Norwich vs Brentford in the Premier League on Mar 5. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Norwich vs Brentford in the Premier League on Mar 5. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

With the positions that Norwich and Brentford currently find themselves in, Saturday’s meeting at Carrow Road does not necessarily have all the hallmarks of a relegation six-pointer.

Then again, there is no doubt that both clubs are in desperate need of a win in the Premier League and if either is on the losing side this weekend, their plight will only worsen by a considerable amount.

2-2 Draw

With both teams in desperate need of a Premier League win, Saturday could prove to be a rather cagey affair and although that usually means a bore draw and nothing more, there could be a fair few goals on show at Carrow Road.

If only because Norwich have conceded at least two goals in their last three Premier League outings both home and away, while Brentford have the same unwanted record in each of their last nine away days.

Which means a look at the best betting sites, throws up a tempting price for a 2-2 draw at the weekend and if like me, you also think that will be the case, you can back this outcome at odds of 16/1 with Sportnation.

Norwich Form, squad news, opinion

Just one point from the last 12 on offer. That is the tale of the tape for Norwich right now and with the Canaries having also lost each of their last three outings, they find themselves stuck at the foot of the Premier League table.

Admittedly the fixture computer has not been kind to Norwich in recent weeks and after being crushed by Manchester City at Carrow Road, they were then eventually humbled by Liverpool at Anfield.

However, it is their showing away at Southampton last Friday which will arguably be of greater concern and after a rather lacklustre performance against the Saints, it has only added more pressure on this Norwich side.

A Norwich side that has lacked considerable bite this season and with talisman Teemu Pukki getting colder in front of goal, the likelihood of the East Anglian outfit being relegated has increased by some magnitude.

Which is why the visit of Brentford is one attached to rather high stakes and if Dean Smith can mastermind a first league win in five attempts, it will give the Canaries reason to sing again.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Brentford, Norwich boss Dean Smith can call on a clean bill of health and this means each of this 25-man squad will be available for the weekend.

Brentford Form, squad news, opinion

If there is one thing you do not want to be at this point of the season, it is out of form and that is the one thing that Brentford currently find themselves in. With no win from their last eight Premier League matches, things are starting to get nervy in West London.

Because before this unwanted run began, there was always the sense that Brentford would be just fine and after a relatively impressive start to the campaign, there was no need for manager Thomas Frank to be concerned.

However, a couple of months is a very long time within the world of Premier League football and their previous state of relaxation is now one of genuine concern and that concern may only amplify by the end of Saturday afternoon.

If Brentford fail to end their run of unwanted results at Carrow Road or even worse slip to another defeat - one that would be their eighth reverse from their last nine Premier League outings, then they will slip closer to the relegation trapdoor.

Which is why there is so much riding on their next Premier League game and if the worst does happen, the Brentford chairman may also have to decide whether Thomas Frank is still the right man for the job.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Norwich, the same injury free status is afforded to Thomas Frank. However, he must do without the services of Josh Da Silva after his sending off against Newcastle last Saturday.

History

When it comes to the rivalry between Norwich and Brentford, it is not one that is necessarily steeped in history. With that said, there is every chance that some form of history could be made at the weekend, as both teams are in desperate need of a win.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, Norwich have won on 28 occasions, Brentford 22 and there have been 11 draws

About the Venue

Carrow Road is one of English football’s more compact grounds and with the Norwich fanbase being in close proximity to the players on the field, this can either be a help or a hindrance to the Canaries.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

When it comes to the Premier League odds for relegation, Norwich are considered by many betting sites to be favourites to suffer the drop and on recent evidence you would have to say rightly so.

However, Brentford’s price in the same market has shortened dramatically in the past couple of weeks and if they suffer a loss to the Canaries, it may be time to put the house on the Bees also being demoted.
