Brentford vs Blackburn Prediction & Match Preview

Brentford vs Blackburn
English Championship
Date: Saturday, 2 February 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Griffin Park (Brentford).

Blackburn Rovers joined the promotional race thanks to a phenomenal thread of four consecutive league wins. They kept an amazing spell of form going six days ago bagging three goals without any response past the in-form Hull City side at Ewood Park.

The Riverisders are now only three points below Derby County in sixth. Can they maintain such splendid streak and claim fifth successive Championship win on Saturday afternoon against Brentford?

The visit to Griffin Park is certainly not the easiest of trips to make in the division, especially with the Bees flying high in recent outings. Brentford are unbeaten in pas eight matches across competitions. They win two on the bounce in Championship netting as many as seven goals past the likes of Stoke City and Rotherham United in the process.

Brentford vs Blackburn: Head-to-head

Blackburn are enjoying a phenomenal streak of four straight wins in H2H games with the Bees.

The Riversiders claimed a narrow 1-0 victory when these two likes met each other in late-August last year.

Blackburn won each of last two H2H games with Brentford at Griffin Park (0-1 and 1-3).

Brentford vs Blackburn: Prediction

The hosts did produce goals with ease in the opposite half, but they also allowed plenty at the other end. They could not see off a National League side Barnet in Monday’s FA Cup fixture at The Hive Stadium (3-3). The Bees also allowed two goals to the likes of Rotherham United in the previous league fixture (2-4 win at AESSEAL New York Stadium).

Blackburn won four on the spin in the league conceding just one goal in the process. They kept a clean sheet against the in-form Tigers last time out. Since the visitors won each of last four head to head games with Brentford, we just have to find the value in backing the away win at the sky-high 3.80 odds. More conservative punters will definitely fancy Blackburn not to lose at the odds of 1.90.
