Rotherham vs Derby Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Rotherham vs Derby
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 3 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Aesseal New York Stadium (Rotherham).

Rotherham has been unbeaten for the past three clashes in the campaign. They had two wins in it, and both of those victories came on the road.

Another three points would take them out of the relegation zone as it stands. The 3-0 win on the road against Middlesbrough last time out in the schedule will improve the morale ahead of the upcoming clash.

Derby is on a two-game winning streak in the league as of late this season. Both of those wins came against teams sitting below the 18th position on the table as it stands. They had two losses in their recent five fixtures in the campaign. They will visit on the back of a 0-1 win on the road against QPR last time out in their overall schedule.

Rotherham vs Derby Head-to-head (h2h)

Rotherham vs Derby Prediction

In their last four h2h meetings at this venue, three matches have ended as a draw. Out of those four clashes, three of them had seen both teams scoring.

Derby will visit on the back of a win, which backs them to create chances in the game and probably at least a goal in ninety minutes. Hence, the tip for BTTS will probably come in handy at the goals area of the encounter to yield decent returns.

Derby is on a winning streak in the campaign, which will give them a slight edge for the visitor. Besides, the Rams have been on a decent form on the road too. They have lost only one of their last five outings in the league.

In the meantime, the Millers have only one win in their last five clashes at home. So, the double chance favoring Derby will probably be the best bet for the punters.
