Blackburn Rovers v Cardiff City Match Preview & Best Odds


Cardiff City and Blackburn Rovers ease themselves away from Championship duties when they face each other at Ewood Park in the third round of the League Cup this evening.

While Blackburn Rovers sit in the lower half of the Championship table after eight rounds of league fixtures, life has hardly been dull for their supporters. Three of their matches have featured seven or more goals with two of these coming in the League Cup, a 4-3 victory over Walsall being followed by an 8-0 demolition of League Two side Harrogate Town away from home.

Rovers came off second best by a single goal margin in a seven-goal thriller against high-flying Ipswich Town in their last Championship outing at the weekend and they have leaked eleven goals in 360 minutes of play, a far from ideal record when coming up against a side which has been showing noticeable signs of improvement in recent weeks.

Cardiff City have triumphed in all-but-one of their last six outings across competitions, their sole defeat during this time being a 3-2 loss away to league leaders Ipswich Town early this month after going two goals ahead. Since then the Bluebirds have beaten Swansea City, Coventry City and Sunderland and they currently sit in seventh position in the Championship table after eight rounds of fixtures.

There will be changes aplenty for both sides as each manager attaches more in the way of importance to the league campaign, therefore it’s difficult to predict the outcome of tonight’s encounter with any degree of certainty. Nevertheless, Cardiff are playing with more belief right now and for that reason alone, we’ll be siding with them to prevail this evening and send themselves through to the next round of this season’s League Cup.
