Brighton vs Norwich City Betting Preview | 2 Nov 2019

Brighton vs Norwich City Betting Preview | 2 Nov 2019

Looking to extend on what is becoming a very eye-catching run on the South Coast, Brighton will host a Norwich side low on both form and confidence when they travel to the Amex on Saturday afternoon.

Picking up the most dramatic of injury-time winners and grabbing a 3-2 victory over Everton last weekend, the Seagulls have landed back-to-back victories on home soil and now have their sights set on making a charge for the top half.

On the flip side, while Brighton might be enjoying their brightest run in front of their own supporters, Norwich have continued on what has been an extended rut.

Suffering a 3-1 hammering against Manchester United last weekend, the Premier League returners are enduring a five-match winless run and they have lost four of those contests.

Yet to record a single victory away from Carrow Road since opening the 2019/2020 campaign, you might be interested to know that Saturday’s hosts can be found at 3/4 with Ladbrokes to come out on top this weekend.

Brighton’s South Coast resurge

Although Brighton may have struggled with their consistency after appointing Graham Potter over the summer, the mood around the Amex does appear to be on the rise.

Battling from behind to snatch three points off of Everton on the South Coast last weekend, there is no doubt that the former Swansea boss finds his side still boosted by their famous 3-0 win over Tottenham last the month.

Now securing a buffer over the drop zone and knowing that another victory on Saturday could potentially see them climb as high as sixth, you might be interested to know that the Seagulls can be found at 10/3 with Bet365 to land a top half finish this season.

Led by summer arrival Neal Maupay who converted from the spot in their victory over Everton last weekend, Brighton’s attacking purple patch at the Amex will be most impressing Potter.

Saturday’s hosts have scored a trio of goals in back-to-back matches on home soil and they should be confident of extending that tally this weekend.

Brighton are pencilled in at 9/4 with 888Sport to once again bag over 2.5 goals on the South Coast.

Norwich – The relegation favourites?

Handed a 3-1 hammering at home against fellow strugglers Manchester United last weekend and lucky to ship just a trio of goals, Norwich are drastically low on form heading into November.

Failing to win any of their last five Premier League appearances since their famous victory over Manchester City back in September, Daniel Farke now finds his side sat down in 19th and tipped as one of the leading contenders to be hit with a Championship return next summer.

The Canneries are already priced as low as 8/13 with William Hill to finish in the drop zone this season, ahead of Watford who sit at 10/11.

A huge part of Norwich’s continued struggles has come down to some glaring issues outside of East Anglia.

Playing out a lacklustre 0-0 draw against Bournemouth in their last appearance away from Carrow Road, Norwich have also lost five of their six matches on the road, a run highlighted by a 1-0 defeat at League Two outfit Crawley back in August.

Also now failing to record a single strike in any of their last five matches on the road across all competitions, it should be noted Saturday’s gusts can be found at 7/4 with Coral to draw another blank this weekend.
