England FA Cup fifth round
Leicester City VS Blackburn Rovers

On Tuesday evening, Leicester City will host Blackburn Rovers at the King Power Stadium. Blackburn Rovers compete in the Championship.

Blackburn is currently enjoying a solid run of form across all tournaments and is looking to pull off a giant-killing performance against the Premier League team.

The Rovers have gone eight games without suffering a loss in all competitions, and they have won their last three straight encounters.

Jon Dahl Tomasson, Blackburn's manager, has made it possible for the team to play in the championship playoffs.

The Rovers are now in fourth position in the rankings, three points ahead of Norwich City in seventh place.

The previous two matches in the Premier League were both losses for Leicester City.

The defeat at Old Trafford against Manchester United by a score of 3-0 was followed by a defeat at the hands of Arsenal at home by a score of 1-0 over the weekend.

Brendan Rodgers's team keeps going back and forth between getting points and not scoring goals on a regular basis.

The remaining 180 minutes of the Foxes' football match were played without them scoring a goal.

Due to an illness, the manager may not have James Madison available for the encounter in the fifth round of the FA Cup. Madison is one of the most vital offensive players for the manager's team.

James Justin, Jonny Evans, and Ryan Bertrand, who are all defenders, aren't expected to play in the game because they are sick.

Even if Tomasson wanted to, he may not be able to field his best team in this match. The head coach of Blackburn currently has seven players on the injured list for the squad.

Because of their injuries, defenders Daniel Ayala, Scott Wharton, and Clinton Mola are not expected to participate in the game. 

Sam Barnes, Adam Wharton, and Bradley Dack, all of whom play in the middle of the field, may not make it to the match. Due to a calf injury, goalkeeper Thomas Kaminski will not be able to play.

In all competitions, Blackburn's record while playing away from home is 8 wins, 4 losses, and 10 draws. They have let in 28 goals while scoring only 20 of their own.

A one-goal victory for Rovers against Norwich City was enough to advance them to the next round of the FA Cup. When they played Birmingham City in the fourth round, the club opted to repeat the game.

At Ewood Park, the score ended in a tie, 2-2. Due to an own goal by City in extra time, Rovers advanced to the next round despite the rematch ending in a scoreless tie.

In the third round of the FA Cup, Leicester City prevailed against Gillingham by a score of 1-0. The Foxes won the fourth-round match against Leicester City by a score of 1-0.

Despite the fact that Madison will most likely be absent from the encounter, Rodgers' squad has a higher overall quality. It is important for Rodgers to have a quality team in order to get the club back into shape.
