Our prediction for this Championship match:
There will be fireworks when Norwich City and Sheffield United, the two promotion-chasing sides, face each other at Carrow Road in the Championship derby. The Canaries are sitting in 7th place, three points behind the playoffs berth, meaning that Saturday’s clash is of big importance for them. All Dimitris Giannoulis, Adam Idah, Kieran Dowell, Sam Byram, Isaac Hayden, Jon Rowe, and Przemyslaw Placheta should miss out with injuries for the home team.
The Blades, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Sunderland, with the team eyeing their third consecutive triumph on the road. Since both teams will go for a victory in Saturday’s derby, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score. The likes of Ben Osborn, Enda Stevens, Rhian Brewster, and Jack O’Connell are out of contention with injuries for the visiting team.
