Cardiff City vs Norwich City Tips and Prediction
Dean Smith would have admitted that a return to the Championship was a possibility, even if he came to Carrow Road intending to keep Norwich in the Premier League.
That is what happened, with Smith winning just six of the 30 games he has coached since November 15; but, East Anglians shouldn’t take this as cause for gloom.
The majority of the team from last season is still with the club, and it has been augmented by the acquisitions of Isaac Hayden and Gabriel Sara as well as the return of loanees.
The last five weeks of the transfer window are likely to bring about additional changes, both positive and negative, but everything is set up to pursue a third Championship championship in five years.
Norwich finished preseason with losses to Celtic and Hibernian in the span of a day, after recording a noteworthy victory against Marseille earlier this month.
After a promising start as caretaker manager, Steve Morison quickly received the permanent job at Cardiff, and the Bluebirds’ 18th-place finish helped to keep them in the Championship.
Due to his ability to make significant changes to his team, Morison’s mandate has suddenly shifted, and a mid-table finish or better is now the expectation.
There are great expectations for the Welsh squad to perform well throughout the course of the season, as up to 12 new players will be trying to compete for a regular first-team berth.
Although they played League One and League Two opponents throughout the preseason, their four wins and one draw in five games can only be seen as a confidence booster before hosting the title favorites.
Cardiff will be confident in their ability to pull off one of the shocks of the opening Championship weekend with the support of their home crowd. The Norwich team feels powerful for a second-tier campaign, though, and we predict that the visitors will win this match by an odd goal in three.
