Norwich City vs Bournemouth Betting Preview | 18 Jan 2020

In what is being billed as a real relegation six-pointer this weekend, Norwich will welcome fellow strugglers Bournemouth to Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon.

Putting in a worrying display and hit with a 4-0 hammering away at an inconsistent Manchester United on the road last week, the Canaries have failed to win any of their last nine Premier League matches and still find themselves sat rock-bottom of the standings.

On the flip side, hit with their own hammering against Watford last time out, Bournemouth find themselves in the midst of a growing crisis.

Shipping three against the Hornets on the South Coast, Saturday’s guests have lost their last three top-flight appearances on the bounce and have remarkably lost nine of their previous 11 Premier League outings.

You might be interested to know, with the two sides playing out a 0-0 stalemate when they faced off back in October, Norwich’s last two matchups at Carrow Road have ended in a draw and similar outcome can be found priced at 12/5 with Bet365.

Betting Tip: Draw – 12/5 @ Bet365

Farke’s defensive headache

Although Norwich may have put in an eye-catching display against Tottenham last month and been disappointed to have only left Carrow Road with a point, Daniel Farke’s men have continued to show some glaring issues at the back.

Hit for four against Manchester United last weekend, the former Borussia Dortmund coach finds his side already sat eight points adrift of safety and priced as low as 1/10 with Coral to be the hit with an immediate Championship return this year.

Lucky to have seen United only bag four strikes at Old Trafford, Norwich have shipped nine goals in their last four matches across all competitions and they have recorded just a pair of clean sheets since making their top-flight return.

If Saturday’s hosts are to pull off what would be a stunning great escape, then fans in East Anglia will be calling for leading marksman Teemu Pukki to refined his goalscoring touch.

Failing to find the net in each of his last five Premier League appearances, you might be interested to know that the Finnish striker can be found priced at 11/10 with Ladbrokes to end his barren run this weekend.

Toothless Cherries

Hit with a 3-0 hammering at home against Watford last weekend and booed off by fans around the Vitality, Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe finds himself enduring his most testing spell on the South Coast.

Dropping into the bottom-three and suddenly seen as a leading contender for the drop this season, the Cherries have lost nine of their last 11 Premier League matchups and the mood in their camp remains the lowest it has been in recent memory.

Also dealing with a string of first-team injury issues, Bournemouth have managed to collect just four points out of a possible 33 in a run that stems back to the start of November.

While Norwich might be continuing to show some glaring issues at the back, Bournemouth have continued to show their own struggles in front of goal.

Drawing another blank against Watford last weekend, the misfiring Cherries have failed to find the net in each of their last three Premier League appearances and have just one goal to their name in over 450 minutes of action.

You might be interested to know that Howe’s side can be found priced at 9/4 with William Hill to draw yet another blank on the road in East Anglia.
