Cardiff City vs Norwich City Prediction

Cardiff City finished 18th last season and will hope to improve significantly this season. They have signed the likes of Mahlon Romeo, Andy Rinomhota and Callum O'Dowda this summer.

Norwich City, on the other hand, have made their name as a yo-yo club, with their alternate seasons in the Premier League and the Championship leading to heavy criticism about the way the club is run.
