Blackburn Rovers meets Middlesbrough on Ewood Park, in English Championship, a match predicted to be interesting to watch.
Blackburn has an outstanding attack, but their problems are in defensive and this is also the main reason for the relegation. They have scored last season 48 goals, more than Swansea, Aston Villa, Liverpool or West Brom and Sunderland, but they have conceded 78 goals which classed them as 2nd worst defensive in the Premier League after Wolves.
This season they improved attack line by bringing the Scottish starlet Jordan Rhodes from Huddersfield, scorer of 74 goals in League One in 3 seasons, 37 last season and already scorer of 3 goals in 3 matches for Blackburn.
Blackburn brought Nuno Gomez, Kazim Richards, Best, Danny Murphy, Etuhu, Sandomierski and Diogo Rosado in their team, making from Blackburn one of the favorites to win League One.
Middlesbrough has a solid team and a good coach – Tony Mowbray – but their results are weaker than last season. All comes from their poor defensive play – they already conceded this season 11 goals in 6 games, and scored 9. Same attitude has been observed also in their pre-season friendlies when they scored and conceded in every match.
This season Blackburn won 3 out of 3 home games while Middlesbrough has lost 3 out of the 3 away games.
Defender Givet returns in the first 11 for Blackburn, same goes for Nuno Gomes in attack after last match in which he had a great performance, while Kazim Richards is out due to his injury.
Nothing changed for Middlesbrough’s first eleven, with same list of long term injuries including striker Main and defender Williams.
So today I’m not gonna risk too much and I’ll place a special bet from IBCBET offer. I’m going with a 10 units stake on Middlesbrough – Over 0.5 goals @ 2.33 odds.
