Blackburn vs Hull City
England – Championship.
Date: Saturday, 26th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Ewood Park (Blackburn).
There is very little that separates these two sides in the table. So this match will be crucial for either team, to finish the season inside the top 10.
The hosts are 10th in the league table after 28 rounds have been completed. Like most teams in the Championship, they too are below par in terms of defending. About 41 goals have been conceded by their backline this season which is 4 better than what they scored. At present they are on a 3 match win streak in the league.
In the last 5 competitive fixtures, the Blue and Whites have lost only a game. That defeat was against Premier League side Newcastle in the FA Cup. Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those matches and they scored at least 2 in all 4 of them as well.
Two matches each have been won and lost by the team from Lancashire in their previous 5 matches at home. More than 2.5 goals were scored in total in 3 of those 5 matches at the home of the Rovers.
Hull are equal on points with their opponents for Saturday. A 5 match unbeaten run in league games is going on for the Tigers at the moment. From their last 10 competitive matches, Hull has lost only a game, which was in FA Cup. In 8 of those 10 games, Nigel Adkins’ team played, over 2.5 goals were recorded at the full time.
But recent away form is not that great, with the visitors winning only 2 of the last 5 matches on the road. All but one of those games had over 2.5 goals at the final whistle. We can expect a high scoring match at Ewood Park this weekend.
