Championship Tuesday – Aston Villa v. Norwich

The championship so far this season is a very close race, although entering this match Aston Villa are 13th-place in the standings, they are only 7 points between 13th and 1st. A win for Aston Villa would love them up to 5th place in the table (above Norwich based on goal difference).
Aston Villa finished in 4th-place last year, while Norwich finished 14th.
Both teams have had mixed success as of late having the same recent three games form draw, loss, win. Norwich come into this match as a favorite for the game tomorrow which is billed to be a tough 3-goal encounter. Aston Villa are averaging only about 1.2 goals scored/game on away visits (compared to 1.9 scored/game at home) and they are conceding 1.7 goals/game on the road (compared to 1.4 conceded/game at home). Norwich are conceding 1.3 goals/game at home (which is actually higher than their 1.15 goals/game conceded away) and are scoring 1.2 goals/game at home (compared to 1.6 goals/game away).
This lines up to be a very interesting with Aston Villa are better at home, where so far the results indicate that Norwich is stronger playing away — so neither side will set up with all the advantages in their favor.
