Tottenham v Blackburn
The Tottenham and Blackburn game kicks off on Sunday, April 29 at 16:00 GMT. The game takes place at White Hart Lane.
Currently experiencing a dip with back-to-back losses in the Premier League, Tottenham’s inadequacy to squeeze out a result in their last games might have just cost them a top four finish this season. A draw against Sunderland and losses against Norwich and QPR – teams that are arguably below the Spurs’ calibre – means that they only have a solitary point to show in the last month. Surely this is not the kind of finish that Harry Redknapp wanted.
Statistically speaking, Tottenham’s fall all boils down to a lack of proficiency in front of goal. The team has only scored 5 goals in the last 6 games, all of which are scored at home. They will be lucky to play their next tie at White Hart Lane in that case, but the team has two away fixtures after Blackburn and they better sort their attacking woes out before a top four finish finally becomes an impossibility.
The Rovers are currently on the verge of relegation at 19th place. Amusingly, they are also ranked 19th in terms of recent form, having lost 5 of their last 6 games. With 31 points and three games to play, the team can still hope for better days ahead. But they need to play Tottenham first, and then Wigan before ending the season at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea. Blackburn’s schedule is once again playing against themselves, and it remains to be seen whether they can manufacture a miracle in the coming weeks.
Defensive stability has been the primary concern of Steve Kean. In the last six games his team has conceded 13 goals; in the 5 losses they have suffered in those six games, the opposition has scored no less than 2 goals. Admirably, Blackburn kept clean sheets in their last three wins, the most recent of which was against Norwich last week (the other two wins were back in March). For Blackburn, a clean sheet most likely leads to a win – but this is easier said than done and Kean will need to work out a way to keep out the likes of Emanuel Adebayor and Gareth Bale at bay come the weekend.
Tottenham v Blackburn Betting Preview
Facing Blackburn this weekend could finally be the moment that puts Tottenham back to winning ways. In their last five meetings, the Spurs has not conceded a single game. Blackburn will also be facing a team performing very well at home this year. Then again, the timing could be perfect for the Rovers: two weeks back Tottenham was humiliated by Norwich in front of their home crowd. This could be their chance to pounce on a wounded team.
Verdict: Spurs to win, 2-0.
Tip: Blackburn is one of the worst-performing teams on the road mainly because they don’t score consistently when playing away. Combine this with Tottenham’s recent lackluster scoring and you’d fancy the game to end with fewer than 2.5 goals (odds are at 8/5 via Bet365).
A Tottenham win is not that rewarding (odds at 4/11) but a winning score-line of 1-0 and 2-0 are tipped at 8/1 and 7/1 respectively. This combines well with an “under 2.5 goals” punt.
