Hull City vs Blackburn Prediction & Match Preview

Hull City vs Blackburn Rovers
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 20 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: KCOM Stadium (Hull).

After back-to-back losses in their first two match-days, Blackburn finally has registered a win on the board. The last day, they had the home advantage against Middlesbrough, and courtesy an early penalty, they held on to the slender 1-0 lead to post three very valuable points against their name in the points-table.

Despite that, they could return to their losing ways this Tuesday, considering they are taking on Hull, and that too on the road. The hosts of the day have lost just once this campaign, and that was against the top-tier Swansea. Moreover, they won their only match at home so far, too.

Hull City vs Blackburn Prediction

Blackburn was winless in 12 of their last 15 official road games and conceded twice or more in eight of their previous such ten fixtures. On the contrary, Hull has lost just once in their previous ten official match-days in front of the home crowd.

While the struggles that Hull has had over the course of the last few years against this opponent could be cause for worry, current form, and home advantage dictates the hosts as the favorites.

Still, not to go overboard, we will opt for the Double Chance with Hull.

Going on, these two sides have always struggled to find the back of the net whenever they have lined up against each other. A general trend has been for the favorite to keep a clean sheet and register the win.

Along the same lines, count on this game to not be a goal-fest, and as such, goals from both squads might be too much to ask for.
