Under 2.5 goals at Blackburn vs Stoke City 8/11 for Saturday’s Championship battle

Posted January 15th, 2021 | By: Tom Dunstan

Competition: Championship

Market: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport

In a contest that could see chances come at a real premium on Saturday afternoon, Blackburn will host Stoke from behind closed doors this weekend.

Starting with the hosts, crashing out of the FA Cup last weekend, Blackburn are a side that are desperately seeking some stability. In their 23 Championship matchups so far this season, they have recorded nine wins, five draws and nine defeats, scoring 38 and conceding 27 in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of 32, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat 11th in the table and now five points adrift of finding a route back into the play-off positions. As for their recent run of results, last seen crashing out of the FA Cup against League One outfit Doncaster on home soil, Blackburn have managed to win just a pair of their last nine matchups across all formats. It is also worth noting that four of the Rovers’ last five matchups have seen under 2.5 goals by the final whistle.

As for the visitors, while Stoke might also have their own play-off charge on their agenda, they too have continued on what has been a worrying run of form. In their 23 Championship matchups so far this season, they have recorded nine wins, eight draws and six defeats, scoring 26 and conceding 22 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 35, the Potters open this weekend’s fixtures sat eigth in the table and just two points adrift of break back into the play-off spots. However, as for their recent run of results, also crashing out of the FA Cup last weekend, Stoke have suffered back-to-back defeats across all formats. More worrying for Saturday’s guests, they have failed to win any of their last five straight matchups. Also landing just a single goal in their last four contests, we’re backing another low-scoring matchup on Saturday afternoon.
