Reason For Newcastle vs Blackburn Rovers Predictions

  • Blackburn have lost six of their last seven away games in all competitions.
  • Four of these six defeats have been to nil, with 2-0 defeats in two of them.
  • Blackburn haven’t beaten top flight opposition in the League Cup since 2011.

Magpies can build on fine start to the season

Newcastle’s summer dealings in the transfer market paid off instantly on Saturday night as debut goals from Callum Wilson and Jeff Hendrick earned them a deserved victory over West Ham, and spirits are high in the Magpies camp right now.

Blackburn’s morale isn’t quite so positive after their 3-2 defeat at Bournemouth, and a trip to top flight opposition could prove tricky as they begin their League Cup campaign.

The hosts ended last season on a six match winless streak, but they looked an entirely different outfit on Saturday and will be gunning for the win here. Blackburn haven’t beaten a top flight side in this competition since 2011, when they beat none other than Newcastle after extra time at Ewood Park.

We’re expecting things to go a little differently here. Rovers have lost six of their last seven competitive away games and face a rejuvenated looking home side, and we think it’s worth backing the hosts to progress in normal time here.

Four of Blackburn’s last six away defeats have seen them fail to score, with two of them ending 2-0. After Newcastle’s 2-0 curtain raiser on Saturday we’re backing history to repeat itself with our correct score prediction.
