Bristol City vs Norwich City Match Analysis & Prediction
29/08/2023 9:45 pm
Bristol City will play host to Norwich City at Ashton Gate Stadium on Tuesday night, in the second round of the EFL Cup.
It is a tie between two Championship sides, with the hosts currently sitting in 14th place while the visitors are up in second.
Bristol City have had a solid start to the season, having won one, drawn two and lost just one of their opening four league matches, which leaves them in mid table.
Nigel Pearson’s side put in a very impressive performance against Oxford United at home to reach this stage of the competition, securing a 5-1 victory at the beginning of the month.
In their last game away at Hull City on Friday, the Robins played out a 1-1 draw, with Nakhi Wells bagging his second goal of the season after the hour mark, to cancel out Ozan Tufan’s opener.
At this early stage of the season, Norwich are in second place, having won three and drawn one of their opening four matches, scoring the highest number of goals of any side in the division in the process.
The only game they have not won this season was in their away game against recently-relegated Southampton, in which the Saints scored a 97th-minute equaliser to end their perfect start.
Having reached this stage of the competition by beating Queens Park Rangers 1-0 on the road, the Canaries are now tasked with beating another Championship side, who they have a very good recent record against, winning four of the last five encounters.
Bristol City vs. Norwich City Head to head
In the 26 previous meetings between these two teams, Bristol City have claimed eight victories while Norwich have won 14, and they have drawn in four. Norwich have scored 40 goals and conceded 30 in the process.
