Norwich City vs Wolves Betting Preview | 21 Dec 2019

After being left extremely disappointed to have watched Spurs grab a flattering 2-1 win at Molineux last weekend, Wolves have their sights firmly set on making a return to winning ways when they make the trip to Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon.

Although Nuno Espírito Santo’s men might have seen their nine-match unbeaten run come to an abrupt end on home soil last time out, the Oranges have secured their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Europa League and the mood in their camp remains at a high.

On the flip side, while Norwich may have shocked many by picking up what could be a crucial point away at the King Power last week, Daniel Farke finds his side on a four-match winless run and still firmly at the heart of a relegation scrap.

You might be interested to know that the last time Wolves made the trip to East Anglia back in October 2017, Saturday’s guests landed a 2-0 victory and the Oranges can be found at 1/1 with Paddy Power to leave Carrow Road with three points this weekend.

Teemu Pukki – Norwich’s saviour?

Praising his squad after picking up what was a shock 1-1 draw away at title outsiders Leicester last weekend, Head Coach Daniel Farke is desperate for his side to build off of that result.

However, without a win since opening December and winning just once in their last 12 Premier League games, the Yellows open the weekend three points adrift of safety and are still seen to be a landslide favourite to be hit with a Championship return next year.

The former Borussia Dortmund coach finds his side priced as low as 1/5 with Paddy Power to finish in the bottom-three come May.

Unsurprisingly, one man to keep an eye out for this weekend and someone who will spearhead Norwich’s survival charge is leading marksman, Teemu Pukki.

Refinding his early-season touch and once again finding the net against Leicester last time out, the Finland international has three goals in his last four Premier League appearances and has been directly involved in 12 Premier League goals this season (nine goals, three assists), twice as many as any other Norwich player.

Pukki can be found priced at 13/8 with Ladbrokes to once again find the net this weekend.

“We were almost perfect”

Although Wolves may have caught the eye against Spurs last weekend and had their performance described as “almost perfect” by Head Coach Nuno Espírito Santo, the Oranges could only slump to a 2-1 defeat.

Despite seeing their nine-match unbeaten run come to an abrupt end in the Midlands last time out, Wolves’ Portuguese boss insists the mood in his camp remains at a high and another European finish is firmly on their agenda.

Opening the weekend just a single point behind both Manchester United and Sheffield United, you might be interested to know that the Europa League group winners are pencilled in at 4/1 with 888sport to clinch another top-six finish come May.

While fans around Molineux have been left excited by the blossoming relationship between Raul Jimenez and Adama Traore, one man who you should keep an eye out for this weekend could be winger, Diogo Jota.

Bagging a Europa League hat-trick against Besiktas last week, the 23-year-old has five goals in his last three matches across all competitions and can be found priced at 15/8 with Ladbrokes to extend on that tally in East Anglia.
