Our prediction for this Championship match:
Wednesday’s football game between Norwich City and Leicester City will bring down the curtain on day 7 of the new Championship campaign. The Canaries aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Stoke City, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive triumph at home ground. Barring any fresh injury worries, David Wagner is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Potters, but keep in mind that all Josh Sargent, Jakob Sorensen, Borja Sainz, and Grant Hanley remain in the recovery room.
The Foxes, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 4-1 over Southampton and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Experienced forward Jamie Vardy should keep his place in the starting XI after scoring the opener against the Saints, while midfielder Dennis Praet continues to miss out with a back injury.
Highlighted Player (Jamie Vardy):
Spending his early career playing no-league football, Jamie Vardy made the headlines when he joined Leicester City in a £1 million deal in 2012, but little did he know that he would go on to become a genuine Premier League star just three years later.
The experienced forward helped the Foxes gain promotion to the elite division and then score more than 20 goals as they mounted an unlikely title bid, earning worldwide acclaim as well as a place in the England squad. Vardy went on to score his first two goals for the Three Lions in March 2016 friendlies, with his back-heel goal against Germany in Berlin seeing him instantly become a fans’ favourite.
Over the years, Vardy has earned a reputation as a striker who never gives up and can be a real menace for opposition defenders, but his excellent goalscoring record and good link-up play are enough to suggest he can be described as a mix of old-style pacey forwards and modern strikers.
Highlighted Team (Norwich):
After spending only one season in the Premier League, Norwich City dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. Norwich City are located in Norwich, Norfolk and they welcome their rivals at Carrow Road.
The stadium was built and opened in 1935 and the capacity of the venues is 27,137 (all-seater). However the stadium’s record attendance is 43,984. The Canaries have won two League Cup trophies (1973, 1975) and their main rivals are Ipswich Town. The two teams have been facing each other in the East Anglian Derby since 1902.
The colour of Norwich City’s home kit is yellow and green and that is the main reason why they are known as the Canaries. The likes of Kevin Keeland, Ian Culverhouse, Steve Bruce, Duncan Forbes, Mark Bowen, Darren Huckerby, Ian Crook, Martin Peters, Darren Eadier, Chris Sutton and Iwan Roberts are notable footballers who played for the Carrow Road outfit in the past.
