What Trueform says for Norwich vs Aston Villa
Dean Smith began his Aston Villa reign with a Championship win over Swansea but we feel the honeymoon period may quickly end when the Midlands outfit visit Norwich.
City were more impressive in a weekend victory at Nottingham Forest on our Trueform ratings and they have a fine home record against their next opponents.
The Canaries have won the last three head-to-head meetings at Carrow Road and 7/5 for them to further extend that hoodoo is our opening Norwich vs Aston Villa prediction.
A Look At Norwich City’s Betting Odds
Norwich made it six wins from eight games when inflicting a first home defeat of the season on Forest on Saturday.
Lewis Grabban struck against his former club to give Forest an early lead, but two goals from Timm Klose turned things around and pushed the Canaries up to sixth in the table.
“They are one of the favourites for promotion and it’s such a tough place to go, a sell-out crowd, it’s tough to beat them,” said head coach Daniel Farke.
“We started poorly in the game and I got the feeling they were on the front foot, so how we turned the game completely says a lot about our mentality and our togetherness.”
Losing red-hot Finland striker Teemu Pukki to a hamstring injury over the international break was a blow, but City still look like play-off hopefuls on current form.
Preston, Middlesbrough and Wigan have all been beaten at Carrow Road this season after a goalless first period.
A Look At Aston Villa’s Betting Odds
Smith had Tammy Abraham to thank as the Chelsea loanee’s goal earned Villa a 1-0 home win over Swansea in his first match as manager since switching from Brentford.
However, Norwegian keeper Orjan Nyland then had to make a number of top-quality saves to maintain the advantage.
“In the second half, I thought our energy levels dropped and allowed Swansea to get onto the ball in little pockets,” admitted Smith.
Despite that welcome fillip, it may take a little more time to cure his new team’s travel sickness, though, with Villa having gone five Championship road trips without a win.
The Midlands side have scored just one goal in each of those games, so 9/1 for a correct score of 2-1 in City’s favour is worth adding to our Norwich vs Aston Villa betting tips.
