Derby County vs Blackburn Rovers: Prediction

Blackburn has been dominating in head to head games against the Rams. They are on a 2 match winning streak against them which makes 4 wins in 5 recent meetings across all venues. Even though Derby has won 2 matches against Rovers at home, the visitors are also unbeaten at this ground in 2 matches now. So I expect the visitors to get a narrow win at Pride Park.

Both teams scored in 8 previous games of Derby. They have never failed to score in 7 matches at home on the trot. The visitors have also scored in every game since October 2019. So I am backing both sides scoring with the away side emerging as winners.
