Plymouth vs Blackburn: Top free betting tips

Blackburn Rovers go up against newly promoted Plymouth Argyle in the fifth round of the EFL Championship on Saturday, 2 September. The Rovers have got the back of a winning sequence while the Pilgrims will be fighting to break their losing streak.

Match result prediction: Blackburn to win

Plymouth Argyle has gone undefeated in the last four games in the EFL Championship and EFL Cup while losing three of them. On the other hand, Blackburn Rovers have registered three victories in their recent five matches while ending one in a draw. The Rovers are also undefeated in their recent five competitive fixtures away from Ewood Park, featuring three victories. Both teams have won twice their previous five H2Hs against each other. But following the given stats, we back Rovers to have the upper hand and take three points in this game.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Four of the recent five H2H meetings between these two sides have finished with both teams on the scoring side. Blackburn Rovers have found the back of the net in each of the starting four games of the EFL Championship. But the Riversiders’ defence secured just one clean in that course. Meanwhile, Plymouth scored in three games during the same course, conceding goals in three matches as well. Hence, we predict the teams to contribute to a BTTS outcome in this fixture.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Blackburn

Plymouth notched just one goal in two of the recent three league outings while remaining goalless in the other one. On the other hand, Blackburn Rovers have scored multiple goals in three of their last five EFL Championship fixtures away from Ewood Park. The Rovers will also be confident over the poor defensive form of the Pilgrims. Plymouth have conceded two or more goals in each of their recent three matches, leaking eight in total. Therefore, we imagine a 1-2 lead for Blackburn Rovers at the end of the ninety minutes of this game.

Plymouth vs Blackburn: Form, recent games, and news

Plymouth preview

The Pilgrims couldn’t hold their 2-0 advantage against Crystal Palace in the second round of the EFL Cup and tasted a 2-4 defeat at the end. Odsonne Edouard rattled the net for Palace in the 58th minute and Philippe Mateta smashed a hattrick to help his team a victory. Plymouth’s preparation for this game is slightly affected by an injury-related absence of Michael Cooper.

Blackburn Rovers travelled to Harrogate for the second round of the EFL Cup and thrashed them with a 0-8 victory. Rovers have registered two wins and a draw in the opening four games this season, tasting a defeat against Hull City.
