The Canaries are the toppers of the table, and have easily been the best in the Championship all through this campaign.They have a lead of eight points over the second-placed Watford, and with just five games remaining, it’s almost a foregone conclusion that they are about to be the title-winners.
More than the crown, the bigger prize would be the the fact that they are about to be directly promoted to the Premier League. After being relegated from the top flight at the end of 2019-20, this seems like a poetic justice for them.
Meanwhile, the Cherries are the best team in the competition based on recent form. They are on a long winning streak, and are scoring goals at will.
As of now, they are placed fifth in the table, and their obvious target is a top-six finish. Currently, they have a lead of five points over the seventh-placed Reading, and good performances in the next one-two matches should ensure their participation in the playoffs. By the looks of things, expect goals to come from both teams this weekend.
