Blackburn Rovers and Hull City meet, in a match for this phase of the FA Cup (3rd Round). In the last 3 years there is only record of 2 direct confrontations between these two teams: one on 13-02-2016, which ended in a Hull City victory by (0-2), and another one on 26-09-2015 , which ended in a draw by (1-1). Particular attention is required for the home / away condition, since both teams present significantly different results at home and abroad.
The home team reaches this phase of the FA Cup (3rd Round) after having played previous rounds with: Crewe Alexandra and Barnet. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 5 draws and 1 loss in away matches, with 27 goals scored and 12 conceded; against 9 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 28 goals scored and 13 suffered. In the last match that they disputed, for League One, they tied with Rotherham United by (1-1). In the last 10 home matches Blackburn Rovers has won 5, tied 4 and lost 1. The team has scored goals against the opponent in 7 of the last 10 matches, so his defense needs to improve, but his attack has scored regularly, as he has always scored at least one goal in the last 10 matches. In 15 games, they suffered the first goal 4 times, but got the comeback in 3.
Blackburn comes to this game after a foreign draw, a ball, in the visit to the Rotherham field. The team of the house usually acts in a 4-3-3, favoring a more leisurely style of play, orienting, preferably, their attacks through the central corridor. The three arrows pointing to the rival’s goal will be Antonsson, Graham and Bennett, being the player responsible for defining and leading the attacks the English Dack. The local coach must have all the players at his disposal.
The visiting team will make its debut in this edition of the FA Cup with the intention of conquering a positive result, taking advantage of the home factor. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 1 win, 6 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 12 goals scored and 26 conceded; against 5 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 32 goals scored and 24 suffered. The team comes to this match after an away loss with Bolton Wanderers by (1-0). In the last 10 away matches Hull City has won 1, tied 4 and lost 5. Defensive consistency has not been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they suffered the first goal 7 times and only managed 1 comeback. In the last 15 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 4 of their 9 goals between minutes (16′-30 ‘).
The Hull City comes to this unmotivated performance, after a foreign snub, 1-0, in the visit to the Bolton arena. The visiting team usually acts in a tactical system in 4-3-3, privileging fast transitions, mainly through the flanks. In this tactical scheme, the three most advanced players are Bowen, Dicko and Toral. The coach of Hull can not count on Greg Luer, Ryan Mason and Abel Hernandez, all injured.
