The Canaries head to Wembley this Bank Holiday Monday knowing that a win in the Championship play-off final against Middlesbrough would book their place in the Premier League and an estimated £120m windfall.
Norwich face a stern test because they face a strong Middlesbrough side that have the best defence in the Championship. Both teams played really well in their semi final matches Norwich beating Ipswich (agg 4-2) and Middlesbrough disposing of Brentford 5-1 on aggregate.
Football Betting Offers – Norwich are 13/8 for the win, with Middlesbrough at 19/10, and the Draw at 23/10.
Middlesbrough – Striker Patrick Bamford missed the semi-final second-leg win over Brentford and is a concern.
Norwich – Striker Lewis Grabban is available again after returning from his suspension.
With the likes of Bradley Johnson, Nathan Redmond and Cameron Jerome Norwich have the ability to score goals from anywhere and this could be the difference today. After coming through a very tough play off semi final against their arch rivals Ipswich, Norwich may now have the confidence to take it to Middlesbrough in the Wembley final.
It’s not going to be easy breaking down Boro’s strong defence, but Norwich have the attacking quality up front to nick this one.
