Blackburn Rovers Preview – Will the Blue and Whites bounce back?

Blackburn Rovers have made a decent enough start to their season, winning six, drawing five and losing five of their opening 16. Before the midweek match with Fulham, Rovers had won two on the spin.

Blackburn had a night to forget on Wednesday, crashing to a heavy 7-0 home loss to a rampant Fulham side. Neeskens Kebano, Harry Wilson and Rodrigo Muniz all scored braces, while Aleksandar Mitrovic got his customary goal.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1217 GMT, Friday 5 November)

Wednesday’s humbling defeat was Blackburn’s first home reverse since losing to West Bromwich Albion back in August. Tony Mowbray’s men will be hoping to bounce back with a positive result for their home fans on Saturday. The hosts are priced at 19/10 to get the points.

Sheffield United Preview – Can the Blades return to Sheffield with three points in the bag?

Since taking over at Sheffield United, Slavisa Jokanovic has had an indifferent time at Bramall Lane. United are currently in 16th spot with 19 points to their name after five wins, seven defeats and four draws.

After a 1-0 home loss to Blackpool last weekend, Sheffield United bounced back with a point at Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night. Morgan Gibbs-White gave United a late lead, though Lewis Grabban pulled one back for the hosts in the 1-1 stalemate.

Blackburn Rovers vs Sheffield United Betting Advice

This will be the first league meeting between the two sides since December 2018. United eased to a 3-0 win back then, with Billy Sharp (2) and David McGoldrick netting at Bramall Lane. The Blades also won the reverse meeting at Ewood Park that season thanks to a Sharp brace.

The sides have met once since then, with Sheffield United running out 2-1 winners on home soil in an EFL Cup tie back in August 2019.


Key Facts – Blackburn Rovers vs Sheffield United Betting Tip

  • Blackburn lost 7-0 at home to Fulham in midweek
  • The Blades have picked up just two away wins this term
  • Sheffield United have won the last three meetings


Blackburn will still be hurting from the heavy home loss on Wednesday. Mowbray’s men must dust themselves down and hunt down a positive result from this one. However, we fancy Jokanovic’s side to nick a narrow win at Ewood Park.

When they last met, Sheffield United edged a cup game by two goals to one. A repeat 2-1 Blades win here is priced at 17/2.

Billy Sharp netted home and away when these two last met in league action, and the veteran striker has scored five league and cup goals this term. Sharp is available at 7/4 for notch anytime in this one.
