After dismantling West Ham 2-0 in east London over the weekend, Newcastle hope for better luck in this season's EFL Cup. They host Championship side Blackburn on Tuesday evening, who similarly lost at this stage of last year's competition and want a response after losing late to Bournemouth on Saturday.

How will Steve Bruce's side fare against a Rovers side they met twice in 2019 (won one, drawn one), but lost their last two H2H meetings prior? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Newcastle United vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Tips

Whatever happens at St. James' Park, one of Newcastle-Blackburn will progress to the EFL Cup's third round for the first time in over a year. Newcastle lost to semi-finalists Leicester City in R2 last term, while Blackburn were bested by Premier League side Sheffield United.

This match probably means more to the Toon, who remarkably haven't surpassed R2 since the 2016-17 campaign where they got to the quarter-finals. Defeats in successive years against Championship side Nottingham Forest (3-2, then 3-1) is sure to have dented their confidence, but they'll be quietly confident their cup fortunes can change.

Two summer signings impressed at the London Stadium – Callum Wilson and Man of the Match, midfielder Jeff Hendrick. The latter created one and scored another, while many believe Wilson's goalscoring prowess can propel them to new heights going forward.

Blackburn face another tricky away test after losing late to relegated Bournemouth at the weekend.

Tony Mowbray will expect influential displays from Bradley Johnson and Adam Armstrong again, as well as an improved defensive showing. They've failed to keep a clean sheet in all of their matches (14 games, including friendlies) since play resumed in June. Will that continue?

Newcastle United vs Blackburn Rovers Correct Score Predictions

Historically, Blackburn are ahead in the H2H record against Tuesday's hosts (nine wins, six defeats, four draws), but it's been eight years since their regular Premier League duels ended.

Newcastle are stronger on paper and should progress, but stranger things have happened.
