Brentford vs QPR
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 3rd March 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Griffin Park (London).
Brentford has been one of the best teams at home in the recent match-days. Right now, they are unbeaten in their last eight games in front of their home crowd, and the last six were wins. They sit a long way (in terms of position) from the top six, but that translates to just a gap of ten points. If maybe, just maybe, they could keep on their form, there’s no telling where the team might be at the end of the season.
QPR has been one of the worst sides in the league, and then they go on and defeat Leeds, a title contender. There’s an asterisk attached though since the Rangers were at home, and for most of the game, they settled for dull defensive tactics. It has a low probability to work on the road, and that too against Brentford, which has seemed unstoppable at home.
Brentford vs QPR Head-to-head (h2h)
- Six of the last eight wins belong to the teams that hosted the tie.
- Brentford recorded four of the last five wins.
- Only once has a team scored more than three goals. It was by Brentford, and it came in a cup game.

- Except for a single loss back in 2003, Brentford has a 100% unbeaten record in front of their home crowd.
Brentford vs QPR Prediction
Brentford won their last six home ties in a row and recorded goals in their last 12. Also, they remained unbeaten in 17 of their last 22 home fixtures and found the back of the net in 21 of these 22. Moreover, they have remained unbeaten at home against this team for the last 16 years, and except for the lone loss in 2003, they boast of a 100% unbeaten record.
Even better, they won the last three meetings at this venue, while having scored in 100% of their encounters this decade. QPR, meanwhile, lost five of their last six matches and was winless in nine of their last 11. On the road, they are on a streak of six winless games and has just a single win in their last 12.
Taking all these into account, and Brentford’s top-six aim, along with the additional home advantage they enjoy, the team should pick the three points.
One thing to be noted is QPR’s win against Leeds the last match-day. It might be at home, but considering the stature of the loser, it deserves to be accounted for. The game will surely be tough for the hosts, and they will have to sweat it out for the win. They most probably won’t be able to record a huge win owing to the slight morale-boost the Rangers have just gotten.
For that reason, and due to QPR’s struggles on the road, the likely scoreline would be 1-0, 2-0 or maybe 3-0, for the hosts.
