Who will win this Sunday's derby at Portman Road? We put it to the test with a virtual battle on recently released video game Fifa 18.

We recruited a Norwich fan, Matt Rivett, and an Ipswich fan, Eden Lelliott-Moore, and pitted them against each other at Game in Norwich.

Both play the game regularly and were backing themselves to have the skills to represent their club in the virtual arena, with local bragging rights up for grabs.

In reality, the Canaries travel across the border to Suffolk for the first East Anglian derby of the Championship season on Sunday just a point and two places above the Tractor Boys in eighth place in the table.

City go into the game on the back of an eight-match unbeaten run in derby fixtures, stretching back over eight years, but would that dominance continue in the digital world of EA Sports?
