Tip Reasoning

  • Swansea failed to score in each of their last three games.
  • Blackburn’s away league games averaged a mere 1.9 total goals per-game.
  • Each of Blackburn’s last six away league games produced under 2.5 total goals.
  • Each of Swansea’s last five matches produced two or fewer goals.

A period of transition for Swansea

While they are relatively safe in the division, Swansea’s forlorn interest in the play-off positions weakens by the week. Manager Russell Martin said that this year was always going to be about development, they would like to do that by ending their current 309-minute scoreless run as soon as possible

The Liberty Stadium has averaged just 2.2 total goals per-match this Championship season, with over half of the games here producing under 2.5 in total. The same can be said of their last two home meetings with Blackburn, so we could be in for a low-scoring affair as the Swans seek some consistency.

In form Blackburn are wobbling

While Blackburn picked up a league-high 23 points across the last ten games (W7, D2, L1), they ran out winners in just one of their last three Championship outings, a run which will have some pessimistic supporters doubting their automatic promotion credentials.

The visitors are buoyed by the return of Stoke-born Chilean sensation Ben Brereton Diaz, who comes into the side fresh from scoring against Argentina during his international excursions.

Even so, there have been just four total goals scored across Blackburn’s last five league games, a run which hardly inspires the neutral to tune in. As such, I predict a low-scoring affair here, though Diaz and co will likely see that promotion-chasing Blackburn can eke out a narrow win.
