Blackburn Rovers vs Newcastle United: FA Cup Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

Newcastle United is set to travel to Ewood Park to face Championship team Blackburn Rovers for FA Cup Round 5. The visitors head into the match following a 4-1 defeat against Arsenal in the Premier League, while Blackburn secured a 1-1 draw with Norwich City in the Championship in their last game. Blackburn, with six FA Cup trophies have a history in the competition. Although they may not prioritize the FA Cup this season, they have showed goal-scoring abilities, beating Cambridge United 5-2 in the third round and Wrexham 4-1 in the previous rounds.

Currently sitting 16th in the Championship, Blackburn faces challenges in their league campaign, only four points above the relegation zone Newcastle, on the other hand, comes into the match after a 4-1 loss to Arsenal, marking the end of a five-game unbeaten run for the Magpies. Eddie Howe’s side currently holds the eighth position in the Premier League, facing a big gap of 10 points behind fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur and 15 points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa. While Champions League qualification appears challenging, securing European football remains crucial for the club.

Despite the league challenges, Newcastle has set its sights on the FA Cup. The Magpies have won the FA Cup on six occasions and were last present in the final in 1999, losing to Manchester United. In this season’s FA Cup, Newcastle displayed solidity, beating Sunderland 3-0 in the third round and securing a 2-0 away victory against Fulham in the fourth round. The upcoming clash against Blackburn represents an opportunity for Newcastle to progress further in the competition.
