          Norwich vs Bristol City Prediction, Tips & Stats

          The Championship season enters its final furlong this weekend, and the stakes couldn't be higher for Norwich City as they welcome Bristol City to Carrow Road.

          Norwich sit comfortably in sixth place, and a win this weekend would see the canaries mathematically secure a place in the playoffs.

          The Canaries come into this weekend on the back of a good run of form which has seen them record just one loss in their last seven league matches. This run has included impressive victories such as a 5-0 thrashing of Rotherham and a 3-0 victory over Stoke City.

          In their last league outing, Gabriel Sara's late winner saw Norwich beat Preston 1-0 at Deepdale to move closer towards securing a coveted play-off place. Brazilian midfielder Sara's 86th-minute strike dented the Lillywhites' play-off hopes and left the Canaries six points clear of seventh-placed Hull.

          Bristol City, on the other hand, are residing comfortably in mid-table at 12th and are destined to spend another season in the Championship next time round. The Robins are arguably having their best run of form of the season however it is too little too late in respect to challenging for a place in the playoffs.

          The Robins finished last month with an upset victory over Leicester who were leading the league at the time. Bristol have managed to maintain that form this month by beating Blackburn 5-0 and recording a narrow victory over Plymouth.

          When they were last in action, Bristol snatched an unlikely point at the death thanks to a Nahki Wells penalty in the 101st minute of the game. It was Huddersfield who took the lead of the game in the 81st minute, however Bristol managed to rescue a point as the game finished 1-1.

          The fixture of Norwich vs Bristol City has a long and storied history, with the two slides having first met each other in the FA Cup in 1909. Since then, the two sides have faced each other on 78 occasions, with Norwich having the far superior record, having won 39 goals.

          Norwich have dominated the recent history of this fixture and they have only lost one meeting between the two sides in the last fourteen games. The Canaries have not lost a home game against Bristol since February 2009.

          It was the Canaries who recorded a narrow victory when these sides faced off in the reverse fixture. Trailing after a first-half opener, Norwich equalised through a George Tanner own goal. In the dying seconds, substitute Adam Idah converted Kenny McLean's pass to spark wild celebrations and boost their playoff push.

          Unsurprisingly, considering their recent record against Bristol, it is Norwich who come into this weekend’s game as odds on favourites and they are currently priced @ 4/6, whilst an away win for Bristol City is priced @ 4/1 and a draw is currently @ 29/10.

          We are backing over 3.5 goals in this game because both sides have shown impressive goalscoring form in recent weeks and months. Norwich have found the back of the net in all of their last fifteen games, whilst Bristol City have scored six times in their last two league outings.

          Norwich Team News

          Jonathan Rowe, Norwich’s second highest scorer, will not be available this weekend after he suffered a muscle injury in February. Elsewhere, Onel Hernandez and Dimitris Giannoulis are not expected to feature again for the Canaries this season.

          Bristol Team News

          Rob Atkinson and Kal Naismith have been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering season ending injuries. However the return of Rob Dickie to the matchday squad will ease some of Liam Manning’s selection worries.
