FA Cup: Blackburn vs Manchester United

Blackburn vs Manchester United Betting Tip and Predictions. In the 1/8 finals of FA Cup, Blackburn host Manchester United at Ewood Park. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Blackburn vs Manchester United.

Blackburn play in the Championship and they are currently standing in the relegation zone, so their primary goal this season is to stay in the second football league in England. It doesn’t mean that they are not interested in FA Cup. Actually, they will be fully motivated to make good result against Manchester United, but they know that visitors are much stronger and it will be very hard for them to eliminate them. Home side play solid this season upfront their supporters, but even if they lose it won’t be a sensation. For few days Blackburn will play against Burton and that match is very important for them in their relegation fight.

Manchester United don’t shine in Premier League this season and the title race for them is over. Despite that fact, they are still in a race to win Europa league and FA Cup, so they will be fully motivated to beat Blackburn and go through. Few days ago, team from Manchester smashed St Ettiene 3-0 in Europa League and made one step forward to reach the next phase of that competition. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has exploded on that game and made his first hat-trick, so he will be fully motivated to continue with good performance against team from the Championship. Their manager will possible make some changes in team, but despite that fact they are big favorites to go through and I expect their easy win.

Team News

Home side miss Gallagher, Evans and Greer, while Holban is doubtful. On the other side, visitors will be without Pereira and Carrick, while Rooney and Jones are both doubtful. Pogba will be rested for this game.
