Market: Teemu Pukki to score anytime
Odd: 1/1 @ 888sport
In a battle royale between two sides at opposite ends of the championship table, Norwich will make the trip to St. Andrew’s on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, after clinching what was a close 1-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday over the weekend, Birmingham is desperate to build on that result. Opening midweek games with just a two-point buffer to keep from falling back into the drop zone and in the midst of a real relegation fight, the Blues have continued to gain a reputation for their glaring problems at home. With just a couple of wins to his name across all formats since early December, Aitor Karanka has also seen his team win just a couple of points at St. Andrew’s in any of his last 12 appearances. Just managing to register a single goal at home in over 500 minutes of action, it should also be noted that Birmingham suffered a 1-0 loss when they made the trip to East Anglia in the reverse match in October.
As for the visitors, who are really finding shape and taking advantage of the slides around them, Norwich has already gathered an impressive seven-point buffer at the top of the table. With a 1-0 win against Rotherham over the weekend and winning each of his last three championships on the rebound, Daniel Farke is sure to be boosted by Teemu Pukki’s recent purple patch. Leading Norwich’s charge to make an automatic return to the Premier League this year, the Finnish forward once again took the winner away at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon. Smelling a golden opportunity to extend his account midweek, Pukki has now scored four goals in just his last three Championship appearances. Already recording 17 strikes for the club and country this season, we are backing the 30-year-old to once again rank on the score sheet at St. De Andrew.
Bet: Teemu Pukki 1/1 to score anytime against Birmingham City for Tuesday’s championship @ 888 sport
