Norwich have lost just one of their last nine Championship games under the guidance of David Wagner.

- Sixteen of Norwich's 38 Championship matches have produced over 3.5 goals
- Plymouth have scored in eight of their last nine away games
- Recommended bet:
Over 3.5 goals

Goals have been the predominant feature of Norwich’s successful season thus far, only the runaway top four have netted more than their 69, but they have been leaky at the back too, the Canaries’ 54 conceded is the most of any side in the top half.

They take on a Plymouth side who are suffering similar issues at the other end of the table. Argyle are the top scorers in the bottom half with 54 netted but only Blackburn and Rotherham have worse defensive records in the division.

Team news

Jon Rowe, Onel Hernandez and Dimitris Giannoulis are all set to miss out for Norwich, but Shane Duffy and Jacob Sorensen should have shaken off their issues to at least play a part.

Plymouth have an important duo suspended for this long road trip, with Bali Mumba and Mickel Miller both missing out due to an accumulation of yellow cards.

The stats

Expect both teams to play their part in this one, as 22 of Plymouth's 38 Championship matches this season have seen both teams score.

Argyle have been in poor form as of late however, winning just one of their last 10 games in all competitions. They have also struggled on the road this season, picking up two victories from 19 away trips.

In contrast, Norwich have been solid at home, recording 13 wins at Carrow Road from 19 games. The Canaries have also won five of their last seven matches.


Plymouth’s season has taken a real downturn since former manager Steven Schumacher departed for Stoke in December, with his replacement Ian Foster struggling to replicate his predecessor's success.

After their poor recent run of form, Argyle are now just two points clear of the drop zone in an enthralling Championship relegation battle.

A leaky defence has been a real issue for the visitors and Norwich could be the perfect team to exploit that.

The hosts have netted eight times in their last two matches and should get plenty of joy against one of the worst backlines in the division, particularly on the road.

Nevertheless, Plymouth are not to be underestimated going forward and can contribute to a high-scoring affair.
