Wow Mystic Mug is cutting it fine this week!
Lawro says on the BBC that Blackburn Rovers will win 2-0
Mystic says the opposite, 2-0 to the mighty claret and blue.
Lawro explained:"'Aston Villa were absolutely outstanding last week in the 2-2 draw with Manchester United. I thought from one to 11 that it was one of the best performances from a team I have seen all season. The youngsters in the team were vibrant, they had pace and had a real go at Sir Alex Ferguson's men. But one of the reasons for that is United will always come and attack, which suited Villa. They will have a problem at Blackburn though because Rovers play in a much more closed fashion and will stop Villa playing. I think this represents a more difficult game for Aston Villa than Manchester United did. Blackburn have improved lately and got some good results and their confidence will be high. I would not mind betting that Blackburn will win this. "
