Blackburn vs Brentford Prediction

Blackburn is at the bottom of the table at the 17th position with just 21 points from 17 league fixtures until now. The host has sufficed 6 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses in their 17 appearances in the campaign so far. Also, the Rovers have slotted in 23 goals while conceding a similar amount of 26 goals in the process.

Blackburn has recorded three losses in their last five fixtures of the league form in this season. In their previous encounter with Barnsley, the host struggled to keep the lead of 3-2 at home.

Since they had a hard time keeping the worst team in the league at bay in their home match, it is doubtful whether they can hold off the Bees in the match.

Brentford has lost only one loss in the last five clashes in their schedule. The visitor is at the 8th spot in the table with 27 points (+6 than Blackburn). Also, the Bees have sufficed 8 wins and 3 draws along with 6 losses in their 17 league matches so far.

Besides that, the guest has scored 22 goals while conceding 13 in the process. Brentford managed to win their previous league clash with Reading at home with a 1-0 scoreline. Since Reading is Blackburn’s neighbor, the Bees will be confident about facing the Rovers on the road.

In their previous away match, Brentford took all three points back home from Wigan. The match ended in a 0-3 score on the board and as Wigan is of a similar form like Blackburn, the latter can also expect similar treatment from Brentford in the upcoming match.

As such, the guest has shown more composure in the league when compared to the host. Hence, Brentford has more chance of winning the game. Also, we can expect both teams to score goals in ninety minutes.
