Blackburn vs Newcastle Predictions


Blackburn are on a lengthy winless run and Newcastle have been solid in the FA Cup this season. Neither side is convincing at the back and the Toon can get back to winning ways with an away victory and BTTS is tipped.

Head-to-Head


Newcastle have a 60-56 advantage against Blackburn in 146 meetings with 30 draws.

Blackburn Form


Before John Eustace’s appointment at Blackburn, the club had won just two of their previous 10 matches. Both victories came in the FA Cup against Cambridge (5-2) and Wrexham (4-1).

Eustace has overseen just one victory since joining Blackburn, an opening match win over Stoke (3-1). Rovers lost one and drawn three in their following four and held Norwich to a 1-1 home draw on Saturday.

Blackburn were 1-0 down after 22 minutes to Norwich and responded positively with 10 shots. Sam Gallagher hit the crossbar before Dominic Hyam netted a second-half leveller. 

Blackburn Injuries & Team News


Defender Hayden Carter and midfielders Joe Rankin-Costello and John Fleck are out.

Newcastle Form


Newcastle have won four of their last eight matches in all competitions. All four victories came on the road, including FA Cup triumphs over Sunderland (3-0) and Fulham (2-0).

The Toon were unbeaten in five, winning three and drawing two before a heavy 4-1 loss at title-chasing Arsenal. 

Eddie Howe’s side were completely outplayed at the Emirates with 0.22-2.59 expected goals. Newcastle trailed 4-0 and Joe Willock struck a consolation with seven minutes remaining. 

Newcastle Injuries & Team News


Midfielder Sandro Tonali is suspended.

Goalkeeper and midfielder Joelinton are unavailable due to injury.

Defenders Matt Targett and Elliot Anderson and striker Callum Wilson are also out. 

Verdict

Blackburn and Newcastle rarely keep clean sheets and goals can come in this FA Cup tie. The Magpies are likely to have too much class for Championship Blackburn and another Toon road win is anticipated.
