Our prediction for this Championship match:
Norwich City will be aiming to build on a 3-2 win over Stoke City when they host Coventry City at their Carrow Road. The Canaries are seen as No. 1 favourites to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League, but they head into Saturday’s football match with a severely-weakened squad. First-choice goalkeeper Tim Krul has joined the likes of Byram, Cantwell, Hernandez, Hugill, Dowell, Idah, McLean, Mumba, and Quintilla in the recovery room, while Buendia is sidelined through suspension.
The Sky Blues aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Cardiff, and given the number of absentees in the home team, we predict that the visitors are going to find the net in the Carrow Road clash. Taking everything into account, both teams to score betting option should be considered. In their last meeting in the Championship the two teams played out a 2-2 draw.
