Blackburn vs Derby Prediction & Match Preview

Blackburn vs Derby
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 9th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Ewood Park (Blackburn).

Derby sits just outside the playoff spots as of now, but do have a prospect to jump a spot higher coming through. Bristol City, the team which they are trying to replace, has a tough fixture this weekend, against West Brom, another top-four team, and is likely to lose points. If Derby is able to take advantage of their tie against the struggling Blackburn, a shot at the Premier League is possible.

Blackburn has been really going through a slump. They lost four of the last five matches in the league, and are in no position or situation to mount a challenge to the top-six positions. They might be at home, but even home advantage has proved to be not that useful in gaining points for them.

Blackburn vs Derby Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Three of the last five wins belong to Derby.
  • Five of the last six games failed to have both teams on the scorecard.
  • Six of the last nine encounters at this venue had the same stat as well.
  • Derby kept four clean sheets in their last six attempts.

Blackburn vs Derby Prediction

Derby has been winless in their last five games and scored nine goals from their last two alone. They also managed to record three of the last five h2h wins. On the other hand, Blackburn lost nine of their last eleven matches and four of their last five at home. The team was also winless in ten of their last eleven fixtures.

Going on, Derby has a huge chance to usurp Bristol in the league table, and take possession of a playoff spot, considering they have an easier fixture, while Bristol takes on West Brom. Expect Derby to avoid a loss at all costs.

Building on, the struggling Blackburn, with practically no purpose to play hard, since they are far from both the playoff positions and the relegation fight, will be kept at bay by the Derby defense. Also, Derby had recorded four clean sheets in their last six h2h encounters. The chance for both teams to find the back of the net is extremely low.
