Norwich City

Norwich City is a great team with a perfectly combined squad. This team has big plans to be promoted to the Premier League. Now team stands at the second place of Championship, however, the difference in points with a catching team is quite small and everything can change. For example, Leeds United, which stands on the first place and has 3 loses in 4 last matches and could be dropped by the Norwich in few rounds. Norwich has a poor form in last 7 matches, they won twice, lost twice and ended 3 matches in the draw, however, they are the best team playing away matches. Canaries in the last 10 matches, they saved clean sheet only twice. We cannot point at specific players who show strong leadership abilities, because they are playing team football by common forces. Only one player showing the best results with 16 goals and 5 assists – T. Pukki. In average Norwich City is scoring 1.9 goals per match. This season Yellows finished all scoring chances, created long shot opportunities and came back from losing positions. But they face problems with protecting the lead and stopping opponents from creating chances and aerial duels.

 

Sheffield United

Sheffield United showing great results and perseverance fighting for the top places in the league. They are only 3 points behind Norwich City and if they win, they can change palaces with them after this match. Sheffield has won 7 of 14 away matches this season, and that is only 6th result in Championship. However, they are showing great form by playing last matches by collecting 19 points of possible 30. B. Sharp and D. McGoldrick together were involved in 30 goals already, and that is one of the best results in the league. The team is very likely to play attacking down the wings, creating chances through individual skills and finishing scoring chances, however, they are facing problems with avoiding the offside. In average Sheffield United scores 1.6 goals per match.
