Blackburn vs QPR
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 7 November 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Ewood Park.
The Rovers have been the best team in terms of offense this season in the Championship. They have scored the most number of goals so far in the competition, and they also have been fairly consistent at home through the past several months.
However, they have had the misfortune to take on some of the best teams in the last few weeks, and that has affected their form a bit. And this has turned the team desperate for a win, and we can expect the best of efforts from them this weekend for the three points.
Meanwhile, the Rangers have been one of the worst teams in the league in 2020-21, and barring some lucky wins against some of the weakest teams in the competition, they have had a terrible run so far. Particularly on the road, the team has been on a disastrous run for the past several months.
And to pile on, Tony Mowbray’s men also do have a great h2h record over the years against this opponent.
Likely, expect Blackburn to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.

- They had also won five of the previous six encounters.

Blackburn vs QPR: Prediction
Mowbray’s men were held to a goalless draw the last match-day, by Middlesbrough. In the meantime, Mark Warburton’s men recorded a 0-1 win on the road against Derby.
Going on, the Rovers had lost just four times at home all through 2020, and two of these defeats had come against Leeds and Fulham – both of whom are playing in the Premier League at the moment. And another loss had come against Reading, the current toppers of the table.
On the other hand, Warburton’s men were winless in 10 of their last 13 overall games, and they remained so in 10 of their former 11 games on the road.
Furthermore, Mowbray’s men have a terrific h2h record over this opponent, particularly at this stadium.
Taking these factors into account, expect a winning performance from Blackburn this Saturday.
