Blackburn vs Ipswich Prediction

It was a tight contest when these two sides met in the reverse fixture at Portman Road. Ipswich, however, showed class and superiority. This is a close one to call, but the away side are slim favorites.

Form and momentum favour Ipswich to win this contest away from home. The prospect of claiming the top spot is a major motivation.

My money is on Ipswich to win. They are full of confidence and will look to build on their win last time in the league.

I am backing a 1-0 correct score at full-time in favour of Ipswich as they are in top form in the league at the moment.
