Blackburn vs Aston Villa 0-1, Carling Cup semi-final on 14th January

Blackburn – Aston Villa 0-1

monacovs montpellier

14th January – 20:00 GMT


  • Blackburn showed poor performance at Eastlands on Monday
  • We could see major changes to the team
  • They have 9 games (of which 5 were draws) without a Premier League win
  • Benni McCarthy is now a doubt after injuring himself and joins Vince Grella and Jason Roberts on the treatment table plus El-Hadji Diouf is suspened
  • David Dunn and Croatian Nikola Kalinic probably will lead the attack

Aston Villa

  • Aston Villa come into this game after a nine day rest
  • They beat 3-1 Blackburn reverse team at their last for FA Cup
  • Martin O’Neill has taken this competition seriously and will deploy his best team
  • I expect penalty specialist Brad Guzan to start in place of Brad Friedel
  • Villa look to have the quality to go to the end and win the,  but may be happy with a draw, preferably a scoring one.

MY PREDICTION ASTON VILLA NOT TO LOSE with possible result 1-1


BEST ODD for X2 – 1.40 from UNIBET
