Blackburn vs Wigan
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 12th March 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Ewood Park (Blackburn).
Two of the very few teams in the Championship that have not seen a win in quite some time take on each other this Tuesday. While Blackburn has built some safety buffer of points, in anticipation of the end of the season, the same cannot be said about Wigan.
The visitors are just two spots and three points above the cut-off line. And to add insult to ultimate injury, they are the worst team on the road bar none, in the entire competition. The team has secured just six points away from home, this whole season.
At the same time, Blackburn, before coming against some titans like Middlesbrough, Bristol City etc, was having a good time in front of their home crowd. With Wigan set to be their next visitors, the hosts will surely be looking to cash in on the opportunity.

Blackburn vs Wigan Prediction
The hosts took on quite a heavy schedule at home, as well as on the road, in the recent match-days, and the effects have been reflected in their results. As a respite, they have got a chance to welcome the worst road team in the tournament, and for sure, Blackburn will be targeting nothing but a win.
Wigan is on a winless run of 17 games on the road and has just one win in their last 21 attempts. On top of that, they lost four of their last five visits to this venue and drew the fifth. Also, nine of the last ten h2h wins at this stadium went to the home team, and overall h2h record too gives the advantage to the hosts. The last seven overall h2h wins in a row and 14 of the last 15 went for the team with the home advantage.
And finally, Blackburn remained unbeaten in 15 of their last 20 home ties, and against the absolute worst road team of the total 24 in contention, they are expected to emerge victoriously.
As a side note, since the home team is going in for the maximum three points on offer, it’s an almost sure bet that they will not concede in the first 45 minutes.
