Blackburn vs Swansea
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 5th May 2019
Kick-off at 12.30 UK/ 13.30 CET
Venue: Ewood Park (Blackburn).
Swansea may be higher in the table, and nearer to the playoff mix, but their away record has been one of the poorest in the league. Their respectable stature in the competition is almost only due to their home ties.
In the season-ender, they are going against a Blackburn, who has been having a great time in the league the last few match-days.
Their only loss, albeit only winless tie in the last five attempts, was against none other than Norwich, the potential champions of the tournament.
The team will have to face a stiff challenge from Swansea though, as they are determined to not let their road form affect their prospects for next season. As such, they’ll be inclined to put on a good show this weekend.

Blackburn vs Swansea Prediction
Swansea lost seven of their last eight away ties and scored just two goals in their last five trips. Meanwhile, they conceded two or more goals in six of the last eight road fixtures.
In their last eight attempts on the road, the only time they avoided a loss was against the dead-last team in the table, the already relegated Ipswich.
Blackburn, meanwhile, won four of their last five matches – the fifth one being against table-toppers Norwich. They also won three of their last four home-ties.
Importantly, Blackburn won every single game against Swansea at this venue and has scored three or more goals on every occasion.
Keeping in line with the trend, expect Swansea to lose by a big margin, despite their efforts to avoid it. The hosts are simply on another level as of now, compared to the guests for the day.
