Reason For Cardiff vs Blackburn Rovers Predictions

  • Cardiff have lost only two of their 20 home league games this season, winning nine times
  • Blackburn have lost four of their last five league games, suffering defeat in three consecutive away games without scoring
  • Cardiff are unbeaten in seven league meetings between the pair, winning back-to-back games at home

Cardiff can continue their playoff surge

Cardiff occupy the final Championship playoff place and they can keep their promotion hopes alive with a comfortable victory at home to Blackburn.

The Bluebirds are finishing the season strongly and a 1-0 win at Bristol City on Saturday extended their league unbeaten run to six games.

Cardiff have lost only two of their last 15 league matches and the 2-0 home victory over Leeds last month highlighted what they are capable of on a going day, particularly on their own patch.

Neil Harris’s side have lost only two of their 20 home league games this season and there are few concerns about their well-being with four clean sheets in their last five outings.

Cardiff are unbeaten in seven league meetings with Blackburn, winning back-to-back games at home, and we are predicting them to maintain their dominance here against an injury-hit Rovers.

Depleted Blackburn are worth taking on

Blackburn suffered their fourth defeat in their last five games at the hands of Leeds on Saturday (3-1) and injuries to key players could see the misery extended at Cardiff.

Tony Mowbray was already missing talisman Bradley Dack but the injuries to Lewis Travis and Corry Evans have weakened their midfield even more considerably.

It is therefore no surprise to see Blackburn faltering as the season comes to a close and three consecutive away defeats to nil at Derby, Wigan and Barnsley must be of some concern as they travel to face one of the Championship’s form sides.

With only six wins in 20 Championship away league games, Blackburn can be opposed on their travels – particularly while the classy Dack remains a long-term absentee.

Blackburn weren’t disgraced in their 3-1 defeat at home to Leeds but losses at relegation-threatened pair Barnsley and Wigan, where they failed to score in, are concerning and Cardiff have the resources to capitalise.

Bluebirds can keep Blackburn at bay

Cardiff are flying and we are predicting Harris’s in-form men to keep a fifth clean sheet in six league games at home to Blackburn.

The Bluebirds have shut out Leeds, Charlton and Bristol City since football’s return and they could also keep a Blackburn side who have failed to score in four of their last seven league games at bay.

Blackburn have lost their last two away games 2-0 at Barnsley and Wigan and our prediction is a repeat scoreline at the Cardiff City Stadium. The Bluebirds have scored exactly twice in four of their last seven league games on home soil.
