Luton Town vs Blackburn Rovers
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 21 November 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Kenilworth Road.
The Hatters have lost just once in their last five match-days, and have definitely improved their form after the stumble they had in the first few game weeks. Currently they are placed tenth in the table, and have posted 17 points on the board.
Meanwhile, the Riversiders are going through a dismal run, and are struggling on the road nonetheless. On top of that, they also have a terrible h2h record in recent years against this opponent.
As such, expect Luton to have the edge this weekend.
However, understand that Tony Mowbray’s men have scored the most number of goals so far in this competition. Despite their struggles to consistently secure good results, their frontline has always delivered.
On top of that, Nathan Jones’s men have had difficulties in keeping clean sheets lately as well, and particularly at home. As such, expect goals to come from both teams this weekend.
Luton vs Blackburn Rovers: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Hatters won the latest encounter at home, with a 3-2 scorecard.
- They are on a winning run since 2007 against this opponent.
- They have scored two or more goals in every single clash in that period.
- At this venue, the hosts have a 100% winning record in league games in the 21st century.
Luton Town vs Blackburn Rovers: Prediction
Jones’s men were held to a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day, by Huddersfield. In the meantime, the Riversiders won 3-1 at home against QPR.
Going on, the Hatters were unbeaten in four of their last five overall games, and they had registered an eight-game winning run at the start of the season.
At home, they were unbeaten in eight of their former eleven fixtures, and one of their three losses at this venue in the past four-month period had come against Manchester United.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in six of their preceding eight match-ups, and they remained so in 11 of their past 22 road trips. On top of that, they have also lost every single h2h encounter since 2007.
Taking these observations into account, expect a positive performance from Luton this weekend.
However, Mowbray’s men are the best attacking side in the competition, and they are also desperate at the moment to put an end to their struggles. Moreover, the hosts have kept a total of just two clean sheets at this stadium over the past 23 attempts as well.
For the reasons, expect goals from both teams this Saturday.
