Over 2.5 goals at Blackburn vs Fulham 19/20 for Wednesday’s Championship contest

Competition: Championship

Market: Over 2.5 goals

Odds: 19/20 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has been a stellar run of form, Fulham will make the trip to Ewood Park on Wednesday night when they face off against Blackburn.

Starting with the hosts, while Blackburn might not have been quite at their best over the weekend, Tony Mowbray’s men did pick up a welcomed 2-1 victory away at Derby. Although the Rovers might have endured a torrid three-week blip last month, the former Premier League ouftit have found a recent boost. Still opening the midweek fixtures sat just outside the play-off spots, the Lancashire-based side have now landed back-to-back Championship wins. Knowing that they should face a stern test at Ewood Park in midweek, Mowbray will be boosted by his side’s continued success on home soil. Including a thumping 5-1 romp against Championship strugglers Cardiff on September 25th, Blackburn are unbeaten in each of their last five home fixtures on the spin, a run that stems back to the end of August.

As for the visitors, while Fulham might have lost their Premier League status last season, they do appear to be leading the chase to clinch an immediate top-flight return. Laying down another marker over the weekend as they stormed their way to an eye-catching 3-0 win against West Brom on home soil, the west London outfit have won each of their last four matchups on the spin. With marco Silva’s side gaining a reputation for their free-scoring displays in the final third, it should also be noted that Fulham have won each of their last four outings by an aggregate score of 13-1. With that run highlighted by a 4-0 romp against Nottingham Forest on October 24th, the one-time Everton boss also has one attacking MVP enjoying a real purple patch. With Aleksandar Mitrović already racking up a staggering 18 goals so far, we’re backing a lively affair on Wednesday.
