Huddersfield v Norwich predictions for Saturday’s Championship opener at the John Smith’s Stadium. Can relegated Norwich start their promotion push on the right foot?
Norwich to Win
Reason For Huddersfield v Norwich Predictions
- Norwich are unbeaten in their last 14 Championship fixtures.
- The Canaries have lost one of their last 11 matches at home to Huddersfield.
- Huddersfield have won two of their last 11 games.
Norwich ready to bounce back
Norwich were very quick to revamp their squad after relegation from the Premier League and can begin their quest for an immediate return to the top flight by defeating Huddersfield at Carrow Road.
The Canaries held their nerve by sticking with head coach Daniel Farke, despite sliding out of the Premier League with ten successive defeats.
Their losing habit continued with a 2-1 reverse at Luton in the EFL Cup first round but that was understandable with 14 players absent due to a combination of international call ups and injuries.
Most of the absentees will be available this weekend and a strong Norwich team could have too much quality for Huddersfield, who are adapting to life under new manager Carlos Corberan.
The Terriers are switching from a direct approach to a passing style of playing and looked disjointed while losing 1-0 at home to Rochdale in the EFL Cup.
Huddersfield have kept just two clean sheets in eight home games and we predict a 3-1 defeat for them in their Championship opener.
