THE MATCH PREDICTION Blackburn - Newcastle 15.01 20:45

Asian handicap - Home (0)

Tuesday is the day of the rematches of the English Football Association Challenge Cup. Three pairs of teams will enter on the ground tonight. In one of them Blackburn Rovers will meet Newcastle United at their Ewood Park. Will the hosts not lose in the second leg?

Blackburn started their current cup campaign from the round of 64. Last year the Rovers have been eliminated by Hull at the same level as they are. The Tigers took a narrow 1:0 victory at away. Earlier the hosts passed through Barnet (3:1 at home) and Crewe (after two legs’ session). Their first game ended with a highly scoring draw 3:3, the rematch 1:0 on the road.

Usually the former English Premier League’s winner competes in the Championship. Here Tony Mowbray’s men possess the fourteenth place with thirty seven points after twenty-seven games. Their essential statistics look like this: nine wins, ten draws and eight losses. They have scored thirty-five goals and conceded forty-one goals.

This calendar year the home side played two games and won twice. The Rovers beat West Bromwich at home. Charlie Mulgrew and Bradley Dack have scored from the winners. Jay Rodriguez has scored from the losers. Last week they beat Milwall at away. Joe Nuttall and Adam Armstrong have scored in the 86-th and 87-th minutes, respectively.

Newcastle got underway from the round of 64 too. Last year the Magpies reached the round of 32 and hve been eliminated by Chelsea. The Blues have scored three times and did not concede. Earlier Rafa Benitez’s guys beat Luton 3:1 in the round of 64.

The guests are eighteenth in the English Premier League and risk to be relegated to the Championship. They earned eighteen points after twenty-two matches. They have four wins, six draws and twelve losses, their goal ratio is 16:31. This year the visitors added two defeats to their statistics. They have been beaten by mentioned above Chelsea 2:1 and Manchester United 2:0.

On January 05 the Rovers have scored the initial goal by Bradley Dack’s successful shot. The Magpies have equalized in the 84-th minute. Matt Ritchie has scored after the penalty kick.

These sides have opposite runs in their main tournaments. Blackburn demonstrated a strong performance at away. We expect they will not lose in the normal time in the rematch. We predict the home side’s win with an Asian handicap of 0 with a nice coefficient of 1.86
