Blackburn Rovers vs Nottingham Forest betting tips: Carabao Cup Fourth Round preview, predictions and odds


Match preview

Will 2002 League Cup winners Blackburn Rovers or four-times winners Nottingham Forest reach the quarter-finals?

Forest are back in the Premier League for the first time since 1999, but currently find themselves in the relegation zone.

Although, before the World Cup break, Steve Cooper’s team did at least climb off the bottom, beating Crystal Palace 1-0.

Three days earlier, the Reds also knocked Tottenham out of this competition, with Renan Lodi and Jesse Lingard bagging quick-fire goals.

Now after 39 days without a game, will Nottingham Forest pick up where they left off?

Blackburn Rovers meanwhile were relegated from the Premier League in 2012, but look well-placed to end that exile.

Jon Dahl Tomasson’s team beat Norwich 2-0 at Carrow Road on Saturday, a win that leaves them third, eight points below the leaders.

In this competition, Rovers have already overcome Hartlepool, Bradford City and then West Ham on penalties.

After a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium, the Riversiders prevailed 10-9 in the shootout, converting all of their spot-kicks.

So now, Blackburn are on the cusp of the quarter-finals for the first time in 11 seasons.

Will the Championship high-fliers cause a mini-upset against the Premier League strugglers at Ewood Park?
