Football Predictions

Norwich City takes on Hull City in the Championship opener with both teams hoping for a return to the Premier League following previous shows.

Both clubs have had a disastrous campaign in the Championship in recent seasons with Norwich finishing 13th last term but they look determined to challenge for promotion slots this term under the leadership of David Wagner.

Hull on the other end finished 15th in the previous season and it is still hard to see them challenge for promotion this season but under Liam Rosenior, they’ll be hoping to do better than last season.

H2H/Stats

The teams have met 17 times in their history. Both have won five games each with the other seven ending in draws. 

Team News

Of the two teams, Norwich has been the busiest in the transfer window having signed Borja Sainz, Shane Duffy, Jack Stacey and Christian Fassnacht. Team Krul has lost his place between the sticks and is likely to be replaced by Angus Gunn. Regulars Ben Gibson and Max Aarons are expected to play an important role for the team in defence with Ashley Barnes set to be the man tasked with leading the attack.

Hull on the other hand snapped up Jason Likolo, Ruben Vinagre, Xavier Simons and club legen son Liam Delap.

Probable Line Ups

Norwich XI: Gunn, Stacey, Tomkinson, Gibson, Mumba, Sorensen, Gibbs, Nunez, Rowe, Hernandez, Barnes

Hull City XI: Ingram, Coyle, Jones, Vaughan, McLoughlin, Tufan, Docherty, Longman, Traore, Delap, Christie

Verdict

Norwich City have won 3 of their last 6 pre-season friendly matches but conceded in all of those games. Hull on the other hand scored 9 goals in their six preseason games and won only two. So while Norwich comes to this game as the favorites, there is a probability that they can concede too.
