Norwich City vs Leicester City Betting Preview | 28 Feb 2020

Looking to make a return to winning ways and extend their buffer in the top-four, Leicester will make the trip to relegation scrappers Norwich for the Premier League’s Friday night action at Carrow Road.

While the Foxes may have asked Manchester City a string of questions at the King Power last weekend, Brendan Rodgers’ side could only slump to a late 1-0 defeat and the former Celtic boss finds his side in the midst of a four-match winless run.

On the flip side, while Leicester might still be fighting their own battle at the top of the table, Norwich find themselves in a very different position.

Hit with a 3-0 hammering away at another European hopeful in Wolves over the weekend, Friday’s hosts have now been hit with back-to-back defeats and find themselves sat eight points adrift of top-flight safety.

While Daniel Farke’s side might have landed just a sole Premier League victory since the 23rd of November, you might be interested to know that Norwich did manage to snatch a shock point on the road earlier in the season.

Another stalemate in East Anglia can be found priced at 11/4 with 888sport for Friday night.

Norwich freefalling back to the Championship

While a 2-1 win away at Burnley in the FA Cup last month may have been a minor bounce for Norwich, the Yellows have since come crashing back down to earth in rather dramatic fashion.

Blown away at Molineux and on the wrong end of a 3-0 hammering, Head Coach Daniel Farke finds his side still sat rock-bottom of the table and unsurprisingly branded as the leading contender to be hit with an immediate championship return.

Along with having a growing reputation for their continued issues at the back, there is no doubt that fans around East Anglia will have growing concerns over their side’s problems in the final third.

With leading marksman TeemuPukki failing to find the net in his last four matches on the bounce, Norwich have now failed to find the net in their last three Premier League matches on the spin.

Yet to record a single strike since opening February, you might be interested to know that last year’s Championship winners can be found priced at 7/4 with Ladbrokes to draw another blank on Friday night.

Leicester seeking a bounce

While Brendan Rodgers may have seen his side put in a spirited display against the soon to be former champions last weekend, Leicester find themselves in the midst of a four-match winless run and simply have their sights set on securing a Champions League return this year.

Still holding a nine-point buffer from losing their top-four status, there is no doubt that the former Celtic boss will be most concerned by his side’s recent issues at the back.

Along with leading marksman Jamie Vardy enduring his worst goalscoring drought in over two years, Friday’s guests have now managed to record just a sole Premier League clean sheet in their last six matches on the bounce.

More worrying for fans around the King Power, Rodgers’ side have landed just two clean sheets since the 4th of December and you might be interested to know that betting offers like Leicester can be found priced at 1/2 with Paddy Power to have their defence breached on Friday night.

Elsewhere, Hamza Choudhury is back in matchday contention after serving a one-game suspension, while defensive midfielder WilfriedNdidi has a chance of returning from his knee injury.
