Sheff Utd – Blackburn Match Prediction | 20-08-2019

They seem to have that extra little bit of quality, which Blackburn lack, with the team missing a number of crucial first-team players. As both teams are in fantastic attacking form and are scoring goals for fun, backing Over 2.5 goals looks to be a certainty. To back a winner through correct score, we think Sheffield United could just edge this one. It should be a really exciting match between two teams who play some good football. Thus, a 2-1 correct score in favour of Sheffield United, to continue their promotion charge, seems appropriate.

With Charlie Mulgrew, Derrick Williams and Darragh Lenihan at the back, Blackburn have a strong foundation for the rest of the team to attack. Thus, Dack is not only scoring but setting up Blackburns potent attackers in the form of Danny Graham and Adam Armstrong. Their biggest strength is the balance throughout the team. Playmaker Bradley Dack is the lynchpin of this, as he carries on an incredible start to the season, with seven goals and five assists in his first eight matches in all competitions.

Two performances on Saturday were important from Sheffield United as the won from 2-1 behind at Millwall. For starters, Mark Duffy came up trumps with two assists in the match. He also has a threat in front of goal having scored twice this term, so he can bother a back line in multiple ways. The other player to have a big day was striker David McGoldrick. He scored twice in the final 11 minutes of normal time and was on the end of one of Duffy's assists to take his tally up to four in the Championship.

Blackburn vs Sheffield United Predictions and Match Preview

Blackburn's best player, and he has been for a while now, is Bradley Dack. The English attacking midfielder has five goals and two assists on the season and comes off a fine showing in the draw with Nottingham Forest on Saturday in which he scored and assisted before they were pegged back. Veteran striker Danny Graham also is still a presence to deal with up top and has added two goals as well as offering space for Dack to run into, making him a danger in a couple of ways.

In the game before that with Forest, Blackburn beat just-relegated Stoke 3-2 away from, going 3-0 up at the club who were considered the favourites for the title. Indeed, Blackburn have shocked a few teams this season already. Moreover, they have beaten other promotion contenders Brentford in a 1-0 home victory, whilst have drawn impressively with Aston Villa and Derby to establish themselves as being worthy of this division.

Theyve not won back-to-back games since early October when a victory in the reverse fixture at Ewood was followed up by a 1-0 win over Hull. Sheffield United will be hoping for a little more than that and their 3-1 win over Derby on Boxing Day was timely given theyve been struggling for consistency over the past couple of months.

Sheffield United are the clear favourites here with the bookies but there is reason to expect goalmouth action at both ends. The Blades have conceded in 75% of their home league games this term with 67% of their Championship outings at Bramall Lane seeing both teams score. Indeed the Steel City derby is the only one of their last 6 at home in the league where theyve managed to shut the opposition out.

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. Sheffield United aim to secure promotion to the Premier League, whilst the Riversiders main goal is to avoid relegation to League One. 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. 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. 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.
