2-0 - Lost
The Seagulls have secured the Premier league ticket with their great 5-wins run in the last 5 rounds, and they ended the 34 years exile from the Premier league. As they've reached their primary goal, their motivation might have vanished,but not completely though. They will try playing for the fans and the spectators, but I doubt they will have some special competitive motivation. The guests surely have more than enough quality to challenge Norwich's defence in many ways, even in this situation, so we cannot say they won't score. However, Norwich are one very unpredictable side, with an amazing attacking power, especially at home, where they defeated and crushed many opponents. A team that demolishes Reading 7:1 is undoubtedly capable of scoring goals against anyone at home, also against Brighton, who have already qualified for Premier league. The biggest problem of the Canaries is their very bad defence that cracks quite easily, and I can say it cost them a playoff spot, at least. But it was mostly noticable in their away games, as they are so dominant at home that they overcome that defensive problem.Norwich have scored 49 goals in 21 home match, which is by far the most in the league, and no one can say they won't be eager to prove themselves against the best team in the league and defeat them. Brighton won in their 1st duel very convincingly, 5:0, but as I sad, Norwich have some serious defensive problems away from home, and we also cannot compare that period of the season with this situation, when the guests have everything sorted out. On top of that, it has been very common thing that the leaders in Championship slow down a bit in the last rounds, and we all remember the case of Watford two seasons ago, under coach Jokanovic, when they lost the 1st place in the last game. Expect one great game. Good luck to all!
