This Tuesday sees Blackburn Rovers visit the Liberty Stadium to face Swansea City in the Football League Championship.
Blackburn have made a good start to their return to the Championship and currently sit in 7th place just outside the play off places on goal difference.
They will head to South Wales full of confidence, not just with the start they have made to the season, but also on the back of their 2-1 victory over high-flying Leeds United on the weekend.
Defeat at Villa Park over the weekend saw Swansea slip to 15th in the table. As I’ve mentioned in my tips over the last few weeks, Swansea do play some excellent stuff at times and are quite tight at the back, boasting the second best defensive record in the division.
However, it is their lack of firepower that has seen them struggle so far this season, as the Swans have failed to score in 7 of their 13 Championship games thus far and netted only 12 goals overall.

Swansea City v Blackburn Rovers Match Predictions
As I said in my Villa v Swans tips at the weekend, Bersant Celina is looking good value for a Swansea goalscorer option, and I would recommend sticking with him for tonight’s game.
Bersant was unlucky with a couple of opportunities at Villa Park and statistically he is having the most shots per game this season of all of Swansea’s players, including leading scorer Oli McBurnie.
Celina is available at 19/2 (10.50) to score the first goal with BetVictor in the game against Blackburn and is 4/1 with BetWay to score any time.
Again, I do feel the game will be a tight one and odds of 21/20 with BetVictor on one or both teams not to score seem very appealing.
Six of Swansea’s last seven games has seen at least one of the teams fail to score, whilst the same applies to three of Blackburn’s last six games.
Bersant Celina – First Goalscorer: 19/2 (10.50) with BetVictor.
Bersant Celina – To score any time: 4/1(5.00) with BetWay.
Both teams to score – No: 21/20 (2.05) with BetVictor.
