Blackburn Rovers vs Liverpool Match Preview, Soccer Prediction, and Betting Tips
Blackburn beat Hibernians by two goals in their first preseason games and they were expected to record a similar victory when they faced Port Vale, however, the League Two side proved to be tougher opponents and the newly promoted Championship side would be looking to do better in this game against Liverpool.
Liverpool started their preseason with consecutive wins over Chester and Tranmere Rovers, the Reds scored 10 times and conceded 2 goals in those matches. However, their last preseason game against Bury was a tougher fixture and they were held to a goalless draw, after Tranmere had a goal ruled out for offside.
Liverpool are still without their dynamic trio of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah and it is understandable why they failed to create any clear-cut chances against Bury, however, Jurgen Klopp would be expecting a much better performance from his charges in this game ahead of the tour of America.
Blackburn have lost just one of their last 8 home friendly games since 2009. When the teams last met, Liverpool came out on top by a goal to nil. In recent times, Blackburn have struggled when they’ve come up against the Reds, as they’ve won none of the last four renewals, while they’ve managed to win just one of the last 12.
