Blackburn vs Manchester United Prediction 19 February 2017

Tournament: FA Cup
Location: Ewood Park Stadium
Match date: 19.02.2017 at 16:15

On February 19 2017 at 14:15 in the regular game of the English FA Cup round of 16 at the Ewood Park Stadium the local Blackburn Rovers meet Manchester United.

Blackburn got seven victories, eight draws and sixteen losses in the current season which let them gain 29 points with 36:49 goal difference in the Football League championship. These results are definitely not enough for the team to stay in the league. Moreover, Blackburn look really poor in the home matches where they only gained 20 points in 16 matches played. As for the Cup campaign of the team, they outplayed QPR 2:1 and Blackpool 2:0 on their way to the current stage.

Event though Manchester United haven’t lost a single game during the latest six months, they are still on the sixth position in the standings of the English Premier League. Anyway, the victory in the latest game against Watford 2:0 let Manchester Untied gain 48 points and shorten their distance to the second place in the table which is now only 4 points big. We must also admit that Manchester Untied easily won against Saint-Etienne in the Europa League.

Of course, Manchester Untied are the obvious favorites of the upcoming game. We must remind you that last time the teams met was in 2012 and Manchester Untied won that away game 0:2. Blackburn have a lot of problems in the national championship and that’s why they may need to concentrate on it to solve them or at least to try. As for Manchester Untied, they have to go to France after their game on Sunday and that’s why we may see a lot of new players on the pitch compared to the squad we saw in the Europa League match. Anyway, we think that Manchester Untied will still win in the upcoming game and make it to the next stage of the competition.
