Norwich vs Leicester Prediction and Betting Preview 28 Feb 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-0
Norwich vs Leicester PredictionLeicester City will be making the trip to Carrow Road on Friday night to take on basement club Norwich City, looking to pile on the misery on Daniel Farke’s charges. Presented with a rather easy Premier League fixture this weekend, the Foxes will be looking to drag their opponents to the cleaners.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 28
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich)
The home side have been enduring a meagre season so far, struggling to lay a major claim in the league. They currently sit bottom of the standings; a whopping seven points shy of safety with just 11 games left to play.

In fact, it appears it is only a matter of time before Norwich City’s Championship status gets approval. Such has been their mediocrity so far this term.

With Leicester City enjoying the view from the highly-averred top-four mix, they will be looking to get one over Norwich on Friday to steer further away from the chasing pack behind them. Expect a thrilling encounter between these two sides at Carrow Road.

Norwich City vs Leicester City Team News

There is no doubt that Leicester have gone off the boil over the past seven weeks, with Brendan Rodgers’ men winning just two of their last nine league and cup matches.

That run includes an EFL Cup semi-final defeat to Aston Villa, while in the Premier League they have only beaten West Ham United since New Year's Day.

Despite their disappointing points return, though, the Foxes remain third in the table and are not exactly looking nervously over their shoulder.
Finishing in the top five this season is expected to be enough to earn Champions League qualification and City have a 10-point buffer on Tottenham Hotspur in sixth.

Rodgers does not want the campaign to fizzle out, however, and this trip to Norfolk - quickly followed by an FA Cup last-16 tie with Birmingham City - offers a chance to rebuild some momentum.

Norwich will have other ideas, of course, but their recent results provide little to suggest an upset could be on the cards on Friday.

The Canaries have earned praise for some positive performances, though that only gets you so far in the Premier League.

Following back-to-back defeats to Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers - the latter a 3-0 whimper - the gap on safety is now seven points.

Top scorer Teemu Pukki is no longer scoring freely and it is perhaps not surprising that Norwich have failed to net in their last three matches.

In fact, their last two goals have come via the penalty spot, with Daniel Farke 's side not netting from open play since January 1.

Leicester may also be goalless in their last two league matches, but they had failed to score in just two of their previous 24, netting 54 times in that run.

Injured or Suspended Players
