Swansea City welcome Blackburn Rovers to the Swansea.com Stadium in EFL Championship action this Saturday.

Swansea City Preview – Swans to make home advantage count?

Swansea City had a disappointing season by their high standards last time around, with Russell Martin needing time to settle into his new surroundings after taking over from the successful Steve Cooper. However, there were certainly positive signs in the latter weeks of the campaign.

Swansea kicked off this season with a draw with Rotherham United away from home. They would have wanted all three points at the New York Stadium, but after going a goal down, the draw was a decent result. Harry Darling scored a cracker on his debut to earn his new side a point in South Yorkshire.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1238 GMT, Friday 5 August)

The Swansea.com Stadium is a tough place to visit these days, and Swansea will be eyeing up all three points from this one. City are the favourites with the bookies at 7/5.

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Can Rovers leave Wales with a positive result?

A lot changed at Blackburn Rovers over the summer, with long-serving manager Tony Mowbray opting to leave the club at the end of his contract. Jon Dahl Tomasson is the new man at the helm at Ewood Park.

Tomasson got off to a winning start last weekend, guiding the Blue and Whites to a narrow victory over Queens Park Rangers. Lewis Travis scored the only goal of the game at Ewood Park.

Swansea City vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Advice

The last game between these two sides was a tight tussle in Wales back in February. The hosts nicked it, with Michael Obafemi netting the only goal of the game. Blackburn edged the meeting at Ewood Park last August, as goals from Sam Gallagher and Ben Brereton Diaz gave Rovers a 2-1 win.

Blackburn have never won at the Swansea.com Stadium. Their last victory in Swansea came at the old Vetch Field way back in 1983.


Key Facts – Swansea City vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Tip

  • Swansea nicked a 1-0 victory when the pair met in Wales last term
  • Blackburn started the season last weekend with three points

Tomasson got off to the perfect start last Saturday, seeing his side edge past QPR at Ewood Park. However, this will no doubt be a far tougher task for Blackburn.

There is good value in 4/1 for City to win and both teams to score. Also, take a punt on the Swansea victory and over 2.5 goals at 3/1.
