Blackburn Rovers vs Newcastle United Match Preview
Blackburn got within six minutes of knocking Newcastle out of the FA Cup in the original game of this tie and may be left to rue missing that opportunity.
Rovers’ star man Bradley Dack gave the Championship club the lead on Tyneside even though they were second best over the 90 minutes, and Newcastle gained a reward for their superiority when Matt Ritchie equalised from the penalty spot.
So it’s on to Ewood Park to determine which of these teams will go forward to host Watford in the fourth round.
Although Blackburn will be feeling confident with home advantage this time, Newcastle have been a more effective side on their travels than on Tyneside so far this season.
Going into the weekend and their visit to Chelsea (result not known at the time of writing) only the top four clubs had lost fewer away Premier League games this term than the Magpies.
That owes much to the way manager Rafael Benitez sets up his team and defending is very much their strong suit.
With the chance to get our stake back with a bet on Newcastle purely to qualify if they do so in extra time or penalties, we will make our main wager on this match Benitez’s side to get the job done in 90 minutes by continuing their useful away form.
