Our football match prediction:
Blackburn Rovers needed a win against Wolverhampton at Molineux Stadium, but they eventually grabbed one point from Saturday’s football match. The Riversiders remained in the relegation zone in the Championship standings, but a win over Aston Villa could see them overtake Birmingham City in 21st position in the table. This has to go down as a must-win game for the relegation strugglers and we predict that they will give fans some cheer on Matchday 45. You should bear in mind that Blackburn Rovers are after their eighth home win of the season. Aston Villa are high on confidence following a hard-fought win over Birmingham City in the local derby and they will be looking to retain their spot in the top half of the table with a victory over Blackburn. However, the hosts want this win more and we believe that there is a big value in betting on Tony Mowbray’s men.
Highlighted Player (Jason Lowe):
Jason Lowe is a Blackburn Rovers midfielder, who was born on 2 September, 1991 in Wigan, Greater Manchester. Lowe plays as a defensive midfielder, but he is capable of playing as a central midfielder and a right back as well. The Blackburn footballer made his senior debut on 28 March 2011 during his loan spell with Oldham Athletic. He scored his first ever goal against Notts County six days later. Lowe returned to Blackburn Rovers at the end of the 2010/2011 season and he made his first appearance for the Rovers on 24 August 2011 in a victory over Sheffield Wednesday (League Cup). Speaking of his international career, Lowe made England U-19 training camp and he was selected for his national team for the European Under-19 Football Championship finals in July 2010 (Ukraine). However, he eventually withdrew from the squad through injury. On 10 October, 2011 Lowe made his England U-21 debut in a 2-1 victory over Norway U-21. The two teams faced each other in the Euro 2013 qualifiers.
Highlighted Team (Aston Villa):
Aston Villa are one of the three clubs that dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign. The Villans host their rivals at Villa Park, the stadium that was opened in 1897 and its’ capacity is 42,682. However, it has to be noted that the highest attendance recorded at the stadium was 76,588 when Aston Villa faced Derby County in the FA Cup back in 1946. Aston Villa’s fiercest rivals are Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion. Nonetheless, the rivalry between Aston Villa and Wolves and Coventry City is big as well. Aston Villa have won seven First Division (Premier League) trophies, with the team clinching seven FA Cup trophies as well. The team’s biggest success, though, came in 1982 when they won the European Cup. The Villans defeated Bayern Munich (1-0) in the title game and Peter Withe was named the man of the match.
