Brentford vs Blackburn Rovers Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

t is honours even from the last seven meetings between this pair with three wins each and one game ending in a draw. The reverse fixture back in November was won by Blackburn who edged a five-goal thriller. Danny Graham got two for Rovers that day and a Harlee Dean own goal while Brentford saw Scott Hogan net twice. Brentford made it four games unbeaten as they drew 1-1 with Fulham in their last game. Nico Yennaris got the goal for the London side that day as they claimed a useful point against a side in the play-offs.

Blackburn got a vital three points in their last game as they saw off Aston Villa 1-0 at Ewood Park with a Danny Graham goal proving the difference between the two sides. Betting Tips and Predictions You could think about this game two ways, one Blackburn need to win and Brentford don’t therefore represent good value. The other is that the prices overstate how much they need to win and Brentford represent value. It is a tough thing to predict and so I would recommend looking elsewhere for your bets. I often say take the last 45 minutes to be the highest scoring half but in this case it might be better to play the first 45.

Going into the game Blackburn have to play with the mentality they need to win the game though this might change quickly at the interval due to events elsewhere. What if Forest are three down then simply not getting beaten by a large score becomes enough then this changes the mentality. In addition, try a little play on YES that both teams will score in the first-half.

Brentford Preview

Brentford are ending the season in good form going four games unbeaten and have lost just one of their last eight games. They currently sit in tenth place and could end the season as high as eighth or as low as 11th. At home, it is four straight victories for Brentford and just two defeat in their last nine. Their form at Griffin Park this season has been solid and they rank 11th in the divisional table for results in front of their own fans. The Bees have been an exciting team this season with the fourth largest amount of goals scored though they also have the eighth highest amount of goals conceded. Four of their last five have seen both teams find the back of the net and 13 of their last 17. Jota Peleteiro has four goals in their last two at home.

Ryan Woods (foot) is a doubt while Lewis MacLeod (cruciate) and Josh McEachran (unknown) are unlikely to feature here.

Blackburn Rovers Preview

Two wins and two draws has given Blackburn hope of survival at the bottom of the Championship. They are currently in 22nd but are on the same points as Forest and just one below them in goal difference with both two points behind Birmingham and one of these three will be relegated to League One. On the road, it is just one victory in their last ten for Rovers though five of these did end in a draw. Only Nottingham Forest and Rotherham have won a lower amount of away games this season than the three they have achieved. They rank just 18th in the goals scored records for the season and just 20th in the defensive category. They sit 13th in the over-under market with 23 of their 45 games registering exactly two or three goals scored. The last five Blackburn games have produced a total of just six goals.
