form of late, but they will have to be at their sharpest against the Blades if they are to pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match. Sheffield United failed to impress in the goalless draw with their local rivals Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend, but they remained in top six in the Championship standings. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and we predict that they are going to play out a draw at Carrow Road this weekend. It has to be noted, though, that the Canaries emerged triumphant in each of their last three meetings with the Blades.
