Blackburn vs Cardiff Match Preview
Blackburn made it back-to-back league victories and their third success in all competitions with a 1-0 victory at Hull. They have taken six points from their first four games starting with two defeats and then winning the latest two.
At Ewood Park, Rovers have seen just two of their last 12 league fixtures see both teams finding the back of the net. They have not scored a home goal from open play this season with their two strikes coming from the penalty spot and an own-goal.
Cardiff secured a second victory this season on Wednesday evening as they defeated managerless Huddersfield 2-1. It means that from their opening four fixtures they have taken six points with two victories and two defeats.
Away from the Cardiff City Stadium, the Bluebirds have struggled losing both times this season in the league and have just three road wins in 2019. They need to tighten up on their travels have conceded six times already this campaign.
It is hard to argue with the prices on offer here as Rovers are a decent home side and Cardiff are struggling on the road. Over 2.5 goals is the outsider of two and given this has happened in both road games for the Welsh side this season this seems the logical bet while over 3.5 goals also appeals as a value selection.
