Blackburn vs QPR Prediction
The Hoops are at the 3rd spot on the standing with 56 points from 33 games. They won 16 times in the league while drawing on 8 and losing on 9 other occasions. They scored 49 in total while conceding a sum of 38 which shows some room for improvement in defense is needed.
Queens Park Rangers had a 2-1 league win as they beat Blackpool in their previous fixture. The side failed to score in 2 of the last 5 games thereby losing twice of the last 5 fixtures.
On the other hand, Riversiders reside at the 5th position on the table with 54 points. Of the 33 matches played, they won 15 games while drawing and losing on 9 games each. Their total goals to conceding ratio stands at 45:34 so far in the league.
Blackburn had a 0-1 losing effort in their last game against Sheffield United. Things have not been going that well in front of goal for the Rovers recently, with the side failing to score in 4 of the last 5 games. They will need to improve their attack to get anything out of this game.
QPR are looking to secure a league double over Blackburn for the first time since the 1970-71 season while they have not won away from home in their last 2 league matches.
We anticipate a home win this Saturday as the Riversiders won 60% of the home games played this season. Moreover, the visitors are out of form recently, losing the last 2 games on road.
