Blackburn vs Nottingham Forest: Top Two Tips

Championship side Blackburn face competition from the Premier League once again in the latest installment of the EFL Cup this week. Nottingham Forest are striving to survive in the Premier League right now but following 6-weeks without a competition match, a run out in the League Cup will suit the Forest players ahead of their Boxing-Day fixture.

Blackburn Double Chance

With Blackburn being a Championship side they have already played two competitive games since the mid-season break, while Nottingham Forest have played a competitive match since the 12th of November. Rovers also defeated Premier League opposition in the last round of the League Cup, beating West Ham on penalties, so you can see why we're backing Blackburn with a double chance bet.

Both Teams to Score

Four of the last seven meetings between these two clubs have ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard, and we're expecting more of the same in Wednesday's League Cup clash. The hosts have only failed to score in one of their last six competitive and non-competitive matches while both teams have scored in three of Nottingham Forest's last four outings, all of which were friendlies.

Blackburn looking to take out another Premier League side

Blackburn

Last time out, Blackburn secured an impressive 2-0 victory away at Norwich and have established themselves as genuine promotion candidates this season. An own goal from Gibson got Rovers on their way after just 4-minutes and a late effort from Dolan made sure of the points. Blackburn are in good form right now and having defeated West Ham at the London Stadium in the last round, Rovers will be confident about their chances of causing another upset on Wednesday.

Predicted Lineup: Kaminski (GK), Ayala, Hyam, Pickering, Dack, Rankin-Costello, Dolan, Morton, Gallagher, Buckley & Brereton

Nottingham Forest

Forest's last competitive game came against Crystal Palace back in early November where a solitary goal from Gibbs-White in the 54th-minute, handed the home side all 3pts. The Eagles almost took the lead in the first half when Zaha stepped up to take a penalty but the Ivory Coast international fluffed his lines. That win for Forest took them into 18th-position and while the League Cup could be seen as an unwanted distraction, the game against Blackburn could prove useful in their attempts to get back to match-fitness following the break for the World Cup.

Predicted Lineup: Henderson (GK), Aurier, Boly, Worrall, Lodi, Kouyaté, Freuler, Lingard, Gibbs-White, Yates & Johnson
