Derby vs Blackburn Prediction & Match Preview

Derby vs Blackburn Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Derby County vs Blackburn Rovers
English Championship
Date: Saturday, 26 September 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Pride Park Stadium.

Even though we are in very early stage of the new football season, Derby County’s fans are pissed and demanding changes. The squad has lost five out of the last seven games across competitions, winning only one of them, so many eyes are pointed at coach Philip Cocu.

The Rams are searching for the first points this season at Pride Park on Saturday against in-form Blackburn Rovers.

At this moment you are getting the same 2.70 odds both for home and away win, which suggests a narrow encounter.

There is no way home squad would be happy with a point here, so we might see an open duel.

Derby vs Blackburn Head-to-head

Both teams have very rich football history, so fact they have met 69 times in the past doesn’t come as a surprise.

Blackburn are ahead in terms of won matches, currently leading 27 to 23. They haven’t been very successful at this stadium though, losing almost 50% of games.

Four out of the last five games ended Under 2.5 goals FT.

Last season’s match at this venue was easily won by the Rams 3-0. Goal scorers were Louie Sibley and Chris Martin (x2).

Derby vs Blackburn Prediction

As stated above, everyone expected so much more from Derby County in the opening weeks. Wayne Rooney was unable to help the squad so far, and the only goal was scored by Jack Marriott in a 2-1 loss to Luton Town last week.

Derby also got knocked out from the EFL Cup ten days ago at this stadium after losing to Preston North End. Changes are needed as soon as possible to get into the winning rhythm.

Blackburn Rovers are currently holding the record of most convincing victory in Championship season 2020/21. They demolished Wycombe Wanderers last week at Ewood Park 5-0. Adam Armstrong was man of the match, scoring a hat-trick.

The Rams definitely have the quality to be in the upper part of the table. We expect them to wake up this weekend and beat Blackburn, who had poor away stats in the previous season.

Derby vs Blackburn Bet Tips

  • Home win @ 2.70
  • Jack Marriott to score at anytime @ 3.00.
