Norwich vs Watford Free Betting Tips
The Klopp protected have a chance to make a big step towards the title with a home win at Anfield. The twelfth matchday will also be opened with a firecracker duel – a relegation skier. On Friday night, the two last-place finishers face each other on Carrow Road – Norwich welcomes Watford!
Both teams crave the experience of success in order to be able to work a little more quietly during the international break. The newcomer from Norwich has already celebrated two wins, while the guests from Watford have won none of the first eleven Premier League games.
Nevertheless, Watford could pass the Red Lantern to the Farke Elf with an away win at Carrow Road. The bookmakers offer identical odds in the three-way market between Norwich and Watford and therefore see no team in the role of favorites.
Norwich – Statistics & Current Form
With Germany power around head coach Daniel Farke Norwich fixed in the past season, the return to the Premier League. Also in the English football upper house Farke remained true to his offensive football.
The team always looks for the way forward and does not hide in games against top teams. Sensational was undoubtedly the 3-2 home win on Matchday 5 against champions Manchester City.
After the victory against the Citizens slipped the climber, however, in a crisis, five of the last six league games were lost. Of enormous importance for the canaries on Friday night against Watford the first goal.
The statistic shows that Norwich won only one of the last 48 (!) Premier League games, in which the opponent scored the 1: 0. Basically, Norwich can almost copy the game after a 0-1 deficit, because 42 games (or 22 of the last 23) were lost afterwards.
At the beginning of the season, Finnish striker Teemu Pukki (formerly with Schalke under contract) excelled. From his first eleven shots on goal, five found their way to the finish line; in the end he lost this marksmanship. Only one of 19 shots on goal caused a killing of the canaries. With six goals this season and two assists, the veteran was directly involved in eight of the eleven Norwich goals.
Goals are also needed, as Norwich has never played zero in their last nine Premier League home games. In seven games, there was even more than one goal to cope. Given these numbers, on Friday between Norwich and Watford, the prediction for the over 2.5 is recommended – goals seem to be guaranteed.
Expected lineup of Norwich:
↪ Krul – Lewis, Godfrey, Tettey, Aaron – Trybull, McLean – Hernandez, Stiepermann, Buendia – Pukki
Last Games from Norwich:
⚽️ 02.11.2019 – Brighton & Hove Albion Vs. Norwich City 2: 0 (Premier League)

Watford – Statistics & Current Form
While Daniel Farke continues to coach Norwich City despite recent failures, Sir Elton John’s favorite club has already had a change of coach.
Javi Gracia had to leave his place for fellow countryman Quique Sanchez Flores after the fourth round of the match. The 54-year-old was already in the 2015/16 season for a year at Watford and occupied the 13th place in the table.
However, his second term has not yet worked out as desired. Watford has played nine competitive games since taking office, and only in the League Cup against championship representative Swansea City has the Premier League tipped the heels. In the Premier League Watford is still waiting for the first victory of the season.
Should there be no victory on Friday night in Norwich, the Hornets would be only the fifth team in the Premier League, which wins none of the first twelve games. Most recently, this feat succeeded the Queens Park Rangers in the 2012/13 season.
To win a football game, goals are needed. With only six goals this season, Watford has by far the weakest offensive in the league. The Hornets are the only team that has not yet hit double digits.
The lack of a top striker is made clear by the fact that not a single player scored more than one goal. The absence of Troy Deeney hurts all the more! The 31-year-old had to undergo a knee operation after the second matchday and missing since then due to injury.
With every game without success, the pressure on Watford is even greater. After all, there is hope that the performance in recent weeks was quite okay. After three draws in series (including away at Tottenham), it put on last weekend against Chelsea a narrow 1: 2 defeat.
Nevertheless, it is incomprehensible to us that a team without a win of the season is favored in an away game. Value can not be seen between Norwich and Watford when tapping on the score.
Expected formation of Watford:
↪ Foster – Masina, Kabasele, Dawson, Cathcart, Janmaat – Pereyra, Doucoure, Chalobah, Deulofeu – Gray
Last Games by Watford:
⚽️ 02.11.2019 – Watford Vs. Chelsea 1: 2 (Premier League)

⚽️ 26.10.2019 – Watford Vs. Bournemouth 0: 0 (Premier League)
⚽️ 19.10.2019 – Tottenham Vs. Watford 1: 1 (Premier League)
⚽️ 05.10.2019 – Watford Vs. Sheffield United 0-0 (Premier League)

A footballing treat will certainly not be the prelude to the twelfth Premier League matchday. There is not much self-confidence in the camp of the hosts nor among the guests. In order not to lose any connection to the non-relegation spots early on, only the result counts on Friday – the how does not matter at all.
Accordingly, we expect much fight and passion, but little football finesse. These conditions let between Norwich and Watford the tip on the under 2.5 appear quite interesting.
Key Facts – Norwich vs Watford tips
💫 The last nine PL home games Norwich has never played to zero!
💫 Three of the last four direct duels have won the Canaries of Norwich!
💫 No player at Watford has scored more than one goal this season!
Even more interesting – and certainly more risky – we see between Norwich and Watford the prediction for the home win. How so? Norwich has certainly delivered the worse results in the final rounds, but speaks both the home advantage and the direct comparison for the canaries.
In addition, eleven league games without a single victory should not be underestimated. The pressure at Watford is enormous, because with another defeat, the Flores Elf would be cemented in last place.
With the fans in the back, we therefore see the home side easily in the advantage. The bookmakers offer however between Norwich and Watford slightly higher odds for the prediction on the home win. We do not share this opinion. We consider the opportunity-to-earnings ratio to be lucrative and make a bet of five units to win the canaries of Daniel Farke!
