Derby County vs Blackburn Rovers
England- The Championship
Date: Tuesday 18th September 2018
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Pride Park Stadium (Derby).

Derby have had mixed form that has seen them win 3 games in a row but that’s sandwiched by defeats including their last game where they lost away to Rotherham 1-0.

This is Chelsea legend Frank Lampard’s first season in charge of the Rams and it has been already interesting but all in all his club are in a good position. At home they have recovered well after opening the season with a huge 4-1 loss to Leeds but they more than made up for that with back to back wins against Ipswich and Preston. They are scoring goals and have 10 so far but they do have a leaky defence where they have conceded 9 goals already.

Blackburn Rovers are in mid table and have already hit some poor form with just 1 win in their past 4 games. They drew 1-1 with Aston Villa last weekend and away from home they have won 1, drawn 1 and lost 1, so it is too early to judge the club on how they will travel this season.

Derby County vs Blackburn Rovers: Head to Head

  • The last time the teams played here Blackburn won 2-1.

  • 4 of the last 5 meetings have ended in under 2.5 goals.

Derby County vs Blackburn Rovers: Prediction

Derby should win this game and we don’t expect a huge threat from Blackburn. But this is a tough league and that doesn’t mean that Blackburn will not play their part, so along with our main bet of a home win we will also add both teams to score.

Derby’s defence is their weak part of their game and it is something that manager Lampard still has not addressed.

Derby County vs Blackburn Rovers: Bet Tips
