Blackburn Rovers takes Liverpool at the stadium" Ewood Park" in a replay match of the quarterfinals of the Cup of Football Association. Before a month ago, the two teams failed to score at "Anfield". The game is on Wednesday - April 8, 2015 and the odds offered by the leading bookmaker bet365 are as follows: 5.75 for a home win, with a draw at 4.00 and 1.67 for the victory of the guests.
Blackburn won with the classic 3:0 in his visit to Leeds in the last round of the Championship. Despite this success, "the Riversiders" have no chance of ranking in the Premier League. In a view of this, the upcoming game looks like the most important for Rovers.
The manager Gary Bowyer will not be able to rely on Jay Spearing since he is part of Blackburn on rent from Liverpool. Because of injury the match misses Jason Lowe. With problems in the camp of Blackburn are five players - Grant Hanley, Craig Conway, Rudy Gestede, Joshua King and David Dunn. Late fitness test will decide whether of some of them will be available to Gary Bowyer.
Liverpool almost lost his participation in the Champions League this autumn after losing in his visit to Arsenal with 4:1 and now is seven points behind the top 4. Liverpool still hopes to win only the FA Cup, but those hopes go through success at "Ewood Park".
For the visit to Blackburn, Brendan Rodgers has serious problems with the composition. Martin Skrtel, Steven Gerrard and Emre Can are suspended. Jordan Ibe doesn`t have the right to participate in the tournament, while Adam Lallana and Mario Balotelli are questionable, because of injuries. Dejan Lovren will get a starting place and will partner in central defense with Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho. Daniel Sturridge returned again to the starting lineup of Liverpool despite his poor form lately.
Before a month ago, the two teams finished the previous match without scoring a goal, but now have to get a winner. We believe that the class of Liverpool is much bigger and is against the wall, which will motivate the team to take the victory of "Ewood Park".
Recommended bet: For Liverpool @ 1.67 at bet365
