Draw

While we're expecting a competitive and entertaining match on Saturday, we're predicting that the pair will play out a draw. Four of the last five league meetings between Blackburn and Swansea have ended in stalemates, including their last encounter back in March. Three of Blackburn's last six matches have also ended in draws and the hosts haven't lost any of their last five home games against their Welsh guests.

BTTS

We're predicting that there will be goals in this game for both clubs and five of their last six head-to-heads have ended with both teams scoring. Four of Blackburn's last six outings have also ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard as have each of Swansea's last three fixtures, so you can see why we're expecting goals in this game.

1-1 Draw

As far as a final scoreline is concerned, we've gone with a 1-1 draw this weekend. Everything points towards a draw being the most likely result and the recent history between the two clubs, as well as their recent performances, suggest that 1-1 is a very likely outcome. The pair's last encounter ended 1-1 and each of their last three matches at Ewood Park have ended in score draws.

Blackburn looking to maintain unbeaten home run against Swansea

While Blackburn haven't lost any of their last five home games against Swansea, they also haven't managed to beat the Welsh side in any of their last seven games against them in the Championship. Last season, Swansea won 2-0 at home and earned a 1-1 draw at Ewood Park, so the Welsh side certainly had the edge over their hosts from the North West. In terms of injuries, Rankin-Costello, Dack and Wharton all look set to miss this weekend's clash and of the three, only Rankin-Costello is expected back this month.

Swansea sport their new crest for the 2021/22 season in honour of the 40th anniversary of their first-ever promotion to the top-flight. Saturday's guests picked up two wins and one defeat during pre-season, finishing with a 3-1 defeat at home to Premier League side Southampton. Full-back Connor Roberts and Tivonge Rushesha are expected to miss the opening weekend of the new season through injury but the latter could return later this month.
