Rotherham vs Blackburn Prediction & Match Preview

Rotherham vs Blackburn
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 3rd March 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Aesseal New York Stadium (Rotherham).

Both Rotherham and Blackburn have shown consistency in avoiding wins, and in that sense, have been considerate to their fans, without giving false hopes. But Blackburn can afford to be complacent in this crucial phase of the season, as they have already posted a healthy distance between themselves and the relegation line, whereas it’s not the case with Rotherham.

They are just at the tip of the cut-off mark, and though they share the same number of points with Reading, is placed below them due to inferior goal difference.

Regarding their future, neither Bolton nor Ipswich seems capable of mounting a serious campaign to shed the exit-tag status, and as a result, Rotherham just needs to overcome Reading. But the task won’t be that easy since the latter at least shows some intent in their gameplay.

Rotherham vs Blackburn Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The last two meetings and three of the last four ended in draws.
  • Four of the last five had goals from both teams.
  • The last two encounters at this venue also ended in stalemates.
  • The last two games at the Aesseal New York Stadium witnessed goals at either end of the pitch.

Rotherham vs Blackburn Prediction

The last five games in a row that involved Rotherham, were draws, and the last nine were winless for them. At home, their last 13 attempts saw just two wins, and a mammoth eight were stalemates. At the same time, Blackburn is winless in their last five fixtures one after the other and has just one win to their name in their last 12 road trips.

Moreover, their last two h2h meetings and three of the last four failed to produce a definitive result as well. Their last two pairings at this venue also had the same fate.

As the trends overwhelmingly suggest, a draw is the top pick for this game.

Since the teams are evenly matched in recent results, and their previous encounters also showed an affinity by both to find the back of the net (four of the last five h2h games and the last two at this stadium checked the BTTS column) – it’s expected that we will witness goals in either direction.
