Blackburn vs Rotherham
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 10 November 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Ewood Park (Blackburn).

Two promoted teams from League One will face each other for the first time this season in the Championship on Saturday.

Rovers are 8th in the table with 6 wins in 16 matches and tend to draw more matches. They have scored a decent 19 goals but conceded one more goal till now. In the recent 6 matches across all venues, they have 3 wins and 2 defeats.

They have won the last 2 games at home on the trot and have lost only 1 game in last 6 matches. This is the best possible performance for a newly promoted team.

With a win in this match, Blackburn can go into a playoff position and it will be their 3rd consecutive home win too.

Rotherham was without a win for 8 games since September. But they broke that run when they won at home against Swansea in the last match. They are one of the three clubs in the competition to not win a game on the road. In the 8 games they played away from home, 6 matches ended as a defeat and 2 matches was a draw.

A 7 game losing streak was going on away games for the Millers, which was finished with the recent 2 draws against Middlesbrough and Preston.

The best result the away team had in games on the road was 2 draws in their last two matches, but the hosts are favorites going into this match.

Blackburn vs Rotherham: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Blackburn is undefeated in 7 previous h2h matches, which includes 5 wins.
  • Last 3 h2h matches had under 2.5 goals.
  • Blackburn is on a 4 game winning streak at home against this opposition.

Blackburn vs Rotherham: Prediction

Blackburn is on a formidable run of form especially at home with 6 games unbeaten record in last 7 matches in front of their home crowd. They only lost one match which was against Sheffield United who is third in the table. Meanwhile, the visitors have never won an away match. So it is safe to beat on the home side to win with 1.73 odd.

In 9 of the league games played by the rovers, the score was below 2.5 goals which include 5 home games. From the 16 games that the away side played, 11 matches had under 2.5 goals which also includes 6 of their 8 games on the road.
