Daniel Farke wasn’t blameless for Norwich’s relegation from the Premier League last season but there was a general acceptance from the club’s fans and board that he had a very tough job on his hands.
Farke also has a tremendous amount of goodwill built up for taking the Canaries into the top flight in the first place and he has been trusted with doing do again.
The long road back to the Premier League starts with a trip to the John Smith’s Stadium to take on Huddersfield where we fancy Norwich to earn a win at 23/20 with bet365.

Norwich vs Huddersfield Betting Tips:
Huddersfield are, in many ways, a cautionary tale for Norwich.
The Terriers managed to survive for one season in the Premier League but they were well short of the quality required to stick about for the long term in the top flight and were closer to being relegated than promoted last season.
It was a lack of quality that ultimately did for Norwich as well but they look to be better placed to bounce straight back than Huddersfield.
For a start, this manager and lots of his players know exactly how demanding the Championship is and what they need to do to escape.
Norwich also have a sense of consistency with Farke and his coaching team whilst they’ve so far been to hold on to many of their most important players.
The Canaries have also done some good business in the summer transfer window which has seen them move into the favourites to win the Championship at best betting odds of 6/1 with Boylesports.
Norwich will have to be much better defensively than they were last season if they are to win promotion.
We think they can start well in that regard and beat Huddersfield fairly comfortably so consider backing the 2-0 correct score at 9/1 with Betfred.

Key Battle to Look Out For
In stark contrast to the consistency at Norwich, Huddersfield have been searching for a winning formula for a while now.
Changes to the squad, management and even at a boardroom level have not improved the situation at the club significantly and it may take some time for the Terriers to find their feet under the management of Carlos Corberán.
A lack of goals could be the main problem for Huddersfield this season so don’t expect a high scoring thriller in their opener.
A bet on under 2.5 goals looks a fairly safe one at 10/13 with 888Sport.
