Norwich didn't impressed with their results in this season and ten points separates them from play off zone, they are out of that race and in last three rounds will be without competitive motive, in 44th round of English Championship they are welcoming leaders Brighton which in case of victory would win the title. This will for sure be an interesting match and despite hosts are favorites it won't be easy at all to defeat one of the strongest teams in league. In previous round they celebrated away from home against 10th placed Preston, before that suffered defeat against pretty good Fulham, tonight must show some quiet good skills to earn points against strong opponents.
Norwich failed to keep their Premier league status in previous season and now are without chances to win their ticket to return among elite, they were struggling to find consistency in their game in this season and despite are one of the most effective teams in league they failed to reach upper part of the table, main reason for that was pretty bad defense, they conceded 66 goals in 43 rounds and i just don't believe that will manage to save their net tonight against great offensive minded guests. In first meeting with Brighton in this season were smashed on the road, in that match conceded five goals without scoring, now they should be able to at least score but i doubt that will win. Defender Timm Klose (30/1), midfielders Jarvis (0/0) and Louis Thompson (3/0) are injured and will miss this game while midfielder Alex Tetey (35/0) is in doubt due to injury issues.
Brighton meanwhile finally managed to reach one of the strongest leagues in Europe, they are at leading position at the table in Championship with seven points more than second placed Newcastle, they already secured promotion but if win this match they will also win the title, they are in great shape and to this match are coming after five straight victories and i believe that can extend that streak and achieve another one, they are one of the most effective teams in league while have also best defense and they fully deserved that promotion.
Most of they defeats came away from home, however despite are underdogs here they are in really great shape and will go for another victory, their performances were great and they must give their best to win the title and end it in best possible way. For the first time in their history Brighton will play in Premier league, atmosphere in locker room is great and i'm pretty sure that tonight will manage to celebrate once again. Hosts are decent side and it won't be very easy to defeat them but Brighton proved their quality and i believe in their victory. Visitors are coming here without injured defenders Shane Duffy (31/2), Connor Goldson (5/0), Sam Adekugbe (1/0) and forward Sam Baldock (30/11).
Norwich don't have much to play for, they can't reach play offs and simple must wait for the next season and then try to get back into strongest English league, tonight are marked as favorites against main pretenders for the title in Championship but i just doubt that will win this game, guests are coming here after great series of results and will go for another victory so i'll risk and place my bet on victory of visitors.
