Norwich take on the visitors Millwall in the round 5 match of English Championship. The match will be played on Friday, August 19th at Carrow Road (Norwich).
Norwich were clearly looking forward to another start this season. The Canaries fly into the Premier League, then plan back to the Championship. Daniel Farke twice lifted his wards in the Premier League, but the relegation in the spring was already fixed under his successor, Dean Smith. Although he could not keep the team in the "elite", but at the same time this specialist kept his job. But perhaps they already regret it. Yes, this is just the beginning of the new season, and after the departure, the sale was inevitable. But in the first matches, only Birmingham managed to win at home, and then in the League Cup. And only on Tuesday it turned out to beat Huddersfield at home. Shinani flashed: his goal and pass created an advantage of 2 goals by the 16th minute.

Millwall is more famous for its fans than for sports results. The Lions are considered a fairly popular club, despite being based in London - and there are enough football teams there, and quite strong and ambitious ones. But at the same time, everything that happens in this segment is trite to stay in the Championship. Last season, the wards of Gary Rowett (who has been in office since 2019) were able to take a fairly significant 9th place. Within the framework of the Championship there are quite good results. The London club won against Stoke City and Coventry at home. On the road, however, there was a defeat for Sheffield United. And with Swansea there was a miraculous salvation: in the 93rd minute it was 0-2, but Millwall managed to get a draw!
Millwall have won 1 of their last 10 head-to-head matches. Moreover, Norwich has not lost in 5 last meetings with the capital's opponent. But in the last round of confrontations, in the 2020/2021 Championship season, both times were 0-0. Millwall gave a lot of strength and emotions to the comeback, and it is not surprising that Norwich is the favorite at home. But still, you should think about the option with "over 2.5 goals".
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 scored goals.
