Norwich vs Man Utd Betting Tips & Predictions
As if a hectic Premier League fixture schedule wasn’t enough to contend with, there’s also the FA Cup programme that needs shoehorning, with Norwich and Manchester United clashing at Carrow Road on Saturday 27 June.
The Canaries are fighting a losing battle to stay in the top flight although that remains the priority until it’s mathematically impossible for Daniel Farke’s team to stay afloat. Therefore, our prediction is that the German might rotate his squad for this clash.
Some might be willing to take a punt at the odds of 5.50 that Norwich win the cup clash and dump out the Red Devils like they did to Tottenham in the previous round, although we actually like betting on Manchester United to win the game with something to spare.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team had enough chances to win at White Hart Lane in their first game back after the restart and the Norwegian would love to win some silverware during his first full season in charge at Old Trafford.
Solskjaer won this competition twice as a United player and he can call on a massive squad to help him with this aim. Paul Pogba is fit and interested, with the Frenchman potentially dominating proceedings, while Mason Greenwood is an excellent second string striker to deputise for Anthony Martial or Marcus Rashford.
United won this Premier League fixture by a 3-1 scoreline and we can see something similar happening this time, with the visitors actually available at odds-against giving up a single goal on the Asian Handicap betting market.
That means we can get our money if United only win by a single goal margin, although the way in which Southampton ran riot and won 3-0 at Carrow Road suggests that there could be a real gulf in class when it comes to these sides.
Our prediction is backing United to win by two goals or more with that one-goal margin cushion, with Pogba potentially the star player if Bruno Fernandes is rested.
