It has been a season of highs and lows for both teams and their fans could be meeting again in the top-flight next term with Championship team Norwich already promoted as champions while Aston Villa is a respected side in the play-offs. Here are our top Aston Villa v Norwich betting tips.
An In-Depth Look at the Game
The locals took 13 of the last 15 points that were available to them and that shot Villa to fifth place in the table, where they will finish. West Brom is four better while Derby County, one place behind, need six points to catch up. With nothing to play for and the play-offs coming around quickly, we may see a few of the home team’s better players given a rest.
Villa ended a run of wins with a draw last time out when being held to a 1-1 by Leeds United on the road. A two-goal share was entertaining for fans, but it didn’t do much to help either side and both will dust themselves off and meet again in the next phase where they could meet again. El Ghazi was shown a straight red card at 0-1 and that looked it for The Villans but they got back into it thanks to a quickfire response from Adomah who pulled a point from the ashes. Another draw is 12/5 with Bet365, the home win chalked up at 6/4 with William Hill.
Canaries Singing a Sweet Tune
Norwich City was confirmed as a promoted team last weekend when ending a run of draws with a win over Blackburn Rovers, made all the sweeter by the fact it happened in front of their own fans after a period of disappointment. Norwich had drawn four games on the spin going into the tie but made a timely return to winning ways thanks to goals from Stiepermann and Vrancic, both coming inside the first 21 minutes of the game. Travis fired a response on 23 but Blackburn never looked good enough to spoil the party.
On an emotional day for the club and its fans, The Canaries moved three points clear of Sheffield United with only one game left to go. The Blades do have a superior goal difference, but it also means if the visitors avoid defeat, which you would expect them to do, they’ll get their hands on the title. Upsets are 10 a penny in this league but we really don’t expect to see Norwich toppled. Manager Daniel Farke told members of the press his team had achieved something really extraordinary and it would be no surprise to the canaries them sign off with a win at 37/20 – best price with Unibet. We’re having the draw which would be a decent result for both clubs. Good enough to back as a single.
