Brentford vs Norwich – England Championship Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
Out of the three teams that dropped from the Premier League for this season, Norwich is doing the worst. Although Aston Villa isn’t far ahead either, Norwich’s football hasn’t been good and the team has serious issues putting together a serious promotion contention, especially since they can’t tie one good result to the next. That being said, can we really expect them to win at Brentford?

The home team is one of the mid-table sides of the division, fairly far from both the relegation area as well as the playoff spots. They have a 29-30 goal difference and just 29 points, 18 of which were won at their home ground. It’s very hard to find something special about this team because they really don’t excel at anything – they’re just a solid, mid-table team which are hard to beat more often than not. 7 points from their last 5 games also pin them just above Norwich in terms of form.
At the other end, Norwich’s season isn’t going as people initially expected. They’ve lost 10 games out of their 23 they played so far. The biggest issue is that they can’t really turn losses into draws – if they managed to do so in half their losses, they would have been close to the playoff spots now. They’ve suffered 5 straight defeats on the road, and have conceded 26 times in the 12 games they’ve played so far – a horrible record, especially for a Premier League relegate.
Brentford vs Norwich Betting Tips
Although Norwich’s form is horrible, we do expect them to pick up their game sooner or later. That is why we recommend going for a “both teams to score” bet or an “over 2,5 goals” bet, since only 6 of Norwich’s games were “under” games. If you’re looking for a riskier bet, and X2 can also work, since we do back the Canaries to finally produce some good football.
