Blackburn vs Newcastle: Match Preview and Prediction

Blackburn vs Newcastle:Only once in 13 championship matches has Blackburn won. Newcastle won their last two FA Cup matches against Sunderland and Fulham with five goals. Blackburn has the second-worst Championship defense with 60 goals in 34 games.

On Tuesday night, Newcastle will look to move over their recent Premier League setbacks and make it to the FA Cup quarterfinals. In the competition’s fifth round, Blackburn and the Magpies meet at Ewood Park.

Eddie Howe’s team lost 1-4 against Arsenal on Saturday night, prolonging their Premier League deterioration. At Emirates Stadium, the Magpies’ opponents outperformed them ruthlessly. On this occasion, they persisted in their awful defensive performances. Newcastle’s four league games prior saw them concede twelve goals.

The Blackburn team has drawn their last three championship games. They tied Norwich 1-1 at home on Saturday. One win in 13 league games is the Riversiders’ problem. John Eustace’s team is 16th in the championship, four points below Stoke City in the danger zone.

Blackburn vs Newcastle: Betting Analysis

Four years have passed since these teams last played. Newcastle reached the League Cup third round with a 1-0 win at St. James’s Park. The 2018/19 FA Cup third-round rematch saw Newcastle advance with a 42-minute extra-time triumph on the road. In their six previous H2H matches, both sides scored twice.

Newcastle has played poorly defensively in recent months. However, their Premier League woes have not affected their FA Cup performances this year. The Magpies beat Sunderland and Fulham in the previous two rounds, scoring five unanswered goals to go to the fifth round.

Blackburn are four points above the Championship red zone. They had only one league win in 13 games. Newcastle should dominate Tuesday night from start to finish. The 2.20 odds favour the Magpies to lead at halftime and win the match.

Newcastle’s standout striker, Alexander Isak, started Saturday’s match in North London. The Swedish forward may miss the cup encounter three days later. Anthony Gordon has been Newcastle’s most reliable performer this season. He starts Tuesday as a left-winger or center forward. Gordon has eight Premier League goals this season. At 2.37, we’ll stake him to score anytime against the championship’s second-worst defense.

Who will win the match between Blackburn and Newcastle?

Although we anticipate that Blackburn Rovers will eventually break through this Newcastle United defense, a single goal probably won’t be sufficient. As a result, we expect both teams to score, giving Newcastle United the lead at the end of the game.
