Newcastle vs Blackburn Prediction 15 September 2020

Tournament: English League Cup
Location: St. James’ Park
Match date: 15.09.2020 at 19:30

In the next mid-weekend, the match of the 1/32 finals of the English League Cup will take place, in which Newcastle will face off against Blackburn. We think the the hosts will have an advantage this time and yet we don't know if they will be able to fulfill it.

Thirteenth place at the end of the 2019/20 season - this is now the level of Newcastle, which in recent years has lost its status as a contender for European competitions. But after a month of preparation for a new campaign, the Magpies have already managed to get in good shape. A 2-0 away victory over West Ham in the first round of the Premier League is another confirmation of this. 

A decade ago, Blackburn were also a regular in the Premier League, but now they live in the middle of the Championship peloton at best. In the previous match the Tramps played with the main contender for the return to the elite Bournemouth, losing to him with a score of 2: 3. But in the League Cup they beat Doncaster 3: 2 in a spectacular style.

In my opinion, the more established Newcastle will happily take advantage of Blackburn's serious defensive problems and calmly qualify for the next stage of the competition.
