EFL: Norwich vs Bournemouth

Norwich vs Bournemouth

Norwich are very close to the promotion door. They are on top of the Championship with 90 points, 15 points ahead of 3rd place Swansea. In the context of only 5 rounds in the season, 99% of "Canaries" are promoted.

Norwich vs Bournemouth

With just 1 point in the last 5 matches, Norwich will return to the Premier League. Even with 8 points more than the second ranked team Watford, Norwich just need to win 3 more wins to be sure to win.

After two consecutive draws against Blackburn and Preston, Norwich have returned to a very strong level by winning 7-0 against Huddersfield Town and 1-0 against Derby County. The last time a relegation team had beaten Norwich was Swansea in February.

Bournemouth have won 5 consecutive Championship wins and climbed to 5th place on the standings. They are the club with the best performance in the Championship in recent years. The effort to squeeze into the play-off group gives Bournemouth tremendous strength.

However, perhaps, Bournemouth's main task is to keep tickets to the promotion play-off round when they are 11 points behind the top 2. That is a big gap when there are only 5 rounds left in the season.

Bournemouth is one of the few clubs that is not afraid of Norwich at this point. They won 1-0 against this opponent at home in the first leg. However, in the last visit to Norwich's Premier League field last season, Bournemouth failed.
