Kick-off: 1500, 05/10/2019
Stadium: Carrow Road
Norwich did the double over Aston Villa in the Championship last season and are again tipped to come out on top when they meet at Carrow Road in the Premier League.
The Canaries have played well at home since returning to the top flight, whereas the visitors have suffered three straight away defeats so far.
Punters can get 13/10 for City to prevail here and that is a percentage pick for our initial Norwich vs Aston Villa prediction.
A Look At Norwich City’s Betting Odds
Norwich must pick themselves up following back-to-back 2-0 losses at Burnley and Crystal Palace, but memories of a previous 3-2 win over Manchester City at this venue remain.
City have also beaten Newcastle 3-1 at Carrow Road and battled gamely in a 3-2 loss to Chelsea, so it looks as though their home form will be crucial to their survival chances.
Daniel Farke has been rocked by injury problems, with goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann and Jamal Lewis the latest casualties at Palace.
However, the manager told the club website: “It was clear that there would be difficult periods during this season. We have to stick together and show great commitment and desire.
“Carrow Road will be a fortress again next week. We have to go through this difficult time together.”
Farke will continue to play open football, so 5/2 for a home win and both teams to score appeals from the Norwich vs Aston Villa odds.
Last Norwich line-up: Fahrmann, Aarons, Godfrey, Lewis, Leitner, Cantwell, Buendia, Stiepermann, McLean, Amadou, Pukki.
A Look At Aston Villa’s Betting Odds
Villa boss Dean Smith was keen to focus on the positive aspects of last weekend’s 2-2 home draw with Burnley.
He declared: “We have dominated a team that some struggle to play against. If there was one team who were going to win it, it was going to be us.”
However, the Midlands outfit twice surrendered the lead in that contest, having been put ahead by Anwar El Ghazi and then John McGinn.
Defensive frailties have also seen them concede six times at Tottenham and Arsenal after being in front, while there was another away loss at Palace, too.
The visitors have tasted defeat on their last four trips to Carrow Road, so the omens do not look good for them to cure their travel sickness here.
City prevailed 2-1 in both Championship meetings last term and 35/4 for a repeat of that scoreline completes our Norwich vs Aston Villa betting tips.
Last Villa line-up: Heaton, Targett, Engels, Guilbert, Mings, McGinn, Grealish, Nakamba, Hourihane, El Ghazi, Wesley.
Crystal Palace 2-0 NORWICH
ASTON VILLA 2-2 Burnley – Anwar El Ghazi, John McGinn
Head-to-head: Aston Villa 1-2 Norwich, Norwich 2-1 Aston Villa, Norwich 3-1 Aston Villa, Aston Villa 4-2 Norwich
