Birmingham vs Blackburn Prediction

Birmingham’s efforts of pulling off an upset against Leeds at home went in vain after their counterparts edged past them with a 5-4 scorecard. The hosts are now without a win in their past five games on the trot. Miserably, they have admitted defeat in four of those five fixtures as well.

On the other hand, Blackburn have not been faring any better in their recent matchups in the Championship either. At the moment, the visitors are winless in their previous three clashes, the last of which saw them lose 2-1 to Huddersfield on the road.

Piling on even more misery, the guests have not been coping well in their past meetings with this foe, especially at St Andrew’s stadium. They have not emerged victoriously in any of their last five trips here. And, have just one win from their previous ten as well.

Moreover, with just two wins from their past five outings, it goes without saying that Blackburn are in no shape to come away with the bragging rights in this one.

Be that as it may, Birmingham have been at the losing end in four of their last five games at home. Given that three of their previous five head to head meetings here have also ended as a tie, the safest punt to back would have to be a draw no bet.

Furthermore, irrespective of the result, the guests have had their names on the scoresheets in each of their last six outings.

In addition, Birmingham have not looked sharp in their own defensive third. The fact that they have just one clean sheet from their past ten matchups here certainly stands as a testament to it.

Taking into account that the guests have had their scoring boots on in seven of their previous ten trips here too, count on both teams to rack up the goals tally this Saturday.
