Kick-off: 1500, 17/08/2019
Stadium: Carrow Road
Norwich and Newcastle only managed one goal between them last week but both sides were more positive going forward than that stat suggests.
City and United also have a history of bringing out the best in each other, with their last four head-to-head encounters producing a whopping 24 successful strikes.
Punters can get 91/100 for over 2.5 goals in this game and that is our initial Norwich vs Newcastle prediction.
A Look At Norwich City’s Betting Odds
Norwich looked in danger of suffering an embarrassing loss when falling 4-0 behind in the first half at Liverpool but rallied bravely after the break.
Teemu Pukki netted the only goal of the second period with a clinical finish, while the Canaries also carved open the Reds’ defence on several more occasions.
Over the full 90 minutes, City had 12 attempts on goal, with five shots on target, so there were some encouraging signs, with even Jurgen Klopp stating they “stayed cheeky and lively”.
Daniel Farke declared: “We are for sure disappointed with this loss and result, but there are also many positive things to take.
“My feeling was in general our performance deserved much more than a 4-1 loss. We are not too far away from having a really good result here.”
Looking at the Norwich vs Newcastle odds, we feel 333/100 for a score draw stands out.
Last Norwich line-up: Krul, Aarons, Godfrey, Hanley, Lewis, Cantwell, Buendia, Stiepermann, Trybull, McLean, Pukki.
Norwich have only two fit centre-backs and winger Onel Hernandez could require surgery after slipping and falling while at home for a suspected lateral miniscus tear and possible ACL damage.
Adam Idah and Kenny McLean are also doubtful but Alex Tettey is expected to be available.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle’s performance in a 1-0 home loss to Arsenal was almost a role reversal, with the Magpies starting brightly, but then fading badly after the break.
Questions will be asked about the way United visibly wilted following Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s 58th-minute goal.
However, we prefer to focus on a promising first half, during which Jonjo Shelvey hit the post and Brazilian newcomer Joelinton came close to opening his account.
Matt Ritchie told NUFC TV: “I thought we performed really well in spells, we got into some really good areas.
“The quality wasn’t quite there in the final third…but there are certainly positives to take.”
Miguel Almiron was lively for an hour and we’re taking a punt on this to be a 2-2 draw at 27/2 to complete our Norwich vs Newcastle betting tips.
Last Newcastle line-up: Dubravka, Dummett, Schar, Lascelles, Manquillo, Shelvey, Ritchie, Hayden, Almiron, Longstaff, Joelinton.
Magpies winger Allan Saint-Maximin may miss out with a hamstring injury but fellow midfielder Shelvey is fit after ankle trouble.
Deadline-day signing Emil Krafth will hope for a debut but DeAndre Yedlin (groin), Florian Lejeune (knee), Christian Atsu (knee) and striker Dwight Gayle (hamstring) are out and Andy Carroll continues to work his way back towards match fitness.
