Blackburn Rovers vs Millwall: prediction for the EFL Championship Week 36

A battle for a chance to stay out of the relegation zone!

In a must watch clash of the EFL Championship Week 36, Millwall will visit Ewood Park to face off against the local Blackburn Rovers. Match will begin at 8:45pm CET on Tuesday, March 5.

Blackburn Rovers

The 1995 Premier League champions, Blackburn Rovers have been stuck in the EFL Championship since 2012, when they got relegated from the top flight.

Teams of such stature usually get back in a while, but Rovers have not even made the playoffs, let alone finish in the top-2. After a bunch of solid seasons, this one, however, is not going as well, as Blackburn is only one point up on the relegation zone, with a key game coming up.

Millwall

Similar to Blackburn Rovers, Millwall might cherish the memories of playing in the top flight, but this season is only about keeping its spot in the EFL Championship.

A much needed two game winning streak, including a victory at St.Mary’s in Southampton, pushed the Lions a point about the cut line. Same as their Tuesday’ opponents, Millwall can push themselves out of danger this week, as both face only their neighbors in the standings.

Prediction ⚽️

Blackburn Rovers won in The Den in the first round, despite Millwall scoring an early goal, as the visit northwest looms large for the Lions.

The feisty Blackburn attack and a porous defense against a subpar attack and an average Millwall defense - a classic game, where strengths and weaknesses align. Considering the relatively cold temperatures at Ewood Park on Tuesday evening, we will side with the hosts sweeping the season series and winning with 2.25 odds 🔥.
