During the last 14 rounds, Swansea City lost two times and tied as many games. It is worth noting the successful matches against the teams from the top three of the Championship standings. The Swans beat Watford (2:1) and Norwich (2:0) and shared the points with Brentford (2:2). In the current tournament, Swansea gained 19 victories and suffered six defeats. And only Norwich has better figures (23 and 5).
Having gained 65 points, Swansea takes 3rd place in the standings and really claims to be promoted. The Swans are in the playoff zone, and 2nd place that guarantees direct promotion to the Premier League is at a distance of one point. The Rovers are in 15th position and lag 22 points behind their upcoming opponents. Over the last 11 matches, Swansea has not left the field without a goal scored. Their top scorer Andre Ayew (13 goals) scored once in recent matches against Bristol and Stoke City and made the winning double against Middlesbrough. Blackburn's sniper Adam Armstrong (19 goals) couldn’t hit the opponents' nets in the last five matches in a row. The head-to-head meeting of opponents in the 9th round of the current Championship ended with the victory of the Swans (2:0). It will be difficult to keep a clean sheet in the upcoming match. But one of the most reliable (24 conceded goals) defenses in the current Championship will help to minimize the danger in the penalty area. The Rovers will try to "wake up" Armstrong, but they are not yet able to defeat the team from the top four.
Prediction for the match: Swansea to win with 0.0 handicap
