Match preview and best betting tip:

Playing in their territory, Blackburn Rovers should take all the reins of the game and take advantage of some defensive failures of the opponent to reach the goals. On the other hand, Birmingham City should try to score at least one point in a difficult field, that is, they should take the opportunity to counterattack, a transition that will bring great danger to the rival. That said, and taking these factors into account, betting on goals in this game is a good option.
