Blackburn Rovers vs Sunderland Predictions

Ewood Park Showdown: Blackburn and Sunderland’s Goal Fest

Key Stats
– Both teams to score has been a success in 5 out of 6 of Blackburn’s recent home games.
– Sunderland have blasted 8 goals in their last two matches.
= Blackburn and Sunderland are now within the Championship’s top eight, setting the stage for a thrilling contest.

Despite the noise surrounding potential cutbacks at Blackburn during the summer, Jon Dahl Tomasson’s leadership has shown resilience. The exit of Tomasson looked inevitable, yet he stayed on, and under his guidance, a young Blackburn side has amassed a commendable 10 points from six matches.

Though the journey wasn’t smooth – a slip against Hull City and a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Plymouth Argyle – they bounced back with a 2-1 win over Middlesbrough, thanks to Sammie Szmodics’ goals. Still, concerns arise with Blackburn’s goal tally, having scored only eight times this season, never exceeding two in a match. Regardless, the team’s unwavering faith in Tomasson suggests they are a side to be reckoned with.

Sunderland’s Rebirth

Beginning the season with two losses against Ipswich Town and Preston North End, many speculated Sunderland were suffering a setback from their missed 2022-23 playoff opportunity. However, looking back, those teams now sit in the top part of the table, proving the depth of the Championship.

Since those losses, Sunderland have been on a rampage, remaining unbeaten in four consecutive games. Tony Mowbray’s side showcased a balanced performance, highlighted by their triumphs against Rotherham United, Southampton, and Queens Park Rangers, and a stalemate against Coventry City. Their offensive prowess is evident, having netted eight goals in the last two matches, indicating they have a goal-hungry squad.

Championship Form: L-L-W-D-W-W Overall Form: L-L-W-D-W-W

Team Insights and Expected Goals

Blackburn, with 8 goals in 6 matches, averages 1.3 goals per match. However, they’ve conceded more than they’ve scored, at 9 goals. Their top performer, based on BettingTips4You Expert Rating, is Sammie Szmodics with a rating of 7.58.

Sunderland, impressively, have found the net 12 times in 6 games, averaging 2 goals per match, with a tighter defence, conceding only 6. Jack Clarke, with a brilliant 7.62 BettingTips4You Expert Rating, leads Sunderland’s charts.


1. Match Outcome

Given the goal stats, especially considering that Blackburn’s last six Championship home games had both teams scoring, and with Sunderland’s away games predominantly going over 2.5 goals, the prediction leans towards a high-scoring draw. Hence, the both teams to score market looks tempting.

2. Correct Score

Drawing on the goals scored by both teams and their recent form, a 2-2 draw seems plausible.

3. Goalscorer Prediction

Sammie Szmodics stands out with 4 goals for Blackburn, while Sunderland’s Jack Clarke has been pivotal with 3 goals. Both players, given their form and the attack-oriented nature of both teams, are likely to find the back of the net.
