Blackburn Rovers vs Brentford
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 25th August 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Ewood Park (Blackburn).
Two unbeaten sides this season draw swords on Saturday’s EFL Championship action. Blackburn Rovers the newcomers are hosting high flying Brentford team.
Blackburn have already won 6 points this season. The team plays well so far and if it manages to keep up this kind of pace there won’t be any trouble to survive in the league if that’s their primary objective. The team also has several long term injuries which may prove a decent boost when they are ready to get back into the team.
Rovers showed character midweek. They quickly went 2 goals behind against Reading but managed to recover in the second half. Charlie Milgrew got to take two penalty kicks and he managed to level the score. Blackburn were the active side and could have scored another but settled for the hard earned draw.
Brentford were amongst the stronger sides last season. The team played well but always lacked a little something to get into the top 6. This year the London side looks better prepared against the top sides.
Brentford could have struck a real blow to Aston Villa’s ambitions on Wednesday but the team just could not hold onto their lead until the final whistle. The Bees took the lead twice but The Villans relentless spirit made it to the draw. Still the team played well and challenged one of the top sides at their own ground.

Blackburn vs Brentford: Predictions
Both sides here are in decent form. Still Brentford should be counted as favourites as the team has a bit more quality and knows how to get points in such games. Blackburn are sharp up front and may find the back of the net but the main problem will be to keep Brentford away from their goal.
