Blackburn vs Brentford Predictions
Blackburn Rovers will host Brentford in the first game of the Championship’s Matchday No 36 on Friday evening. The match has a much greater importance for the visitors who are still chasing the top-two finish and an automatic promotion to the elite class football. The Bees have just missed out on the Premier League football last season and they could be looking at a similar scenario this time around.

Match Preview & Team News
Thomas Frank’s men dropped down to the 4th position in the league standings after the last weekend’s narrow loss at leaders Norwich City. They are now three points below the second-placed Watford and two points shy of Swansea City in third. The Bees have a game in hand on the Hornets, but the Swans have a game in hand on them, meaning they can ill afford any slip-ups in the remaining three rounds of the regular season if they are to keep the dream of the automatic promotion alive. Read on our Championship betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Blackburn Rovers have nothing to play for in the remaining three rounds. Tony Mowbray’s men are on a safe distance from the red zone but they can’t get involved in the promotional battle either. Moving forward, Mowbray will likely rotate his starting line-up here given that the Rovers have been in action on Tuesday evening when they played Swansea City on the home patch.
In general, Blackburn had been on a disastrous run of six defeats and one draw in seven Championship matches before beating Millwall 0-2 on the road last weekend. Brentford claimed 8 of their 13 league wins away from home this season. They desperately need the spoils to keep ground on Watford and Swansea City in the battle for the second-place finish.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
The Bees did not score a goal in two subsequent away matches in the competition. Since only one of the last five games Blackburn played in the league saw three or more goals scored, we will go for the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the 9/10 odds.
