Leicester v Blackburn FA Cup Prediction – Preview
Leicester City F.C.
Leicester City are looking to win their second FA Cup in three years. They successfully progressed to the FA Cup 5th round by seeing off Walsall 1-0 at the Bescot Stadium in January. The Foxes dominated their matchup, despite just one goal scored by substitute Kelechi Iheanacho when he struck home a deflected strike in the 2nd half. Manager Brendan Rodgers lauded the victory, saying that his side was exceptional in the second half. He also gave credit to Walsall’s performance, and praised boss Michael Flynn for giving them a tough fight. They now face Blackburn in the competition, who has slowly made a run in the Championship. Will they also prevail?
Blackburn Rovers F.C.
Blackburn Rovers are looking to lift the FA Cup for the 7th time in history, and their first since 1928. They secured their slot in the 5th round after a hard-fought tie with fellow Championship side Birmingham City. The original match at Ewood Park ended in a thrilling 2-2 finish, thus requiring a replay at St. Andrew’s. However, both sides remained deadlocked until the end of regulation. The breakthorugh finally came when Tyrhys Dolan and Sammie Szmodics combined on the left side, with Birmingham’s Auston Trusty deflecting into his own under threat by Sam Gallagher. Blackburn manager Jon Dahl Tomasson hailed his side’s efforts as he led them to the FA Cup’s last 16 for the first time in six years. Now that they face their toughest challenge yet with top-flight side Leicester, could Rovers continue their glorious run in the competition?
