Chelsea vs Norwich – FA Cup: Chelsea and Norwich play this Wednesday at Stamford Bridge, on a match of the 2nd leg of the FA Cup’s quarter-finals.
Chelsea is in 4th place of the Premier League with 47 points conquered, having 14 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses so far.
On the goals chapter, the Blues count with 41 goals scored and 16 goals conceded (best defence of the competition), which therefore results on an average of 2.5 goals per match.
Despite not presenting a brilliant home record, they still have a positive one, with 8 wins on the 12 rounds they played at Stamford Bridge. Conte’s pupils are unbeaten for 10 matches, although they have gotten 4 draws on their last 4 matches.
Norwich occupies the 13th place of the Championship with 37 points conquered, having a record of 10 wins, 7 draws and 10 losses.
When it comes to goals, the visiting side has 27 goals scored (4th worst attack of the competition) and 31 goals conceded, presenting an average of 2.1 goals per match.
Curiously, their record away from home is more positive than their home record, getting 6 wins on the 14 away matches they’ve played in the league.
The team is on a positive moment of form, not having suffered a single loss on the last 5 matches they played.
Chelsea vs Norwich – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The 1st leg match finished with a goalless draw, which means Chelsea is the team with more responsibility here, because if they want to move on in this competition, they must beat Norwich.
I believe that will be the outcome of this match, even because Norwich’s manager has already stated that their priority is the league, where despite sitting in 13th place, they are only 6 points away from the promotion play-offs.
With a home win, I also expect a low-scoring affair, considering the Blues’ weak offensive production recently, since they were unable to score on their last 3 matches.
