Blackburn Rovers vs Bournemouth in the Championship on Apr 30. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Blackburn Rovers vs Bournemouth in the Championship on Apr 30. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

It’s a pivotal game for both of these sides as Blackburn look to make a late surge into the play-offs, and Bournemouth aim to hold on to the second automatic promotion spot.

There’s a flurry of sides who could still make it into the top six, and Blackburn are certainly one of the clubs in with a good shout. They sit in seventh place prior to this game - three points behind Sheffield United in sixth.

Bournemouth haven’t quite been at their best recently with just one win from their last six games but draws have kept them ticking over. In-form Nottingham Forest are on their tail, but as it stands, they have a three-point cushion over them.

Not much separates the two in the betting for this one, with Bournemouth edging favouritism. Championship betting odds have Blackburn at 2/1 (Coral) to pick up the win, with the away side available at 6/4 (Unibet) .

Bournemouth To Win To Nil

Blackburn may have beaten Preston 4-1 in their last outing, but generally, they are stuttering their way to the end of the campaign. It’s tricky to know what you might get from them at the moment.

The Cherries are unbeaten in their last five games, but they’ve only won one match in that stretch. That said, they’ve managed three clean sheets along the way and that sort of solidity will likely be the foundation of their performance here, given the position they’re currently in heading into the final stages of the campaign.

It’s unlikely Scott Parker will set up his side to be too conservative, but he’ll know his team don’t exactly have to throw caution to the wind to gain promotion to the Premier League.

Additionally, Bournemouth have kept three clean sheets in their last five games away from home, and one of them came in a 3-0 success at Huddersfield.

quotes
So, with Blackburn’s consistency issues, the Cherries’ superior organisation could see them grind out a win. Rovers have failed to score in three of their last five matches at Ewood Park too. So, with these things in mind, Bournemouth To Win to Nil at odds of 10/3 (Bettarget) is our betting pick for the game.

Blackburn Rovers Form, squad news, opinion

After going five games without a win, Blackburn took out their frustrations on Preston on Monday night.

It keeps their play-off hopes alive, but realistically they might have to win both of their remaining games to sneak into the top six.

They’ve had a few issues in front of goal at home recently, and against a generally solid Bournemouth defence they won’t find things much easier here.

Their win against Preston certainly came just at the right time given the poor stretch they’ve been on, but the big question is whether or not they’ll back that up with a performance of a similar level - as that’s been an issue for Rovers over the last several months.

Reda Khadra is the only player out for Blackburn currently.

Bournemouth Form, squad news, opinion

This is the Cherries’ last away game of the Championship season, before two huge matches at the Vitality Stadium.

After this assignment is Nottingham Forest - the team currently hunting them down for that second automatic promotion spot. So, Scott Parker will ideally want to be heading into that clash with at least a three-point gap.

His side's strong resolve was on show in their last outing, as Bournemouth rallied to salvage a point against Swansea.

Heading into the 72nd minute they were 3-0 down. But a brace from Kieffer Moore (including a goal in the 90th minute), and a penalty from Dominic Solanke, meant they gained a very vital point from an unlikely scenario.

The Cherries have several players currently on the injury list, including Morgan Rogers, Jordan Zemura, Leif Davis and Junior Stanislas.

History

This is just the 10th time these two have met. Bournemouth have five wins to their name in the head-to-head department, whereas Blackburn have three.

pointer right
The Cherries have won three of the last four meetings, but it was Blackburn who were the victors in their encounter earlier this season, winning 2-0.

About the Venue

Ewood Park has been the home of Blackburn Rovers since it opened way back in 1882. It has undergone several renovations since, and has a maximum capacity of 31,367. The ground is fairly compact, with stands close to the pitch, making for a lively atmosphere.

Conclusion

Bournemouth will be looking to tighten their grip on second place, and against a Blackburn side that has been in patchy form for some time now, they’ll probably feel confident they can do so.

quotes
The hosts did manage a morale-boosting win last Monday, but Bournemouth have a very solid base, so expect them to control the majority of the proceedings here.
