The last victory against Preston, with a convincing 3-0 scoreline, not only ensured the early title but also highlighted Leicester's quality and determination. With a prolific attack and a solid defense, the Foxes have shown consistency and superiority, making it clear why they are this season's champions.

For Blackburn, the match takes on the contours of challenge and urgency. The team finds itself in a delicate position, fighting to avoid relegation to League One. Although the chances of relegation are remote, every point gained or lost can have a decisive impact on the club's fate.

The goalless draw against Coventry in the last round was a relief, but not enough to completely dispel concerns. With only one win in the last five games, Blackburn faces a battle not only against their opponents on the field but also against the weight of expectations and pressure.

The defensive resilience shown in three of the last five games is an encouraging aspect, indicating that Blackburn will not easily succumb to the challenges ahead. Additionally, the two victories in the last three away games provide a crucial confidence boost for the team.
