Sheff Utd – Blackburn Match Prediction | 27-08-2019 14:45

In this game against Sheffield Utd, they will try to utilize some counter-attacking opportunities. They currently have all of their players ready to play in this fixture. 2 minimal victories against Hull and Middlesbrough proved that this team is capable of getting the results. After starting the season with two league defeats, they have managed to win three games in a row in all competitions. Sam Gallagher is someone they expect the most from, as he is usually their lone striker upfront.

Wednesdays football match at Ewood Park pits together Blackburn Rovers and Sheffield United, the two teams who have entirely different ambitions for the 2018/2019 Championship season. Blackburn Rovers have been scoring goals for fun in all competitions of late, but the game against Sheffield United will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Sheffield United aim to secure promotion to the Premier League, whilst the Riversiders main goal is to avoid relegation to League One. A man to watch in the away team will be David McGoldrick, who scored a brace in the 3-2 win over the Lions and we predict that he is going to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. The Blades proved their worth in back-to-back wins over the likes of Preston and Millwall and they must be brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Lancashire.

Sheffield United have won just one of their last five cup ties. Their only successful cup tie in their last five here was a 3-2 win over Walsall, while Blackburn have won three of their last four in this competition. They reached the third round last time and were backing them to avoid defeat within 90 minutes in this tie. Theyve managed to win only two of their last eight, while just one of their last five at home saw the Blades win.

After kicking off their revival in the Carabao Cup, Blackburn Rovers are aiming to keep it running. They are away to Bramall Lane this week, as they look for a second-round victory in the cup. While this ground hasnt been easy for top-flight sides to visit so far this term, we sense a potential shock in the Steel City this week. Rovers have managed to build on their victory in the first round and move away from danger in the Championship, but how will they measure up against Premier League opposition.

Sheff United Predicted Starting Line up

Good home result in this game for them is crucial. Both teams are looking to secure as good as a possible result, hoping to achieve their league goals this season as well as advance to the next round of the competition. Blackburn has eliminated Oldham in the previous round with two injury-time goals. Sheffield has enjoyed a good start at the Premier League getting a win and ad draw from the first 2 games. I expect Sheffield Utd to dominate this game possession-wise and to create a lot of scoring opportunities. This being a game between teams that are not coming from the same level of competition and that makes Sheffield Utd as favorites by default. Blackburn, on the other hand, were defeated twice and have won twice in their first 4 league games this season.

Blades have been regularly netting numbers of goals on the road and weve seen them find the net twice or more in three of their last three trips where they beat QPR, Bolton, and Millwall while only suffering a 1-0 loss at Bristol City along the way. We now expect another exciting occasion and both sides should prove motivated for an extra goal to turn it their way.

Its certainly something thats on the cards, with the hosts coming into this clash with an awful record in the League Cup. Blackburn have all the right tools to damage the Blades here. They play good football, so theyre able to take advantage of Wilders overlapping centre-halves. Theres also a chance for them to take on a weakened Sheffield United side, which offers the chance of an upset.

Expert Verdict: It's still very early in the season, but as things stand Sheffield United once again will be fighting for most of the season for the promotion places. It's been tough on them yo-yoing up and down the ladder, so a draw here in this match would not be the worst thing for either side. Blackburn, meanwhile, will just be happy to not be relegated in truth. That means any points they can grab away from home will be invaluable to them.
