Venue: Ewood Park, Blackburn

Blackburn Rovers v Liverpool: Team News

Ewood Park will play host to a very interesting friendly on Thursday afternoon when Blackburn Rovers and Liverpool are to test each other. It will be the last fixture on the UK soil before the trip to the United States for the Reds who are to feature the International Champions Cup later in the month.

Jurgen Klopp’s men started the preparations period quite early for the Premier League conditions. They’ve already bagged as many as ten goals in friendlies against Chester and Tranmere Rovers matches which saw both expensive acquisitions on the court. Naby Keita and Fabinho are expected to be in the starting line-up here against Blackburn as Liv’pool head into the game as pretty clear favourites to snatch another victory.

Blackburn Rovers v Liverpool: Head to Head Stats

The two sides will extend their rivalry playing each other for the landmark 111th time over the course of history.

Liverpool have been more successful so far, winning 48 and losing 27 H2H ties with the Riversiders.

Nevertheless, it’s been three years since these two outfits last played each other.

They were battling it out in the FA Cup back then as Liverpool clinched the 0-1 victory in the replay after the first leg at Anfield saw no goals.

The previous Premier League clash happened six years ago when the Riversiders last featured the top tier.

Blackburn Rovers v Liverpool: Prediction

Blackburn played the third division football last season, but they’ve managed to claw their way towards the immediate comeback to Championship. Tony Mowbray led the team to the runners-up finish in the previous term of League One, but can he make an impact in the second tier and get the team on a fair distance to the relegation scrap in the upcoming campaign?

The match with Liverpool should provide some answers as we can expect a super motivated Blackburn side on the day. The visitors still remain heavy favourites for the win, but the fans could be in for a high-scoring thriller knowing about Liv’pool’s defensive woes completely exploited by Tranmere’s attacking line nine days ago when the Reds snatched a 2-3 victory.

Liverpool to win & BTTS is the standout bet and it can be backed at the 7/4 odds. You can alternatively take the Over 3.5 goals at 4/5.
