Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Newcastle United will be looking to kick off their EFL Cup campaign in style when they take on Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday evening. The Magpies aim to build on the Premier League win over West Ham United, and they must be high on spirits ahead of the midweek clash. Newcastle United summer signing Callum Wilson has already started paying off as he opened his goal-scoring account in the Premier League opener.
Steve Bruce has some injury worries ahead of the Carabao Cup clash as all Dubravka, Dummett, Gayle, and Schar are sidelined with injury. The Riversiders, on the other hand, defeated Doncaster in the opening match of their EFL Cup campaign, but they failed to impress in the Championship opener against Bournemouth. Given Blackburn’s shaky defence, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. The likes of Dack and Gallagher are out of contention for the visitors.
