We offer you our version of the predictions for the Norwich City vs Watford match. We hope our assumption will turn out to be close to the real outcome.
Daniel Fark’s team is still the only Premier League team that has not earned a single point in the Championship.

In the fourth round, the team was defeated with a minimum score of 0-1 in the game against the London-based football club Arsenal.
The guests, unlike the hosts, are in a slightly better position. Chisco Muñoz’s charges have 3 points and 15th position in the standings. Of the four matches played, it was only in the 1st round game that Watford managed to achieve success; the other matches were continuous failures. In the 4th round, which was played at home, Watford lost 0-2 to Wolverhampton.
