Blackburn v Nottingham EFL Cup Prediction – Head to Head
Blackburn v Nottingham EFL Cup Prediction – Current Form

Blackburn v Nottingham EFL Cup Prediction – Preview
Blackburn Rovers F.C.
Blackburn Rovers reached the Round of 16 by scoring an upset victory over Premier League side West Ham, beating them on penalties 10-9 after a 2-2 draw at London Stadium last November. Jack Vale fired Rovers into the lead on just 7 minutes, but Pablo Fornais and Michail Antonio overturned the lead. However, Ben Brereton Diaz once again became the hero for the visitors, as he levelled with just two minutes in regulation. Unable to decide a winner in 120 minutes, it went down to penalties, with each taker converting. Angelo Ogbonna then hit the crossbar in sudden death, sending Blackburn to the next round. Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side have figured in four exhibition matches in the buildup to the match, winning all but one of them. They saw off Hearts 4-0 and Ajax 2-0, before bowing to Preston North End 1-4, and rebounding against Norwich City 2-0. Could they upset yet another EPL side in the competition?
Nottingham Forest F.C.
Nottingham Forest secured their Round of 16 slot with another upset, this time over Big Six side Tottenham Hotspur (2-0) at the City Ground last November. After a scoreless first half, Renan Lodi and Jesse Lingard netted within 7 minutes of each other to give the Reds the lead. The home side held on even as Orel Mangala was sent off in the 76th minute. Like Blackburn, Steve Cooper’s squad have also figured in four exhibition matches leading to the Carabao Cup tie. However, they incurred successive losses to Stoke City (1-2), Atromitos (2-3) and Olympiacos (0-1), before finally winning against Valencia (2-1). Can they barge into the next round of the EFL Cup against underdogs Rovers?

Blackburn v Nottingham EFL Cup Prediction – Final Thoughts
With Blackburn’s upset of top-flighters West Ham, Nottingham Forest will have to do more against them if they are serious in this competition. Unfortunately, their long injury list will give them less options against a healthier Rovers squad. Because of this, we think the Rovers can force another draw in this one, and give the Reds a fight down the stretch and even into penalties. Let’s take a look at our predictions.
