England – Carabao Cup
Date: Saturday, 29 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Ewood Park (Blackburn).
Ewood Park is all set to contain a tight clash in the EFL Cup between Blackburn Rovers and Doncaster Rovers for the Saturday night party. With their home ground advantage, the Blue and Whites will aim for a celebration and the third tier contingents are far from ruining the host’s party.
Blackburn finished at the 11th spot in the Championship last season with 63 points picked up from their 46 league appearances.
Meanwhile, Doncaster was at the 9th spot in the League One table with 54 points from 34 matches.
Towards the end, their form faded a little with just three wins in the last ten fixtures. Their previous encounter last month was on the road and they lost to Luton with a 3-2 score on the board.
In the meantime, the Donny was in a two-game winning streak in the LO fixtures. They will visit on the back of a 0-1 win on the road against MK Dons last time out in March 2020.
Blackburn vs Doncaster Head-to-head (h2h)
- Only one of their four meetings has seen both teams score.
- Their previous encounter in 2018 gave a 0-1 away win for Riversiders.
- Each team has two wins from their overall four fixtures since 2013.
Blackburn vs Doncaster Prediction
Blackburn has lost only one of their recent five home matches in the schedule across all major competitions. With that advantage, they are likely to create more chances in the game.
Besides, the Riversiders are from the Championship while the visitors are from League One. The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters in ninety minutes. Along with that, we can back the host to qualify for the next round in the EFL Cup.
From their h2h history, it is seen that the goals are not raining when these two sides meet. With a low-scoring affair in hand, it will be better to go with the tip for under 3.5 goals in the clash.
