Stoke City vs. Blackburn Rovers Trends Analysis

Stoke and Blackburn have clashed just six times in the last decade. Stoke City has won four of its last six matches against Blackburn, while Blackburn has claimed just one win and one match ended in a draw. Stoke has won all of its home games during this period.

Blackburn’s last trip to Stoke ended in a 1-0 defeat for the visiting team.

Stoke is struggling as the mid-season approaches, with four losses and one win to show for its last five matches. Stoke has won just three of its last ten Premiership matches.

Stoke has scored 6 goals in its last five games. The club’s defence has really struggled, letting in 14 goals over the same period.

Blackburn, meanwhile, is showing signs of recovery, with two draws, two losses and a single win on record for its last five games – performances that have seen it clear the bottom of the league table.

Some determined attack is making the difference for Blackburn, with 11 goals put away in five matches. However, defence will need to be a lot more disciplined to make the forwards’ efforts count, with 12 goals conceded during this run of fixtures.

Stoke City vs. Blackburn Rovers Betting Tips

Given the terrible defensive records of these two teams, picking a winner is tough.

However, you’d have to back Blackburn given their apparently superior strike capacity. While Blackburn’s own defence also looks tattered, the Stoke City attack doesn’t look capable of making the most of this.

Our Stoke City vs. Blackburn Rovers betting tip is therefore to go with a straight back bet on Blackburn, who look the stronger team coming into this match.
