Norwich City 4/6 to beat Birmingham City in Tuesday’s Championship matchup
Market: Norwich City win
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
Looking to widen their buffer at the top of the Championship table in midweek, Norwich City will make the trip to relegation scrappers Birmingham on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Birmingham might have managed to land a much-needed victory over the weekend, the Blues do hold a reputation for their glaring issues on home soil. In their 31 Championship matchups so far this season, they have recorded seven wins, 10 draws and 14 defeats, scoring 22 and conceding 37 in return. Opening up the midweek fixtures sat 21st in the table and holding just a two-point buffer from dropping into the bottom-three, it should be noted that Birmingham hold the second-worst attacking tally in the Championship. As for their recent run of results, despite landing that 1-0 victory against Sheffield Wednesday over the weekend, that was only the Blues’ second win in their last 15 matchups across all formats. More worrying, Birmingham have remarkably managed to pick up just a pair of second-tier points from their previous 12 straight home fixtures.
As for the visitors, managing to refind their form over the past fortnight, Norwich are still firmly battling it out in the automatic promotion chase. In their 31 Championship matchups so far this season, they have recorded 19 wins, seven draws and five defeats, scoring 42 and conceding 24 in return. Along with holding the third-best defensive tally in the division, they also open the midweek fixtures with a points tally of 64 and already holding a seven-point buffer at the top of the standings. As for their recent run of results, last seen over the weekend when picking up a 1-0 win at home against Rotherham, Norwich have won each of their last three Championship contests on the spin. Given the recent huge gulf between Tuesday’s opponents, we’re backing an away victory.
