Norwich v Leicester betting tips: Canaries seek lift-off

| 26.08.2021

Norwich v Leicester odds and preview

Norwich will hope history can repeat itself against the FA Cup winners as we look at some Norwich v Leicester betting tips.

The Canaries have suffered 12 successive Premier League defeats since beating Leicester at Carrow Road in February 2020 in what was the last fixture before lockdown.

After beginning with losses to Liverpool and champions Manchester City, the Canaries now take on the Foxes who were beaten 4-1 at West Ham on Monday night after seeing off Wolves 1-0 in their opener.

Match Odds

Norwich are now 8/11 favourites in the Premier League relegation odds after a torrid start, losing their opening two games by a combined score of 8-0.

Indeed, a lack of goals has been their Achilles heel in the top flight, scoring just once during their losing streak.

But they were kept off the scoresheet just four times on their way to winning the Championship title for the second time in three years and are 4/9 to score at least once here and 13/8 to break the deadlock.

The Canaries are 10/3 for the win and 27/10 to secure their first point of the campaign ahead of the upcoming international break.

Leicester, 4/5 to leave Norfolk with all three points, will be reeling from their heavy loss at West Ham, with Ayoze Perez being sent off just before the break with the Hammers leading 1-0.

Jamie Vardy, Norwich v Leicester betting tips

It is 19/10 for them to follow Liverpool and Manchester City in leading at half-time and full-time and 8/13 to open the scoring at Carrow Road.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are 9/2 in the Premier League top-four odds as they bid to make it third time lucky having missed out on Champions League football on the final day for two successive seasons.

Talking Tactics

Norwich left-back Dimitris Giannoulis has had a baptism of fire to life in the Premier League.

He faced Mohamed Salah, who had one goal and two assists, on the opening day before coming up against Gabriel Jesus at the Etihad, being hauled off at half-time.

Brandon Williams has since arrived on a season-long loan from Manchester United to give boss Daniel Farke more options in the full-back positions.

Rodgers is expected to stick to his 4-2-3-1 formation with former Canaries favourite James Maddison and Harvey Barnes providing attacking support for Jamie Vardy.

Boubakary Soumare could be in line for his Premier League debut in place of the suspended Perez while new signing Jannik Vestergaard will be monitored after missing the Hammers clash through injury.

Goalscorer Odds

Teemu Pukki’s last Premier League goal in open play came in a 1-1 draw at Leicester in December 2019.

The Finland international has barely had a kick in the opening two games so it remains to be seen if he starts here but he is 5/1 to score first and 9/5 to net at any time in Norwich v Leicester betting tips.

Naturally, Vardy is Leicester’s main scoring threat and he is 7/2 to break the deadlock and 5/4 to get himself on the scoresheet.

Maddison, Norwich’s player of the year in 2017/18 before moving to the King Power Stadium, is 2/1 to be on target against his former club.
