Blackburn vs Huddersfield England – Championship Date: Sunday, 2 January 2021 Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET Venue: Ewood Park.
Blackburn have been in spectacular form the last several weeks, and they have rightfully got back into the title-race. They are in possession of the third spot at the moment, and need a surplus of just one point to get to the top-most position.
And considering the poor form of the top two teams, chances are very high that Blackburn are about to climb higher.
Meanwhile, Huddersfield have been on inconsistent run for quite some time now. But it needs to be noted that most of their wins have come at home, while on the road they have been a mess.
They are conceding goals in plenty, and it’s really doubtful if they would be able to hold on against such an in-form opponent.

Blackburn vs Huddersfield Prediction & Analysis
Blackburn won 2-1 at home the last match-day, against Barnsley. They are on a six-game winning streak, and also an eight-match unbeaten run. They have been scoring goals in plenty all through this stretch, and now they have a realistic chance to climb to the top of the table.
On the other hand, Huddersfield did win 3-2 at home the past game week. But they have a single win on the road in the past four months, and just three in total this season. Moreover, they have considerably struggled with their defense during this run as well.
Considering these observations, expect a win for Blackburn this Sunday at their home.
