Blackburn vs Nottingham Forest Prediction & Match Preview

Blackburn vs Nottingham Forest
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 1 October 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Ewood Park (Blackburn).

Nottingham has been one of the best in the Championship this season. They have lost just once this league campaign, and with their active three-game winning streak in the competition, they are easily the best at the moment.

Moreover, on the road, the team is yet to face defeat, and there too they are on a winning run of three fixtures.

Blackburn, who’s struggling to make it to the top tier, will have to heavily lean on their home advantage to make something out of this game. But just the last match-day, they faced a loss against the newly-promoted Luton, and this supposedly has given a hit to their confidence levels.

Blackburn vs Nottingham Forest Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Two of the previous three encounters saw away wins.
  • Nine of the former ten previous battles had the hosts of the day failing to keep a clean sheet.
  • The last time these two locked horns at this stadium, spoils were shared with a 2-2 scorecard.
  • In the last six years, only once have the hosts managed a victory at this venue.

Blackburn vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

The Rovers lost three of their previous five overall ties and were winless in four of their former six. At home, the last day, they lost against Luton, who just had gained promotion.

On the other hand, Forest was invincible in 19 of their prior 22 match-ups and was so in nine of their last eleven on the road.

Moreover, recent h2h ties too have shown that the away contingent has had the upper hand. As such, rely on the guests to avoid a loss this Tuesday.

Going on, Tony Mowbray’s men found the back of the net in eight of their last nine fixtures, and in seven of their prior nine at home. Meanwhile, their opposite number failed to keep a clean sheet in seven of their previous eight trips on the road and conceded a total of seven from just the last two alone.

Taking these observations into account, the BTTS option seems a great bet for this tie.
