Swansea vs Blackburn Prediction

West Brom visited Swansea in the previous league clash and went back with three points from a 5-1 thriller. It marked the fifth winless game in a row for the Swans.

Swans have three losses in their last five clashes in the campaign. And significantly, two of the last three defeats occurred at their own turf. Apart from that, they lost 4 of the last five home matches.

Having lost the last two matches at home, Swansea shows a rare chance to bounce back into the league especially against Blackburn.

Blackburn Rovers will be visiting after defeating Derby at home with a 1-0 score on the board. They are now on a four-game winning run in the league.

However, it is difficult to say they have the clear upper hand though. In their away fixtures, the Rovers have met with defeat six out of nine times in the contest.

The visitor had only one win in the last five matches away from home, and that too was against the weaker team, Stoke City.

Hence, it is hard to confirm the winner in the match. It can be anyone’s game at the Liberty Stadium.
However, based on their h2h stats and current form in the campaign, it is likely to see both teams scoring goals in ninety minutes. Also, their overall score might not cross the 3.5 goals mark in the game.
