Fulham vs Blackburn Rovers predictions and betting tips for the Championship fixture on Saturday 10th August at Ewood Park. Both sides suffered shock defeats last weekend and will be looking to bounce back in this one.
After spending big last summer and not surviving in the Premier League, Fulham have had to rebuild again during this summer as they prepared for life back in the Championship. Holding on to some key players such as Mitrovic has put them in a good position to bounce straight back into the top flight but defeat against newly-promoted Barnsley last weekend would have been a big disappointment so early on in the campaign.
Blackburn have been building slowly under Tony Mowbray and they are expected to have a tilt at the top six this season. Things didn’t start well for them last weekend though, losing at home to another newly-promoted side, Charlton Athletic. They have managed to keep hold of star man Bradley Dack and he will be a key feature to their campaign this season.
The Cottagers will be desperate to get off to a good start this season but defeat last weekend will have left a sour taste. They now face a tough home match against Blackburn Rovers and our prediction here is for the game to end all square. Both Mitrovic and Dack will be the key man on display and a bet on Bradley Dack to score anytime might be a good pick at odds of 3/1 with Betfair. When you consider he’s as short as 12/5 with one firm and Mitrovic is only Evens.
The correct score tip for the game is a 1-1 draw which will leave both sides on just one point after two games. Things will need to pick up if these two teams are to challenge for the top six come the end of the season.
Fulham to win – 8/11
Draw – 14/5
Blackburn to win – 7/2
Both teams to score – 13/20
