Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Norwich City and Coventry City face each other in an all-Championship clash in the FA Cup last 64. The Canaries aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Barnsley, and they are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s clash. Norwich City are a real force to be reckoned with at home, with the team recording four wins in the previous five home fixtures in the Championship.
The likes of Hernandez, Byram, Idah, McGovern, Mumba, and Stiepermann are all sidelined with injuries. The Sky Blues, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 2-0 loss to Coventry City, with the team beating Millwall 2-1 on the road in their last league match. Coventry City’s main goal is to secure the Championship survival, which is the main reason why we predict that Norwich City are going to advance to the FA Cup last 32.
Highlighted Player (Grant Hanley):
Grant Hanley is Scottish footballer who plays for Norwich City as defender. Hanley was born in Dumfries, Scotland, on November 20, 1991 and he started his youth career at Queen of the South. After ending his spells with Crewe Alexandra and Rangers, the Scottish player joined English club Blackburn Rovers, where he started his senior career.
After scoring eight goals in 183 appearances for the Riversiders in league matches, he moved to fellow English club Newcastle United in July, 2016 for an undisclosed fee. Grant Hanley, though, made no more than 10 appearances for Newcastle United in the Championship before joining Norwich City. The 191-cm-tall defender made his full international debut for Scotland against Wales on in May, 2011.
He scored his first goal for the Scotland national football team in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Wales. His contract with Norwich City should expire on June 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (Coventry):
Nicknamed the Sky Blues, Coventry City are an English football club that compete in the League One. Coventry City, who were founded on August 13, 1883 as Singers FC, wear sky blue kit when playing on home soil, whilst their away colour is white.
Aston Villa and Leicester City are considered the club’s main rivals, but they have rivalry with fellow West Midlands clubs Wallsall and Burton Albion as well. Coventry City have yet to win the Premier League trophy, but they did well to go all the way in the FA Cup in the 1986/1987 season, with the team beat Charlton Athletic in the two-legged final. They share stadium with Birmingham City, with both clubs playing their home games at St. Andrew’s Stadium.
Built in December, 1906, St. Andrew’s Stadium can hold up to 29,409 spectators. Dion Dublin is one of the most famous Coventry City players, with the legendary centre-forward scoring 61 goals in 145 appearances for the club in the league.
