Watford and Norwich City face off on Friday in an English Premier League showdown at Vicarage Road. This is a big game for two teams who are hovering around the relegation zone. When these two teams faced off in September of 2021 it was Watford that came away with the 3-1 victory. 

Watford currently sits in 17th pace in the standings having picked up 14 points. In the last game against Newcastle, Watford played to a 1-1 draw. Watford had 18 shots and five shots on goal, but they could only find the back of the net once. Watford has scored 23 goals total while their defense has given up 37 goals. In the last game they gave up only one goal and the defense wasn’t terrible, so not getting more than one point is a disappointment. Emmanuel Dennis has been the top player for Watford scoring eight goals and five assists. Joshua King has also scored five goals and added three assists. 

On the other side of this matchup is Norwich City who sits in 18th place having picked up 13 points. In the last game against Everton, Norwich City was quite impressive, scoring two goals and picking up three points. Just a few games ago it looked like Norwich City would finish in last place, but now there is a real chance they could still be in the PremierLeague for another year. Norwich City has scored 10 goals total while their defense has given up 45 goals. Teemu Pukki has been the top player for Norwich City scoring five goals. There isn’t another player that has scored more than a goal. 

Norwich City scored two goals in the last game, and I expect they are going to find offensive success again in this game. I also see Watford finding offensive success, and that will lead to this game going over the total. Look for a 2-1 or 2-2 type of game. Back the over.
