Blackburn Rovers vs Millwall
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 2 December 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Ewood Park.
The Lions are one of the worst performing teams in the competition at the moment. In fact, they are one of the only three squads in the league to stay winless in the last five match-days, and this list also includes the dead-last placed Derby.
Meanwhile, the Rovers are one of the few teams in the second division of English football to stay unbeaten in the last five game weeks, and they are just three points away from possessing a playoff spot.
They also have scored the most number of goals so far in the tournament, and have a good h2h record against this rival recently. And particularly at this stadium, the dominance of the hosts in h2h clashes has been even more evident.
As such, expect Blackburn to be the better team on the pitch this Wednesday.
Blackburn vs Millwall: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Five of the previous six overall wins were recorded by Tony Mowbray’s men.
- In fact, they have lost just once in the past seven-year period.
- They have scored two or more goals in seven of the preceding nine encounters.
- The hosts have won three of the previous four meetings at this stadium.
- The guests have not scored a single goal at this venue since 2013.
Blackburn Rovers vs Millwall: Prediction
The Rovers recorded a 2-1 win at home the last match-day, against Barnsley. In the meantime, Gary Rowett’s men were held to a goalless draw the past game week on the road, by Birmingham.
Going on, Mowbray’s men are on a two-match winning run (scoring five goals in the process), and had won three of their last four fixtures as well. They are also on a five-game unbeaten streak, and at home, they have lost just four times in total since November of 2019.
And two of these defeats had come against Fulham, and Leeds – currently plying their trade in the top flight.
On the other hand, the Lions are on a six-match winless run, and had failed to score in four of their preceding six fixtures. On the road, they are on a three-game winless run, and have not scored a single goal in any of these matches for over a month.
Furthermore, Mowbray’s men have a 100% winning record in h2h encounters at this venue since 2013 (barring a single meeting), and have scored two or more goals in all but one such clash.
Taking these observations into account, Blackburn are the favorites for the day.
