Our prediction for this Championship match:
Norwich City and Wolverhampton face each other at Carrow Road in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Tuesday’s program. The Canaries suffered a 2-1 loss to Derby County in front of home fans at the weekend and it has to be noted that the Rams put an end to Norwich’s eight-game unbeaten run in the Championship. However, a win over Wolverhampton would see Daniel Farke’s men climb to the play-offs berth and we predict that they are going to go all guns blazing at Nuno Espirito Snato’s charges in the midweek fixture. Following three consecutive wins in the English second tier, the Wolves suffered an upsetting 2-1 loss to Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road at the weekend and, no doubt, they are eager to get back on course. A lively contest appears on the cards and we believe that Norwich City and Wolverhampton are going to play out a high-scoring draw at Carrow Road.
