Reason For Rotherham vs Norwich Predictions

  • Rotherham’s four league games this term have produced fewer than 2.5 goals.
  • Similarly, all but one of Norwich’s four outings have also generated fewer than 2.5 goals.
  • The host’s have scored just one goal in their two games at The New York Stadium this season.

Paul Warne has done a good job so far in making his Rotherham United side tough to beat and The Millers should play their part in another low scoring encounter this Saturday.

After years yo-yoing between divisions, the priority for Rotherham this season is to finally begin establishing themselves as a Championship side and they have made a decent start to life back in the second tier.

The Millers have earned 1-1 draws against Birmingham City and Huddersfield on their last two outings, adding to a hard fought 0-1 opening day win against fellow new boys Wycombe. All of Rotherham’s four games thus far have generated fewer than 2.5 goals and we expect them to keep things tight again when they entertain Norwich here.

The Canaries have struggled to regain the winning thread since their relegation from the Premier League and appear to be carrying some wounds and mental scars from a chastening experience in the top flight.

Daniel Farke’s side began the season promisingly with a win and a draw from their first two fixtures, but back to back 1-0 defeats against Bournemouth and Derby County see City 17th in the table heading into this weekend’s fixtures.

Much like Rotherham, all of Norwich’s outings back in the second tier so far have been cagey affairs, with their 2-2 draw at Preston the only game to buck that trend.

So, with seven out of the sides’ eight combined matches this season producing fewer than 2.5 goals and both managers likely to adopt a cautious approach at The New York Stadium, we’re predicting another low scoring match this Saturday afternoon. 

There shouldn’t be much between the teams, but we do just fancy Norwich to edge this one based on the quality they have in their ranks and a 0-1 final score shouldn’t be far away.
