Brighton have secured the historic promotion with three games still to play, winning for the fifth time in a row on Monday, 2-1 against Wigan. They are also virtually certain of finishing top ahead of Newcastle, enjoying a seven-point gap from their rivals. With the pressure off and celebrations well and truly on, Brighton are likely to enjoy themselves for the rest of the season. Norwich City, the biggest disappointment of the season, also have nothing to play for, having lost mathematical chances of qualifying for the playoffs. Norwich City are likely to give their fans something to cheer about and will go for attack – as they always do.
Both Norwich City and Brighton have nothing to play for, and the result is totally unpredictable, but such fixtures usually produce a lot of goals, and that is especially true when Norwich City are involved. Norwich City have the second best attack in the Championship with 76 goals scored, but also the third worst defensive record with 66 goals conceded. No team scored more goals at home than Norwich City who netted 49 times in 21 games. Brighton won't play defensively having achieved promotion, and we are likely to witness a goal bonanza. Brighton won 5-0 against Norwich City in October. The odds are generous on over 3.5 goals scored (2.62), and the odds are even better on over 4.5 goals scored (5.00).
