Our prediction for this Championship match:
All eyes will be on Carrow Road when Norwich City and Stoke City square off against each other in the Championship round 29. The Canaries are determined to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League, but they need to start winning on a regular basis if they are to meet the goal. Norwich failed to impress in a 2-0 loss at Swansea City, but bookies still see them as favourites to beat Stoke City on home soil.
Emiliano Buendia returns from suspension, while Adam Idah is pushing for a start. The Potters, on the other hand, are eyeing their first league win since December 19, 2020. Stoke City failed to impress in a goalless draw with Reading, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Norwich City’s party at Carrow Road. Tom Ince is no longer part of the team as he joined Luton Town in the January transfer window.
