Expect Goals, Goals, Goals in Cardiff’s trip to Ewood!

Blackburm Rovers host Cardiff City at Ewood Park tonight in what will be the first league clash between the 2 sides since 1984/85 season, when Rovers did the double.

The Welsh side come into the game sitting comfortably at the top of the table, having won all 10 of their home games, but have some concerns with their away from, giving Rovers some hope of picking up a much needed home win.

Whilst their home form has been exceptional, Cardiff (13/8, Bet365) have lost 5 of their games on their travels, conceding 20 goals in the process (only Burnley and Ipswich have conceded more away from home).

That said they have no concerns scoring goals and have netted at least once in their last 18 league outings.

Blackburn, by contrast, have hardly been in blistering form in front of their home fans, with Henning Berg managing just 1 win in his first 6 games in charge (Steve Kean won 4 of his first 6 in the Championship).

One positive for the Blackburn boss has been the form of Jordan Rhodes.

The Scot has been bang in-form of late, racking up 11 league goals already and he is 5/4 to score tonight and 9/2 to net first (Victor Chandler)

Rovers are 13/8 (SkyBet) to snatch all three points tonight but it will the teams look pretty evenly matched an a result will be hard to call.

Instead we’ll be looking at the goals markets with Both Teams To Score looking like a decent price (8/13Bet365), with a small play on Blackburn to nick it 2-1 at 9/1 (Coral).

  • Both Teams To Score – 8/13 (Bet365)
  • Blackburn 2-1 – 9/1 (Coral)

Got something to say?
