Our prediction for this Championship match:
After failing to impress in the Premier League last term, Bournemouth will be looking to kick off the new Championship campaign in style when they take on Blackburn Rovers at Vitality Stadium. The Cherries are eyeing a quick return to the English top flight, but they will have to do it without Nathan Ake and Callum Wilson, who left the club in the summer transfer window.
Blackburn Rovers, on the other hand, did well to beat Doncaster in their EFL Cup opener, with the team sharing the spoils with Leicester City in a warm-up match. The RIversiders are high on confidence ahead of the trip to Bournemouth, and seeing that there will be no spectators at Vitality Stadium, we are tempted to put our money on draw. In their last meeting in the Championship the two teams shared the spoils (0-0).
