On the opening weekend of the new 2022-23 EFL Championship season, Blackburn Rovers and Queens Park Rangers go head-to-head at Ewood Park.

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Can Tomasson get off to a winning start?

After five years with Tony Mowbray in charge, there is a new man at the helm at Blackburn Rovers. Former Newcastle United player Jon Dahl Tomasson, who was recently in charge of Malmo, is Rovers’ new boss.

Under Mowbray last term, Blackburn were in the mix for promotion for a large chunk of the season but fell away in the latter months. Still, it was a real season of progression for the Lancashire club. Rovers picked up 19 wins, drew 12 times and suffered 15 defeats to finish in eighth place with 69 points to their name.

(odds taken 2210 GMT, Thursday 28 July)

Blackburn will be looking for all three points in front of their own fans on Saturday. The bookies have the hosts priced at 21/20 to kick off the new campaign with a win.

Queens Park Rangers Preview – Will the Hoops return to the capital with a positive result?

Like Blackburn, Queens Park Rangers also have a new manager in the dugout for the start of the 2022-23 season. Michael Beale – who was assistant to Steven Gerrard at both Rangers and Aston Villa – has taken over at Loftus Road.

QPR were also in the hunt for promotion last term. The Hoops spent time in the Championship’s top six but also capitulated at the end. Mark Warburton’s Rangers suffered seven defeats from their final ten fixtures to end up in 11th position.

Beale will be looking to start life at QPR with a positive result on the road, but the Londoners head to Ewood Park as the 12/5 second favourites with the bookies.


Blackburn Rovers vs Queens Park Rangers Betting Advice

Back in October 2021, QPR picked up a 1-0 home win over Rovers. However, Blackburn got revenge in the reverse fixture on their own patch in February 2022, securing a 1-0 success of their own.

Blackburn have won the last five meetings between the pair at Ewood Park. Rovers have a superb recent home record over the London outfit, with QPR’s last victory in Lancashire coming way back in 1999.


Key Facts – Blackburn Rovers vs Queens Park Rangers Betting Tip

  • Rovers nicked a 1-0 victory when the two last met in February 2022
  • The duo were separated by just three points last season
  • QPR have not won at Ewood Park this century


These two finished close in the table last season, and this is a tough fixture to call at Ewood Park. Both managers would love to get off to a winning start, but we are backing the pair to play out a tense draw in game one. There is excellent value in 11/2 for the 1-1 stalemate.

Despite plenty of rumours linking Ben Brereton Diaz with a move away from Ewood Park, the Chile international will start the season in a Blackburn shirt. Brereton is priced at 15/4 to score the opening goal of this game.
