Norwich resume their fight for Premier League survival against Southampton with home form likely to be key.
The Canaries have five of their remaining nine games at Carrow Road while Saints are not quite safe yet after four defeats in their last five.
Daniel Farke’s side were playing well before the interruption and can give their chances a massive boost with a win at 11/5 and that is our first Norwich vs Southampton prediction.
A Look At Norwich City’s Betting Odds
Norwich beat Leicester at this venue in their last home game before knocking Tottenham out of the FA Cup on penalties on a memorable night in London.
They were then unfortunate not to secure at least a point in a 1-0 loss at Sheffield United prior to the break which has left them six points adrift of safety.
But Farke told the club website: “We’re still in a fighting mode in order to make sure that hopefully we will play in the best league in the world next season.
“We want to be as successful as possible in the FA Cup. The dream would be that we’re allowed to play in the best league in the world next season and also in Europe by winning the FA Cup!
“They’re big challenges and perhaps not realistic targets for us, but definitely targets we can achieve. Right now we are greedy to create some more memories.”
Norwich have lost only one of their last five on home soil but their matches here have been entertaining with 45 goals being scored in 14 fixtures.
Looking at the Norwich vs Southampton odds, we like 18/5 for a home win and over 2.5 goals.
Last Norwich line-up: Krul, Aarons, Hanley, Godfrey, Lewis, Tettey, McLean, Buendia, Duda, Cantwell, Pukki.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton were given a boost during the lockdown with boss Ralph Hasenhuttl signing a new four-year contract with the club.
The 52-year-old took over at St Mary’s in December 2018 and has proved a popular appointment, turning around his side’s fortunes after a 9-0 home defeat to Leicester in October.
Hasenhuttl said: “I said when I arrived at the club that we were at the beginning of a long journey and also a journey that would bring emotion and hopefully enjoyment.
“We have already had some moments where we could celebrate together and some that have been emotional and also challenging.
“The way we have handled this together as a group of people has been incredible for me and I believe we now have strong foundations here that can allow us to take the next steps in our progress as a team.”
However, Saints are seven points above the bottom three after losing four of their last five games so are not out of danger just yet.
They have netted in 12 of their 14 away games this season so 9/5 they score exactly one goal is our final Norwich vs Southampton prediction.
Last Southampton line-up: McCarthy, Valery, Stephens, Bednarek, Bertrand, Boufal, Ward-Prowse, Hojbjerg, Djenepo, Long, Ings.
Sheff Utd 1-0 NORWICH
SOUTHAMPTON 0-1 Newcastle
Head-to-head: Southampton 2-1 Norwich, Southampton 1-0 Norwich, Norwich 2-2 Southampton
