Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Both teams have found the net in three of the four competitive games played by Norwich City this season, and in the same number of Huddersfield Town’s early-season contests. Meanwhile, the hosts conceded 84 Premier League goals last season, while Huddersfield have averaged two concessions per game this term.

Norwich 2-1

Reason for tip

No Championship side has matched Norwich’s tally of 46 shots this campaign, and they also rank third for average possession share and second for total shots on target. Their superior quality must begin to come to the fore, but their last league clean sheet came against Burnley in April, and they’ve since conceded in 10 straight outings.

Norwich vs Huddersfield Predictions

  • Norwich City have seen both teams score in three of their four competitive games this season.
  • Meanwhile, the Canaries’ last league clean sheet came against Burnley in April – they’ve since conceded in 10 successive outings.
  • Three of the four games to feature Huddersfield Town this season have also contained goals at both ends.

Canaries’ wings clipped by Hull

Norwich City, expected to dominate upon their return to the division they won in 2020-21, have endured a dreadful start, following up a return of one point from their opening two Championship matches by losing at home to Hull City on Saturday. Even their EFL Cup victory over Birmingham City came via penalties after a 2-2 draw, and punters would be wise to be wary of backing them against Huddersfield Town.

Indeed, Norwich have managed over 70 per cent of the play in their last two league games, but their familiar defensive shortcomings have held them back; Dean Smith’s team last kept a league clean sheet against Burnley in April, conceding in 10 successive outings since then. The Canaries’ record of 84 goals conceded in the Premier League last season has only been beaten twice in the competition’s history, and their backline has not adapted seamlessly to playing at a lower level.

Huddersfield began the new campaign with three consecutive defeats in all competitions, with murmurings of discontent already audible around new boss Danny Schofield. They responded with a 3-1 win over Stoke City on Saturday, but have seen both teams net in three of their last four games, averaging two concessions per game. Including friendlies, the Terriers have now gone 10 matches without a clean sheet, their last shutout coming in last season’s play-off semi-finals.

Both teams likely to net

With both sides low on confidence following poor starts to the season, punters should neglect the results markets and back both teams to score at Carrow Road.

However, correct score punters are advised to back the hosts for a 2-1 win; only two Championship sides have averaged more possession than Norwich this campaign, none have equalled their tally of 46 shots, and only Sunderland have had more shots on target – their quality should tell, eventually.
