Norwich vs Brentford Predictions 


Norwich have opened up a seven-point lead at the top of the Championship after winning five straight games. Teemu Pukki has been influential for the Canaries, scoring seven of their last 12 goals. 

Brentford have lost back-to-back away games with the Canaries to continue their winning ways.

  • Norwich have won their last 5 matches (Championship).
  • Norwich’s Teemu Pukki has scored 7 goals in his last 5 matches (Championship).
  • Brentford have lost their last 2 away matches (Championship).

Head-to-Head


Out of 59 meetings between the two sides, Norwich have a 26-22 advantage with 11 games drawn.

The reverse fixture this season ended in a 1-1 draw at Brentford. The Bees led through Ivan Toney’s first-half goal but Kenny McLean’s late equaliser earned a point for Norwich. 

Norwich Form 


Norwich extended their winning run in the Championship to five at the weekend, comfortably beating Wycombe Wanderers 2-0 away.

Teemu Pukki opened the scoring, netting his 18th goal of the season. Adam Idah sealed victory for the Canaries with a late tap in. 

Norwich have scored 12 and conceded two in their last five matches.

Daniel Farke’s side have lost just two games in their last 14 matches in all competitions. They have also won seven and drawn two of their last nine home games. 

Norwich Injuries and Team News


Todd Cantwell missed out for Norwich at the weekend and could return to the starting XI against Brentford. 

Onel Hernandez replaced Cantwell for the 2-0 win over Wycombe at the weekend and Ben Gibson came in for the rested Christoph Zimmerman in defence.

Goalkeeper Orjan Nyland is close to a return, but Sam Byram and Michael McGovern remain out long term for the Canaries. 

Brentford Form


Brentford have recorded back-to-back victories following a 2-1 home win over Stoke at the weekend.

Jacob Brown scored for Stoke in the first minute but Brentford replied with two second-half goals from Vitaly Janelt and Ivan Toney to earn all three points. 

The Bees ended a run of three straight defeats when winning 3-0 at home against Sheffield Wednesday last week. 

Thomas Frank’s side have lost their last two away games in the league, including a 2-0 defeat to Coventry on their last road trip.

Brentford were top of the Championship but have dropped to second and are now seven points off Norwich.

Brentford Injuries and Team News


Brentford will be without defenders Pontus Jansson and Rico Henry. Midfielder Shandon Baptiste is also ruled out. 

Frank made two changes for Brentford’s 2-1 win over Stoke. Josh Dasilva replaced Mathias Jensen in midfield and Bryan Mbeumo started in place of Sergi Canos up front. 

Brentford could see more rotation against Norwich as the Bees play their fourth game in 11 days.
