Blackburn may be embroiled in an unsettled FA Cup argument with Liverpool, but until that beef resumes for a replay at Ewood Park it’s strictly league business for Rovers.
Their return to more rudimentary matters begins against Bolton at home, but any feeling of eased pressure is quickly dashed by Ladbrokes’ decision to lump the former Premier League champions in with Chelsea and Bayern Munich in their Enhanced Treble.
What was an 11/4 multiple is now a 7/2 chance and each side’s chances of landing a win are explored below:
Chelsea to beat PSG
The Blues have a perfect scoring record at Stamford Bridge this season and have only lost once in that time.
They have won their last two at the ground in the Champions League scoring nine times in those outings.
There is also the added psychological bonus of having dumped their French opponents out at this exact stage of the competition last season.
Bayern Munich to beat Shakhtar Donetsk
Since the Ukrainian side held Pep Guardiola’s side to a goalless draw in the first leg, the German super powers have taken their frustrations out on their next opponents.
Four wins on the spin have come with 15 goals scored and just two conceded, while Shakhtar lost to German opposition at this stage last year and have lost four times from seven games in the country.
Blackburn to beat Bolton
For all the improvement Neil Lennon has managed to inject into Bolton, he still hasn’t happened upon a winning formula on the road.
Wanderers have lost four consecutive away games in the Championship and have won just once in their last six.
Blackburn, meanwhile, have only been bested once in the last eight.
